Salutations people

Cheers

Thanks for sharing this wonderful little cartoon, Greg (and as it doesn't start before the seventies, I somehow can relate to it personally, too)! We've got it here as well, by the way (with Forum member comments):

Thanks for the cartoon.

Despite the age progression, are we not nourished and alive because of the LC context, (sans the sexist beard) ?

Leonard, I agree about hte "nourished and alive" - bit (semms to go for LC himself too, in a way!), BUT - sexist or not, I am quite glad actually I don't have a beard!!

Hmmm, I think I know at least one of the possible candidates quite well - never mind the walking stick though! ;-)
