    So Calvin, have you actually figured out how much a Dad makes for being a Dad? Didn’t think so.

    Doesn’t matter what the polls say, the Russians will rig the election anyway

    “Tell you what, Calvin. When you’re 75, if I’m still around, I’ll buy you one (a new VCR), how’s that?” “Oh, wonderful, I feel better already! And, oh, great news: your standing in the polls have just improved an entire one-millionth of a percent! Thanks a lot."

    Today in 2016, Calvin would need a blue-ray to satisfy him. Dad’s not too worried about Calvin’s polls. He knows he has to take care of him until he’s ready to go out on his own. Calvin may be over 50 before he leaves the house. Let’s hope for Dad sake, it will be earlier.

    My VCR still works great. Hooked up to a CRT television. Saw a show the other night where evidence was on a VCR tape. The detective turned around and said, “Great! now all we have to do is find somebody with a VCR!”

    I’ve decided that in order to “Have Something” each day, since I have The Complete Calvin and Hobbes I will post a quote from what I think we’ll be tomorrow’s strip, and then we’ll see if I’m right!

    You know you are old when you clearly remember owning a VCR.

    I have several including quite a bit of unrecorded 3M tapes. They were all working when disconnected!


    Send me your address, Calvin, and I’ll ship you one…
