I’ve been busy for quite some time working on another collection of my old magazine cartoons. I think the new book will have about 150. It’s really a big job. Torbjörn has helped me tremendously with the daily collections, and I’ve almost fixed all my mistakes, at least the ones he found for me. Believe me, it’s easy to make mistakes especially if you’re old and dumb like moi. I try to do it right by laying out everything before I put together the books in Word. If you’re interested, and if you have Excel, here is the layout of the upcoming collection:

    Since you’ve mentioned that the translations were sometimes funnier, this may be one example. If only because here in Sweden, Sid could promise Arnold a plaque with the portrait of the king himself. And, in a typical bit of Sid fibbery, he claimed that it was made from the noblest of metals. (I just checked, they stopped using silver for the 1 crown coin in 1968.)

      When I was about 8 years old Uncle Al took me and my two cousins to a quarter mile dirt track. He promised whomever could predict the winner of a race would be presented with a solid copper plaque engraved with a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. We were very excited. My cousin Bobby won.

      My Uncle Al pulled that trick on me and my cousins when we were about 8 years old. It was at a quarter miler track in Connecticut. Whoever picked the winner would be awarded the plaque. We were very excited. My cousin Bobby won.
