Snarky Candiru2

In today's strip, Mike is presented as espousing wrong-think because he wants very much to avoid having to deal with change.

(Strip Number 916, Original Publication Date, 13 August 1985)

Panel 1: John finds Michael in a sad mood and asks him what's got him down.

Panel 2: Michael explains that he's upset because there's a for-sale sign in front of Lawrence's house before asking WHY he has to move away.

Panel 3: John tells him that nothing stays the same in life and that change is something you have to accept. Michael tells him that he's OK with some change.

Panel 4: Given that the change that he could actually accept is Lawrence moving with them, we're being hit over the head with the idea that children are selfish and want Connie to suffer the cruel indignity of seeing Ted with other women.

Summary: This, I think, is the strip in which Lynn thinks that the reason she doesn't know if children feel more strongly about change is because they hide it from her.

Lynn’s No-Fail Turkey Recipe

As usual, I will quote and comment although I am not quoting the recipe part.

Lynn’s friend Brenda runs an event-planning business, Meehan & Associates, in Las Vegas. Brenda recently shared Lynn’s no-fail, make-ahead turkey recipe on her blog, Practically Perfect Planner. Check it out for yourself!
