    And, panel #4 of strip #three has a pair of Hover Hats!!!

    And in my experience, this is a very rare treat to have Foxo Reardon deliver such a panel to our eager eyes.

    Both Nancy and Sluggo are left-handed gun wielders.

    I would enjoy reading all the Bushmiller strips that involve a toilet plunger.

    I’m reading this strip as one suggesting that drinking too much water before bedtime can lead to a visit with a toilet; ‘plunge’ being a crude metaphor in the strip today.

    Also reading a level where having a toilet plunger stick to a ceiling works for the plunger gag but I have a quite vague memory of wondering if a toilet plunger could get stuck to a ceiling as Ernie Bushmiller presents the event in a strip.

    I’m old enough to remember the Weekend Newspapers of my time.

    In those days — later 1950s, 1960s and 1970s and 80’s — panels in a Bushmiller weekend strip were in colour and some panels were in the six-inch wide & four inches high in scale.

    Those were a weekend special treat for those old enough to read and enjoy.

    Most of the colour strips I see in a newspaper today would require readers/viewers to be thrilled with panels about 3/4” of an inch high.

    A ghastly, disrespectful treament of a wonderul art form by the news publishing industry, failing to recognize itself as a ‘medium’.

    On the other hand, I do appreciate Gocomics and the other www sites that present the artform respectfully.

    As for the remainder of the www and the internet, I can only regard that stuff as a global crime scene.

    Four knobs if the door handle is considered.

    I believe that is why today we have comic strips.

    Things we can’t imagine happen in comic strips, like the tree in panel #3.

    Is it falling, or about to, or ???

    I have a need to give ”Three Rocks” a third close reading.

    Nicely spotted! I am finding Bushmiller’s large bold capital letter treatment of ‘cold war’ very apt for the time period.
