Just Stuff....

I remember picking up a Calvin & Hobbes book at a book fair event in my middle school library. I flipped through, not expecting to find anything especially amusing and was caught by the humor and antics of the little boy and his tiger. I think the name of the book was Scientific Progress goes "Boink!".

I'd forgotten all about that book (by Bill Watterson) and it's characters until recently. My husband mentioned a fellow marine who had a really nice hardback collection of the comic strip series and I remembered how much fun I had reading those quirky and sometimes wry comics. Now that I think about it, Calvin and Hobbes remind me a bit of what my Hubby was prob'ly like when he was a little boy.......and still is!

So I'm taking a break from the Summer Vacation series (for what it's worth) and sharing a few funny strips that I've found on my random internet searches. I hope you enjoy them........and if you don't, visit Joanna or my cuz for a chuckle or two. I have it on good authority that they're funny ladies! (And I mean that in the best way possible!)

Love Calvin and Hobbes, but I'm bet your Hubby's family isn't loving them right now...especially with that Pittsburgh comment. Or are you not letting them see it?

One of your other cuzs,

I use to LOVE Calvin and Hobbes until I found out I was pregnant with twin boys. Suddenly I was afraid!

Aww - you think I'm funny as in ha ha. Most people just think I'm s-t-r-a-n-g-e.
