I’d ramble about the recycled art in this one (panels 4 and 6), but I am very sleepy at the moment.
Anyway, the story below is a 100% true thing that happened to me sometime around 1981.
Mom is driving Shamus and Patrick past the Veterans Hospital. Shamus is about 10 years old and Pat is about 8.
Mom: (Nodding towards the hospital.) Looks like they finished building the gazebo.
Patrick: Who built it?
Mom: The veterans. Someone decided it would be a good thing for the patients so have a project, so they built that gazebo.
Shamus: (Looking at all the many cars in the parking lot.) Which one is the gazebo?
They still tease me about this from time to time.
