    That was your one chance and missed the perfect time to regain their sanity before Calvin.

    I remember always wanting to stay with relatives when I was younger. It was always different and exciting.

    Max, be careful what you wish for. You might get it.

    To visit uncle Max is a fine aspect and everything before is forgotten!

    Doesn’t every parent sometimes feel like this?

    But what about Hobbes? He’d have to mail himself to Uncle Max’s house.

    Are you sure they were sane prior to having Calvin pouncingtiger?

    johnnydoc5 and Ivy0730Lcsq: I actually can remember an expansion on that–wishing to spend more time (or stay) with certain relatives while wishing to avoid (unsuccessfully, I actually was forced to visit these at their homes) others.

    Haha I think this is precisely why we don’t see Uncle Max again, too scared that Calvin might try to take advantage of that opportunity again.

    I’d like to see Calvins imagination take hold of a security pat-down at todays airport. Alien creatures would surround him with all sorts of devices designed to read his mind and extract state secrets.

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha I love the last panel. I can’t stop laughing about that. Well, so long Uncle Max! Have a safe and sound trip! Come back and visit us some time. I am sure Calvin’s parents think Calvin is such a pester.

    Calvin wears a winter jacket with hood.

    Honey R: no, he was wearing one when they went to pick him up too. Other than that, though, I think this is the only series besides snow serieses.

    In that case, don’t even dare to look at Pibgorn, Dick Tracey, State of the Union, or other popular strips! :-)

    ”I never get to do anything fun.”

    LOL—That pitiful, self-absorbed attitude is exactly what makes Calvin’s world so constantly chaotic….and so much fun for the rest of us!

    It’s interesting to note that Hobbes never made an appearance while Uncle Max was visiting. Wonder what he thinks of Max?

    Actually - he did when Max first arrived. Max said he had “a killers eye” and I believe Hobbes was quite impressed.

    I, too, was shocked that Calvin could just waltz off like that without thinking of Hobbes! The probably would have had to turn the plane around on the taxiway.

    I will miss Max. He added something new. Turns out Calvin and Max developed quite the friendship.

    Mom and Dad often disscussed about the ‘huge’ cost to raise Calvin lol and at one time they needed a babysitter while they went out, they laughed at quite out loud, cuz they will away from Calvin for a while, even just couple hours, that’s tough!
