Lynn's Comments: Throughout this series, I received advice from vets and individuals on how to train my dog to bark when he wanted to come in and to refrain from barking at inappropriate times. The result was that, except for when the snowplow came, he never barked at all.

Lynn's Comments: As the series about Mike's coming home for the summer continued, the letters asking me to remove Michael's beard became adamant. I knew he looked scruffy, but it had to happen. A guy has to grow a beard—just to see what it's like! I waited an appropriately long time before I gave in.

Lynn's Comments: I said in a previous note that the only thing my dog would bark at was the snow plow. I was wrong. He would also bark at squirrels. He’d stand at the porch window and wait for them to come to the bird feeder and then he’d bark like crazy. If I let him out, he’d run after them—with no hope at all of ever catching one. Eventually, this routine was as much fun for the squirrels as it was for the dog. They knew which window he would come to and which door he’d be coming from, and they’d taunt him until he was desperate. He made a lot of noise, but it didn’t bother anyone but me. It’s a good thing we lived waaaay out in the country!

Lynn's Comments: When I was working at the medical school, one of the artists had been doing a detailed illustration of a head with a cutaway section that exposed the brain, neck and oral cavity. I crawled into his studio, and when he wasn’t looking, put my head (like April is doing here) on his drafting table. I had never before heard a man scream like that!

Lynn's Comments: My dad was a watchmaker. One of our favourite stories was "The Noisy Clock Shop" by Jean Horton Berg. I recently found it again in a second hand shop— an original "Wonder Book!" Mr. Winky was the main character. I got the title of the book wrong here, but I sure remembered the story!

Lynn's Comments: These kinds of calls did happen. In the small town where we lived in Northern Manitoba, everyone knew where we lived and what our home phone number was. It was a few minute walk to the dental clinic, so folks expected my husband to be able to see them at any time—no matter how inconvenient it was. It wasn’t until the "new dentist" aura wore off that he had the nerve to say, "Take two aspirin and all me in the morning!"
