When you have been married for decades and have spent a lifetime together, you learn a thing or two about each other, to say the least. The greatest feeling of growing old together is that you two understand each other like nobody else. Even your kids don't get your unique sense of humor as a couple. Whether you're cribbing to each other or going through the same troubles, the feeling of camaraderie is always present.
Artist Brian Crane has been adding a dose of relationship humor through Pickles, a comic strip featuring a retired couple, Earl and Opal Pickles, for years now. Every morning, when you opened the newspaper, this happily retired couple would be there to greet you and pull you into their world.
Crane had modeled the cartoon after his wife Diana Long's parents - Bud and Ardella Long, of Pocatello, Idaho, according to BYU Magazine. Now, they have become household names and bring a smile to thousands of people.
