Mary Worth 200

Do Ron Amalfi and Mary Worth have the audacity to actually DANCE while Donna rests in "PEAC" in the next room?

I'm glad they have come to grips with their grief, but I continue to identify more with the woman whose head is buried in her handkerchief - or is that simply a ghost puppet that she's appropriately brought to the funeral?

Either way, I'm completely torn up inside... for the last two days I've tried to come to terms, but my attempts have been futile. However, I think I know the solution. Tomorrow I leave for Chicago to spend the weekend at the luxurious Amalfi Hotel. Hopefully, I'll find some small means of saying my farewells and finding closure to it all. I will certainly blog about the trip!

How low can you stoop?! Hitting on a guy at his mother's funeral? Perhaps this is one of these new Singles Wakes I have heard so much about?

I am impressed that Rene Magritte was brought in as guest artist for the first panel. (Obscure and pompously self-satisfied reference to handkerchief girl)

It is also good to see that Clark Gable and Wanders both turned up to show their respects, and is that Lenin talking with Clark, no doubt banging on about the proletariat again...

Shandyowl... I think you are confused about my use of Wilbur Weston as an "avatar." I don't believe it's Wilbur at the wake, and I know it isn't me. First, I didn't know the funeral was this morning, so I missed it, and
second, I would never wear a lilac suit to a funeral.
Still, I admit there is a resemblance as you may see if I post photos from my upcoming stay at the Amalfi Hotel.

And here's another great example of a weeping woman with a handkerchief. Giella clearly ripped this off.

You mean that "Wanders" is not really Wilbur's nom de plume? -sigh- another illusion cruelly shattered like an ornament knocked to the floor while dusting.

Hmmm...so you think I have fallen victim to the old "I am an artist who can only draw two or three different faces" ploy?

At the risk of sounding like a philistine, I would not give house room to a Picasso. I acknowledge the intellectual achievment of cubism but that doesn't stop it from looking like a kindergarten scrawl.

I don't know, wanders. It sure looks like Wilbur to me as well--and I note that his snappy ensamble co-ordinates so well with Ron's outfit! :-)

And that poor woman with the handerchief! She seems to have rubbed both her left eye and eyebrow off, poor thing!

I do believe that a Hitler clone is getting ready to deliver the eulogy. Notice his handler/companion/bodyguard discreetly offering a NSDAP salute.

Did Mary really require an invitation to attend Donna's funeral? And did Ron really send them out? R.S.V.P. to 555-DEAD.

shandyowl: I don't remember exact Wilbur's nom de plume, but it is akin to "Ann Landers" or "Dear Abby", believe it or not. Last I recall, he was writing an advice column, but has not often consulted with Mary Worth.

drak: Zing! [Maybe it should've been 800.666.DEAD? :-)]

Richard didn't even show up. He's off looting Donna's empty house before anyone else can even take inventory.

"What Tiffany lampshade? And a jewelry box? You're just talking jibberish, Ron, mom never had any of those things! You must be distraught..."
