Saturday Comic

Today’s comic is from an old strip called Cuties, by E. Simms Campbell. Campbell was the first African-American cartoonist to really break out, and regularly appeared in Esquire Magazine, among others. He also did the Cuties comic strip.

This cartoon was published on January 16, 1960.

OK, it’s very, very late Saturday. So late that everybody insists on calling it “Sunday”. But better late than never.

Today’s comic comes from Rose is Rose. It was published on May 29, 1996. It was sent to me by a reader of this blog.

Barefoot in the White House?

It seems my Facebook feed is full of barefoot friends excitedly pointing out one of these two stories: Michelle Obama Says You Can Go Barefoot in the White House, FLOTUS’ barefoot policy for the White House, and Michelle Obama Has an Amazing Dress Code Policy for White House Guests.

It’s an interesting point. Somehow it is humans that are supposed to get cold feet in the winter, but barefooters know that we can handle much colder temperatures than most folks expect. (That said, a lot of snow just doesn’t do it for me.)

If you are going to hell, make sure you are a barefooter first. Then the Legos won’t bother you.

 

On the (Chacoan) Roads Again

Let me continue from where I left off describing my trip Out West. I’m now up to August 18, when I hiked the Pueblo Alto trail. I’ve hiked it in every time I’ve been to Chaco Canyon (twice before), and written about it in Pueblo Alto and Getting High.

This time let me emphasize the Chacoan Roads a bit.
