What Do I Have of REAL Value?

This is the first mention in the strip that Pete has a lot of money. Now, I’m wondering if it’s true and he just works as a fry cook for something to do, or does he think what he has makes him wealthy? Which would kind of make him more sane than we’ve previously thought.


“Cottage & CO”, starring Burt Cottage, was the strip I drew years ago, before “Tuttle’s”. Seeing these characters again is like running into a dear old friend. I drew them today (my birthday, by coincidence) because this punch line just didn’t work with any of the characters in “Tuttle’s”.
