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!
