Male, 65, lifelong aficianodo of comic strips, comic books, animated cartoons, etc.
I DO remember the special “It’s Arbor Day, Charlie Brown.”
Just in time for The Great Pumpkin!
I went to a local cider mill last Sunday. Got a half-gallon of cider. (No, didn’t let it get hard.) But I keep forgetting to eat more of the smoked cheddar I got.
Reapy is INSIDE the trailer and we have people looking over the trailer. He’s been up there for six Hallowe’ens now and I’ve never had any trouble.
I live in the Detroit area, and we really don’t have trick or treating. Instead, there are LOTS of organized community parties that go on where kids (and adults) can dress up and get treats. Myself, the last time I went in a kind of costume was 2013, when I dressed up as Walter White from “Breaking Bad.” And, yes, I was giving out blue crystal candy.
This past Thursday, I put Reapy (my name for him) in my trailer window that faces the street, I put his battery in so his head and especially eyes glow red. He’s there to welcome anyone who walks by during October.
Neighborhood kids love him.
I worked for Don and Maggie Thompson on Comics Buyer’s Guide four three-and-a-half years back in the Eighties. They owned the original art for this strip. “That stupid Thompson! He’s done it again!” was a catch phrase for them.
The creatures will never stand up to the Dowager Countess’ zingers.
Leaf them alone?
As I read these current strips, I’m playing “Autumn Leaves” over my computer.
Lucky for her (and us?) that her clothes grew with her.
