I haven’t seen Barbara Dale in several years. She lives in Baltimore, so we used to get together when I lived in Northern Virginia. I know what she is doing here. Elisabeth Sparring (nee Engstrand) told me once that if you are a true lady, your fist is so small you can put it in your mouth. Elisabeth couldn’t do it. She should take lessons from Barbara Dale. Elisabeth Is married to Peter Sparring, my first comic book publisher in Sweden. We’re still in touch.
I think that Rick Kirkman and I might be related. There are Kirkmans in my family tree. He’s a personal friend.
Of course Lynn Johnston is a real sweetheart. She said she might come visit us this winter. They’ve started publishing For Better of for Worse from the beginning. Her work was always so very popular.
