I miss them...

  1. Amen.

    I grew up with Calvin and Hobbes. The last printed comic is something I really want framed on my wall.

    I hope for enough snow each year to replicate Calvin's snowman creations.

    They bring back an innocence of our lives that we seem to have lost, and offers us usually deep thoughts into daily dealings.

  2. With a red shirt, black shorts, and his tiger my son could easily pass for Calvin come Halloween.

    This makes it depressing to then think just how medicated a kid like Calvin would be in today's society.

  3. Loved Calvin and Hobbe! Warming up outside-- already 50, maybe I should go try to bag me a squirrel? They ate all but one of my White Oak acorns. .Errrrrr. . 22 or 4.10? The 4.10 for the mood they put me in. . .This Is War!

  4. Mudbug, I still have the last strip published...I too hope one day to have it framed.

    Odysseus, very true, and the parents in counseling.

    kingturkeyoak, we're at sixty. Use the .410 but carefully pick the shot...it doesn't cook well.

  5. I have about all the Calvin and Hobbes soft cover collections. Like many of you, I grew up with it and hated to see the strip end.

  7. Just about my all-time favorite comic.
    I have *all* the soft-cover books that were released.

  8. My favorite Calvin and Hobbs was the Transmogrifier. Ah the good ol' days.

  9. drjim, mine too. I'm not sure, would have to look, but I think I have all the books. Wish he'd make a comeback.

    mmassee, I liked the simple ones....snow, Christmas, his simple 'contemplating' life strips. Thanks.
