    Elly’s insecurity as a mother does mirror Lynn Johnston’s. In an interview with her son, he recalled that when his true father ran off one day, his mother took it hard, in comparison to his maternal grandparents from the World War 2 generation who sailed through rough waters and were rewarded. The nuclear family environment in 1950s prosperity Lynn grew up in as a kid came crashin down when her husband did his impersonation of Obama’s deadbeat dad. As a result, she became overprotective of her son to the extent that if he stubbed his toe, she would cry. To be fair to Lynn, her situation is not unique, nor is her outlook. I have seen that with women in the Northern United States. New England seems to have this outlook that “things should be how they should be”, which is largely due to being spoiled from never been ruined by war, unlike the Southern United States which was devastated (think of Atlanta burning down). I have preferred dating girls from the South as they are emotionally stronger than those from the North, not to mention prettier!

    Warning to Michael: Christmas is apprproaching fast. Unless you are fine with a lump of coal, recommend you abide by the 10 Commandments, especially “Honor your mother and father”.

    Don’t bend over Michael. Your curly pink tail shows!

    Is the public library still in use today? Whenever I go all I see is netsurfing, girls reading Seventeen or aging hipsters too cheap to get their own subscription to Utne reader. It is rare to see a kid checking out a copy of Moby Dick or Treasure Island.

    Scrooge does not waste energy. He only uses what he needs and does not run up his gaslight bills. It is expected the green movement will praise Scrooge in coming years.

    Elly’s neighbor is either a pig or out to lunch. Not sure about her being a bad mother, but she sure is a lousy friend. Your kids make the mess, your kids clean it up, or you. In extreme cases hire the staff of a car wash for their deluxe package, outside and inside of the car. She did not even so much as apologize, simply having the attitude that she can make everyone lighten up with a lousy joke.

    By saying “eschew” she contradicted her own statement. Rather clear she used a word she did not know.
    We know Elly is a dropout, but did Lynn finish college? Or did she even go?

    Maybe Farley was better behaved after he got neutered, which has been noticed in many dogs, less aggressive behavior.

    Farley will be noticed when it is time for his neutering.
