Lynn's Comments: I learned to swim by trying to sit on the bottom of the community pool.
Lynn's Comments: One of the best things about summer camp for me was the bus ride there and back. The laughter, the singing, eating damp sandwiches (flattened in waxed paper bundles), hanging onto best friends who were strangers a week ago—what fun that was. After 65 years, the smell and the sounds of that long bus ride can be conjured up as if it all happened yesterday. Summer camp. It's a wonderful rite of passage.
Lynn's Comments: These are all names from my elementary school days. Luccia (I spelled her name incorrectly in the strip), Ruby and Laurel are still good friends today. When we get together, we all see each other as being much the same as we were in grades one and two and all the way through high school. What a joy it is to see them now!
