    Today’s Calvin and Hobbes is one of my favorites, because Hobbes says, “Let’s make the most of the time we have left.” Great wisdom from Bill Watterson that one can apply when approaching the end of summer, approaching the end of a vacation, or approaching the end of life.

    Speaking of approaching the end, we are in the final year of Calvin and Hobbes, from 1995, so today’s strip represents the last time that Calvin had to deal with going back to school. Here is the first time, from 1986:

    Here are two wonderful Red and Rover strips by Brian Basset. The first one seems like it was inspired by today’s Calvin and Hobbes.

    Today’s Calvin and Hobbes is from 1995. Here is a Nokia 232 cell phone from 1994:

    I’m posting later and less frequently these days, due to changes in my work schedule and “work/life balance” during the summer.

    Today, Bill Watterson provides us with a bit of light humor.

    Calvin is conducting an undercover operation; but, in a flash, Hobbes has blown his covers.

    Today we have an example of Bill Watterson’s corny humor. Another great strip with Calvin and cobs.

    I hope everyone has been having a great summer — at least, up until you read this posting…..

    When one is dealing with an antagonistic person who turns face-to-face communication into a contest for dominance, sometimes the written word works much better. It slows down the interchange and gives each person time to think about their words before “speaking” them.

    When dealing with a committee or a team, a careful balance between the number of face-to-face meetings and the number of emails can be the most efficient approach.

    Technology can be a valuable tool if we are able to use it but still maintain balance in our lives.

    For two days, Calvin has had water balloon tactics on the brain. Now he has water on the brain.

    Looks like Bill Watterson is going for belly laughs today.

    Today’s strip is a tough one for coming up with other strips on a similar theme. Here are some attempts.

    @LX013: And we imagine that the other posters on this site are real, even though we have never seen them move.
