i think it is a great idea for a sandwich shoppe.
what is the street address or strip shop name?

i am a retired culligan employee and remember when
CHIC YOUNG did a comic strip and used the name
culligan instead of mulligan in a dagwood golf
comic strip. this was many (40 or so) years ago.

good luck vince

I wanted to ask Mr. Dean Young a question. In THE ADVOCATE, Tuesday, September 18, 2006, Dagwood was working on The “Bilberry” Contract, which was driving him crazy. Was the acount named after a person, or was it the berry ? Bilberry is our family name and we were so excited about the comic strip. Please tell us why you used the name!!! Thanks!

I was born on July 2, 1941 and a year later was nicknamed Cookie by my dad – from the Blondie comic strip naming their girl Cookie. I want to find a copy of the strip where Cookie was named; I understand it was the result of a national name the baby contest. My hope is to contact Dean Young to find that particular strip.
[I see Dean and I share the same birthday, July 2 – not the year].
Thank you so much, Cookie Johnson
