A couple of people sent me this for the Geezer file. I have to disagree because the reruns have never left us. Otherwise Lucretia wouldn’t be old enough to know what this was. Neither would I. Neither, I assume, would Barney, or the two people who sent this to me.
I also can’t go along with “violent,” because Ralph is all bluster and nobody takes any of it seriously.

Okay, so Janis won and her decorations are going to be used this year — because for all I know it’s normal for couples who’d been married to one another for all their adult lives to each have their own decorations — but then is what we’re looking at in the final panel (and Arlo is equally happy with) actually the tree with Janis’s decorations?
