Lynn's Comments: When I did workshops, I'd ask the class to come up with the written sounds for things like lawn mowers, snoring or the flushing of a toilet. Sometimes the sound effects alone were the best part of a strip.

Lynn's Comments: The name "Enjo" was for my 5th grade home economics teacher. She was great! The Enjo characters were based on a Japanese-Canadian family I knew in North Bay, Ontario. The scenes inside the Enjo house came from the Masuda's, as did some of the story line ideas. Asking for their help was both fun and educational.

Lynn's Comments: Around this time, I began to work with another graphic artist. Laura could easily duplicate my style, so with more time to do background details, the art soon became much more complicated. I would draw the strip in pencil, ink the characters, and give her the rest to do. Up until I retired from the strip, Laura became another right hand!

Lynn's Comments: There's a song in "A Chorus Line" where one of the dancers talks about a teacher who was cruel and menacing, and when he died, she felt nothing. This line just seared into my brain because it is so profound. How can a person you have loved to distraction become someone for whom you feel nothing? It's hard to imagine when you are in the throes of romance that you might, one day, feel nothing at all.

Lynn's Comments: The Patterson kids were now starting to have lives outside of the home. This meant adding new characters: friends, teachers and acquaintances—some of whom needed to be "fleshed out" and given substantial roles.

Lynn's Comments: A better punch line would have been if the woman on the left says, "Why do kids do that?" and the other one answers, "It's a mating call." Crafting the dialogue is important. I should have noticed this before I finished the strip. It would have been better as a Sunday page!

Lynn's Comments: When the name "The Bentwood Rockers" came to mind for a senior citizen's band, I laughed out loud. Some ideas come from "out there" somewhere. Cartoonists are forever looking up and saying, "Whoever you are...Thanks!"
