    Using milk instead of water might blend those flavors a bit better. Probably needs some butter, too. It’d need some experimentation, because when in the heating process to add the peanut butter would affect the flavor. Her ingredients are basically for frosted oatmeal peanut butter cookies. Maybe she’s sick because she just ate what amounts to a full bowl of raw cookie dough.

    I love this strip – the punch line panel caught me completely by surprise, and I laughed. Cat lovers will totally get this. Nothing relaxes into a state of contentment like a cat. I get into my best Zen meditative states by watching how my cat “Zen masters” do it and then doing it with them..

    I started reading this strip somewhere in the middle of its run, when all the family relationships were already established, including the teen nephew living with Joan and Wally. It’s interesting to go back like this and learn how they all met and wound up as we know them in the present.

    In real life, that fish would be a goner. I found out the hard way when I had an aquarium that they are extremely sensitive to water quality and temperature. I had to become an amateur chemist to keep the fish alive for months and years instead of hours or days. I know, it’s just a comic, but it’s surprising how many people think fish can survive in any water, and they bring fish home and kill them by dropping them into poison.

    My car died, making me miss work, and when I came in to call for a tow to a mechanic, there was water leaking through my living room ceiling! Friday the 13th, indeed!

    Yep, this one made me snort my coffee, too. :)

    I hear the “Ahh!” as one of those famous horror movie soprano screeches.

    I do this same thing with “Fox Trot” and “Fox Trot Classics”. Now I have both “Stone Soup” and “Stone Soup Classics” bookmarked in my favorites folder. The Sunday title will only update once a week, and the “Classics” title will rerun the dailies from the beginning.

    That was a very satisfying and memorable last daily strip. It reminds me of Calvin’s and Hobbes’ last winter sled trip together. I’m looking forward to reading Stone Soup from the beginning, and continuing to follow the Sunday strips.

    I loved to read in high school and college, but I always hated the stuff assigned in English class. I think it was because the classic novels, like “The Great Gatsby” and “Catcher in the Rye”, were filled with adult themes and lifestyles that I couldn’t relate to. The first classic novel I actually enjoyed and appreciated was “The Grapes of Wrath”, and that was in college English. I was old enough to appreciate it by that time.
    Shakespeare was always a chore, starting in ninth grade, because you practically had to look up every word in a translation dictionary to understand it. I did come to appreciate the archetypal cultural themes and stories in Shakespeare as I got older, but I didn’t much like reading the plays at the time. It was too much work, when I’d rather be reading a Star Trek book or a David Eddings fantasy epic.
