Today's new-ruin is, I'm told, a moderately-sweet moment shared between a boy and his uncle; looking at this sort of thing makes me think that it's sort of a bummer that Phil didn't think that he was dad material.

Panel 1: It's a little bit later and Mike, who's about to go to sleep for real, says "You know this is my bedroom, don'cha, Uncle Phil?" Phil, who's a better house guest than Mike will ever be despite his smoking a pipe in the vicinity of a small child, thanks him for giving it up for the duration.

Panel 2: Mike acts like an actual child by reminding Phil that he can sleep in his bed an'touch his stuff --- 'cept his teddy; Phil can't have him. Phil smiles and says "No?"

Panel 3: He then says "Oh, well...I'll try and sleep without a teddy. It'll be tough, man, but I think I can do it" as he gets into bed.

Panel 4: A few minutes later, we see Mike in the cot he's sleeping in over the holidays. Well, he wants to sleep but something is keeping him up.

Panel 5: That 'something' must have been concern for Phil 'cause he just tucked Super Teddy under the man's arms.

Summary: I like this strip; it shows you what Lynn can do if she tries.
