A Bodacious Snuffy Smith Fan!

We have family friends, Brett and Michelle Horton, who live in Rome, GA.  A few weeks ago they clipped and mailed me the front page story from their local newspaper, the Rome News-Tribune (which is a Snuffy Smith comic strip subscriber).  The story was titled “Fan Identifies With Snuffy” and it was about a local woman named Sue Davis who has clipped and collected hundreds of her favorite Snuffy Smith comic strips and placed them in a binder for over 50 years!  The first entry in her binder is a Snuffy Smith comic strip her future father-in-law gave her in 1964 about babies. He was hinting that he wanted lots of grandchildren one day!  From that point on, Sue began collecting and creating her own Snuffy Smith book collection!  Wow!  You can read the full story here.

Public Service Ad Campaign: Snuff Out Wildfires Before They Start

I’d like to share with you a special Snuffy Smith project that I have been working on this past winter that is very special to my heart. I live in Virginia, but since I was a child, my family has often vacationed in Eastern Tennessee, mostly in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. My wife and I have continued that tradition with our daughters. In addition to vacationing there, for the last four years, I have been a guest of the City Of Pigeon Forge for Wilderness Wildlife Week, giving Snuffy Smith Chalk Talks and Cartooning For Kids workshops each year during that week.
