After driving a day, a night, and a day (panel 1), Jeff and Mary continue to discuss her involvement with John Dill. And in so doing, Mary makes perhaps the boldest New Year's resolution ever. Mary Worth, meddler extraordinary, will limit herself to one good deed for the entire year. However, this being only January, she will either fail miserably or this will be one heck of a long story.
By the way, thanks everybody for your fun feedback on the Worthy Awards. And thanks also to those of you who threw a few donations into the tip jar. As for those who felt cheated by Chin Napkin's loss, I can only say that we have such high expectations for Chin Napkin, and this year he just didn't measure up. But please don't boycott the sponsors. In fact, please patronize the sponsors as much as possible. The Worthy Awards are expensive! So much gold painted plastic on those loving cups.
