You, a Michigander, and no decent gloves? You have succeeded in blowing my mind.

Hmmm ... maybe not. I've just seen - had forgotten for the moment, though I knew once - that George Merriman, of course, also created Krazy Kat. So at least I wasn't so far out in my assumption; I just can't believe I had forgotten that he was responsible for the drawings for both archy and mehitabel and Krazy Kat.

A classic for the ages. One of my favorite characters was that piano-playing Schrödinger.

Ah yes! Didn't he have a dead cat in his piano? I suppose we'll never know ...

I didn't really feel like scooping and reshaping snow while wearing my U.S. Navy-issued leather gloves...they weren't exactly meant for that activity, methinks. And I am not by any stretch of the imagination a native Michigander.

No excuses. As a Minnesotan, may I remind you of a corollary to the famous Norwegian maxim: There is no bad snowman-building weather, only bad snowman-building clothing.

We just had over a foot of snowfall yesterday, the first substantial amount we've had in what seems like a very, very long time. But I won't be building any snowmen, so I'm set. :wink:

A strip? It's a movie, a musical. Probably neither for Calvin and Hobbes
