About the Pruneville.com Comic Strips
Louie and Dot are a married couple in their mid-60s who have recently retired from their jobs in the big city and have moved to Pruneville, a quaint retirement community in East Texas, with their pet cockatiel, Jake.
Louie cracks incredibly corny jokes, is somewhat lazy and harebrained, and often embarrasses Dot and Jake in front of their friends and relatives with his less-than-intelligent comments, questions, and actions.
Dot is spry, witty, personable, and is the foundation of the family. Without her loving guidance and unlimited patience, Louie and Jake would be in big trouble.
Jake is self-centered, impossibly stubborn, and constantly sarcastic.
