A great idea. Maybe we could try it. (10-4-2009)

I had forgotten how much I loved the Sunday comics.

My dad worked out of town a lot when I was young, but he was always home on the weekend, where I must have driven him crazy tagging along behind him, handing him tools while he worked on the car, or getting in the way when he mowed or worked in the field.

But my favorite time was Sunday morning. He always fixed scrambled eggs, which were my favorite (it was the only time he cooked back then). And after breakfast, I climbed into his lap and we read the comics together.

Funny how I don't remember a single one of those comics, but I sure remember how wonderful it was to have my dad home.

What a neat memory, Jank. Thanks for sharing that.

I like Dilbert. Gives hope to the working class!

One of the reasons I love comics is they were the first things I learned to read. And many of them - Ferd'nand, Henry etc.- had no words at all. I remember when I was about four, asking my folks who Her-cools was.

When Mom had me work it out by syllables (she taught 1st grade and always answered questions that way, or with another question) and gave me the encyclopedia to look up Hercules, that began my love of mythology and statues of people who grew shrubbery in weird places.
