    Now there’s a lesson he wont forget !  A lesson in kindness and forgiveness. Dad forgave the accident and was kind enough to make things right.

    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.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    This was the kind of magic my dad would have performed; he was just like that.

    Dad overdid the guilt and it backfired?

    Elly would find something to complain about.
