"Don't You Go Anywhere"...



Hi Guys,


Sorry I've been rather silent with the blog and with emails...

I've been down with some annoying allergy attack for the past two weeks or so...At the height of it, I look like Rudolph-the-Red-Nose-Reindeer + a Panda Bear involved in a fight + a Puffer Fish who just puffed up!

Not a pretty sight...=)



Anyway, I wanted to share another Calvin & Hobbes strip that I love...It shows the side of Calvin that we don't really often get to see...The gentle, loving side of him, who is not so full of himself ;)...

I've highlighted the parts I especially like...




I guess at this age, Mum's are infallible...=)
But even Mum's have an inner child!
Calvin is back! Even if just for a while...
Like a child, the world still revolves around him...=)
Hobbes, Hobbes...=)
Awww...
Again, Awww...
Don't we all ask the same questions of Why?
Well said, Calvin Dear...




Haih...Isn't the little rascal such a dear?



Anyway, to echo Calvin, Don't you guys go anywhere too!


At, least, not yet, k?




Note: Click on the strip(s) to get a larger version =)...

Err.. we boys ain't going anywhere, Sis. Especially me being I'm holed up here on floating prison and our satellite link's been down the last few days. Arrgh! So surreptitiously at night curi client's punya line. But can't stay long laa.

Hope you feelin' better..

get well soon.probably the reason for the continuing allergic saga is the constant exposure to the same irritant........i wonder what that is???

Dear Daphne ...

I always enjoyed Calvin & Hobbes strips .. he can be a rascal but I totally likes the way he sees things .. yeah!! from HIS point of view!!

I particularly likes his survey of his Dad's popularity... it's always hilarious!! :) :)

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Kerp,

Haha...You remember the red-nosed panda huh? I missed your reference in Kak Pi's post though! But I would have recognised it! ;)

Yeap, Watterson created a Masterpiece with Calvin & Hobbes...He is a legend!

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Akmal,

Welcome and thanks for coming by! Haha...I would gladly follow that advice (one which so many people have given me) but I don't know what the allergen is! Sigh...Sadnya...Thanks for the thought though =)

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Winnie,

Awww...Thanks for the 'award' thingy...*Hugs* And it's my pleasure to share such a lovely comic strip...Calvin is just a darling...at times! Haha...

Daphne Ling said...

Hi Uncle Jimmy,

Haha...Calvin and his dad polls...Never good one...

Maybe somebody should show Calvin that advertisement we had last time...The one where the father sends the child to do something and the child comes back and gives the father his bill!

And the father takes it, and later that night, the father gives the son his own bill, and writes beside all the things he has done for the son: "No charge"...

And at the end, under total cost or something, the father writes 'Free' or something...

That was a lovely advert...It's beem so long, though, that I can't remember the details...=(
