…you aren’t full with smooches at the end of the day you should reexamine your life!
YEY I’M ONE OF THE FIRST COMMENTERS! : )

Apparently, I need to re examine my life! : )

The badges of being a kid…remnants of fall leaves clinging to your hair, earth and mud under your fingernails, tiny scratches and pricks from branches and close encounters with the neighbors hedges, a mosquito bite red and puffed from scratching and scraped kneecaps smudged in grass and dirt.
Kids in big cities hardly ever even SEE grass, it seems to me.
i have to re-examine my life no smooches or wht so ever..
i say if you dont have odd stains on your shirt, u otta fix your life
@ King Shark
You’re right, not much grass in the big cities. City kids end up with more cuts, scabs, and bruises on their knees. All of which are badges of honor.
alway of kids …..I believe…
I haven’t had green knees for a long time.
your dropping out of the mail account
The Green Badge of Courage.
On the other hand, if your knees are green and you haven’t been out in the grass, you may need medical attention!
@ Gabriel 7 — are you a writer? A poet? Do you have anything published? You have a nice way with a pen.
@cookies333,Go kneel on the lawn and pray! You’ll grow in grace, and grass! :o)
@Hobbes,Snoopy is winnowing the grass, but he’s going against the grain! The way Snoopy tosses grass is for the birds!
Five days ago, Calvin wanted another kind of ‘green’ from collecting Captain Steroid comic books!
words to live by Calvin!
Ah, the good ol’ days. Yes, I remember them well.
Yes! I always enjoy reading your comments, Dogsniff. You seem like a very fun person. :)
Hobbes looks tall and proud in the last panel.
As Mum would say ‘Bathtime, Calvin!’
Mornin’ all! Got tired of just reading your comments and decided to join up. I spent my girlhood summers in Ithaca, NY climbing trees, fishing, rockhounding, roller-skating and falling down a lot on our slate and cement sidewalks (with those diabolical flat metal skates that clipped onto your shoes and always fell off – only one thin leather strap on the back to go up and around your ankle, Snoopster! – and you tightened the clips with a skate key). My brother and I had pocket knives from about age 10 and onward – mine was a green-handled Girl Scout knife and I STILL HAVE IT at age 57 1/2!!! I still have a knife in my hip pocket most of the time, too … Speaking of grass stains: I’ve noticed that I don’t get them any more, even though I work on my knees in flowerbeds and such. Guess I’ve learned how to move without rubbing my jeans on the grass!
Your up at 4:00 AM? Wow that’s late! The latest I’ve ever stayed up is ’till 2:00AM! : )
That kind of ruins the point of a park though. : )
I think you are. : )
How about brown or red from crawling thru the gravel?
No green knees for me today . . . it’s just too darn hot to go out and pull all those pesky weeds right now!
Wise words, Calvin. Some very wise words.
And if you have green knees and bright yellow pants you might have been playing some serious golf, especially from checking the lie on those money putts….
My knees are greenish…was crawling around playing with 2-yr old granddaughter…first they were red, then blue, then black, now green…tomorrow yellow….bruises. Too old of a body to do this, too young of a heart not to.
I love how Hobbes brushes his fur!
Wow, do you naturally wake up early? Or do wake up early to be the first commenter on the website? Where I live the strip changes about 11:00 PM.
You’re welcome : )
it’s 9:30pm here. just read the strip. looked down, everything is green. of course i just finished cutting two yards of grass……
It’s called play! Not work!
I like it.
