    I agree with Dick’s comment, though it’s usually a day or so before I get to the magazine. I loved the above cartoon where the wife is greeting the couple at the door. Reminds me of one of my jokester pals who once told me, “I don’t care what anyone says, I like you.” Oh, yeah, we’re still speaking. Gotta keep that sense of humor.

    Very funny, as always.

  • Hidear Friends,
    I am one of the great admirers of Saturday Evening Post.”Just let him know you aren’t afraid of him”…it is okay from the side of dog’s owner….may be he will have some kind of inner glee how the other person reacts. It cannot be said good manners.

    Thanks a bunch.
