    Good Morning, everyone!

    Well, as I stated yesterday, this whole “Year without a Summer” thing sounds intriguing.

    We’ll see tomorrow.

    I’m pretty sure Dr. Wonmug is a descendant of Foozy’s.

    Ok, I got my migrations mixed up, a couple of days I stated the Irish Potato Famine, and migration was caused the 1816 lack of summer, oops, Wrong migration.
    It was the American Western Migration that was started by Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death.
    I need to check my brain files.

    A great summer morning to the Benders and readers of Alley Oop. It’s Monday and a great day to ponders the effects
    of the year without a summer (1816). Consider Thomas
    Jefferson, the second president of the United States
    (1801-1809) At the end of his presidency, he retired to his
    beloved Monticello in Virginia to live out the rest of his days.
    Unfortunately, because of lavish spending, he was beset
    by financial woes for the rest of his life (Died 1826). 1816
    didn’t help. Mr Jefferson’s cash crops of wheat and
    tobacco failed that year because of the lack of sunlight sending him further into debt. The food crops to feed his
    plantation of slaves failed also.

    The Little Prince cleaned his volcanos daily,… ours are too big to clean and cause us no end of trouble

    The effect wasn’t just the USA and western Yerp. It was worldwide.

    Reminds me of the old saw about the lecturer who predicted that the world would end in about 6 billion years. An tremulous voice queried from that back, “HOW many years?” "6 billion years., he repeated. “Oh, thank God! I thought you said MILLION!”

    Dr. Wonmug could also be an antecedent of the Wizer. Maybe, even his father.

    For those who think that Jack Bender’s art is getting better at 82 need to check the guy in the first two panels. Really, really bad. What is wrong with his arm and his head?
