Although I should have been able to sleep late this morning, Moose woke me up early. He was starting that croupy cough again. After I
pinned him down and nebulized my little Moose, WineGuy took them all to school for the annual Breakfast with Dad. Since I was wide awake, I decided to catch up on my blog-reading. I was surfing through Bountiful Healing and found an unusual name, Amuirin. I clicked on her name and found myself chuckling at her post about Calvin and Hobbes. It got me thinking about my favorite comic strips.
My favorite strips were one where Charles M. Schultz took 5 frames to show Snoopy eating just one piece of popcorn and where Snoopy melted all over Schroeder’s piano humming “Chopin”. Personally, I identify with Lucy.
I also love Foxtrot, but my local paper does not print that one. I love that kid, Jason! He reminds me a lot of Wild Thing.
More and more, I’ve come to identify with Connie Duncan, Jeremy’s mom in Zits. She looks at her son and sees giant feet constantly growing out of sneakers and a cavernous mouth that leads to a giant pit of a stomach, all wrapped in insouciance. In short: Wizard.
What’s your favorite comic strip?

In our current issue of “Love Letters,” the newsletter of Norman Love Confections, Norman Love proudly reports that his divine chocolates were featured in a national comic strip, “The Humble Stumble”! The cartoonist, Roy Schneider, lives here in Southwest Florida. Schneider met Love last year at a charity function. Here are the two strips. Bravo, Norman!
