"I was thinking that after we get your meds, we could go to the bar and watch sports. Just don't order a drink because you know what an addict you are."
HGTV needs to pickup on this wonderful new trend: Coordinate kitchen countertops to match one's hair and the age old problem of hair in the food is solved. If you can't see it, it doesn't exist. Sort of like Tommy's addictions. Denial is everything.
Staying in his room all day is Tommy's plan for today.
I think Karen Moy is being irresponsible in her handling of this topic. I know, or at least hope, that no one would look to a comic strip, especially this one, for guidance, but still. Also, I miss the Mary Worth of yore, with her tightly woven hair and smug face.
Is Tommy also taking steroids?
In addition to the missing upper lip, Iris' nose is vanishing. Is it anxiety, or just too much Botox?
Tommy should be happy he has such beautiful fingers. He could have inherited his mother's - yesterday in particular they looked like Buddha's hand citron. Maybe he is embarrassed to hang out and be seen with her because of those claws. Oh, that and the fact that it's no fun to do drugs with Mom around.
Tommy can pick up some laxatives at the pharmacy, too, because he certainly would need some by now. I, too, miss the old Mary, Vince, and the old everybody else. I wish they had gotten an artist who could approximate Joe's style. As it is, I'm hanging on by a thread. If it weren't for Wanders and the wonderfully creative folks who comment here, I wouldn't even bother with this strip any more. And if it weren't for Georgia Dunn's "Breaking Cat News" and re-runs of "Cul de Sac," "The Heart of Juliet Jones," and "Buz Sawyer," I'd probably give up on the comics entirely.
Vince and Yahoonski - I'm with you. Missing Uncle Joe more and more each day. I'm thinking that the Worthy Awards may be a thing of the past. What possible fun will it be to choose from any of June's characters or panels - dull, dull, dull.....
@fauxprof It seems she is turning into Lord Voldemort!
Tommy, what's the name of the doctor you're seeing for your 'scripts? Dr. Kapuht. He wants to have a look at my torso today.You guys are right. This storyline is extra-dull, with an overlay of tragedy. I may have to go to BeetleBaileyandme to make my contributions.See you in the officer's club. I'll be the one leaning into a large gin and tonic.
Heavens to Betsy! I'm going to put in a vote FOR June Brigman. I loved Joe Giella (especially his plastically perfect Mary!), but June's art is really beautiful and fantastic! Her Tommy looks simply scrumptious! Just look at those arms! (Be still my heart!)As for the story ... well ... ARGH!!!! @#$%!!!
TUESDAYYes, Iris, since Tina Baby broke up with him, there's nothing your son would rather do than go to a drug store with his mother. To add to the enjoyment, be sure to pick up Gatorade and Skittles! Note to Tommy: Since you have so much time on your hands today, wash those dishes.
It's great that Mary's advice to Iris was essentially the same as her advice to Dawn: diversify your time commitments, and everything will be better!
It's an exciting weekend in Santa Royale for theater aficionados. The Santa Royale Junior College Drama Department will present A Streetcar Named Desire, capably directed by Adjunct Professor Ian Cameron. All scenes will be set and performed on the grounds of Charterstone Condominium Complex, standing in for fabulous New Orleans.Cameron has reworked the plot somewhat, setting it in a Canadian Mounties barracks, giving new weight to the famous quote "I have always been dependent on the kindness of rangers." The part of Blanche Dubois will be played by Iris Beedie wearing her own slip and bathrobe for verisimilitude. Some would call the casting of Tommy Beedie as Stanley Kowalski a casting stunt, but dude is just so buff in his very own wife-beater style undershirt. Other cast members are to be named later, but Mary Worth is said to be under consideration for the part of Blanche's sister Stellllllllllllaaaaaaa!
Half of Iris facial features keep disappearing. No wonder Tommy is scarred. It must be horrifying growing up with a mom that has a Rohrshach face. Was Iris a Watchman?
So eyeballs vanish in profile and nose bridges vanish in frontal view. I miss Uncle Joe.
WEDNESDAYThat's a big vehicle Iris is driving, with plenty of room for many pill bottles.If Joe Giella were still drawing the strip, Cypress Avenue would be full of blowing trash, ramshackle buildings, and loitering guys with backwards ball caps. I'm not optimistic that June is up to the task at hand.
I'm getting a little freaked out by the empty eye sockets, so I'm concentrating on the background random purple people. That lady is looking the wrong way and is about to walk into a tree. As to Tommy, how long before he's going all the way to Goleta for--ahem, "cheaper" meds.
I nominate "Cypress Avenue" by Van Morrison for the Charterstone Jukebox.
Are the purple guys holding hands?
How are they able to navigate and drive with no eyes?
Jeep used to make the Eddie Bauer edition.Iris is driving the new Rove Ranger Splak edition. She must have paid extra for the Kelk green paint.
