This comic strip came about by chance and coincidence, in a way that was very social-media-contemporary, yet very Boomer-ish in nature.
had tried many times and for many years, way back, to create and sell a conventional
comic strip to syndicates, but eventually gave up on the idea as newspapers
and syndicated strips went into decline.
Here is the Facebook conversation between Roberta and David:
David Laurell: I'm not alarmed (feeling it may simply be a spring clean for the may queen) Ð but I think there may be a bustle in my hedgerow. January 5, 2011 at 8:23pm
A Facebook friend of Roberta clicked "Like" on this, and Roberta found herself in the middle of the thread and chimed in:
Roberta Greenberg: There's still time to change the road you're on. January 7 at 11:08am
David Laurell: Thanks for all your input...every word of it makes me wonder! January 7 at 6:28pm
Roberta Greenberg: oooooo and it makes me wonder. January 7 at 10:49pm
David Laurell: By the way, does anyone know what the going price is for a heavenly stairway? I mean, I may like to buy one, but don't know If I could afford it. January 8 at 4:46pm
Roberta Greenberg: I saw one at the 99 Cent store. January 9 at 10:09am
David Laurell: Wow...what a deal! I'll take two! January 9 at 5:46pm
Roberta Greenberg: Your stairway lies on the whispering wind. Aisle 6. January 9 at 8:47pm
(Keep in mind that David and Roberta had never met and had no idea with whom they were conversing)
