    The same thing my Mom said when I traveled to Maryland by myself when I was thirteen

    I was 23 when I went to the Big Island of Hawai‘i by myself… I took myself to the train station from Lewis County to Clark County, Washington (Dad had to work) and either my stepmother-to-be or a cousin took me to the airport in Portland, Oregon.

    Oh, my mom probably thought the same thing the last time she saw me leaving. I was 56.

    My two kids will always be my little boy and girl. She is 30 and he is 25. You always love them and worry about them.

    We’ll always be our parent’s baby. Very touching.

    If you look at the strips where Elly is dressing, she always wears a bra. Some of us are just naturally droopy, even with support.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    I used this same punch line again years later, and even made it the title of a collection book. You’d think I’d remember every gag and not use it again, but sometimes I slipped up!

    -
    The longer a story goes along the harder it is not to repeat something. This went on for 20 years 365 days a year. It is amazing if she only repeated a few gags.

    Where is the evidence she is braless? Don’t see them, she just has much to carry, some women have that to contend with.

    What Lynn forgot to mention here is while Elly was thinking of how Michael had grown, John was shallowly thinking of nothing but how Michael could damage his SPORTS CAR, so he could have cared less about Michael!
