Timeline – 2002 Part 2

Hi and Lois Sunday page digital proof, March 17, 2002.

When this Sunday page was published, mail order catalogs were sent regularly to shoppers from many of the major retail outlets.  Now that most consumers purchase products online, not as many companies send printed sales brochures.

Here is a swimsuit catalog from the same year as the episode above.

The Swimsuit Issue


A few weeks ago, Sports Illustrated published their annual swimsuit issue. Displaying sexy fashion models in skimpy bathing suits in the frigid month of February has been a tradition at the magazine since 1964.

Although Lois Flagston is the quintessential suburban mom, she is also an attractive woman. Artist Eric Reaves drew Lois sporting contemporary beachwear in the recent Sunday page panel shown above. This was not the first time she appeared in a bikini.
