Calvin and Hobbes

Christmas was a family holiday with all the highs and lows that entails. I will never drive on Christmas Eve again.

Renee and I spent the morning together before heading out to my Uncle Timmy's. She got me a pile of dvds and some lavish books but the biggest surprise was The Complete Calvin and Hobbes which must weigh about 40 pounds. It's a three volume slipcase with thousands of Bill Watterson's strips. It's a delight because I didn't expect it and it's been so long since I've read these that I forgot how beautiful they were. It's so loaded with energy, real characters and warmth that I'm glad he stopped before it got old. I got 150 pages in without even realizing it. Only 1350 to go.
