Saturday Comic

I always love Red and Rover for the casual look at how kids used to go barefoot during the summer.

This one, from June 29, 2016, is just plain-old cute.

I’m Going Down

In writing up my trip Out West, it’s now time for my backpacking trip down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, where I camped at the Bright Angel Campground (after getting a permit).

Ziggy is the nebbish that everybody seems to pick on. So I guess this is appropriate. The comic appeared on February 24, 2015. I have modified it slightly.
