    One of the things I really like about this strip is the timelessness of it. I first read it as a kid in the 1970’s when your dad wrote it, and it was one of my favorites back then. Brutus and family could be living now or 50 years ago.

    Once you get all your toys up in the tree, do not throw Kewpie Dog at it.

    Well, having the baseball stuck in a tree is better than saying “I threw the ball at it and I broke your bedroom window!” (Not speaking from experience)

    I remember walking to the corner grocery store with my mom one summer day back in the late 60’s. We started talking about our favorite daily comic strip. She said hers was a Born Loser gag where Brutus let the guy behind him go ahead of him in line at the grocery store because he only had one item and that guy wins a big prize for being the store’s 10 thousandth customer (or thereabouts). I found out years later it was the very first gag that Chip gave his father that was published! Keep up the good work Chipster!!

    how about you use a chainsaw to cut down the tree… or just use a ladder and climb up and get it yourself.

    When my older brother did things like that, I went up the tree and got them down. I tried to drop them on his head.
