When I was younger these Maxine cards came out and I thought they were just hilarious. I haven't seen them in ages. Thanks!

You're welcome Krissa. And I have a whole bunch, so you'll certainly be seeing more of them! :)

I'll look forward to that. There is one in my mind that I can't quite remember, but it had to do with things on your body getting lower as you get older. Not so funny *now*!

I think I have a few of those. Comics I mean. Snort.

Maxine looks exactly like an "old lady" that lived across the street from us when I was about 10. She sat on her porch and smoked and drank all day long. Sometimes she yelled at people. None of us kids on the block went near her house. Even on (especially on?) Halloween. ... Looking back, I feel bad for her. Maybe she really was a mean person, or maybe just lonely. I found out a few years after we moved that she passed away and I guess it was awhile before anyone found her. I still think the comics are funny and I only remember her resemblence once in awhile. ... I guess it's not appropriate to make a funny remark after that little story, so I'll leave it at that.

You just never really know what a person's story is, do you? So sad.

Especially if I think of her as if she were a cat (I know you'll understand this)....did she once have a family who loved her very much and she lost them? Did she never have anyone? ... :( I feel worse for animals because they are at our mercy and can not make most people understand what they feel because they don't use words. People do have it better, but as I get older, I can feel much more empathy for people like that old "Maxine" in my childhood neighborhood. ... And because you never know what will lead to what (smile), see where this cartoon has brought us? Wow.

Hi Krissa,

Yes, I completely understand what you're saying.

And because you never know what will lead to what (smile), see where this cartoon has brought us? Indeed. But I love that because everything is so interconnected. Remember how I wrote that Cotterell's quote first appeared in the New York Journal-American? Well, I'd never heard of that publication before but saw a reference to it (apparently it was a newspaper published until 1966) the very NEXT day of posting that entry. How cool is that?!
