    Thanks, Donnie, for the stories behind the stories.

    Prayers for you and your mom. Mine turned 100 a couple weeks ago. Still at home and able to get up and down from her chair. Excellent mind (better than mine). She keeps me busy seeing about her but worth all the effort. God Bless!

    Have thoroughly enjoyed this story, perhaps because I have always like the Annie character (the comic, not necessarily the movie). She wasn’t in our local paper (neither was DT) so I never followed her adventures from year to year. Still hope to see what happened to the Silos and the rest of the town folks. And what will happen to the island itself. Be fun to think it could continue as a town set in the 1940s settings. My mother just turn 100 and said she wished she was living back in that time period. They didn’t have a lot of money but people got by and had time for each other. Thanks Team Tracy for taking us back in time. And count me as one that enjoys the crossovers, especially with characters from strips no longer around. Uncle Walt of Gasoline Alley goes to visit the old cartoon home from time to time. Although I don’t want him to remain there, it is fun to see him visit with his (and our) old friends from the past. Again, thanks, Mike and Joe, for a fun trip.

    Thanks for the history, Donnie. You are doing an exactly job in keeping Lum and Abner’s memory alive.

    As I commented a few days ago, why did Fritz Ann and Sam allow Professor Kenyon to continue with his project?
    Of course, if they hadn’t we wouldn’t have a great ending to this story. Hopefully the explosion is only contained to the Kenyon and Silo farms.

    Rechecking this, I see that he is holding his hand against a window; thus, what we see is NOT his finger nails but the pressing of his 5 fingers against the window. Oh, well, case ALMOST solved!

    Case of the Missing Finger Nails: Check out the final panel of Annie on 6-13-2010, the final Annie strip. Daddy Warbuck is holding up his right hand and we see his finger nails; however, they are appearing on the wrong side of his hand. Case solved! Couldn’t figure out how to post the picture; perhaps someone can.

    I also have a bad feeling about Kenyon’s formula. Why are they allowing him to finish it there? Why not take it back to a more safe location to test it? Will there be a big explosion at the end? And send someone back in time?

    Annie doesn’t say she remembered Axel from 1944. Axel tells her of a time travel that ended them in 1944. Annie then sees Axel is alive again from the last time she saw him (no date given) and she explores the town and sees it looks like it would have in 1944 or thereabouts. In other words, she knew Axel from the past and now he is trying to convince her that they all have traveled back in time to 1944. Doesn’t mean she was around in 1944 (real life, yes, comic life, no).

    No action in today’s strip but I loved it! I think that was (and is) what so good about Annie .. she makes you feel good and ready to face another day! Would love to see her adventures start up again by a good artist and writer like we have in Dick Tracy. And keep her young and innocent and the center of the storyline like Gray did, not a secondary character like she seems to become in later years by other writers.
