    A typed letter to Grandma — wouldn’t a handwritten one be more personal?

    Just tell Grama that it’s from Calvin and that he loves her. The kind of stuff that brings a tear to a grama’s eyes

    Must be a reference to Archy the cockroach from Archy and Mehitabel.

    Calvin’s propensity to be a helpless bug is quite foreboding.

    maybe it was archy the cockroach, the reincarnation of a vers libre poet.

    Thank god for word processing. I can read but I can’t write. By that I mean, I write stuff and make a bunch of mistakes that I don’t catch unless I re-read it and make corrections. The spell checker is a big help too.

    The cartoons for Archy & Mehitabel were drawn by George Herriman, the creator of Krazy Kat (the K in RipleyKGarfield).Anyone out there know how Mr. Herriman got to draw these creatures?

    Right now, kids across the continent are wondering, “What’s a typewriter?” Well, kids, typewriters are to texting what 8-track tapes are to mp3’s: Prehistory.And here’s another “Thanks” to LeadingEdge for the how-to guide on posting images here.

    You know this strip is a classic when you see one of the characters using a typewriter.

    It’s wonderful to see so many Archie and Mehitabel references! Anyone here who doesn’t should check out the books at the library. They’re a treat!
