Timeline – 2006 Part 2


Hi and Lois Sunday page digital proof, April 2, 2006.

In this episode, we had fun imagining the early love life of Hi and Lois, back when they first started dating.

I was a teenager in the 1960s, before cell phones, dating apps and social media.  The guy would usually call his prospective partner on the phone and ask her out.  I always got nervous not knowing what the answer would be.  What to wear was always a challenge for the girls. Blue jeans and a sweater?  A dress with fancy shoes?  My father had an antique MG sports car that I never got to drive.  Instead I took the family station wagon. Typical destinations were movie theaters, parties, dances or restaurants.  We would talk over dinner, go for a romantic stroll and end the date with a good night kiss.  I remember these times fondly.

We decided to end this nostalgic strip on a positive note.  Hi and Lois have agreed to go out on a rare “date.”  They’ll need to find a babysitter first.

Check back here next week for more classics from the collection.
