I should think that today's notes will reveal the real reason that Lynn's anger has increased over the years. This is because John has retreated from the world because he cannot face the humiliation of having his childish stupidity and refusal to be there when Elly wants him backfiring on him. It seems to me that Rod had an inappropriate reaction to events which I'll get into in a short while.

(Strip Number 1078, Original Publication Date, 20 August 1987)

Panel 1: Mike tells Gordo, Brian and Darryl all about how Daddy got all stupid, capsized his canoe, abandoned it and spent three days huddled over a fire fifteen minutes swim time away from civilization.

Panel 2: Elly tells Mike not to be so noisy because Daddy is feeling poorly.

Panel 3: Mike asks what Daddy's suffering from.

Panel 4: John thought-bubbles that he's mostly suffering from humiliation.

Summary: Friday's notes were all about how Lynn saw what happened as a harrowing ordeal that should have humbled Rod and made him play it as safe as she does. It seems to me that Rod either downplayed the severity of it or started talking about how cool it was. Neither tendency was acceptable to the ignorant, gutless scold he married.
