    It was many years before I knew that the comic strip Hi and Lois was a spin-off of Beetle Bailey - Lois Flagston is Beetle's sister and they have had occasional cross-over strips in the past.  Two classic comics from one very talented cartoonist.

    Note about another cartoonist:
    Bill Keane, a cartoonist who chronicled the lighter moments of family life for more than 50 years through the gentle, heartfelt humor of the "Family Circus" comic strip, has died. He was 89.
    Keane died Tuesday of congestive heart failure at his longtime home in Paradise Valley, Ariz., according to King Features Syndicate, which distributes the daily comic.

    I loved Beetle Bailey, Hi and Lois and Family circus. Sorry to hear these wonderful cartoonists are gone.

    Been reading both of those for years and never knew that. Thanks for that tidbit!
