Funny, I never noticed the omission…. the brain knew what was meant. However, in the last panel, are we talking about winning a sandwich? Or a work from Peter Paul Rubens…Flemish artist?
When was the last time we saw an inspirational ad campaign like this old Coca Cola commercial? I loved that commercial.
Now that I live in Florida, I have my own pool. My Dad, who was a germaphobe, had avoided public pools his entire life. But he went into MY pool…(smiling).
If he is waking up at noon, why is the sun (in the first panel), still so low in the sky? Looks more like 9-10 o’clock. That still is very late, though.
Who is the character behind Stewie (far left) and the one next to Mr. Magoo in the green vest?
We always got a summer reading list but there was no testing or follow up in the fall term about it. So if you read the books, fine. If you didn’t, no one knew (or cared). I loved to read and read all summer….just usually NOT the stuff on the reading list!
As a child, getting the Sears gift catalogue (I think it was called The Wish Book?) with all the toys in it….WOW! We lived for that book!
We love Amazon. I was never big on on-line shopping, but now? Between Costco and Amazon, we do 99.99% of our shopping this way. Especially when brick and mortar are offering less and less. I can’t run around all day searching for exactly the type of decorative storage baskets I want, for example.
We also used to get Montgomery Ward’s catalogue.
