In the earliest Alley Oop strips, a major feature of the strips was the dinosaur notebook which the author included periodically. Since V.T. Hamlin was first inspired to pen Alley Oop after unearthing a pretty big dinosaur graveyard in Texas, I would think that Hamlin would still be fairly interested in all of the latest discoveries regarding prehistoric life. It seems to me that, when Hamlin began penning the Alley Oop strips, Piltdown Man was considered to be “the real deal.” In the years following, of course, Piltdown was proved to be a hoax – and some people suspect that none other than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes, had a hand in putting the Piltdown Hoax over on the gullible public!
Still no Herb and Jamal! Has anyone figured out what is going on here?
Just think - they could have just handed the cousin $220 and been rid of him a lot earlier. If they are REALLY lucky - they will never see the cousin again. Which makes the $220 meal a real bargain!
I know what you mean! I figure that if there was ANYONE in Washington who actually knew HOW to save - they would have done it LONG ago - and we wouldn’t be in the mess we are in now! Claims that it is all the other bunch who don’t know how to save don’t cut any mustard with me either! NO politician in Washington should be taking my vote for granted either!
Hope they don’t decide to throw away the old Bible! At Walt’s age, Walt’s original Bible might actually be worth serious money to a collector one day!
