If I don't, I'm dismissed as as a crackpot forum troll. It's possible that that you may guess correctly one part of of th...

Re: "Fortune Cookies" Discussion

Randall did a great job with the Wattersonesque landscape in the bottom comic.


Yep. My Browser only showed the top half of the comic when it opened, and the scent of Watterson was unmistakable!
