Actually, Saul, they only have 72 hours. But I'm sure you and Mary can cheer them up!

If I felt badly for Saul when his dog died, it doesn't compare to how badly I feel for him now. If there's a special place in hell for chihuahua's, Bella is still better off than Saul is right now at this moment with this tormenter.

Has Mary Worth ever had a better idea than this? Saul will take one look at all those little animals with just 72 hours to five days to live, and he'll cheer right up! Bella who?

Maybe this is why I haven't been around much the last few days...

For those of you who are wondering what in the holy name of Scooby-Doo Mary means when she says that by shutting out the bad, we also shut out the good, I put it to the test. When I shut out this strip for three days, I missed the good - all of you guys.

It's only been months? It feels longer. But I think he's entitled to grieve for at least as long as you feel entitled to obsess over him.

The last time Mary made muffins for an elderly bachelor, she was assaulted. I would think she'd want to keep away from the muffins for a while. Instead, she tries immersion therapy.

Myster Wynter has been slamming doors in peoples faces for so long that he forgot how to close the door when he's with a friend and feeling sad.

Saturday, October 6, 2018

Mary Worth 2984

She's gaining on you Myster Wynter! Run, Saul, Run! She's relentless, but don't give up. Just a ... few ... more ... yards to your front door where nothing will ever remind you of Bella again. Except for the 37 framed photos on the wall, and the chew toys in her chair.

At last, something about this story is hasty. We're really moving now!

But, hey, it was the sixties in Brooklyn. Everyone had an arranged marriage.

The condo board has rejected my petition to add this song to the jukebox.

Death metal music is also gnarly. But hopefully, we can learn from it.

Grief is not a plot. The only way this is a plot is if either Mary is hitting on Myster Wynter, or if the two of them discover that they both dabble in the dark arts, and Myster Wynter and Mary Wyrth raise Bella from the dead.

Mary's really good at coming up with obscure quotes that are totally apropos for the moment. I can only quote television, which sometimes gets me into trouble.

"Friends joke with one another. 'Hey, you're poor. Hey, your mama's dead.' That's what friends do." - Michael J. Scott, The Office

Not really appropriate, but funny in context.

A blood clot doesn't sound like such a bad way to get out of this story.

Write your creative answers in the comments section, only here's the challenge: You can't use the words "salmon," "appetizer" or "shame."

"Myster Wynter, I can bring Bella back... All I will need is a patch of her fur, some black chalk, and a strong electric current. Oh, and your immortal soul. Would that be acceptable to you?"

Mary begins to comprehend that she may have been responsible for Bella's early demise.

Something that Myster Wynter has already learned, but Toby will never ever in a bazillion years understand.

I'm loving new phlegmatic Toby. In my experience, most artists tend to be very empathetic and sensitive people. But not Toby Cameron. She's a hardcore, heartless alcoholic who paints evil clowns, and sculpts endangered species just to exercise control over them. Just when you think she can't get any more shocking, she slams another martini and cranks the volume to 11.

Tuesday, September 11, 2018

Mary Worth 2970

Toby hates animals. That's why she sculpts them in clay. So she can smash them in the street when she gets angry.

Tobies magically sprout in Mary's daffodil patch because they're daffy!

Mary Worth 2968

I keep thinking Myster Wynter is some sort of stage name for a professional wrestler. I definitely want to see him in a cage match with His Own Demons.

Thursday, September 6, 2018

Mary Worth 2966

I don't usually make plot predictions because... well, what's the point? But if this story doesn't finish with a death match between Myster Wynter and Ian for the affection of Toby's steel blue galvanized heart, I'll be sorely disappointed.

Where'd all the swimmers go? I'm starting to wonder if the Charterstone pool is some sort of mythical subterranean beast that opens its mouth camouflaged as a swimming pool waiting for its prey to take a dip. The size of the pool adjusts to indicate how hungry it is.

Joe Giella never drew swimmers in the pool because he was aware of this trap, until Olive fell in and was almost eaten. June Brigman still has a lot to learn about Santa Royale, obviously.

Last year, Wilbur in a Speedo won panel of the year. But this year, I think he's gone too far.

People tend to avoid Mister Wynter. He bites, and his owner lets him do whatever he wants like sit on tabletops and eat people food.

Today's strip has EVERYTHING you could possibly hope for: Pool party, salmon squares, muffins... and not a Beedie or Weston in sight!

Gasp from the student body.

If decent means he isn't selling tainted meth anymore, then, yes, stockboy at Freda's is definitely decent. Well-paying with benefits and opportunities for advancement and personal fulfillment? No. Legal? Yes.

And they were never heard from again. The end. Unless the next story is about the perils of staring at the sun.

Hopefully, when that weight comes crashing back down, they'll both be still so committed to sobriety and accountability that it won't drag them down to the bottom of the beautiful lagoon. And hopefully, when it does, we won't have to watch.

And thus we see that love is an eternal circle. Did I say circle? I meant cycle. A cycle of codependency and dysfunction.

Karen Moy's words say, "And they lived happily ever after." June Brigman's art says, "I'm not so sure about that..."

I miss the days when Joe Giella would just draw a fifth finger or an extra elbow to indicate his frustration.

Of course, all of that could change at any moment given the look on Brandy's face. Let's see how things go after Brandy starts taking the bus again.

Brandy is going to have a revelation for him, too: "I will not be the catalyst for your sobriety. If you can't do it for yourself, then you can't do it for me either."

"I also live with my mom and drive you home in her car. I've lost a series of jobs, and I work as a stock boy in a grocery store... oh, wait, you already know that last one."

I was surprised to learn yesterday how many of you actually live in Maine! If I'd known, I would have suggested we take a cruise together or something.

Tommy has never been in a relationship with a woman long enough for it to reach the abusive stage. Tommy and methamphetamine, however, have quite a lengthy history.

I'm home from vacation, and secret messages will return! Here are some pictures.
