    Lynn’s Notes:

    This kind of teasing came from my dad who loved to twist fairy tales and embellish stories. Easter was a good time for story-telling. My brother and I looked forward to Easter as soon as Christmas was over.

    We didn’t have a lot of commercial decorative stuff when I was small, so we made our own. Every Easter, dad would find the right sized cardboard box. This we would decorate with crepe paper, (remember that?) drawings, ribbons and tulle. Whatever we could find went onto the box to make it attractive to the E. bunny: a nest for the goodies he’d bring! The decorated box would be left in the living room the night before and on Easter morning, it would be filled with things like big chocolate bunnies, fluffy pom-pom chicks, jelly beans and a few small toys. After we went through the bunny box, my brother and I would search the house for coloured hard-boiled eggs — and there was always one in the bathtub plug hole.

    Great memories come from such simple things. This year, my grand daughter is old enough to make a bunny box…and I have one, just the right size!

    Seriously, cake as a bread substitute? I knew about the catsup, but I’ve never heard that before. Wish I were surprised.

    Except that she bought the rest of the unsold items, thus giving a lot more money to the school. Plus having spent hours baking and selling.

    Seriously, did you misunderstand me???? Enjoy the laugh of today’s strip! Sheesh.

    People, cartoonists have just been murdered by ignorant and intolerant assassins and you’re rabbiting on about gender identity issues you absolutely don’t understand and hating on a fictional woman. Get a grip and enjoy the laugh – heaven knows we need it.

    Not at all. One often feels low and dull and even unattractive after a break-up. A makeover is just the thing to brighten things up.

    Trolls also don’t get that budgets for public libraries are constantly shrinking and were doing so even then. And that Elly is criticizing the municipality, not her boss.

    Hm. Last I checked, pallets are made of straw and unisex. A palette is a range of colours – and it’s only nonsensical notions that genderise them. Again, that’s last I checked.

    Yes, bring on industrial hemp! Paper, clothing, even heating oil – brilliant stuff.

    Not worried at all! Especially if you enlarge it, you can see she’s smiling. She’s happy, she’s stunned, she’s in that glorious, sleepless, totally loved-up mode. Yay, Joanie!
