Evil Squirrel’s Nest Comic #120 — 8/14/14


Cartoon Craziness Challenge – Week 6

This week’s challenge was memories of a childhood vacation.  What?  You don’t see it?  The odds are pretty good that if you grew up in the 80’s like I did (or even the 70’s), you almost certainly took a family vacation or ten in that era’s equivalent of the big honkin’ SUV minivan, the station wagon!  Now do you see it?  Yep, who can forget the joys of riding hundreds of miles in the back of one of those elongated death traps facing backwards!  I actually pictured the concept almost immediately of setting up a tricked up Rainbow Donkey trike as a station wagon, and the rest of this week’s comic sprung forth from that idea!

    Hey, at least it isn’t in Metallic Pea with wood paneling.

    We had a primer-grey, 79 Ford LTD station wagon. That thing had built in seats in the hatchback, not that we needed the extra space. We called it the Queen Mary because it was the size of a boat.

    I only wish our vacations were driven to in that car… Stay tuned for my entry into the fray.

  2. I remember that moments… I always puked when I had to ride in the car that way, think to buy such a thingy was the worst idea ever. Oh and I remember the lemonade stand I had once, the faces of the customers look very familiar :o)

    Oh groan. Mommy says they had a wagon growing up and she used to sit in the back watching… I think that might be why she gets car sick to this day. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Ours was a Chevy something or other, light brown with wood panel. My sister named it “Betsy” and my mom drove it until some asshat damn near killed her in it when he ran a red light. Loved that car.

  6. Oh yes… we had a proper family truckster, paneling and all. Ahhh… the rear-facing green leatherette seats. I spent many a carsick moment there, breathing in the fumes of 2 different cigarette brands lit up in the front seat. I thought it was the dodgy donut grease that didn’t agree with me, but turns out it was just carbon monoxide. Ahhh… the good old days. You can’t buy memories like that anymore.

  7. I also feel like the oldest woman on the planet. Oy.

    Ah the “good ol days” before mandatory seat belts or passenger limits! LOL!!!

    This is way too funny. We had neither, but our neighbor had both.

    Looks like the Skunky Lemonade lived up to its name!
    I suppose lemonade stands are a thing of the past now that you can’t sell food or drink unless it’s been made in a certified kitchen (or is that just in the UK?).

    • Must be,because I’ve never heard of that rule before. That would eliminate all those school bake sales and outside the ballpark snack vendors! If you ever get thirsty for a little skunky lemonade, rest assured you can still get it here! 🙂

  11. This is great. I do believe our entrepreneurial endeavors were green stream water and mud pies. Probably why I am flat broke now lol
