Production Notes:

Hey! It’s good to be back. That was a longer vacation than I had planned, but sometimes we need to take a break. Now I have a lot of work to catch up with.

Fences are sometimes useful, but they do not create good neighbors. I’ve heard people say “the wall” will solve all our problems. I don’t think they are aware of the real problems we face, like climate change, aging infrastructure, religious/ethnic bigotry, and a culture based on violent oppression (not a complete list). But, hey, that’s just my opinion. I can be kind of a grump.


Thatch: So then he says my kids are hoodlums, so he’s going to build a fence right on the property line. And he says I’m going to pay for it.

Muff: No way! So what did you say?

Thatch: Oh, I told him:
One, that’s not gonna happen.
Two, if you erect fencing that’s not on your property, it will be torn down.
Three, no way in hell am I going to pay for your fence.
Four, the kids know how to get over a fence anyway.
And five, your neighbors might like you more if you quit being a jerk.

Muff: And?

Thatch: He says, “Okay, you can just pay for part of it.” I said I’d spring for a beer if he shuts up about building a fence.

Muff: Huh.
I didn’t know you had kids.

Thatch: I don’t. That’s not even my house.
