"We must be having fun" is something we say all the time, when we realize the date or a deadline coming up faster than we expect. My favourite season is fall too. Only here in northern Alberta we sometimes call it "thud", because we can go directly into winter. Folks reading the strip should keep in mind that 1. kids don't come with instructions and that we do the best we can. And 2. Sadly things have changed in the past thirty years, not always for the better as far allowing children to go out and play, exercise their own organizational skills, and to use their imaginations. Everything now is organized into teams, timetables and organizations and everything seems to be a competition. Our childhood may not have been as safe, but we sure had fun! FBOW is my daily morning fix! (Well, that and a cup of tea). Lyn captures the age of innocence of children and bewilderment of parents.
VickiBAfter reading about your friendship with Phyliss Diller, Lynn, I just want to say thank you for sharing that. I loved Phyliss Dillers humour, and I felt a real sense of loss at her passing. Like you, I watched her on Ed Sullivan and later, whenever she did appearances or guest shots on the late shows. Your news bites entry humanized her a little more for me and I enjoyed your story very much. I think she would have been touched by your sentiments. Kind regards.
Sandy in CoquitlamThank you for your memmory of Phyillis Diller. RIP.
Rene Lake Charles, LA USAWow! 55 hours worth of work for us to spend 10 seconds per comic strip reading it. Comic strip writers are a tremendous talent. They are artistic, funny, cleaver, smart, witty. The list goes on. Perhaps comic strip writers should take over the US government!
