Set the way-back machine for today’s comic. It’s from September 22 of 1952. The name of the strip is “Elsworth”, written by “Seeg”.

I wasn’t able to find out much about this comic strip, except that it was originally named “Hank and Honey”, and that “Seeg” was the pen name for Bernard Segal. “Hank and Honey” ran from 1946-1949, and then it ran as “Elsworth” until 1958.

Today’s comic strip comes from Diamond Lil, by Brett Koth. Here’s how the GoComics page describes her:

Diamond Lil is a feisty 75-year-old widow living in Turkey Knuckle, Indiana, who doesn’t suffer fools, or anyone else for that matter, gladly. Her interests include telling people what she really thinks, hot bingo and cold Schlitz. She also has a thing for Pat Sajak’s butt.

In February, 2011 there was a whole series of strips where Diamond Lil was modifying snowmen to make them more scary (or at least more interesting). This comic is one of that series.

Some people will even go barefoot in the snow for their mischievousness. (And some of us do it because we like it!)

Being shoeless is so much more comfortable that you don’t even need plush carpet to appreciate it.

Our comic strip for today is from Emmy Lou, by Marty Links. While the republish date is March 3, 2014, it looks like it was originally published on July 20, 1964.

Emmy Lou started out as a strip, in 1944, called Bobby Sox (named after a very popular shoe of the time). In 1954, as the “Bobby Sox” fad changed, so did the name of the strip.

I think this particular cartoon shows how casually teenage girls would (and could) go barefoot back in the 1960s.
