    But it’s a drawing of a spider web. Creepy drawing? I don’t think so.

    I find that the shadow of Peewee’s shoes to have shifted to the right and left in panel #3, but in the first two panels those shadows are only to the left.

    For Nancy’s shoe shadows, in the first two panels, the shadows are to the left and the right, while in panel, #3 Nancy’s shoe shadows are only on the left side of said shoes.

    Even the dog in panel #4 is a jumper!

    And a dog jumping competition comes to mind.

    Three Rocks can only do so much. Sluggo is a geometric property of the strip. The cloudburst is a GAG.

    I’m left wondering if Ernie overlooked the diagonal angles of the rain storm in panels #1 and #2, delivering Nancy’s appearances on a telephone.

    If I imagine myself looking in from outside Sluggo’s broken window in panel #3, the rain direction has a different angular direction of the rain storm signifiers in panels #1 and #2.

    Those rain drop diagonals are reversed and Ernie provides us viewers with no outside point-of-view of panel #3 where Sluggo’s voice appears.

    I enjoy this kind of Bushmiller puzzle-treatment that Ernie often gives to his strips.

    No Hover Hats in today’s strips!

    In strip #2 a cop has lost his hat to the sidewalk or road because BOZO knocked it off the officer’s head with a piece of hurled coal.

    “Hurled Coal” is a pair of words not often seen anywhere.

    I can’t recall seeing a Bushmiller strip with a full moon.

    Endless crescent moons, but full? I dunno where to look for one of those.

    I think of that as a memory problem of my own more than a Bushmiller problem.

    I think that panel #3 of the strip is awesome!

    Yes, Sluggo succumbed to old age and couldn’t make that score.

    We’ll never know for sure, but(t) the umpire’s comic reaction to Sluggo’s Blow Gun suggests a sharp object; like a dart-game-dart.

    Such would upstage Sluggo’s Pea Shooter and those darts have diameters larger than what Sluggo is using.
