Lynn's Comments: I rather liked this one. Not for the gag--I just wanted to use the name, "Nedwitt."
Lynn's Comments: The North Bay Capitol Centre was almost torn down but was saved by a group of very determined people. After its restoration, it became something the politicians liked to point out as the "jewel in the crown."
Lynn's Comments: Both Aaron and Katie took part in the annual Lynn Lake ice show. It was a huge amount of work. The whole town took part. We made do with whatever we could find in this isolated place; old boards, leftover paint, second hand clothes, mismatched fabrics, and the result was spectacular. With next to nothing for a budget and everything done by hand, the annual ice show was a sold-out affair—a wonderful display of northern talent and ingenuity.
Lynn's Comments: For many years I went on book tours, which took me to major cities all over the US and Canada. When I was invited to go to New York by "People Magazine," I asked my mother-in-law, Ruth, if she'd like to come. My husband and "Grandpa" took care of the kids for the 3 days we were away. It was the first time Ruth and I had travelled together, and I wanted her trip to be the best it could be. The one Broadway show I wanted her to see was "A Chorus Line." I had seen it twice before and had enjoyed it so much I wanted to see it again. All through the show Ruth kept looking at her watch. When the show ended and the curtain fell, I was annoyed with her. Thinking she had disliked the show, I asked why she kept checking her watch. With eyes full of tears, she looked at me and said, "I didn't want it to end!"
