Sue Ellen, I did not take your hope for an announcement as nagging – I read it as a fan who hopes Georgia is doing better and who is looking forward to an indication of something to look forward to. And I agree with you – even if the update is that we’re going to have a wait a while, having a date in mind to wait FOR kind of makes it like a holiday to anticipate.
I’m catching up on these, so I have the advantage of being able to see into the future and come back and report on it, and…you nailed it.
Agree with everyone – thank you Lennie. I never get to comment as often as I want (f***ing day job keeps me WAY busier than I wish it did, but I’m grateful to have a job and keep a roof over our heads) but when I have time to get caught up, I love seeing the interplay. And it will be a blast to see occasional new strips snuck in. Wishing you all the best Lennie! Thank you for making time for us, and for all the years of bringing a little frivolity to our lives. It makes a positive difference – it really REALLY does.
Not necessarily. I did not like working in physical groups (true for grade school through grad school), and I do not care for digital groups (though I’ll take inter-office chat over having to talk on the phone any day for most things – complicated stuff still requires video or phone, I admit). Some of us just aren’t group people in any form : )
I’m high risk, so I should be in the next group, but…I’m not sure I’ll ever go to a store again without a mask or three. I wear 3 at present – including an N95 mask – and I only go at 6 in the morning and as infrequently as I can. Who knew that buying groceries would become a life or death adventure?
That was exactly how I read it too. Yeah, he might be a bit jealous that she’s found success so “easily” when he’s had to work so hard for it, but more than that, he’s overwhelming proud of her and supportive. From my own experience, it really is possible to experience both emotions simultaneously. And yeah, I also think he’s enjoying the fact that she’s dealing with the “business end of writing” as you so aptly put it. Just a little.
I also loathe 10, and if any of you use Adobe Professional for work……stay on XI as long as possible (or a previous version, if you have that). The “new” version that came out a year ago added absolutely NO advantages, NO improvements, and all they seem to have done was to make things harder to find and to take longer to do. I abhor it. Vehemently.
I have china from both grandmothers, and although we don’t use it every day, we use it several times a week. I don’t have kids, and there’s no one in my family to leave it to who would want or have use for it, so I figure – let’s USE it! Sure a few pieces may get broken along the way, but…that’s life. And every time we use it, we mingle old memories with new, which is how things should be in my opinion. What good is anything if all it does is collect dust?
How you train dogs or cats not to barf when they get sick? Or to wait until they’re let outside? I’d love to know that trick!
We have a small zoo too (cats and dogs – 8 total in the house, including my mom’s). A few years ago, when we were moving, we designed a custom manufactured home so that my mom could live with us and have her own space (it’s a triple wide, and she has her own entrance and rooms and a kitchenette and everything), and that was one of the “upgrades” we went with – no carpet anywhere, in any room, and more resilient flooring. Area rugs are a lot easier to clean, and the flooring we have is easy to clean and looks like wood, even though it’s not. Terrific stuff. And yeah, we hear a lot of tik-tik-tik on the floors!
