    A easy chair that electrically tilts forward slightly to enable older people to get up and out of the chair is a joy to have.
    A stress ball to sqeeze and a 1 or 2 lb barbell to lift and
    stretch the arms is useful also.
    Thanks for continuing with more Walt in 2014

    Looks like reports of Walt Wallet’s demise were greatly exaggerated …

    I am no spring chicken as well, but Walt at 118 is easily old enough to be my father..
    Walt, I’ll tell you the same as I tell myself ; IF you want to live…..WORK….
    Sitting in that chair is the worst thing to do !
    I do the same….and as Walt is 118, he must be doing everything right…..
    After the morning coffee, I’ll be outdoors …shoveling….

    Well, Father Time only asked Walt yesterday if he was ready to go. I guess he’s not ready yet. Only time will tell when he will be ready.

    Good news. I wish Jim won’t scare us like that. It was on my mind all night.

    Why sugar-coat it? They were outright LIES! ;^)

    Well, it’s a heck of a corner that Frank King painted Jim Scancarelli into. By any measure Walt is, what, 115 years old now? But also, he’s not really doing the sort of long-term continuities that King and Dick Moores did, so maybe he’s just not going to do the real-time aging (they’re already fudging on some points, like Joel was previously established as older than Walt and a World War I vet. I think the best solution would be to have Walt move into the Old Comic Character’s Home…hopefully Phyllis will be there waiting.

    The older you get, the harder it is to get up to speed health wise. He needs to eat much less than he use to. Walk more.

    @Still Da Man!

    I choked seeing the picture you painted and yes, when Walt goes it’s pretty well over since they don’t seem to have a worthy elder to sit on the throne. Skeezix doesn’t carry the same ‘weight’ as Walt.

    I hope they just do stories about others and NEVER have Walt die, just let him be forgotten by the next generation. They could do like they did Ada and Nina’s parents, the Clocks.
