Lynn's Comments: This is that awful, unbelievable situation when a parent leaves a baby in a car. I've done it, and remembered before it was a problem...but I sure understand how a tragedy can happen.
Lynn's Comments: After working on the farm, I came to realize how knowledgeable farmers have to be. Not only do they have to know about planting and harvesting and markets, but they have to be able to look after sick animals, fix all kinds of machinery and all on a few hours of sleep.
Lynn's Comments: This is from a summer I spent in Quebec. I was 16 and had gone to Montreal to learn French and to help my Aunt with my young cousins. I wrote letters to the "boy I left behind," and he never wrote back to me. I was heartbroken. Just one letter would have been nice. He didn't have to say anything personal...just "Hi" and I would have been thrilled.
Lynn's Comments: Not being good at writing would have been a fair excuse for most kids, but the boy I liked could write like a pro!
Lynn's Comments: I allowed my letter problem to ruin some otherwise great days. Looking back, I wish I’d enjoyed the wonderful time I was having—or should have been having!
Lynn's Comments: This is another strip done for the sheer joy of drawing the dog. Panel 6 is my favourite!
Lynn's Comments: When I got home from my summer in Quebec, I wanted to confront the errant boyfriend and ask why he hadn't written. I was too cranky to call, so I waited until school started again.
Lynn's Comments: This was the first time I let readers know that Michael was going to be a writer. It was the first time I knew as well!
Lynn's Comments: My boyfriend had all kinds of excuses for not writing to me that summer. He even said he'd write something appropriate and give me a letter then and there. But he never wrote me a letter. Suddenly, the crush was gone and when I looked at him, I couldn’t see what it was that had made me so crazy about him in the first place.
Lynn's Comments: A strip like this gave my brain a nice jog. Coming up with the overrated advertising info was a hoot!
Lynn's Comments: I was getting close to 40 here and starting to worry about the decline. Now, at 72, I think someone who's 40 is a kid!
Lynn's Comments: I was never healthier or in better shape than I was when I was slugging kids around, digging in the garden, and doing housework.
Lynn's Comments: Hmmmm...this is not one of my best punch lines...
