Synopsis for "Now, When I Was A Boy"

This story is reprinted from New Comics #1.

Uncle Chris and his nephew are walking down the street when they spot a horseshoe on the road. Uncle Chris tells his nephew that there used to be an old saying that finding a horseshoe brought luck to the finder. As he bends over to pick it up, he gets hit by a car, does a somersault and lands directly on the metal horseshoe butt first. He gets up from traffic and evades another car. His nephew suddenly reminds him that he forgot his hat on the road and the hat gets squashed. Uncle Chris throws the horseshoe on the road in a tantrum at this sudden turn of events and hits and deflates someone's tire. The driver gets out of the car and demands twelve bucks to pay for the repairs.

Later when Uncle Chris and his nephew get home, his nephew tells his Auntie that his uncle is going to nail the horseshoe right over the door to her exasperation. Auntie then informs Uncle Chris that she will pack up and leave this house if he messes with her woodwork. Uncle Chris doesn't take her threat seriously, as he climbs on top of the stepladder and prepares to nail the horseshoe on top of the door. He hits his thumb with the hammer and falls down, taking the stepladder down with him and breaking it. His nephew asks him what to do with the horseshoe now. Uncle Chris realizes that his luck hasn't turned good because he hadn't tossed the horseshoe over his right shoulder. The tossed horseshoe nearly misses Auntie and crashes through the officer's window. Auntie tells the officer to take him along because he tried to hit her with the horseshoe just to spite him and the officer looks at him angrily though the window.
