    He must be the oldest person in the U.S. or close to it.

    He is. He was around 20 or older when he found Skeezix on his doorstep in 1921.

    There was a guy at the Red Sox Yankees game last night, Yankees fan Bernando LaPallo, who is 111 years old. Walt has him beat by a bit.

    As Molly the mouse says “To cheese” before she buries her head into a wheel of cheese.

    I wish these old wonderful strips would be shown from the beginning.

    What makes Walt great is he doesn’t whine but takes life day by day.. A wine and cheese fondue for brunch would be
    a great idea.

    He had to have been older. He was a college graduate, served in WWI, and had already worked as a salesman. His wife had already married and divorced by the time he met her in, what, 1923 or so.

    UncaScrooge:
    No, he was no sort of college graduate, might have been a WWI sort (not to my memory) and was usually the central figure in the garage area known as “Gasoline Alley” where all the jokes and stunts were about autos and the families surrounding the Alley.of suburban haunts
    It never got into "AmandaLynns’ and Redneck Humor until Jim took over the strip and his love of Bluegrass music came through. Not begrudging the fact, for I know a few instruments myself, but what, in the old days, started as a flatland citys’ suburban comic strip, graduated into the outskirts of Marion, Virginia.

    I concur with the flatland cities origin. but I always thought it felt more like a city neighborhood than a suburb. In the 1920’s the suburbs were more of an exception than the norm. I started following GA in the 50’s.
