  1. Hi1 haven’t been to vist for a while. Haven’t watched any movies either. But, did see your post on sunday comics. I grew up w/ the ‘funny papers’. It was always a race to see who’d get them after dad got done w/the paper. We even wrapped presents in the funny papers. I still read them every week.
