Maybe it's not really the case, but the world seems like a far noisier and busier place these days, what with people playing radios for all to hear in their front and back gardens, kids screaming their lungs out at completely unnecessary levels, and the sound of increased traffic permeating the air, so that rare moment of peace and tranquility was very welcome and, as I said, a nice reminder of simpler, less hectic times. I almost felt like digging out a back issue from the '70s and extending the moment by burying my nose in its contents.
When was the last time you had such a moment, fellow Crivvies, and, like me, were reminded of a distant age, when the simplest and best of pleasures could be found within the enchanting pages of a weekly or monthly comic? And if any particular periodical conjures up memories of the type I've just described, when you likewise thought that forever lay in front of you, which one was it and what made it so special? Revive your past in the comments section before your recollections dissipate like morning mist in the rays of the summer sun.
