My wife Abby and I are real dog lovers. A number of years ago, I gave her tickets to the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden as a Christmas present, which inspired this Hi and Lois Sunday page.
The world of Hi and Lois takes place in a time warp. The frames of reference are constantly changing. In this Sunday page from 1957, Hi reminisces about his childhood.
Hi’s nostalgic daydreams were from over thirty years in the past. Dirigibles, biplanes and flagpole sitters were things he would have seen in the 1920s. The Lindy cap became popular after Charles Lindbergh’s daring transatlantic flight in 1927. WPA, PWA, CCC and NRA were government agencies from FDR’s New Deal during the Great Depression. Major Bowes Amateur Hour made its debut on radio in 1934.
