And Watch Out For That Mistletoe

25 December 1938

Keeping it simple on the blog today. It is interesting how 75 years after the fact — as in the publication year for this cartoon — a situation can still hold.  All In A Lifetime was a cartoon series by a very gifted cartoonist named Frank Beck (1893-1962)  — this particular title ran from 1935 – 1962.When I saw this one it made me smile, hope you enjoy it as well.  As usual, click on the image for an enlargement.
