    I’ve tried double point needles, I get so confused. But then again, I’m just a so-so knitter. I can’t knit anything more complicated than a scarf or a blanket. I’ll have to try doing the double point thing with 2 circular needles and see if I can do small circular things like socks and mittens. (Mostly I just give up on knitting small tubular things and crochet them, then switch to knitting for any straight parts.)

    Age in a funny thing. Trump is a mere 4 years older than I am, but he seems to come from a previous generation. Biden is 7½ years older then I am but seems like my slightly older brother.

    I remember in 2008, when Obama was elected, Garrison Keillor (a bit more than 7 years older than I am) on A Prairie Home Companion was bemoaning the fact that such a young person was the President. Something about the torch being passed on to a new generation, yada yada. My thought when Obama (11½ years my junior) was elected? “Finally someone of MY generation is President!”

    Good observation! I’m (only) 74, most of the time in GoComics forums I feel like an elder statesman, but often here in Luckovich-land, I feel like a wet behind the ears kid. I personally know a lot of people older the Biden that are very mentally agile. And every one of them is planing to vote for Biden.

    This is one major reason my current cats are indoor cats.

    I’ve been reading this since about 1/2 way through the first run. Each of the repeats has varied a little, some storylines left out or shortened, some details changed.

    The words change but the drawings don’t. The strip ended because Jon could no longer pay his illustrator. He owns the rights to the words but not the pictures (which is why sometimes the speech bubble tails seem to point to the wrong person). I wish the story would continue. If I could draw, I’d volunteer to illustrate it.

    I wonder if there is any fanfic out there somewhere on the interwebs that continues the tale?

    Thank Cat for that bush!

    I didn’t go outside to look for Northern Lights, it was raining here. It should be clear tonight, so maybe I’ll see some. If they are high enough in the sky to see over all the trees I live amongst.

    It’s the children that I am most concerned about.

    THAT’S where I saw Gary Oldman before! I know Sirius Black looked familiar, but couldn’t place the face.

    Wonderful movie!

    That was where I first learned ofThe Question Game.

    I don’t recall what the actual dialog was but this is an example of The Question Game:

    “What’s the question game?”

    “You’ve never heard of it?”

    “Why should I have?”

    “Were you raised under a rock?”

    And on and on until one person can’t answer with a question. It’s fun to play spontaneously with someone else who knows of it when you are with a group of people who don’t know of it. It’s fun to respond to a question with a question and see if the other person ‘gets it’ and responds in kind. (It can drive spouses batty when they are bystanders)
