Saturday Comic

In all the time I’ve been doing these Saturday Comics, I have not repeated one. However, since today is Earth Day, I think this one deserves repeating.

Pogo, Earth Day, 1971

It’s the 1971 Earth Day poster from Walt Kelly. (Needed now more than ever.)

 

Scioto Grove Floodplain Clean-Up

This morning I spent a bit of time helping do a floodplain clean-up at the Columbus Metroparks newest park, Scioto Grove. The clean-up was announced at the last minute, and I only really decided to go after I got up this morning.

Saturday Comic

Oops. I forgot to put out a comic yesterday. Well, let’s just call this late-Saturday. Very-late-Saturday.

This strip is from August 2, 2004, and features an old stand-by, Red and Rover. Set in the 1960s, Red goes barefoot most of the summer.

If Popsicle Pete gets “popsicle toes”, I bet he drives the truck barefoot (which, of course, is completely legal).

 

About two years ago I had the opportunity to visit Glenford Fort, a Hopewell hilltop enclosure in Perry County, the next county over from my county, Fairfield County. (Other Hopewell hilltop enclosures include Spruce Hill, Carlisle Fort, and Fort Hill.) As part of that visit to Glenford Fort, I used my LiDAR-processing software to look at the area.

But about a year later, in a totally unrelated context, I was using the same software to look at a different place. And what I saw AMAZED me! (Clickbait!)

Saturday Comic

Today lets go with a strip from Frank and Ernest, which was started by Bob Thaves and is currently drawn by his son, Tom. This appeared last November 17.

Aside from the comic getting the way to ride a skateboard “anatomically correct”, I think by doing so it is showing more “enlightenment” than the author intended.

 

Saturday Comic — April Fool

So, I hope you noticed that, for the first time, today’s barefoot Saturday Comic didn’t feature anything barefoot.

Check the date.

It was still a pretty good comic, though, wasn’t it? (And maybe even a bit relevant to barefooting.)

For some reason, about half the time Sam & Silo has their “barefoot” character wearing shoes, and I’ve never figured that out. However, their strip published today did have a good-old barefoot Floyd (what great timing). And here it is:

Actually, from what I can tell, the improved circulation from going barefoot helps prevent blue lines.

Here’s our comic for today, published February 4th of this year. It’s from Sam & Silo, featuring Floyd, officially described as “a wild man given to spouting incoherent poetry, walking around barefoot, or carrying odd protest signs.”
