Some of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes strips. Bill Watterson had such an incredible cryptic and philosophical style, and it just makes me excited to read the comics over and over again.
i grew up reading these comics and the best thing is re-reading them as you get older and thinking that they are even more great than they were as a kid, because you can realte more and more to Calvin
My father and I thought it was about time to teach my brothers to shoot. During the whole time before they fired a shot. My dad kept repeating. Don’t shoot to kill unless needed. Don’t fire the gun unless you need to. They asked questions like how will we know. My dad said you will just know. But one thing never harm anyone or any living creature unless your life is in danger or they are beyond recovery from being hurt themselves. Its an Alaska thing. We don’t hurt people but we won’t be hurt. Nor does my family hurt animals unless they are suffering and we can’t save them. Or they are attacking in a way they shouldn’t. A lesson is if you don’t provoke them you can live in harmony. Nature will go its course.
I know he seems Brown. But. Actually he is a black bear. This poor guy was hurt. Shot three times with a cross bow. One of those darts were illegally laced with poison and he was left to die when I found him. We transported him back to the house and he made a full recovery!!! These animals are dangerous don’t get me wrong. But like all animals loving and gentle in spirit. This big boy tried to sit in my lap after being my guest for 3 days. Nothing but a big ole… well bear. Lol.
