Lynn's Comments: I did this strip to address the readers who insisted I change Elly’s hairstyle. As one of the main characters in the strip, I felt I had to keep her looking relatively the same. Over the years, she sported a pony tail, a bun, and at one time, I "gave" her a perm. Still, the part-in-the-middle-and-tied -back-look was her signature and I didn't want to alter it. The frump-look was firm. This strip let the critics know that I was aware of their hatred for the hairstyle...but I wasn't about to change it!
