    Lynn, this stuff is just as good the second time around-actually, better because the past gives it such poignancy-it seems to have more impact on me 30 years later since hindsight gives me 20/20 vision.

    I knew John didn’t have it in him to let Michael suffer. Michael also learned to listen to his Dad but also what a parent will do for his child.

    My dad passed in Nov. ‘2011. He was 87, so we had a lot of good years together. He was also the kind who would have replaced the angel in the middle of the night. Such a kind and thoughtful man. As an only child, he (and mom) spoiled me rotten, and I loved every minute. Most of all, though, it wasn’t the spoiling, but just having incredible parents to share it all with. Wow, I miss dad (and mom) so much, even today.

    Christmas magic only works in December. Dad magic works year-round.

    I wish I’d had a dad like that. No such luck. I love this strip.

    I love the ending of this story. I just wish she would show John with some of that kindness to Elly.

    Blessings to you, Susan. You need an angel. I hope you find one!

    Dad overdid the guilt and it backfired?

    Elly would find something to complain about.

    Yeah, and that “lesson” will last until the next time Michael doesn’t listen to his dad. That’s just how kids are.
