I read Funky Winkerbean. The rumor here is that the High School is actually Westerville High School, here in Westerville OH, not that it matters, it certainly resembles a mid-western area. The writer has certainly hit on several important issues, divorce, war, and cancer. I was sorry to read that Lisa is having a recurrence. Hopefully she will beat the beast for good this time. Sometimes writers, and non-writers too, find it cathartic to write about what is, for them, out of control. I hope that whomever he is writing about gets well soon.
It seems that our fears never really go away. I am suppose to NEVER get the type of breast cancer I had "again". BUT they have never said I won't get some type of B/C again. So, I fear mammos and doctor visits and sometimes have to fight the fear.
Love and hugs to you,
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: if one falls down, his friend can help him up. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
