Mrs Olsen used to go at a slower pace?
Who knew Mrs Olsen had a dog?
I do know this is a cartoon strip, but the apparent size of the population where the characters live leads me to believe they would be awed by the size of Mayberry Rural Free Delivery.
Like I would waste money on overnight shipping. Two days with Prime would be good enough.
Score one for Mrs. Olsen!
thank you for the reference to a wonderful book. This comic puts the lit in literature. I live on the border of Wisconsin and the U.P. and I appreciate Frazz so much.
Technology quickly becomes a necessity, even when it doesn’t actually improve the quality of life. Human beings always choose convenience and the path of least resistance, even when it’s not actually a good idea.
Frazz is a nice guy. How many dedicated long distance runners would drop everything and interrupt a cherished ritual to engage in conversation an old bat who’s just let loose a “random”comment like that one?
Hmmm….. I just finished reading ‘I Sing the Body Electric!’ last night….
I hope Mrs. Olsen doesn’t spot Frazz running down the footpath toward her bench and think Something Wicked This Way Comes.
My all time favorite book since my teen years. Though downloading seems a contradiction, going to do it now!
Hipper-than-thou Frazz just got burned by old Mrs. Olsen! Classic!
I have described “Dandelion Wine” as the book that makes you homesick for a place you’ve never been.
NICE!! One of my all time favorite books by a favorite author.
“Dandelion Wine” is one of Bradbury’s greatest—loved it and have read it several times. Also enjoyed the sequel, “Farewell Summer”.
Recently got a copy of his “Fahrenheit 459”.
Interesting — I haven’t read anything by Bradbury that didn’t leave me totally depressed.
hahaha that’s a good one Jeff!
