Sunday Post #3

 
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...
 
 
 
she said:
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.
 
 
Cookbook Countdown #83.  Besides making my way thru a homemade cookbook-- I am also counting and cooking my way thru my whole cookbook collection.  It's staggering!
 
 
 
In Observance Of....  Love discovering new things about my family/ancestors and am so Thankful for men and women who serve our country!
 
Ho-Ho-Ho Read-a-Thon  YES! Call me crazy, but I'm joining up with this Read-a-Thon!  But what fun.
 
 
November Nonfiction Week 2  I am LOVING non-fiction November!!!  I am finding so SO many books to add to my TBR pile!  I need to up my nonfiction game!
 
 
Did You Ever Have a Family?  A book opinion
 
 
 
I can't let my Sunday post go by without at least mentioning Paris.
Prayers.  There is nothing else to say.

I still see, "See you in the funny papers," so I guess that means I'm pretty old.

This the first I've heard of the phrase "funny papers". I used to read Dagwood and Beetle Baily all the time.
