Lynn's Comments: There was a song: "June is busting out all over" and I think it came from a big Broadway musical. Someone out there will tell me! Anyway--a neighbour of ours (whose name was June) had told my mom, in secret, that she was expecting. Mom was asked to keep it quiet until June knew for sure. In a weak moment, mom told my dad--who was always thinking of puns, gags and ways to crack people up. When dad came upon my mom and her friend talking over the fence, he started to sing "June is busting out all over" and the look on the ladies' faces was a cartoon waiting to be drawn. Both had their mouths open in that tense little "O" of surprise. Dad was in the doghouse until June was sure of her condition. All was forgiven and baby Alex busted out--red and healthy six months later.
Lynn's Comments: I didn't get a lot of laughs out of this one. Gardeners take their plants (and their croci) very seriously.
Lynn's Comments: This reminds me...I have to get my tires changed!
Lynn's Comments: These were real Ontario winters, and when you draw strips like this you really have to make the audience feel those cold, wet, rainy days.
