This is my Sunday Post #3
The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's the 100th anniversary of the Funny Papers! I know because I saw it on CBS Sunday morning.
So my question is....does anyone say 'Funny Papers" anymore? Or is Comic strips or Comics more common?
When I was little we used to say funnies, but I haven't heard that for years, until this morning.
I guess it's the 100th anniversary of King Comics:
a celebration of the 100th anniversary of King Features Syndicate, a company that syndicates long-running features like Blondie, which started in 1930, and Beetle Bailey, which started in 1950 — and relatively new strips like Mutts, 1994, and Zits, 1997.
My dad loved Beetle Bailey.
If newsprint is fading away, does that mean the Funny papers too?
I have a lazy Sunday planned. I am going to make some of my mom's Chex Mix-- she always called it TV Mix. It's getting to be that time of year, the funny thing is, while I thought of making it this afternoon, I got a text from my Sister-in-law just a bit ago...
Hi! Thought of you and your mom. Happy Holidays! Love you!
GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE!!
Besides making Chex/TV Mix, I really need to do a few loads of laundry, but I don't have to cook today! Yay. I love to cook---half of this blog is about cooking, BUT I spent all afternoon cooking yesterday for company and now we will have leftovers.
I love to cook--when I want to cook, but not when I have to cook.
Today would have felt like a 'have to' day.
Other than that, I have 3 books I need to finish by Thursday. (sigh) I vow to try really hard to read as much as I can.
This past week on my blog:
It's Monday! What are you Reading. I love the weekly meme! I love finding out what everyone else is ready.
