Dad Dreams

by Brian Walker, Greg Walker and Chance Browne

Hi Dreaming

Hiram Flagston is a big dreamer. He has a decent job at Foofram Industries but has always had loftier ambitions.

This Sunday page from 1998 reveals some of his hopes for the future.

We rarely miss the opportunity to celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day in Hi and Lois. These are two of the most important family holidays of the year. Parents need to be acknowledged for the essential role they play in raising their children and contributing to society.

The challenge for us as writers is to try and make these Sunday page tributes funny and not overly sentimental. This episode shows Hi as a loving father whose dreams exceed the modest expectations of his daily reality. That is something most of us can identify with.

We hope all of our readers have a Happy Father’s Day.
