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.
