Lynn's Comments: This comment was from an encounter I had with one of the people I met at "Wheelchair Rugby." I learned that it's rude for an able-bodied person to lean or sit on a wheelchair while talking to the occupant because the chair is effectively part of the user's body. I also learned that sitting down to talk to someone who is in a chair is a sign of respect and consideration. These are things I should have known instinctively, but did not. This was a wonderful education!
Lynn's Comments: I got a letter telling me I should have written "whomever" in the first panel. Maybe that's grammatically correct, but...it’s just not the way we actually talk!
Lynn's Comments: My husband was a serious model railroader. After a while, I understood the vocabulary and the methods for creating good tracks and dioramas, but I never understood the passion.
Lynn's Comments: The first snowfall each year in Lynn Lake, Manitoba came with very low temperatures. I had never in my life experienced such cold. We bundled ourselves up in parkas, snow pants, hats and scarves, and the way we (friends and family) recognized each other was by the clothes we wore, the way we walked and where we were going!
Lynn's Comments: I had so much fun drawing the baby and the dog. I almost used them too much.
Lynn's Comments: It drove me crazy when my dad stirred his coffee like this. He also sipped with audible slurps—unaware of how awful it sounded. Dad has been gone for long time, now. I wish I could hear him stir his coffee again.
Lynn's Comments: This line was delivered by a dear friend—a high school teacher who was very good at her job. Sadly, she said that "parenting" took up more of her time than teaching did.
