    You’re such a bad influence, Gordon.

    You know this old if you can get games (plural), for a buck!

    Parents warnings can be for a good cause. But peer group pressure can over rule it.

    On my 16th birthday, I met a REALLY cute boy at school, who came into the office to ask if he could put up fliers for a new video game arcade (I worked in the office one period a day). He asked me if he could take me to the opening. When I asked my parents, my father (who usually left things like that to my mother) spoke up with a firm “NO”. The arcade was in a “really bad part of town” and (of course) he didn’t know the guy. Naturally, I was upset (yeah, I actually said, “I’m 16! Stop treating me like a child!”) but very soon after I had reason to be thankful, as the guy was M-A-J-O-R trouble, as was the place!

    Parents usually have good reasons for what they say. Sometimes they don’t make sense, but it’s better to not wait for trouble to happen for them to make sense.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    “Crazy Eddy’s” was based on “Fergy’s” in Lynn Lake — part confectionery, part pool hall; a place where boys of all ages liked to hang out. Fergy himself was a dishevelled, crotchety old guy whose motto (printed over the entrance) was “Buy or bye-bye.” He sold cigarettes to minors, bent the liquor laws, and bragged about being just honest enough to stay out of jail. Even though we didn’t like our boys to go in there, we knew where they were, and in a “frontier town,” Fergy’s was safer than some of the other haunts around town.

    And my paper today has John searching around at midnight for the schools hamster that got loose in the house. Why isn’t it the same strip as Gocomics?

    All except John and Elly at the top. Those grins are really freaky!

    In my day, if your mom didn’t want you to go in there, then you definitely would check it out.

    Too bad that Crazy Eddie went out of business. Used to love those TV commercials he had.
