A couple of weeks back I sent a note to Lynn Johnston, the creator of For Better or For Worse. Having read her strip my entire life, I was somewhat saddened to see that she would be starting a partial retirement in September of this year. I can’t blame her–she’s been in syndication since before I was born– but it’s the end of an age. Anyway, I wanted to send a note just saying congratulations on all of her hard work and that I would miss the regular stories.
I got a really nice note from her today! She signed and drew Elly on it! How cool is that?
The generous gesture of responding–when I’m sure she probably gets tons of fan mail–really touched me. So that was my happy moment for today.
