    Thanks, GretchensMom. I was wondering what had become of Rosalyn after all of these years.

    @ArthurAllen: I don’t know what Peanuts strip Arlo and Janis might be referencing. There was the Peanuts TV special where Charlie Brown got rocks in his trick-or-treat bag, and there was the Peanuts strip where Lucy kept asking for a second piece of candy at every house for her brother who was sitting in the pumpkin patch. Often when a cartoonist references Peanuts, it is a TV special, because more of their readers will have seen it than would have read a single strip. Of course, many Peanuts strips have been worked into TV specials.

    Rosalyn has really big hands compared to her skinny arms. Sort of like Mickey Mouse.

    @Agingstoner: While I would acknowledge that the “Good Old Days” probably weren’t all that good in many ways, I do enjoy reading some of the stories on this site, especially ones that are from “before my time.” Some of them are very entertaining / informative.

    The good thing about written text is that if you find a posting to be too long or it doesn’t interest you, you can skip over the rest.

    Hope you read this far…….

    @Joshua: Yes, that’s correct. When Rosalyn turned out to be Calvin’s swimming instructor, Calvin made her unhappy, so he was hoping she wouldn’t drown her sorrows.

    @somebodyshort: Maybe Calvin doesn’t have to avoid Rosalyn at other times. Maybe she avoids him.

    As a context for today’s strip, it is important to realize what happened to Calvin previously. Here is a strip from 3 years earlier:

    Today’s Calvin and Hobbes strip is from 1990. Bill Watterson may have been inspired by this Far Side strip by Gary Larson from 1985:

    Hi, verticallychallenged.

    (Hmmm……. That sounds derogatory………)

    Charles Schulz avoided showing adults’ faces in Peanuts, but he did show some adults in a very unusual early strip (without drawing in their faces):

    @Number Six: Are you sure that’s Calvin’s dad? He doesn’t seem to have aged much in 20 years, in spite of being Calvin’s dad. I’m guessing it is actually a picture of Bill Watterson, now living under an assumed name.
