I woke up this morning with a touch of nostalgia for the days when I was a child. I grew up about 85 miles from Chicago in a town of 20,000 people. Our hometown paper came out six days a week. It had about 12 full-sized pages or maybe 20. I don’t remember.
But I remember the Sunday papers. We’d get the big ones from Chicago — The Tribune and The Sun-Times. They had a Sunday Comics Section as big as our whole newspaper and they were in color. Sunday comics were so cool!
I’d lay the papers out on the living room floor and read them while my mom cooked Sunday lunch. The only things that made it even better were Flash Gordon on TV and the invention of Silly Putty.
So in honor of Sunday Funnies and great memories I offer you these links. Enjoy!
