    @gmartin007 Ellie had two pregnancies & two childbirths to go through. So why does she have to have the more invasive surgery if John is the one who says no to a third child????

    Paul Jones, your remarks are abit hate-filled. Lighten up and enjoy the cartoon and not make ugly comments.

    Seems they may be planning to change the storyline, if John gets the old snip, there will be no April.

    I like April. A product of imagination. I’d also like to live in P.E.R.N.

    Actualy Paul Jones is right. I didn’t start reading until after Farley died. I am amazed how bitter about her life Elly comes across in these early comics.

    OMG! Silverpearl! ! I want to live on PERN, too! Under threadfree skys, of course. Ann is writting a new book. Todd has a new one coming out, too, so watch for them.

    pearlandpeach…don’t be such a board mommie. I like to read all the comments, and if they are THAT bad they will get flagged.

    John’s snip would = in office visit, 4 stitches, 1 week of no heavy lifting & a $40 copay. Elly’s snip would = Inpatient hospital procedure under general anesthesia, many more stitches (No laproscopy back then), borrowing her mom for several weeks to handle the household while she recovers, oh yeah, and paying an exorbitant deductable for surgery. Probably well over $5000 in those days. Please try to read this through the filter of the era with sympathy for the plight of the voiceless housewife. Now that I am she, I have more sympathy. Plus this comic makes me laugh out loud.

    I know some of you think that Elly comes across as bitter about her life, but I just see it as Lynn’s way of getting her joke of the day across. It has to be funny, right?

    What’s PERN?

    It’s not very surprising that a housewife who spends almost all her time looking after small children is unhappy, even bitter. That’s how the last wave of feminism got started (in the 1960’s) - with women realizing that they were not satisfied with their lives, and there had to be more than this.
