Lynn's Comments: I think I've said before that my mother was the ultimate "home remedy queen". If any of us was under the weather, we'd run for cover knowing--if the illness didn't do us in, her potions, unguents and cures certainly would. What I find distressing now is the ever increasing and bewildering choices we have to make when trying to find any over-the-counter pain relief. It immediately makes me want to go back to the remedies my mom pulled out of her hat!
Lynn's Comments: Once again, I received letters from folks who thought the mere suggestion of an “obscene phone call” might rattle the minds of my young readers. I now wonder how much the kids of today have already observed, experienced, and come to terms with by the time they are reading the funny pages!
Lynn's Comments: This was a true story. I did post notes to the family in lieu of nagging…and the notes worked!
Lynn's Comments: My husband said this, and it was a good thing. I was too miserable to write and I needed some good material!
Lynn's Comments: This happened! When my well-meaning kids decided to make mac and cheese for dinner, they put on the macaroni without thinking to stir it. The result was a block of pasta that came out on the spoon like this. A good laugh means nothing is wasted. And, we had a dog.
Lynn's Comments: This was a subject I really wanted to cover. I’d been in this situation myself and had listened to friends as they discussed their own marriage problems with me.
