    Lynn Johnston’s second husband, was a DDS, not an MD. Dental care is private in Canada, so it is unclear how being married to a dentist would make her part of the nomenklatura.

    It was a confusing Lynn’s notes. Seems that Lynn Johnston was in her dream world of her fantasy family and confused it with her real family.

    no punishment for eating all that crap before dinner? Sounds like no punishment is needed, as he has been caught red-handed. He is furtively cleaning up, kind of like a kid who has been caught smoking in a high school bathroom who helplessly tries to cover his tracks by flushing the cigarette down the toilet and fanning the air. As for eating the junk food, the punishment has already been done: Michael gets diabetes!

    Since it is John’s office and John paid the subscription fees, then it is John who has title, use, control and freedom to dispose, not Elly. She can provide suggestions, but ultimately it is John’s decision to make.

    Sounds like foreign aid. Most of it is pocketed by dictators in Third World countries. Very little foreign aid actually aids those who need it. Of course, there is a difference between that and Goodwill. If you decide not to donate anything, the Goodwill CEO cannot impose a lien on your property nor have you arrested! :)

    That whole idea of John teasing Elly has largely gone away by now. However, the fat jokes have not. Those were recycled with Michael becoming a know-it-all smartalec and telling his mother she was fat.

    When I was a kid, one of my neighborhood friends broke the windows on his parents’ house playing ball. He was made to pay for it through finding whatever money he could. A month or so later, I went to his birthday party where he opened up his presents. Mine was a card with a $5 bill. He told me “Hey, thanks a lot!” Immediately afterwards his mom grabbed the cash and said “And this will go to the cost of the window!” I thought that was kind of scuzzy of her to do in the company of others. I do not endorse window breaking, of course, but couldn’t she wait until he party was over to do her interception? At least I am glad I helped him pay off the debt.

    Sounds like a joke on the Simpsons where they sent the dog to obedience school:
    Bart: Sit! Sit!
    Dog walks away while the teacher comes by
    Bart: Take a walk! Play with the other dogs! to teacher As you can see, he obeys all my commands.
