Day 10: A Childhood Memory

 Day 10 of the challenge is a childhood memory.  I have tons of memories that are much more important than this one, but this is one of the extra fun memories that I have from my childhood.

I remember going to the library and picking out all sorts of books on different subjects from fascinating tales of adventure to historic stories of great men and women.  Before I left the library though, I always made sure to stop by the Calvin and Hobbes section and pick up one of the comic collection books.  Mom would only let me get one Calvin and Hobbes at a time, otherwise I may have checked out all 5 of them every time! :o)

I enjoyed the craziness of Calvin's ornery world, and I still enjoy reading these and catching the deeper life meanings that are tucked into some of the strips.

Are any of you fans of Calvin Hobbes?  Leave a comment below and tell me who your favorite character was!  Mine would have to be Spaceman Spiff (One of Calvin's secret identities.)

 So true...."Mom speak" can be so different from "kid speak".

 Don't we all get a little too prideful of our power at times?  It's good to know that a merciful God is really in charge and not us!

And this one just makes me laugh every time I read it. :o)


  1. I love Calvin and Hobbes!!! To choose a favorite character between Calvin or Hobbes is really impossible-they both need each other. I like the sarcastic humor of Hobbes and how he is like Calvin's conscience, and Calvin's imagination and mischievousness is hilarious! This is by far one of my favorite comic strips even today

  2. The above comment was made by Roger Young

  3. Calvin and Hobbes is second only to Garfield! :-)

  4. Oh man, I haven't read Calvin and Hobbes in ages! I have a younger brother who used to remind me of Calvin sooooo much. He even had the same hairstyle!!!

    Next time I go to the library I'm going to have to get one of the books...
