Walt Kelly, Sunday Funny-man

I love Walt Kelly because I love Pogo comic strips. Both were before my time, but I found one of his books in my grandparent's house. It's an adult comic, although kids could always view it. They just wouldn't always get the nuance.

The Kelly family is building a Web site on their father's legacy of observations, aphorisms, humor, and all the characters of the Okeefenokee swamp.

LOL! Have a great Sunday, everyone! My brain's still on fire from Abraham Lincoln. And the Board.

I grew up "reading" POGO (looking at the pictures of talking critters), and it's nice to know that Walt Kelly's legacy lives on.

Dear Bob,
I think it does live on, haphazardly. I remember finding a Pogo book and reading it as a child--but I didn't love it until I got older.

Thanks for writing in! A little memory lane, right?

My dad had a Pogo book & I LOVED it. I thought I totally "got" it (I was a teenager at the time), but perhaps I should dig it out & read it again. I'm off to check out the website.

Dear The Bug,
I know! I still have my grand-dad's book and I need to pull it out and check it all over again.

Thanks for stopping in! Hope you get a good laugh!
