It's all downhill from here. Well, at least heading down to the beach on these wooden stairs. Shadows don't lie. I grew up with Mad Magazine. Eddie would buy them, and I'd get a look at them second-hand, with a few stains from the oil of his Italian sandwiches. I loved the movie parodies and a few of the reoccurring strips. Maybe my favorite was "Shadows Don't Lie". There were two pictures side-by-side. One showing the actual scene, and the next one relating how the person shown really felt. One was called 'Blind Date' with a guy opening the door and greeting a rather homely young lady, with complimentary words. The next picture, 'in the shadows', revealed how he truly felt. It showed him puking out fish bones, tin cans and other assorted hunks of food. This image still makes me chuckle. I'll still take a look at the newsstand, if I spy the new monthly issue. At Christmas, J- always gets the 'Year in Review' issue. I strongly believe in the adage. There is truth among the shadows.
