  1. These cartoons are great, maybe I am just old fashioned but It seems the humor was much better the what we see today.

  2. I have loved the Saturday Evening Post since I was a little boy when mom used to read us the comics! Thanks for all you folks do and God Bless!

  3. I have to say #4 is my favorite of this group. Busted by your angry wife looking through the window? Sooo embarrassing. #7, throwing the customer back INTO the bar realizing he hasn’t paid. #6, the customer really doesn’t know the difference. #8, it must be REALLY dry. I’ve never had a Martini, but too dry looks like it’s too much!
