When I was about 6 I loved the "Brownies" center spread in the funny papers. That was back when we had Dick Tracy, Lil Abner, The Katzenjammer Kids and so on ... real comics. I had forgotten the Brownies until my brother took me by Jean Fuller's grave on the way to the Fisher Dam. Just near the grave was a HUGE tree and nestled in the roots were some little fairy figurines. I wondered who put them there. They jogged my memory about the comic strip. The strip was by Walt Kelly who also did Pogo.
