Our latest Snowmagedden brought back memories of one of the earliest comic books I can remember reading. Little Lulu was a plain Jane ageless pre-teen with a thimble-hat, whose parents were rarely seen or heard, but had countless humorous encounters with her boy friend, Tubby, brother Alvin and her curious puppy.
For this snow-deprived California born lad, her most memorable adventure was digging out of her home alone after a blizzard that left drifts above the roof line. My comic book collection is long gone, but Google brought the circa 1950 story back to life. Loved the fact that she could dig a tunnel for blocks that beelined to the front door of her favorite soda fountain. Holsteins here I come!
