I love that the picture of Dan and Hanna Dingdon is sitting right at her elbow as she throws herself at Sean. That's right, I said, "Dan and Hanna Dingdon."
In memory of Dan, I've put the bomp on the Charterstone Jukebox.
Today's Full Strip
In an irony or cosmic proportions, an apartment at Somerset unexpectedly becomes available for Hanna when Felicia marries Sean Hastings and moves in with him.
Make that "of cosmic"...
Love Rat Senior Creates Chaos at SomersetSanta Royale PD was called to the scene of a disturbance at the exclusive and costly Somerset Retirement Community. The facility, home to 80 elderly women and three elderly men, degenerated into a loud and quarrelsome brawl when the attentions of one of the men were found to have been focused on several of the women, and on one newcomer in particular.When interviewed by SRPD, 88-year-old Sean Hastings acknowledged that he frequently took various women out in his 1960 Studebaker Lark, and occasionally 'visited' them in their apartments. Recently, a new arrival on the Somerset scene was the recipient of his interest. When other, more-established residents discovered that the dashing white-mustachioed Hastings was focused on one Hanna Dingding, the scorned women turned on one another and on Hastings and Dingling as well. Felicia (who declined to give her surname), sobbed, "Sean thinks that just because he can still drive that he can do what he wants. And he's a terrible driver! He was supposed to come up to my apartment for tomato juice and Ritz crackers, and then we were going to watch the Betty White special together. But, instead, he's out carousing with Hanna Dongdon. Oh, boo hoo hoo- Sean, I thought we were everything to each other..."Gladys Kelrast, a long-time widow, said, " I knew that Dungdin biddy was trouble the minute she showed up with Mary Worth. And I was considering knitting him a sweater vest for Christmas.Cora Cory, chairwoman of the bingo society at Somerset, was eager to tell her story, but she forgot it.SRPD separated Hastings and his various inamoratas, and he was uninjured except for a few pulled-out mustache hairs. His nose was examined and treated by a paramedic.Hanna Dingdon declined to be interviewed and was seen driving away in a yellow car, running over the Somerset sign as she left.Fortunately for all involved, Mary Worth, Santa Royale's resident Angel of Advice, arrived just in time to wave grandly to those she knew, and to pick up Sean Hastings and whisk him away to the Bum Boat, a Restaurant. Update: SRPD was called to the Bum Boat to break up a fight between Sean Hastings and Dr. Jeff Cory who said, "Of all of the fish joints in all of Santa Royale, they have to walk into this one. And I was really enjoying the salmon square special."
Oh, meg, that was the hardest I've laughed in a long time. TY.
Gosh Meg, you are such a wicked, wicked wit. Kudos!
"His nose was examined and treated by a paramedic"... Hastings-Cory fisticuffs at the Bum Boat ... Oh Meg, I'm in (silent) hysterics at my desk! I guess we should thank KM for inspiring you to such heights!
@Meg, this is incredible, but my first car was a 1960 Studebaker Lark. I was 16 years old, and it was my pride and joy. I still have a picture of me standing next to it. I'm glad to know that Sean gave it a good home.
Fantastic and useful reporting, Meg! I will appreciate the rest of this storyline much more now.
I like to imagine that Dan Dingdon's middle name was Donald.
