Lynn's Comments: My brother and I were expert teases. We savoured every "gotcha" and every "Aaaughh!!!!" We added them up, we made sure we were even. I don't think we stopped until we were in our twenties!

Lynn's Comments: This really happened, but it was me who waited in the snow for the garbage truck. It took awhile to realize I was out there on the wrong day!

Lynn's Comments: After all the care we put into choosing their food, a dog usually prefers garbage. A garbage-flavoured kibble might be something to consider.

Lynn's Comments: I confess…I have purchased my share of dumb, gross, stupid and downright insulting greeting cards. My philosophy is: "If it’s funny, it’s fine."

Lynn's Comments: I remember being a go-between for a girlfriend and the guy she liked. I remember wondering what in the world she saw in him. We were in third grade and already she was talking about marriage. With memories like this, I don't dismiss the thoughts and feelings of "little kids." You're never too young or too old to fall in love!

Lynn's Comments: When the "Mike and Martha" series was running for the first time, my son was being asked at school who the heck Martha was. He told everyone there was no Martha and that his mother had just made her up. Nobody believed him—even though they were with him every day and could see that Martha didn't exist. Strange how closely my kids were compared to the kids in the strip—even though I had changed their ages, their names and their circumstances.

Lynn's Comments: This is a story from my past. I babysat our neighbour’s four girls. They were a real challenge. I was seriously outnumbered and had to improvise my way through the hours they were in my care. I truly earned the few bucks I was paid.

Lynn's Comments: The other punchline I had for this strip was the kid yelling in the last panel: "Don't touch me!" That idea has been done quite a lot, so I had the assistant fall asleep instead. This wasn't one of my best Sunday pages, but when you're on a deadline, you sometimes turn in something you're not crazy about. Here, I felt that the drawing was sufficiently well done to carry the strip, but when it came out in the paper, I wished I’d given it another ending!
