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.
