So you didn't keet detailed daily diary entries about your thoughts concerning each strip?

You're asking me to give the thought process behind something I wrote 40 years ago! I'm pretty sure this was one of the early strips and, you have to remember, the characters were still being developed at that time. Later, the sergeant became pretty much a straight man to counter the daftness around him.
That's my story, anyway.

Well, let me tell you that...um...okay, you've got a point.

Why not? Dundee Utd managed it.

Sometimes, kind English tourists donate them.

That's good. I guess Dundee Utd need them for goal posts.

Roger, I don't know if you recall a Beau Peep strip in which Beau and Dennis are walking through the desert and Dennis is hiding behind a twig, camouflaged as a tree. "Come on! If I hadn't sneezed, would you have known I was here!"

At the end of the strip, Beau tells Dennis to ditch the twig before the sergeant sees him, but Dennis refuses.

When they arrive back at the fort, Sergeant Bidet says, "Good to see you, Beau. What happened to Dennis? Was he captured?" And Dennis is grinning.

Is this the only time you decided to have the Sergeant (or another character) act out of character to get a laugh?

Actually, Diane, there were heaters on the wall. If you sat directly under them, your head got burned and, if you moved three feet away, you got no warmth at all. I suppose it's the thought that counts!

Scotland has coats, doesn't it?

Glad you've had your first jab---as an old fella, I get my second on Sunday.
