Panel 1: Wonder why everyone's so spread out. And why the guest of honor is in a corner of the frame, almost with her back to the viewer.
Panel 2: She's been a big help? I thought there wasn't much of anything to do. And there Lynn goes with the dashes at the beginning of a sentence again. And Danny's beard looks like a panel glued to his face.
Panel 3: ...And ellipses at the beginning of a sentence! Argh! And as far as the animals, Lynn did say in "Lives Behind the Lines", which was published before April started playing guitar, that April liked collecting pets, and caring for them, and that this might lead her to being a vet. I did sort of wonder why she let that drop.
Panel 4: April...It was a best-selling book, and then a movie. Both produced within your lifetime, so it's not like only a fogey would know what a horse whisperer is. I can understand not having read or seen either of them, but I should think anyone as ultra-sophisticated as you would get the reference.
Panel 5: And more crude hick humor. Bwah. Only, not.
