This idea makes sence to me, and I like it.
Don Rosa once point out that the story of HD&L parents return, would never
had a happy end. They either would have to vanish agian on the end, all take
the boys away from Donald (and I somehow can imagine having a scene with
HD&L telling their parents "Look, Unca Donald did take care of us, you
didn't, so we prefer to stay with him. Sorry...") Than agian "The Simpsons"
didn't had a problem showing a story of Homers Mother abanding him and
returning, withouth making it too sad, so I wonder if ther could be a way
to do somthing similar in a duck story... I seen some stories that had some
very totchy/sad moments and where done pretty well... There was this
Italian story where one of HD&L gets lost during a scubadiving mission, and
Donald and two othe boys think his dead, and emotions where shown In a great
way, without making it to sad for kids, or another story where Child servise
try to take HD&L away from Donald, and was handle in a very mature way...
Anny way, I truly don't see a problem with a HD&L parents returns, and I
don't see how it would ruin the Duck-continuity...
[Actually many writers don't care about continuity in Duck-univers set by
Carl Barks... Two days ago I read a story where Scrooge wanted to buy a
castle in Scotland beacose he NEVER had one... Oh, well...]

"Lahdee Dah" sounds a bit like a anaram for "Della"... Or I just got
