    /// The Depression years were unforgiving,

    but big households could make life worth living.

    “When eatin’ with kin, ya’

    love rural Virginia,”

    John-Boy said on a Walton’s Thanksgiving.

    Fred and Melinda were really hitting it off, then Aunt Jenny reminded them they were cousins.

    The Jefferson are all smiling because this is the first Thanksgiving after their state legalized weed.

    This looks a lot like Rockwell’s “Freedom from Want” created in November 1942 and published in the Saturday Evening Post on March 6, 1943.

    They thought it was just a fun game of musical chairs, but some didn’t realize that only the six winners got to eat.

    The Turnkey Operation

    The family aunts hover and do not seat

    They bring out the food and watch others eat.

    Clearing dishes, the feast celebrated,

    Packing leftovers, all refrigerated:

    And thus the cycle’s again complete.

    Out of sheer cussedness and despair at the current state of editing, that should be " Honeycutts’ " with the apostrophe after the “s”.

    A Happy Thanksgiving 

    has info and links that point to more info about this 2014, oil on linen painting. Don’t blame Mr. Melcher for the off date. He trusted the blog author where he found the image: 

    who listed the artist’s birth year as the painting’s date.


    Again, a larger strip image is shown by (Ctrl- or right-) clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s MASTERPIECE #3034 (November 23, 2022) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment, and using the dropdown menu (even larger if you trim what’s after .png from the URL). I have added a comment there pointing to info about this artist I used to point to here. First work by this artist used here.

    After another disastrous year on the farm, the family was both surprised and overjoyed that Momma somehow managed to find a turkey to cook for dinner … until Jody asked, “Has anybody seen my puppy?”

    /// Grandpa can’t chew things tougher than curds.

    He is toothless and cannot form words

    without lisping. He said,

    “Thupper thoon or I’m dead.”

    So they fed him just like baby birds.

    Hi all! Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holidays. There seems to be an issue with uploading today’s (Monday’s) comic, so I’ve written to GoComics to try to get to the bottom of it. Hopefully the new one will be up soon. If you’d like a sneak preview, today and tomorrow’s posts will be the ones that went up on the Priceless blog, Facebook, and Twitter pages last Monday and Tuesday (during the Great CoComics Blackout of 2022.) Thanks! Steve
