This is one of the best comic strips I've ever read -- I've already plugged them once, but it bears repeating.

Someone is having shooting practice. We think it's an armored unit near here. Multiple splody-booms, more than I've ever experienced in a week here, never mind an hour. It's unnerving at first, but you get used to it.

i feel: okay okay

Thanks for the link, I see why you rec'd it very funny. My dog tried to do that w/the new kitty, she only weighted .9 lbs, But she (kitty) decided she would rather ride on the dogs back.

Did I ever post the story of what a friend's cat did to get back at her slobbery, affectionate Irish setter?

I don't know, but feel free.

Fort Devens, back in the '80s. Dunno if they were regular Army, Guard, or Reserve, but they fired 105s during the day. We lived in Littleton, about six miles away, and the house would shake when the shocks from the firings hit it.

Dood. I grew up in Harvard, at the top of Littleton Road. Class of '86 at Bromfield.

Small world.

Littleton High School, class of 1984. We lived on Great Road (Route 119), just west of I-495.

Hee! So you know the wonder that is Kimball's. I've been waxing rhapsodic about it for months.

Also, you grew up about 7 miles from me. Too funny.

You wouldn't recognize Kimball's now. The Cow Is Gone! I asked about it. They said they took it down a few years ago, and have no plans to put it back up. And the area behind them is now a driving range, and a putt-putt course, and a "family fun center". The ice cream stand is still there, but it's lost in the nonsense.

(The rest of you, don't mind us. We're reminiscing in the 80s here.)

I worked there right before I went back in the Army, for gas money. My mom is retired, but she still works there before school lets outfor the summer and after the kids go back, during the day. She worked there before she met my dad -- she was in Beverly Kimball's wedding and Bev was my mom's matron of honor. Then after she had me and my sister, she worked there on Sundays as a break from us. ;-)

I loved working there -- best job ever, even though it's really physical work. And the ice cream is still the best ever.
