Not in Oregon.
Must not have any Legos handy – they had to use a fork.
Why is there a tiny shopping cart behind the brown ankle boots?
Why is Phil the only one with a mask?
Apparently your dog is better trained than my bride’s. I can’t walk barefoot in our yard without those “dog mines” everywhere.
He’s Covin19 +?
The last time I did that I almost stepped on a snake (pygmy rattler, they’re really small and blend into the lawn) in the back yard, from them on always wore shoes or at least flip flops when walking outside. Walking outside barefoot anymore is not the most sensible thing a person can do.
Not in northern Illinois. Sideways and roads were hot enough to blister.
Not a good place to leave the fork when everyone’s barefoot
Gee. Vacation’s starting early…
Apple: Teachers. Fork: restaurant workers. Mask: Hospital staff. Steering wheel: Delivery drivers. Microscope: Scientists. Grocery cart: Grocery workers-Me.
Hard to do Spencer’s Butt… Butte in bare feet…
Central Coast of CA is going to the beach today (socially distant, of course).
The idea began with “Baby Blues” co-creator Rick Kirkman, who contacted some of his fellow cartoonists about coordinating a campaign while sheltering in place. Kirkman’s syndicate, King Features, and the National Cartoonists Society helped boost the initiative, as did Andrews McMeel Syndication.
Not when you have a dog!
Not while cleaning up all the debris from the hail storm.
I like how the baby is doing ‘Happy Baby” pose.
If you go to the “Lio” strip, you will find an explanation for all the symbols (fork, apple, wheel, microscope, etc) to represent all the cartoonists’ thanks to ALL the essential workers (delivery drivers, grocery workers, garbage collectors, teachers, medical professionals, etc).
And if you are barefoot, watch out for the fork on the step…
My yard is full of white clover and bees so nope on the bare feet outside. Inside, however, is another matter.
Growing up in Missouri, we learned that hard way not to do that. Too much clover in the yard.
Would love to go barefoot, but when you live on top of limestone, that’s a bit uncomfortable. Now add the cactus, agarita, yucca, thistles, brambles, bur clover, and stickers of various kinds — well, barefoot is a right bad idea.
I wonder of this strip is intended to tick off those who dislike the “gotta love August” strips? d;o)
(Don’t include me among them!)
Nope. We have horses and chickens. Sandals with toe caps maybe. Not even flip flops for me. Misery is walking barefoot in a grassy meadow and finding out it is a cow pasture the hard way.
Not around where we live at barefoot, stickers, cannot afford to treat. Big location surround us has stickers.
When my brother and I were 3-4yo, the pediatrician told mom to let us go barefoot whenever possible due to both of us having extremely narrow feet. It worked!
My brother ended up with size 16 wide, and I’m a petite 9.5 wide. And I still go barefoot when possible, in spite of sandspurs getting everywhere.
Maybe we shouldn’t have gone barefoot quite so much?
Not in Switzerland this week. 15 Celsius / 60 Fahrenheit this week
My mom and I used to walk barefoot along the Atlantic beaches in Eastern Maryland in Late Nov/Early Dec. Yes, we were crazy. :o)
Formal flip flops
Ya gotta love June!
Yes, but please put shoes on before entering the grocery store.
Oh, and Thanks and you are welcome.
Got all 6 — mask, apple, shopping cart, steering wheel, fork, microscope — way to go Jan
Found ’em! Cleverly done Jan ♥
It’s June! The pollen is hip deep on the ground (ants have hips, right?), the wind is gusting up to 30 MPH and the temperature is 50º F at 4:00 pm.
I love that Jan put in our thanks to all the front line personnel in the one panel! <3 (Did you see them all? (a supermarket shopping cart, apples for teachers, a fork to thank food service workers and a microscope to salute medical researchers). <3
I have followed this comic for quite a while but never wrote a comment until now. As an essential worker (in the ER and in teaching), I would like to thank you and all of the cartoonists who took part in the National Cartoonists Society challenge to use the symbols in their comics today (well, yesterday, since I’m writing this on Monday).
Methinks the blond boy is about to get tickled silly! :-D
How come only Phil is wearing a mask?
Shouldn’t Wally be the one with the mask on since he lives next door and not with Val and the kids?
Not in Phoenix unless you like fried feet.
My wife never wears socks from May to the first of December. Sandals only.
