    I see teddy is being used every night to keep Michael company. Good thing he brought him along…

    Duck, if you have been following Lynn’s comments at all, you will know that most of the quips and attitudes in this story arc are a reflection of Aaron’s solo trip to visit his own grandparents.

    Yeah it is a good thing or maybe Elly would’ve gotten rid of that along with his other stuff.

    I believe that in the second panel, the bunch of lines above Teddy’s head are supposed to represent a shadow on the pillow-bulge. The bulge is covering part of Michael’s hair. In the last panel, Teddy is facing slightly more outward, Michael must have shifted his head, and the pillow-bulge has thicker wrinkles. Teddy’s forehead seam is showing, too. Oh, boy – Michael’s hairline has receded, and he has developed a somewhat narrow bang in the middle of his forehead. Who knows what’s going on?

    Granma’s hand brushed Michael’s hair back and hair never stays back!

    The House I grew up in was always home until my mother died. Then it was just a big empty house with a lot of memories.

    I can see him missing John and maybe Lizzie, but ELLY!? What child would miss that bossy, judgemental witch!?

    You don’t want to advertise that. That will just encourage unfit mothers to produce as many babies as humanly possible with no thought to feeding, clothing and sheltering them.

    “It’s interesting how little Michael is smart enough to understand that “homesick” means you miss your home, but doesn’t understand that home means more than just your house. "
    -——————————
    For my parents, the home was only the house. They fought like dogs over a stupid house. They both grew up in shacks.

    In the original, uncolored version, Michael’s eyebrows are visible in panel 2 just like in 3. The colorist has interpreted the eyebrows as a hairline.
