    It’s a three-part classics update now available for the 16th at the link provided above.

    Hipshot’s horse Tombstone ran off during the night, so our other main character need to borrow another mount from the livery stable to go track him down. I wonder what the rent is on those nags, as Hip goes through the roof.

    Brenda and Basil, together again for the first time in around 18 months. Can they just order a piña colada and plan their escape?

    The countdown for moving Aunty’s house is on a HOLD at T-minus 30 seconds, as a part has become separated from the mission, and needs found before Rufus lets ’er rip.

    3 – I knew that coin would turn back up one day!!!

    This was the premise of the first “topper” strip for “Gasoline Alley”, which concerned a plugged nickel which was passed from person to person every week. Some poor sap would get stuck with the coin, then the next week THEY were foisting it off on someone else.

    It’s a late afternoon emergency update for the 15th, two parts:

    Slim keeps showing up late, so Sarge figures he might make his point, by making Slim miss a day’s pay after arranging for Stubbs to take a shift. It’s not really big shoes to fill, but the jacket’s gonna need taking in.

    Then it’s Little Brother Hugo, with Very Special Guest Star Hack! Even in the one “Hugo” that Wilmer Bobble appeared, it was only as a picture on the wall to help establish the new character in 1944. Plus I think this, after 29 years is the first time Hugo ever spoke, at least beyond an exclamation like “Ouch!”.

    Then Brenda tracks Lazy to a local restaurant, and camps out at a table hoping they might return. Jackpot!

    (And I picked Pat Pending based on the appearance of the character, it just hit me as similar.)

    Technically, if not directly? Coinage and currency are under the purview of the Treasury Department, part of the Executive Branch.. with its own Cabinet member.

    So while the President is ultimately in charge of that part of the government, it’s (for example) the Secretary of the Treasury’s signature that goes on bills of various dollar denominations in any given administration.

    The 12-14-1930 post was a two-parter, the first twit was explanation only, while the second 12-14-1930 post had the full-page Sunday comic attached.
