Lynn's Comments: When we were kids, a friend broke his leg while roller skating. The thing we all thought about, however, was how lucky he was to ride in an ambulance!
Lynn's Comments: My little grandson recently asked his mother, "instead of visiting Santa at the mall, why don’t we order our presents online?" Ryan was only 5. Times sure are changing!
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: This Sunday was the result of a "what if" scenario. I was in a department store change booth trying on bathing suits with a growing sense of doom. Everything seemed designed to accentuate my worst assets. My daughter was old enough to know not to escape and lead me on a chase through a busy mall, but the thought crossed my mind. What if I had to run out in public wearing the disastrous suit I was struggling into? This idea made its way onto the Sunday page, and the result was a flood of letters from other moms similarly disgusted by the cruel offerings foisted on us by bathing suit manufacturers.
