Mary Worth 1,289

I know, Mary, right? There are so few rare good things in the world. The world sucks. Especially with all of its redundant redundancy.

It IS just like Santa Royale... except for one thing...

The hacks have their steering wheels on the right side of the car!

For those of you who are fans of my daughter Maggie, here's a performance from the other night. Had to share.

You know what else Gina has? Her ponytail! I was worried yesterday that Mary Worth really didn't remember who Gina is because she had forgotten Gina's ponytail, visible at any angle. But after today, I'm not worried anymore.

Although I am a little confused about Gina's engagement being kept a secret for six months.

It was quite courteous of Pam Am to move their boarding gate to Mary Worth's kitchen.

Ding Ding Ding to KitKat who was the first to predict that Mary's "old friend" in New York is Gina Baroni-Black, socialite wife of the famous New York Soccer Team player Bobby Black. Nice of her to visit her former waitress, when she hasn't even once been to see her other "old friend" in New York, the grieving mother of a 9/11 victim. Maybe she'll be able to break away from Gina for just a few minutes to make another phone call.

Off to New York! Get my hat and coat! My favorite city in the world! Do not delay! Catch a plane or a train. New York is where you need to be! Broadway! Central Park! Battery Park! A wave goodbye and we're off! Oh this is going to be exciting!

Just to add to the excitement, here's a recent photo of Mrs. Wanders and me in Times Square.

I shudder to think what these two need to be redeemed from. Painting clowns? Baking casseroles? It's never too late.

Yes, Mary Worth, please take the credit. After all, it was your tenacity and personal involvement that made all the difference in Nola's epiphany. By the way, that was a fantastic magical hobo costume.

No, Toby, wonders never will cease. Because you live in Santa Royale, California, the most wonderful place in the whole entire world, full of expensive shopping districts, and magical hobos! Now run along and paint a picture of a magical hobo would you?

You know what I didn't see coming? That Mary and Toby would have a gossip session to talk about Nola. Will wonders never cease??

Is it Hobo Joe or D-Dan Smithers crouching behind Nola and handing her a cup of coffee?

That would have been a good scene... but I liked watching Mary and Jeff watch television.

Let's see. According to my records, Mary and Nola last spoke on March 8, 2012, over a month ago. So, yes, a lot has happened since then. The chief of police in Sanford, Florida, resigned over the handling of the Trayvon Martin case; the US Supreme Court heard arguments on the Affordable Health Care Act; Mitt Romney won the primary in Puerto Rico, and Rick Santorum won the primary in Louisiana... so yes, a lot has been happening. However, in Santa Royale, Nola met a hobo, and Mary and Jeff philosophized. So it really depends on your perspective.

I am dying to know what low road Mary is referring to when she includes herself as a fellow sojourner. Perhaps she has seen the light and recognizes the destruction her meddling has caused in the lives of others.

I'd like to congratulate the Daily Register of Mitchell, South Dakota. The editors were faced with the grim reality that they only had room for one soap opera strip in their esteemed pages and Mary Worth won out! Based on anecdotal evidence! I would like to think that this blog was part of the anecdote.

I visited the Newseum in Washington D.C., and was thrilled to see many important artifacts dealing with 9/11, Watergate, the Kennedy assassination, and this:



Then I came home to read this wonderful Tweet!

Wanders, I love your blog. My friend @ThePilgrums and I are recording a Mary Worth Podcast. We've only recorded 1 episode so far...

youtube.com/watch?v=r5kqcy… - The first episode. It's not done yet. We're still experimenting. Also, I blatantly stole ONE JOKE from you in it.


Hey, if you want to promote Mary Worth, steal all you want from me! Way to go!

The hollow emptiness in Jeff's eyes tells me there won't be any more marriage proposals.

I think I like Jeff's story better. Couldn't we have had that story instead?

In the case of Televangelist Johnny Thomas, that trigger would be media hounding.
