Today, we see what it is that fails to stop the ball: a small child terrified of softballs winging straight at her head.

(Strip Number 4808, Original Publication Date, 2 June 1987)

Panel 1: Now that we're at the park, we find Lizzie being told to catch a fly ball that's coming straight at her.

Panel 2: She focuses on the ball as it heads towards her.

Panel 3: At the last second, she shields herself with her glove because she's terrified of the missile that's about to take her head clean off.

Panel 4: She ducks away from the Ball Of Hitting Her In The Face And Hurting FOREVER!!! and thus, it falls into the dirt.

Summary: We're probably going to get a Little Lindy show about Lynn's own tendency to freeze and choke and die when playing horrible team sports of hurting and eternal pain and bleeding and mess and so on and so forth.

Coming soon to a province near me.

One of the latest newsletter entries is a reminder that my home province is one of the the stops on what Lynn wants to think of as her farewell to maintaining a pulse tour.

- There is no, repeat NO, letter 'K' in the word 'Fredericton'. Never has been, never will be. (I realize I come across as a dick but seeing it misspelled is as annoying as the prospect of someone pronouncing Tucson the way it's spelled.)

- I hope that when Terry Seguin of CBC Fredericton's Information Morning interviews Lynn, he's more on the ball than the last two lackluster people.
