This ‘toon brought back happy long ago memories of my dad sitting for hours on a stool in a virtual closet that he turned into his ’radio shack’ — exchanging conversation with other ham operators he’d manage to connect with… He’s been gone many years now but I still remember his call letters — OXB - which stood for OBOE-XRAY-BAKER- and I like to think he’s still sitting somewhere in the spirit world sending out messages and getting ones I send to him.
Difference or no difference… Payne’s drawings of Shrillary and Brady are fantastic. He’s nailed them both — maybe to the cross!?
Peace and Quiet! My sentiments exactly
No, Gweedo — you were right the first time. “Brain” is the correct first name for cartoonist Crane — In my book he’s one of the cleverest, talented, ‘brainest’ cartoon scribblers of our times!
Grim — but probably closer to reality than we realize … Also terribly cleverly depicted!
Music to my ears!
Apples don’t fall from their trees — not even GRAND-apples.
Thank you, milady1. Yesterday’s strip cracked me up cause I also have a sister who is younger than me, but she’s NINE years younger— and her name is Sheila — however, our mother’s name was Pearl!
Does anybody recall what Opal’s sister’s name is?
