    Calvin will think he’s not loved. Like his expression in panel three

    I haven’t had time to read a book for a very long time, it’s only enough time to read the newspaper!

    Fran650: I’m so sorry to hear about Kizzy! It’s so difficult to lose a pet!

    I was out to lunch with the girls from my exercise group at the YMCA a few days ago. They were all seriously discussing the novels they were reading and that they exchange them with each other. They asked me what I was reading and would I like to contribute to the exchange. When I said I was reading Disney’s Aladdin with my granddaughter you could have heard a pin drop!

    Calvin’s look in the third panel is priceless. LOL

    This is surreal. Calvin’s Dad is just like mine.

    Calvin is slowly getting the idea that his is not the only life.

    If Calvin continues going the way he is, I doubt Dad will live long enough to get to a nursing home.

    Two punchlines in one strip! My favourite being “That was our last hope.”

    Dads right he can then finish his book. Boy is Calvin going to be surprised when he starts missing Mom and Dad and Hobbes spends more time with Susie and Calvin jr.

    LeslieAnne, Thank you, but you still should be able to get the song. You can click on the link and then search “John Gary” at the top of the window, or you can go to and search for John Gary - Once Upon a Time. The October 5 link works for me, too. Enjoy the snow and cold! Brr! “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm” …I wish!

    Now Dad should have Calvin sit on his lap, and he can read Calvin a “Once Upon a Time” story.

    That’s exactly what I was wondering! With a son like Calvin getting into trouble every time he turns around if you don’t watch him like a hawk … I’d say it probably *is* still the same book from a few days ago!!!!!

    Calvin’s plans of being the richest man alive someday are something that should definitely be nurtured and encouraged by his parents!!! Even if he doesn’t earn as much as he’d like (or expects!), he’d still be out there striving for that dream and taking care of himself, which is something they should want for him as well as themselves! Too many kids these days are just lazy boomerang slackers sponging off their parents because they have absolutely no ambition whatsoever to support themselves. Why should they when they’ve got their parents to do that for them? I say: You *go*, Calvin!

    Good point. But knowing Calvin, hard work would probably be his method of last resort in trying to get rich!

    GretchensMom, I don’t really agree with encouraging Calvin to become the richest man alive–Calvin has plenty of other dreams, and most or all of them fit him better. When I was young, I had dreams of going into politics and becoming a great statesman–for all the wrong reasons, and it definitely didn’t fit me. Being rich (to be rich) wouldn’t fit Calvin any better.

    Far better to find a fulfilling dream, and get engaged in it, and then he won’t notice the work, or the riches that may come from it.
