Sid’s Rent-a-Truck Part 1

Lars Å from Sweden asked to see this sequence from the fifth week of Ernie. Effie had already made her appearance a couple weeks earlier, hence the reference to deja vu. By the way, for those of you who weren’t in my high school French class taught by the laid back Mr. Gobin who didn’t teach French too well (He always had this lazy grin on his face. I can see him now leaning back in his chair grinning at Ilona, the 19 year old blonde Hungarian immigrant. Whenever the topic came up, we would ask him,”What’s your favorite sport, Mr. Gobin?” He’d lean back in his chair, eyes half closed and say “Parlor rugby.”) Oh, I was going to tell all you people who didn’t study French with Mr. Gobin that “deju vu” was French for “already seen”. But you knew that. The Bayonne Tattler is the local newspaper. But you knew that too.

By the way I’m still working on the books. I worked all day today on the 2003-2004 collection. It’s 5 o’clock. Time for a little relaxin’!

  1. Oh Bud,

    Don’t do this to me. You’re the only reason I buy the paper.
    How about this. Sell all your strips from the beginning over. For Better or Worse, Snoopy and Doonsbury are doing it. This could be an easy retirement fund for you.
    I’ll give you some good advice. Try it, if it doesn’t work stop it. If it does work it could work for a long time and make some easy money for you and Sid.
    I will truly miss your characters and humor.

    All my best regards,
    Todd Hawkinson

      I’m working on it. It’s going to take a few years though. The dailies from 2003-2004 should be ready this week. I’ve had a heck of a time.

    I saved an Ernie strip for years but lost it. It showed Ernie selecting coffee beans so carefully and then letting the ground coffee boil and boil in a percolator.
    Can you reprint it in your blog? Please?
