Lynn's Comments: My husband really was happiest when he was in his workshop. No matter what was going on around him, his hobbies and his various projects kept him focused and content. If you wanted to spend time with him, the workshop was the place to be. Katie learned this at a very young age, which is why she can now fix or make just about anything!
Lynn's Comments: I recently found a birthday card I’d made for my mother. She'd saved it in a photo album, something I hadn't opened for years. I had forgotten about the card. It said, "When you're very mad at me, you're awful for a mother, But even if I had a choice, I wouldn't want another." I think I was 8 when I made the card. She and I didn't get along well and I wondered why she’d kept it. I think I was trying to rewrite history here. The strip often had a sweetness to it that wasn't part of my own childhood experience.
Lynn's Comments: This punch line is much like the ending I gave to the Mother's Day Sunday page. Just goes to show you two things: 1) I never checked to see what I'd done on Mother's Day, and 2) When you're on a deadline, you'll sometimes take the first idea that comes into your head and draw it up. This must have been one of those first ideas!
Lynn's Comments: This scenario dates back to the days when my brother and I lived at home. Dad saw my brother washing his car and was delighted until Al, preparing for a date, asked for the keys!
Lynn's Comments: This is another true story told to me by a friend who just wanted sympathy. He got laughs instead.
