    If we’re starting over…Jan’s art work certainly got better over time.

    Well, Jan stopped on my 50th birthday – so, I could probably make it to 75 with the reruns!

    Old comics never die… they just go into reruns. At least I get to catch what I missed.

    I don’t know where the original date stamp is but this is one is new to me. I guess the girls are shorter than last Sunday? Anyway, I’m happy.

    The first Stone Soup in the GoComics archives… which isn’t always the first strip ever, but the first one they have the rights to…

    Is November 11th, 1995…

    Or just click the double arrow, to the left, under the strip.


    Copyright years are usually visible in one of the white strips between panels…

    This one is almost completely blurred out…maybe on purpose?

    But I enlarged it till I could barely make out 1997.

    The month and day is usually changed to reflect the current date, so you can’t count on it…

    but just for the heck of it I checked August 2nd, 1997.


    It was a Saturday… but this strip ran the next day…

    Sunday, August 3rd, 1997.

    I don’t know why, but we may be skipping the first 9 months, in this rerun… or maybe the Sundays aren’t in order… we’ll see.


    Meanwhile… Stone Soup Classics started a few years ago with the first strip…

    and is now I think in 2000. (I’m not so crazy I check all the time.)

    It’ll be interesting to see if the parallel versions both keep running.

    Old Stone Soup is better than no Stone Soup at all!

    I’m just glad that Stone Soup didn’t just disappear. I came late to the show, so I’m eager to see as many as I can.

    I remember reading Stone Soup back in the early nineties. Sad there won’t be any new ones, but glad to be able to read all the old ones….

    My mom went to an Elderhostel photography class in which the teacher asked to see each camera. He chose hers and said it was a great camera with a PHD.

    She was happy.

    Until he said “That stands for ‘P‍ush H‍ere D‍ummy!’ ”

    Wait! What? I didn’t expect to see any more entries in this strip. I almost deleted it from my list.
