Childhood Treasures - Reading the Comics

As soon as I could read (I can’t remember when I couldn’t) I enjoyed the buried treasure of the printed word. I read the “funnies” (we never called them the comics) whenever we got the Sunday paper: Mutt and Jeff, Mary Worth, Little Orphan Annie, The Katzenjammer Kids, Popeye the Sailor Man, and my favorite, Dick Tracy. He fostered a secret desire to be a detective as I believed I could be just sneaky enough to gain information no one else could. I marveled at all the gadgets he had, especially his wrist watch that he used like a radio.

I, too, remember the funnies as being an intragAl part of my early life. It was part of our little family’s Sunday ritual. Sunday was the only day we were allowed to eat breakfast in the living room while we lay around reading the funnies and enjoying coffee and doughnuts for breakfast Before we left for Sunday school. I liked Duck Tracy’s two-way, radio wristwatch, but I never dreamed I’d have one, and such an improved version at that. Who could have foreseen the miraculous iPhone? !!
