    You never know what’s around the corner. Which will be more shocking to John: (a) being squirted by the squirt gun his son is carrying or (b) the fact his son has lost so much hair he has a combover?

    How true that is!

    Lynn’s Notes:
    This is such an old gag image, but I had to use it here. I actually showed Aaron how to squeeze our garden hose to stop the water flowing — so he could “surprise” someone. Naturally, I was his first surprisee!

    To be honest, I really disliked Michael at this time—thought he was a real brat!

    Ahh, but what he’s about to do to John…comic nirvana!

    Actually, though, it’s the type of father-son moment that gets treasured down through the years. Spontaneous fun.

    Even more so if Elly and Lizzie get caught up in it!

    Michael’s ok. Sometimes I don’t like Lizzy though. But they’re just normal kids.

    Looks like the kid has a case of premature baldness.

    Maybe it’s a theme. See Frank & Ernest today:

    These strips were originally only in black & white. Without the color, Michael would not look partially bald.

    Is that an error in the first panel, where the balloon delivering the news is pointing at the neighbor?

    Apparently, the neighbor is making a statement, rather than asking a question. In the next panel, John is “answering”, or affirming the statement!!

    Also, in the first panel, Steve prefaces his remark with “so -,” implying that John or maybe some other source has given him this information, and he just wants confirmation, or expansion, or John’s take on the subject.
