Joan (aka “Georgia”) came into my brother’s life when my kids were in elementary school. Because we were living in such a remote area, they didn’t see a lot of Uncle Al, and didn’t have the opportunity to observe his relationships. I did! Knowing he would read all the strips which alluded to him, I openly needled him, hoping he would spill the beans and let me in on his plans for the future. He didn’t…until he was prepared to see it in the paper!
