    Has Bill Waterson come out of retirement, or are these old strips that I just don’t recognise???

    Calvin seems to have a very short memory.

    So many vile things can be found in a pile of leaves – dirt, spiders, snakes, dog poop – how could a kid resist?

    That wouldn’t be a fall olympics; it would be a somersault olympics!

    I used to like jumping in a freshly-raked pile of leaves when I was 6 years old too. Now leaf raking just seems like a never-ending chore all autumn long until it gets cold enough for snowflakes to fall instead. I soooooooo wish I could move somewhere where there’s nothing but a long stretch of sandy beach to live on instead!!!!!

    There is a fall Olympics. It’s called the election, and it happens every four years.

    Don’t let Mr. Wilson catch you…or Dennis either…unless you invited him.
