Make yourself at home
...and their third sister, Rockie.
Sometimes I like to hide little in-jokes within the drawings. In yesterday's strip, you could see the apartment number, 121, a reference to my old BYU strip. In this one,Rockie picks up a magazine in the last panel, an old copy of the Ensign. Just to compound the reference, there's a (really rough) drawing of a covered wagon on the cover. Of course, others do the same thing. Brian Crane (who is also LDS), the creator of the comic strip Pickles, often has Opal reading the Church magazines from time to time.
