Sunday Funnies #19: Thanksgiving Day Edition

I have a lot to be thankful for this year.  First, my Kiddo is happy and healthy and living in California with her new husband and I will be seeing them at Christmas when they come to visit.

I'm thankful for my friends and family, even if I don't get to see them very often.  And I am thankful for my online friends, even though I haven't met many of them.  One of the things I love about blogging is getting to know so many people all over the world, an opportunity that can be found in few other ways.   Thank you to all my followers and readers.  Your presence on my blog is much appreciated.

Thanksgiving was hit hard in WWII because of rationing and it wasn't lost on the people who drew comic strips for the newspapers, as you can see:

I wish everyone a happy and bountiful Thanksgiving


  1. Thank you! Seeing Nancy here was like seeing a childhood friend. (Although I wasn't around for the 1943 editions.

    1. I know, I felt the same way. I used to love reading comic strips in the newspaper and especially the Sunday funnies when they were longer. Nancy was a favorite and so was Gasoline Alley. I wasn't around for the 1943 editions either but have a slew of strips for later posts.

  2. Glad you have so much to be thankful for this year. :) So glad your daughter will be able to visit at Christmas.

    I enjoyed seeing the comics. I always used to read Nancy in the paper growing up.

    I was just talking about your blog today at work. Someone wanted a good HF book for a 5th grader set during WWII. I said- oh let's check my friend's blog- there are tons of reviews for us to look through. :) Thanks!
