    Sunday’s strip was truly spectacular – leave it to Gasoline Alley to be able to sum up the meaning of the season with one magnificent picture!

    Magnificent ~ You can always depend on Gasoline Alley to be able to sum up the meaning of the holiday in one picture!

    Thank you Guy.
    Guy and Jim Scancarelli (Gasoline Alley) are the VERY BEST!


    I would totally agree with that. It was kind of wonderful to see most of this year’s comic strips remembering Christmas – but Nancy and Gasoline Alley always shine brighter at this time of year.

    We had a Shetland Sheep Dog who would run out the front door when company came if we didn’t keep an eye on her. Once outside, we would call her to “come” and she would act like she couldn’t hear a word we said. But if we went inside, opened the refrigerator door and pulled out a piece of cheese and sliced it – before we were finished slicing, she would be back in the kitchen, begging for a hunk of that cheese! We tried saying “cheese” when she ran out the door – but she didn’t pay any attention to what we were saying then either. We had to actually take the cheese out of the refrigerator and begin slicing it before she would turn up in the kitchen, begging for a little cheese snack! She was wild about cheese!

    Another masterpiece! I am thankful that Nancy has been consistently wonderful under the Gilchrist guidance for so many years. Nancy has become a true gem of total perfection. It is a real joy to see Nancy, her friends and family every day. May we wish many happy returns to the thankfulness of this day. And, since we still have a few days to go before Thanksgiving Day itself arrives – possibly there will still be room for Sam and Teddy to add their Thanks to the growing list.

    (10+2+4+8) / 4 = 6 (The mean number)


    2 + 4 + 6 + 8 + 10 = 30 divided by 5 ALSO = 6 – so – no matter how you slice it – 6 is STILL the “mean” or average number!

    So, who’s the next brilliant criminal or oddball inventor to be taken?
    One truly brilliant oddball inventor/Car Talk radio show host (deceased about 3 weeks ago [Alzheimer’s]), Tom Magliozzi. Now, he would derail the evil empire and make us laugh while he did it.


    The law firm which the Brothers mention at the end of their program every week is Dewey,, Cheatham and Howe – a law firm which Oopsters discussed a while back when lawyer Dewey wandered through Moo.

    @Lois. I’m from NYC, and can remember (from the 1940s) horse-drawn carts for delivering ice to people (such as us) who had ice-boxes. Also, in the late 1940s (in NYC) there were men selling vegetables from horse-drawn carts.


    As late as the 50s, even in big cities like Denver, a great many people had chicken coops or a chicken pen in their backyards. With Thanksgiving coming up, we will probably see some old-time comic strips which show a family getting a LIVE turkey for Thanksgiving, keeping it penned up in the backyard – then falling in love with it and not being able to turn it into Thanksgiving dinner! As late as the 40s and 50s, even in big cities like Denver, we could see live turkeys in backyards when we went to Denver to do stuff like Christmas shopping.

    I would think even earlier, Lois. For sure, there were no horse drawn conveyances in our part of southeastern Ohio by the early 50s, which is about as far back as I can remember. If you lived out west though, I’m sure it was a little different.


    Actually, there are still a number of very active Amish communities in Ohio, most of whom still depend on horses for their transportation. My favorite catalog for non-electric products is Lehman’s, which is headquartered in DALTON, OH. You may not notice them – but horses and buggies are still around – even in 2014!

    RE – Jim Douglas said, about 17 hours ago


    My brother drove a horse drawn enclosed bread wagon. The horse would know where to stop on his route without any help from my brother. There were also horse drawn ice wagons, milk etc.


    I went to summer camp about 1954. The camp was an old CCC camp which had been converted for kids to learn stuff like canoeing and other “woods craft” type skills. I made friends with a girl who lived in Broomfield, which is now considered to be a suburb of Denver. However, at that time, there were actually still many “family farms,” mostly small operations, in the Broomfield area. My friend’s family had a small farm with some chickens, goats, ducks, geese and a couple of milk cows. Even though they had a couple of milk cows, they still had milk regularly delivered by a dairy. The milk man came in a horse drawn wagon. In the mornings, he would go right into the kitchen (in those days, even near a big city like Denver, most people didn’t feel that they needed to keep their doors locked.) The milkman would bring the fresh milk in and put it in the refrigerator in the kitchen, then pick up the used glass milk bottles and take them along with him. His horse knew all the stops, and he usually didn’t even need to use the reins for the horse. Also, when we first moved from our farm to a house in town (small eastern Colorado town), most people still used ice boxes. The R.E.A. was just getting off the ground in our area, and most houses still needed to be wired for electricity before the homeowners could take advantage of having electricity available. So, for the most part, everyone had an ice box and bought ice from the ice man. The ice man brought his ice in a horse-drawn cart and delivered to us, both when we lived out in the country and after we moved to a house in town. Sometimes, when he brought the ice, his daughter would go with him. My sister and I just loved her (she was older than we were) – so, whenever our folks needed a babysitter, they would ask her to babysit whenever her Dad delivered the ice to our house. In those days, we not only did not have a telephone – we didn’t even know anyone who had a telephone. After we moved to town, someone from the local telephone company stopped by the house to ask if we wanted a telephone and my Dad laughed at him and said he didn’t see the point of paying someone to have something in his house which no one could use, because we didn’t know anyone who had a telephone and, therefore, wouldn’t have anyone to call! A few years later, my grandparents got a telephone, so all of their kids eventually got a telephone as well. We also had a man who lived in our town who had a team of horses and a wagon. He would pick merchandise up at the train station when it was shipped from some place like Denver – and then he would deliver it to whomever was supposed to receive the merchandise. People laugh at the old Western movies, which show people on horseback, riding up and down the street – at the same time that there are also automobiles on the street. But that was actually the way it was in a great many small, rural, Western towns.
