Now truly lucky

Here’s my childhood hero, Lucky Luke, circa 1979.

Just lucky.

And here’s Luke in 2009.

It's not just luck, he's smart as well.

Turns out he’s not just lucky, he’s smart as well. And, turns out I’m slow again. Apparently, Luke quit smoking and switched the cigarette to a straw in 1983. (Then again, of the 73 albums, only 21 have been published in 1983 or later. I remember him always having that cigarette in his mouth.)

Or, thereabouts. But never losing it.

How does that make you feel?
