The Birthday Gift

This is the way it really is

This is the way it really is

So mom’s 70th birthday came and went and with some fanfare, I might add.  It was the same weekend as Ken & Ilona’s wedding so everyone who could be there was in the room.

So I had this idea for a gift for mom – a unique gift, only one that I could create. So the idea for the comic was born and it took its inspiration from my years of being a son. Who has profitted from his mother’s wisdom, but endured some typical offspring suffering as a result. No doubt the suffering was a two-way street.

So the text you see is real life. DOesn’t get much more real than that.

But the best part was simply that mom loved the gift. She has a print version of it and will be hanging it up in her condo soon (with my help).
