The Comic Art of Lynn Johnston Part XII – Aaron Arrives, Doug Leaves

To recap, the chronology as I understand it is this:

1968 – Lynn and Doug move to Dundas, Ontario. Doug works at CHCH-TV. Lynn fails to get a job in animation, but instead takes a job at McMaster University and does freelance work on the side.
1970 – Rod Johnston graduates from Ryerson with his degree in Radio/TV and begins work as a props guy at CHCH-TV. Lynn admits she likes Rod. Lynn also admits that she hangs around CHCH-TV to help out, which would give her time to meet Rod.
1972 – Farley is purchased. Lynn wants a baby. Doug does not. They fight about having the baby. After Lynn leaves for Vancouver, finds an apartment and a job, Doug brings her home after agreeing to be a good father. Thanks to the trip to Vancouver, Lynn loses her job at McMaster. (In the meantime, Rod Johnston leaves CHCH-TV and goes back to school at no less than McMaster University to get his Bachelor of Science degree that will allow him to apply to dental school.)

We will discuss what happens next after the cut.
