2016 06: Phil and Georgia Get Married: Browse The Strips


Monday, June 13, 2016

Lynn's Comments: My mother did make my daughter a lovely smocked dress to wear at my brother and his wife's wedding. I kept this sweet memento until my granddaughter was big enough to wear it, and when she put it on, it looked old-fashioned and unattractive. I gave this lovely handmade dress to the Salvation Army in the hope that someone out there would appreciate all the work that went into it. I didn't feel guilty. Very fortunately, that's what my mom would have done, too.

Lynn's Comments: One of my husband's favourite lines was, "It's best to be honest. And, once you've faked honesty, you've got it made!"

Lynn's Comments: This happened--but it was my dad who was caught smoking on the porch. He was dying of lung cancer at the time.

Lynn's Comments: I think there's a play out there somewhere called, "I Love You, You're Perfect. Now Change." Does anyone know anything about this? Is it still running somewhere? I thought it was the best title, but never got to see the play!

Lynn's Comments: Katie was a flower girl in my brother's wedding. My mom spent days making her dress--the front was beautifully smocked by hand.

Lynn's Comments: This is another true story, which went word for word into the strip. It belongs to my friends, Sandy and Kevin O'Grady. Kevin actually did this and they still laugh about it today.

Lynn's Comments: In Kevin's case, he meant to go to the dump, but an open dumpster in a city lane was an easier repository. What he did was toss in his car keys. I didn't know how to draw this accurately. It was easier to show his watch go flying into the bin.

Lynn's Comments: Meanwhile, Sandy was at the wedding wondering where Kevin had gone. How long could it take to dispose of a bag of garbage?

Lynn's Comments: [Continued from last month:] Sandy sat in the pew and watched the wedding ceremony--worried and angry. Where could Kevin be?

Lynn's Comments: He described the dumpster as being behind a restaurant and grocery store. Wet and decaying vegetables lay in a mucky stew on the bottom. He had to climb in, wearing his best clothes, and dig around in the stinking mess to find his car keys. If it had been a watch, he might have just let it go! Car keys were essential!

Lynn's Comments: Within the story of the dumpster, I had to blend the serious commitment of Phil and Georgia's wedding. This kind of challenge made writing and drawing the strip pure fun.

Lynn's Comments: Kevin O'Grady spent the entire day aware of how badly he smelled of the dumpster. If things like this weren't so funny, we'd never get through life!

Lynn's Comments: My daughter, Katie and her husband, Lane, were married under a tree at English Bay in Vancouver. There were four of us in attendance, thus avoiding the dreaded wedding speech!

Lynn's Comments: Again, this really happened. When my first husband and I left our wedding reception, we found that his friends had stuffed our car with newspaper. Balls of it were tightly jammed everywhere. Before we could get in, we had to remove it all and find a place to put it. Our hands were filthy and our mood was mean. What we didn't expect was that the dust from the newsprint was everywhere, and when we got out of the car, my white wedding outfit was covered in it. Maybe they thought the prank was funny, but to this day, I'd still like to tell off the guys who did it!
