    Glad to see Calvin didn’t suffocate and is still alive.

    I hope Bill wasn’t foreseeing 11 Sept. 2001 then.

    A little different to have a strip without Hobbes in it…

    You can tell this cartoon came out 30 years ago. If a 6-year-old kid had been left alone in a car in a parking lot in 2020, Mom would’ve been greeted by cops and CPS workers when she got back from the store.

    The concerned citizen has become more aware of kids and pets in parking lot cars. Unfortunately there is that element that can not discern what is safe and what needs intervention.

    My experience was to be met by a store employee when I returned as she was walking away from my car. She told me that a woman had reported my us because our dog was in the car. They told her that they did not believe security or the police were needed.

    It was 70 deg, all windows were 4” down, and the roof was retracted two feet. Plus we were getting shade on the back half of the car because we had a space against the building. Sometimes saner heads do prevail.

    I love the attention to weird, small details – the stewardess- frilly slip.

    LOL! With a couple of small toys and a huge imagination Calvin is having a blast! Reminds me when I could do the same thing!

    Flying: hours and hours of boredom punctuated with moments of sheer terror.

    It would always upset my passengers when I’d stand the plane up on a wingtip and yell, “Tora, tora, tora” just before entering a vertical dive. I miss standing on the rudder pedals, watching the altimeter unwind like a cooling fan.

    And now you know why I don’t fly for the airlines. I don’t like to fly straight and level – they prefer I would not do otherwise.

    “Gun the engines.”

    I wonder if that expression appears anywhere in official pilot training manuals?

    Planes don’t take off and land in opposite directions.

    Looks like Calvin has a DC-10 and a 727… but that 727 looks pretty huge vs. my memories of riding in them long, long ago… ;-)

    Another example of the importance of keeping ADHD minds engaged.

    Calvin must have just bought Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 & is running it on his laptop.

    Love today’s example of a child’s imagination. Reminded me of a time my first son, at age 4, recounted his fight with a bear on the levee behind our house. Miss that little guy.

    I was in the one coming in for a landing in Cleveland. We had to do a quick aborted landing. The pilot came on to explain what had happened and she was NOT happy.

    Am I missing something here? What’s this about not being allowed to leave kids in the car?

    Mr Watterson loves to draw, that’s obvious, and it’s a treat when he really lets himself go on the Sunday comix, all the detail and complex perspective and so on and on.

    Come on now folks. Do you think some idiot is going to read a comic and then deduce it’s okay to leave your toddlers alone in a car while they toss back a couple cocktails?

    Calvin may be small, but he has a unique universe inside his mind.

    Do they have booster seats in airplane cockpits?

    If the other aircraft is cleared to land on the same runway he’s taking off from, it would be behind him, not coming towards him. Not a problem.

    Oh, how I loved to fly in 727’s! And for the same reasons that a lot of people hated them: you’d feel every little thing, bump and motion; you really knew you were flying and not riding on some bus, and they were so maneuverable! They were the sports cars of long distance travel. :-D
