Lynn's Comments: One more thing that really happened. I began to think my kids and husband owed a huge debt of gratitude to the strip...which happily ate up anything I could make into a daily or Sunday cartoon.

Lynn's Comments: The Fasts and the Bergans were friends in Lynn Lake; two of our favourite families. I loved to put the names of people we knew in the strip. It was a funny surprise. After the strip was published, their friends and family would contact them! It was a wonderful, continuing surprise.

Lynn's Comments: Looking at the furnishings in the last panel, I have no idea where in the house Elly and Mike are. I was pretty diligent, especially after we started doing the animated specials, in keeping the house architecturally real and placing everything in the same location. Strange.

Lynn's Comments: I read somewhere that a composer looked at birds perched on wires and saw a musical pattern in the way they positioned themselves. He then set these patterns to music. Anyone know if this is true?

Lynn's Comments: Well, this is interesting. I was using the vernacular of the day when I came up with this dialogue. I guess kids have been saying, “she went/he went” for a long time. No wonder it drives me crazy!!

Lynn's Comments: Any opportunity to draw Farley at his scruffy best, gave me a thrill. I loved to draw him eating and scratching and burping and being thoroughly, happily disgusting. Not only was he great fun to draw, I had to “get into the spirit of the dog” in order to draw him well. Being Farley for a few hours was a happy, funny and relaxing time...and I have to say, he really was my favourite character!

Lynn's Comments: I enjoyed coming up with “HLGFTZ” –the stammering sound Gordon is making as he’s forced to take the phone. Sometimes one small word made a strip worth sending in.

Lynn's Comments: The last time I went to a movie theatre, there was hardly anyone there. You didn't have to worry about finding a good seat…empty seats were everywhere. Sadly, movie theatres are another example of great gathering places that are slowly disappearing.
