    For Better For Worse is the only comic I read– it has brought me so much joy over the years. It’s the first thing I read when I open the paper.

    Thank you Julia for sharing this insightful interview here at 5 Minutes for Mom.

    I always loved reading “For Better For Worse” and it’s so interesting to hear from the creator. I definitely have to buy that collection.

    Thank you Susan, for given me the opportunity to do a guest post here. It was a real pleasure! I would love to get a few more of the collections…they make me laugh out loud sometimes!

    It’s impossible to express just how much I enjoyed today’s (l0/26/11) strip!! Years ago a group of us girls (at former Susan Bates, Inc., Chester, CT) gave a shower for one of our cohorts who was expecting the arrival from overseas of an adopted child. I “built” a plane out of cardboard and purchased two balloons, to be attached to the “plane”. One read “Hi, Mom!”; the other “I’m on my way!”. The woman helping me with the set-up failed to hang onto one of the balloons, and it soared away “who knows to where”. The released balloon was, of course, the one reading “I’m on my way!”
    Susan Bates, Inc., was a company which had been in business in Chester, CT, for 131 years — until jobs were being shipped overseas: originally a multi-generation family business which truly appreciated the employees. I was one of the very fortunate employees: as factory payroll clerk I had rapport with every level, from upper echelon to the janitorial level: THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS!
