“One measure of friendship consists not in the number of things friends can discuss, but in the number of things they need no longer mention.“– Clifton Fadiman quotes
This is the sad tale of Mutt and Jeff (not their real names). Jeff is the taller of this troubled duo and is easily swayed by his friend to get into situations that border on the delinquent. In the inset Jeff’s mom is trying to coax the boys to not play near a construction site but Mutt is trying to convince her that it is perfectly safe to do so. In the end the mother gave up and left the boys to their own devices. Sadly,Jeff has placed his trust in a friend that is not real a true friend. –gc

There is a glimmer of hope to this story. Mutt and his family have moved away from the area and now that school is back in session there is a chance that Jeff will associate with and form a friendship with a truer friend.
