Oh! Happy, Happy Friday everyone!  I'm so glad it's here.  I'm just relaxing in front of my pretty tree with a glass of diet coke. It's beautiful outside.  We had a frosty start to our morning, but the temperature has risen to a lovely 50's.

A beautiful blue sky, I just love the bare branches against the sky.

Today is Friday and I like to do a little trip down memory lane on Fridays.  Today I'm reminiscing about my favorite comics.  Did you have a favorite comic growing up?  I get a kick out of the TV show The Big Bang Theory and the way they all collect comics.  Of course, they go for the Super Hero comics and I liked the ones that were much less dramatic. My favorite was Little Lulu.  

I think I may have read this very one.  There is something about the artwork in comics from the 50's and 60's that appeals to me.  I especially love beach scenes and snow scenes in comics.  I guess they were simplistic, which suited my simplistic child mind just fine.  Stories never too complicated, no real drama.  

Do you remember this one?  It was a favorite too.  I don't really remember too much about the actual stories, just how much fun I thought they were. I only liked the funny ones.  The Archie comics were fun to read, and I enjoyed the more teenage themes when I got older.

I love remembering these small things that brought joy to the youngster Me.  Thanks for stopping by, hope you are thinking of your favorite comic!


  1. Archie was my favorite for sure. I remember saving my money so I could go to the drugstore down the street and buy it. What a trip down memory lane that was?

  2. Hi Leslie...

  3. Hi Leslie! Oh, I loved the Archie comics! I kept them forever. Wish I still had them! Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,

  4. Those were my favorites as a kid also and I loved the Archie comics as a teen. Just realized you live in Ga also! I'm your newest follower.

  6. I sure remember all of these. I loved getting the Sunday newspaper and reading the comics section. Then as I got older I liked the Sunday section that had recipes (surprise, surprise on that one!)

  7. Hi there, Thank you for coming by my blog to visit. I love yours-and in fact scrolled back through them all to see if I could find a photo of your beloved Champ-but didn't have any luck. I'm wondering if he looked like my Reggie, what mix do you think he was? I see some Jack Russell(or did when he was young) and some spaniel. He is a gentle old guy except with children.
    Thanks for visiting. I'll be back again.
    Hugs, Noreen

  8. If I own up to having read any of those, I'll be giving away my age. LOL!
