    Here is my prediction. They will have the party and Jon will try to scare them. I recall this storyline from before the restart.

    LOL!! It’s a hard day when you figure out what you’ve turned into. :-)
    I’m one now and although I think I’m still the hip, cool person from my college days, I’m happy with who I am now.

    I’m middle aged, an English teacher, I live alone with 2 cats. So last month I decided to just jump right off the stereotype cliff and joined a knitting circle.

    Why is it tacky? So judgmental.

    I like the look of Anne’s face in panel 3; hot.

    Lynn Johnston, being 65 and all, may not, either. I had thought she was still retouching the story, but Wikipedia states that “as of July 12, 2010, this practice was abandoned, and the syndicated strip now consists strictly of straight reprints of Johnston’s early 1980s-era work.”

    I thought I had read that she was retiring, but then her second husband dumped her, so she decided to keep at it, but went back to the beginning but with new strips, an alternative universe if you will.

    Wow do you ever have it wrong.
    First, Lynn “dumped” her second husband for infidelity, not the other way around.
    Second, she retired because she is physically unable to keep up with the demand for full-time cartooning.
    Third, she never stated she was doing an “alternate universe” type of thing. All she ever did was to add new strips to the old story lines in order to expand on them and retouch others to make them a bit more modern (computer instead of typewriter or higher prices on merchandise – that sort of thing). As Gokie5 said, she stopped doing even that as of July, 2010.
    Check out her website to see what she does these days to keep up with her fans.

    I had enjoyed reading her strip from the beginning but, now I am caught up to where Lizzie is the age she is now. Wish Lynn would not go into every little detail and just move along a bit.

    I just mean leave out her every day conversations with her neighbors and get on with the rest of the story lines.

    The real story, especially for the moms, is having good friends.

    Knitting circle……what is that a euphemism for?
