Differing Opinions

I have long been a fan of the comic strip FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE, in large part because the goings on in the Patterson family so closely resemble what happens in mine. John and Elly’s son got married around the same time mine did, and their two grandchildren were born around the same time mine were. Their daughter is dating and has a place of her own.  Just like mine.
Now the Pattersons are thinking about downsizing, and this comic strip really shows the same difference in thinking that my husband and I have. It really helps to know that my husband and I are not the only couple dealing with the housing issue. It’s not that I thought we were, really. It’s just that seeing it in print somehow makes it more solvable.

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again. There is nothing new under the sun.

    Maybe the authors of the comic strip read your blog. Hmmmm…
