  1. Southern Utah always reminds me of the landscapes Calvin, as Commander Spiff, used to fly through.

  4. The Spiff strips were fantastic. I also used to love Calvin's father's casual and hilarious abuse of his parental authority:

    Calvin: Where does the sun go when it sets?
    Dad: The sun sets in the west. In Arizona actually, near Flagstaff.

    C: Oh.
    D: That's why the rocks there are so red.

    C: Don't the people get burned up?
    D: No, the sun goes out as it sets. That's why it is dark at night.

    C: Doesn't the sun crush the whole state when it lands?
    D: Ha ha, of course not. Hold a quarter up. See, the sun's just about the same size.

    C: I thought I read that the sun was really big.
    D: You can't believe everything you read, I'm afraid.

    C: So how does the sun rise in the east if it lands in Arizona each night?
    D: Well, time for bed.

  5. That looks like the setting for a western, where's James Stewart? Or John Wayne?
    Back from a week in Ireland at a family wedding: never eaten or drunk so much in my life and the whole thing was a merry shambles from start to finish, ending with the 85yr old priest telling one of the English lot, 'in all my life I have never known a woman.' What could she say? She said, kindly: 'Never mind, there's still time.'

    I've got the two top tiers to freeze for (hopefully) a christening cake in a year or two!
