For help on how to follow a comic title,
Gotta look out for those ladders. Sometime back, I was showing my wife around the garage and explaining what some of the tools were and what they were used for. I got around to the corner and put my hand on the step ladder. I got misty eyed and a tear ran down my cheek as I told her, “THIS is my step ladder. I never knew my REAL ladder.”
Betts likes to think of herself as a carpenter and Gunther as a board to be shaped and “improved.” I believe that eventually he and Luann will get together. She won’t try to change him from a round peg to fit into a square cubby hole like Betts is trying to do. Gunther has to know that he’s smarter than Betts and should come to recognize that he’ll never be what she wants to change him into becoming. Luann and Gunther will fit together smoothly if everybody will just leave them alone. For example, who wouldathunk that Toni and Brad would work out so well together? Give’em space and time and they’ll get together.
Kinda like the Kardashians — they’re famous for being famous. They haven’t DONE anything, they’re simply attention whores. I do NOT understand why ANYBODY cares what they do or how they dress.
<<< Sexy lingerie like what we’d see at Victoria’s Secret is just a reminder to us that we’re no longer the slim, sexy-looking women we used to be. >>> Yeah, everybody’s body changes as we age. BUT, a gift of sexy linterie really is for both. He likes to see her in it — even if briefly — and she should be pleased that he still sees her as a beautiful, sexy woman. He knows that she might have put on a few pounds and have stretch marks from having two babies, but he also knows that he has something of a gut now and remembers that he had hair when they got married. But loving someone means looking past the imperfections caused by aging and admiring — as well as desiring — the person you love even more deeply now because of the seasoning that life gives us all.
Shannon’s the kind of kid that’ll make Luann want to have a dog. As much as I enjoy this strip, I HATE to see Shannon come back. Comics are supposed to be funny. Nuthin’ funny about Shannon.
<<< At least he’s not trying to sleep with her…..I guess? >>>YET!
All I know is that 47 years ago when I got married, I had hair. My wife complains about grey hair and I tell her some of us would like to have a head full of grey hair.
<<After a while, even a dog gets tired of chasing after the ball. >>See, THIS is one reason bowling is better than golf.1. You don’t have to chase the ball — it comes back to you.2. You don’t get sunburned in the bowling alley3. You don’t get rained on in the bowling alley4. It’s not far to the potty at the bowling alley5. It’s not far to the snack bar at the bowling alley6. It’s not far to the bar bar at the bowling alley7. You don’t have to remain silent at the bowling alley8. You don’t need an expensive electric cart at the bowling alley9. You don’t have people behind you wanting you to play faster at the bowling alley10. High score wins like in a REAL game11. Bowling shoes and ball are cheaper than golf clubs and shoes
I like Shannon the way Mr. Wilson like Dennis.
In 1985 I lived in Houston, working for Gulf Oil. Chevron bought Gulf and my job went to Concord, CA. They sent me to Concord for six weeks to help the transition from two methods of doing things into one. Got called to the manager’s office and offered a job. WONDERFUL! Wouldn’t have to look for a job and that part of the world is beautiful. THEN I spent some time with a realtor and decided I was better off in Houston without a job than I would be in Concord with one. A house comparable to the one I paid $50,000 for in Houston would be between one-eighty and two-forty depending on how close to the BART station it is. There were Chevron people praying for a transfer to Houston. In 1985, a hundred grand would buy a lot of house in Houston. They wanted to sell their house in the Bay area, move to Houston and pay cash for a nice house and bank a bunch of money for retirement or kid’s college fund. Lost of people have moved from California to Texas, and the problem is that they bring their liberal politics with’em.
