Lynn's Comments: This was the kind of magic my dad would have performed. He was just like that.
Lynn's Comments: Whenever I see those ads on TV about muscle pain, I immediately think about how I feel the day after I've exercised. Stiff, sore, aching. I know I deserve the way I feel--that's it's evidence of my sloth; it's my body telling me it's getting slack. Things are beginning to atrophy. This health alert worries me and I resolve to do more in the way of moving about. I promise to eat less, walk more, and to get to a gym at least once a year!
Lynn's Comments: I guess aerobics was one of the first sort of "dancercise" workouts designed to coerce exercise-resistant pork-butts like me to get up and move. I did go to the YMCA here and sign on for one aerobics class, but, WHOA! .... It was such hard work! Still, in a group setting like this, you're far more likely to put in some effort. The downside of doing aerobics at home... is being caught in the act by someone with a lethal sense of humour.
Lynn's Comments: I can't add anything to this punch line--other than to say that nothing has changed: the day I decide to get dressed late and to wear no makeup, is the day that all the delivery guys show up! This is something I hope a good iPhone application will someday eradicate.
Lynn's Comments: This strip makes me laugh, now. When I drew it, I was YOUNG. At this stage of my life, I have earned the right (and the wrinkles) to complain!
Lynn's Comments: Curlers had gone out of style along with the housedress, but Elly occasionally sported them. Curlers and gobs of face cream were a cartoon cliche. Television sit-coms and comic strips often used these props to make a woman look her most unattractive. Today, comedy has to rely on other props...and fortunately, the shapeless housecoat is still first choice in comfortable morning garb. The good thing is that husbands look bad in them too!
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!
