Lynn's Comments: Letters came from folks who really did not understand this gag. I'd hoped that the bulge in Elly's stomach would convey the message. I mean...wasn't it obvious that she was indeed putting "enough into it?" My editor seemed to understand, as did my mother-in-law. (I passed everything by her because there were times she didn't get an elephant joke. If Ruth didn't get a gag, I knew I was going to have to rework it!) Still, I had complaints that this punchline didn't make sense. I'll leave it with you. Did you get it??!!
Lynn's Comments: I was in the best shape ever when I lived in Lynn Lake. The community centre gym was a block away, I walked everywhere, and I was constantly carrying the kids around. There were times when I would carry Katie on my back in a carrier and have Aaron on my hip at the same time. These days, I'm lucky if I can heave a small piece of luggage into an overhead bin!
Lynn's Comments: Michael Jackson was a genius. His original lyrics, music, and dance style set the bar. The only music video I ever bought, and watched over and over again, was "Thriller."
