    Another great old time radio site is http://brandoclassicsotr.com. Huge selection with daily schedule that has new episodes every week such as Lum and Abner, Jack Benny, Amos ’n Andy, Terry and the Pirates, Dick Tracy, Father Knows Best, Fibber MeGee and Molly and countless others.

    Don’t do it, Skeezix! You will be waited on by that Jack Benny clerk. Not worth the hassle. Go to Corky’s dinner and a few minutes, then return with the same charger and she won’t know the difference.

    Another great strip. Just this morning at our church, a gentleman in his mid-70s made a comment about the jot-em-down store. Long live Lum and Abner!! Thanks for keeping them alive.

    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!
