  1. That cartoon showing all the books ‘n stuff on the bed is me, especially since I lost my wife. As a Catholic it helps to say Rosary … hardly get thru a couple decades or so! Btw, as a kid I delivered the Chicago Daily News but occasionally filled in delivering the Post for a friend on vacation.

  2. When I worked a lot of overtime, more than once I wondered if I was getting up or going to bed.

  3. Got a kick out of the one where the guy is wondering how they can slam six doors. I have neighbors like that also.

  4. Thanks for the Smiles 😉 The doors here slam mostly in the morning, so I won’t complain! Counting the bouncing ping pong balls is an interesting idea 😉
