    Hobbes, don’t forget about next door neighbor’s flower bed.

    Technically it’s a cipher, not a code, and this one would be pretty easy to crack, unless they ran all the numbers together into one big mass. Or mess.

    By how, Hobbes could’ve pounced on Susie.

    Calvin may have a promising future ahead of him as cryptographer In the Army as does Hobbes as a topographer. But he has to get out of the first grade for a starter. (Fat chance.)

    If I crack the code, do I get bitcoins or something?

    The old Oceana Double Loop code. I haven’t seen this in years.

    A cipher worthy of the “Enigma” machine .

    Yesterday, Hobbes was mapping the United States. While Calvin was making his extremely complicated code, Hobbes finished his map of the United States and has almost finished a very detailed map of the immediate area.

    “Now we just commit this to memory.” from the kid that hates rote schoolwork.

    Bill Watterson has stated that GROSS is based on a two-boy club which he and an unnamed kid next door belonged to. Hobbes is partly based on the other boy in the club and also partly based on Bill’s brother Tom Watterson who was the club’s regular victim when they couldn’t find any girls.

    If Calvin can remember exactly what he assigned half of the letters I’ll take back everything I’ve ever said about his intelligence!

    In the business world, this is known as “analysis paralysis:” planning way beyond what you can reasonably see.

    It’s kind of like asking a football coach what play he intends to use 5 downs from now. Which reminds me of that dumb interview question, “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” To which I am always tempted to answer, “Where will the department be in 5 years?”

    A pretty good example of German battle planning.

    Calvin thinks too complicated, if he put that much work on school work.

    I did all these things as a boy, in addition to “teaching” the latest bits of acquired scientific knowledge to my three younger brothers. We probably had the only teddy bears on the block that sheltered in nuclear bomb-resistant pillow-bunkers against attacks by plastic soldiers.

    Back in 4th grade, a friend and I wrote our own code book. It was a 3″×5″ spiral notebook. We both had the same codes and would send notes back and forth— coded of course. Our science teacher was pretty sharp and decoded one of our notes as it was intercepted. Nothing nefarious or anything like that. We were 4th graders in the 1960s!

    Memory might have faded but wasn’t this the plan for Sadaam Hussein’s defense? Perhaps I am confusing it with Dubya Bush’s Mission Accomplished of the Occupation.

    A few years ago we adopted a 12 year old Schnauzer who had lived her entire life with a very elderly woman who lived in a home that housed individuals With medical issues. It was quite a change of environment for Penny. She absolutely wanted no part of walking on the grass.

    I think they are putting way too thought into this. Just blast her with the dang water balloon and call it a day already…
