Lynn's Comments: My cousin Bob is married to Lois. It was fun to mention them and then wait for the response. I did this quite often, and the gesture was always well received.
Lynn's Comments: The name Allyson Creemore wasn't for anyone specific...I just liked the way the name sounded.
Lynn's Comments: In the second panel, I should have written: "She turns, she looks at you..." because as it is, it ruins the punchline. NOW I can see the mistake!
Lynn's Comments: My little grandson recently asked his mother, "instead of visiting Santa at the mall, why don’t we order our presents online?" Ryan was only 5. Times sure are changing!
Lynn's Comments: Gordon was a character I really enjoyed working with. He was open and honest and vulnerable. Right from the start I wanted him to win.
Lynn's Comments: My first movie date was with Terry Manning. Terry lived on 4th Street, just a fast walk down the lane from my house on 5th. We went to see "Tarzan" with Johnny Weissmuller. We were in grade 4.
Lynn's Comments: My mother-in-law had an enormous freezer. When the family moved from Manitoba to Ontario, we had to defrost many years worth of baking and fish and frozen leftovers. Some of the pies had dates on them from 10 years past or more. It was like an archaeological dig! After this funny experience, I decided I'd never have a big freezer of my own.
Lynn's Comments: Friends of mine, who had little girls, would give me the fancy dresses their kids had grown out of. I'd look after them and pass them on. These lovely dresses never wore out they just went to the next baby who fit into them. Some of these fancy duds must still be in circulation!
Lynn's Comments: I couldn't resist this punch line. Word play made my strip almost impossible to translate into other languages. Foreign papers either had to make a direct translation or change the dialogue completely! The best translators were often cartoonists themselves!
