Lynn's Comments: My parents never did sell their house and move to a smaller place. By the time they were thinking of this, Mom was too sick to move and Dad wanted her to stay in their old, familiar surroundings. What happened in the strip is what should have happened; how their last years should have been. I was able to hold onto both of them just a little longer in my make-believe comic strip world.

Lynn's Comments: Our small dog, Willy, loved everyone. The only time he'd bark with any kind of viciousness was when he saw the snow plow. He would chase it down our lane, believing for all the world that he had saved us from a monster.

Lynn's Comments: Looking at these last 2 days worth of strips, I see that I've used the word "ready" 7 times. If I was checking the work of a student, I'd point this out right away as an error in the script!

Lynn's Comments: When I was a kid, I loved to teach my younger brother to do stuff our mom would object to. For example, I got him to thump back and forth in his stroller so it was harder to push, and I showed him how to bite the bottom off his ice cream cone so the ice cream would drip through. I don't know why I did these things. The results didn't go well for either of us.
