    Well, Wally and Joan HAVE been to France some story lines back. As for me, the farthest I’ve ever travelled from the U.S. was England; that was 2012 with only my brother. As for within the U.S., either Hawaii (Oahu 2001 with brother and parents or Big Island 2007 by myself) or maybe Boston or New York City (both in 1998 with parents and brother on a summer road trip).

    “Oh, those far away places with strange sounding names.”

    I, for one, will miss seeing Evie dealing with her daughters, and assorted grandchildren in her quite unique way. I know she isn’t going away permanently and there will be ‘strips’ with her in them(on the telephone) but she is a member of the family that I have gotten used to seeing on an almost daily basis. Have fun, Evie ! ! !

    Does anyone know if there is a full “background story” available somewhere for this strip? Like, is it Andy’s mom or dad who’s the girls’ sibling? What happened that he’s living with Joan and Wally? Max is Wally’s step-child but Lucy is his natural daughter. What happened to Val’s husband? Inquiring minds want to know!

    “Eh”? Why not add a few “aboots” and a couple of “y’knows”.

    I hope we can do that some day. I moved from Michigan to Canada 5 years ago, and we live in Ontario and like it, but I hope someday we can travel all over Canada.

    Canadians do not say aboot! It’s more like a-boat. And not every Canadian says “eh” very often, but those who say it, say it a lot.

    We went to Victoria, British Columbia, for a wedding in 2005. The only person I heard say “eh” was an airport worker in the terminal. The Canadians I saw did, however, conform to the stereotype of being super polite, including a man and his twelve-year-old son in an elevator.

    Went to Toronto for my 16th birthday to see the Queen. (Do the math – it was eons ago!). Also went to Chichester when my dad had a parish there, and on to Wales to do some research on the Rhys family tree. Would love to live in Wales!
