    For once, Hobbes learned something from Calvin.-Just curious to know, what six year old makes his own lunch the night before?

    What’s the old line? “Life is uncertain; eat dessert first.”

    “Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow, for events may occur which will cause you to regret your hasty action.” OR, as Mark Twain put it, “Never do tomorrow what you can put off until the day after tomorrow.”

    Calvin’s delayed gratification has been delayed some more.Work always gets in the way. I’m posting infrequently these days, due to my work schedule.

    While my Dad was still in the Army in WWII, we lived in a one room apartment. Mother got sick and couldn’t get out of bed. My Dad could only come home every other day. He would prepare my baby brother’s bottles and food that could just be warmed up. He got me a stool and taught me to light the gas, and put the food in a pan or baby bottles in a pan of water and warm them . He showed me how low to keep the flame. Mother was watching me all the way. Before I tell you how old I was, remember that before the Unionization of the work place, coal mines and textile mills especially worked children as young as 4 years old.I was 5 then.When I was 14 Mother and Dad both worked. When I got in from school I cooked supper. This was in the days before quick cooking foods or convenience foods. We also didn’t have electricity, so no refrigeration. The Greeks and Romans used children in the gold and silver mines. The average age was around 10 years old. There were usually no survivors and their life span was measured in months. But, there were plenty of them so they were a consumable commodity.Most of the gold ever mined is still in use. Makes you look at your gold jewelry and wonder………..

    It’s always fun when two different cartoonists come up with matching strips. But today: Part 1 is Calvin and Hobbes. Part 2 is Pearls Before Swine. A perfect juxtaposition!

    Ha. Hobbes sneaking the “finger” full of Peanut butter. My Mom used to scream over the finger tracks in the PB jar. There was no way you could resist.
