    Sequel to “Paper Moon” in which Moze and Addie (Ryan and Tatum O’Neal), go to France. Addie pretends to be a boarding school classmate of Madeline, and they approach her Papa demanding money for “wrongful incitement to have an unnecessary appendectomy.”

    A papa and his daughter walk by. / Then he turns and exhales a deep sigh. / “What is wrong, Father dear?” / “I’m just sad to be here, / The place Rose Parade floats go to die.”

    Hi all,

    Because the Throwback Masterpieces seemed to be well-received a few weeks back and there’s been some more discussion of revisiting old posts, I’m experimenting with making the strip’s Thursday selections throwbacks to an earlier era (i.e re-runs), starting with this one. Not sure if it will stick, but thought it might be fun to try for a bit. See what you think.

    Steve

    I’ll report that cab driver for dropping / us off here. He then goes without stopping. / We are nowhere, instead / of what I clearly said, / “Drive us both to the Target for shopping.”

    They both wanted to rest on the bench, / but his daughter could not stand the stench / of the blooms that abound / on that feculent mound. / (It’s a tasty cheese smell to the French.)

    I have added a comment there (awaiting Mr. Melcher’s approval) pointing to the artist info I used to point to here. So far, 14 works by this artist, have been used here (17 times total, including this Throwback Thursday repeat, and 2 earlier repeats).

    In the garden at Mr. Caillebotte’s/ the flowers are not kept in pots/ and the gardeners there/ are tres “laissez faire”/ which accounts for the uncovered spots…

    For somebody like Courbet/ Caillebotte’s best would be mere child’s play/ and his finest display/ would elicit “Oy vey !”/ from somebody like Manet..
