Yesterday, I posted some Calvin and Hobbes snowmen cartoons that are always funny and never get old for me. Whenever I think of cartoons, the sound of my oldest son's laughter is the next thing that comes to mind. Daniel was a huge Garfield fan. Every Christmas he received the newest Garfield book. No matter where I was in the house, when I heard him giggling I knew he was reading his books. I loved that sound. I mentioned this to my daughter in law a couple of years ago. She said he still reads Garfield (and shares his love for the curmudgeonly feline with his oldest daughter now) and she said he still giggles out loud when he reads his books.
One of her gifts to him this Christmas was the new Garfield release. I'm thankful some things never change.
