Born in VT, raised in Adirondacks, world traveler thanks to US Army + USAF, getting older and more philosophical, reading and writing more obituaries than I'm comfortable with, but I'm gettin' there...

    When aliens land, they always say; “Take us to your leader!” NOW do you all “get it?”

    “Yes, Mrs. Keene… we can see Teena in two weeks from Tuesday at 4:15..Will that be OK?” (Thus the reason for the upsurge in Walk-In Clinics, starring NP’s and PA’s. )

    Back when I would get ‘free satellite TV,’ I taped everything in sight. I’m paying for that sin now, finding that converting from VCR to DVD requires TIME and plenty of it ! I’ve got the machinery for the deed, but not the inclination… (argh!)

    Think about what it would entail to ‘sync’ the comics. Dates and days only synchronize every god-knows when and then there’s the math-jump of leap years to factor in, so just read, laff and click onward.

    In my memory, (failing) most paneled “comic balloons” containing a statement was always punctuated with an exclamation point, as in panel 3; “LOOK OUT! The enemy has moved behind us!” Panel 4; “not to worry, mate.. Capt. Murray has them already in his sights !” and so on…. Just a scene remembered (or not) from the days of Steve Canyon, Terry and the Pirates and even Buzz Sawyer, not to forget my cousin’s same age guy, Sgt. “Skeezix” Wallet. Now cousin ‘Mush’ has gone, but Skeezix lives on…ooops, my 3 minutes are up and I don’t have any more change.. ICUL.

    Corey had moved on to other strips ‘way back when’ and is involved in newer projects..One of which was the now-defunct strip about “Barkeater Lake” and life in the Upper Adirondacks. Google the name.. It’s an eye-opener.

    Being an amateur genealogist, I dug around and found the published passing of “VIsta Bill” at this website, just to bring our latecomers up to date: https://obittree.com/obituary/us/maryland/oxon-hill/george-p-kalas-funeral-home—-oxon-hill/william-raley/3378186/ Hope this didn’t hurt the family’s privacy in any way. Bill was a year older than me and the way things are going, I make dam sure that there’s a real car in the driveway and there’s nobody toting a scythe knocking at my door !!

    To my dying day, I’ll never forget the morning that my lil’ sister found that she had boarded the ship with the “Japanese flag” rampant, Dad and I hiding out in the milk-house, while she screamed (over and over) at Ma that she didn’t WANT to ‘become a woman’.. jeez… the ‘stuff’ that comes to the Remember Gland at this age.

    When they designed my house, someone forgot the ‘exhaust-fan’ for the 2nd bath, and I gotta tell ya folks, ‘visitors’ should use the Little House in the back yard ! An upgrade would cost HUGE and a can of Lysol is far cheaper..

    But nobody west of Brooklyn would even comprehend the meaning….sad. That, and ‘bafangool’ if yelled loud enough.
