Mary Worth 3400

Twenty years active service Marine Corps may not have taught me how to say no to a distant leech of a relative, but it sure taught me how to make my bed.

The problem is Greta. She took away Saul's spine. Now, Bella... there was a mutt who would have shown Madi who didn't like whom.

Order your personal Greta pillow here.

Oh, that's a Greta pillow. When I first saw that, I thought Saul was tucking in Greta, which doesn't make any sense if he's making the bed, but it makes just as much sense as that trail of clothes in the hall.

What are we supposed to think happened there? Since no rational or irrational person would ever leave such a mess in such a way, I am left to conclude that an angry Greta got in Angri's dresser and threw her clothes all around. That's the only thing that remotely makes any sense.

I wonder if Ian's recovered from his botulism yet.

Wanders, that pillow is a scream, and put together so quickly to boot! Sheer genius! Perhaps a portion of the proceeds from the sales can go to the Santa Royale Home for Abandoned Adolescent Girls.

I’ve never considered making the bed any kind of ritual. I just try to make it before one or both of the cats jump on it and sprawl out for the first of a series of naps.

Another important ritual in the Wynter household is Saul and Greta choosing the bow tie of the day.

I smell a set-up; poor Greta.

Madi: Uncle Saul! Look what your stupid dog did! She got into my suitcase and now all my clothes are ruined. You need to get rid of that filthy mutt today!

Greta: Ruh roh...

Wanders,

My after twenty two years of marriage, my wife still thinks I'm silly folding (or refolding) my clothes "The Navy Way".

Panel two: this could be my oldest.

You know.... we had an old cat once who would $%^& on the clothes on the floor in my son's room. I told him "Pick up your room and Smudge won't $%^& on your clothes."

Perhaps Saul could take in Libby, too?

Myster Wynter really needs help. I love my cats, but gee whiz, I don't have huge pictures everywhere or an pillow with the on it. However, I am tempted to get a Greta pillow just to scare my cats.

RobC, my husband was also in the Navy. He'll fold the clothes "the Navy way" and I then refold him the way I want it. I had a cat who would wait until I made the bed, then she would jump on it and puke all over it. Never on the floor, where I could take a paper towel to it, right on the bed. Maybe that's what happened to Angri (love the Name Scottie, McW!)

True story. When I was married to my first husband, he would throw his clothes all over then floor band the cats would pee all over them. I had had just about enough and I told him if it kept happening, I would set fire to them. He laughed at me. Big mistake. I took a match and he lost a shirt. It never happened again. Myster Wynter should do the same. Just don't use gasoline.

Greta, with a hobo stick in her mouth is heading back to the shelter. She's had enough of the crazy in he Wynter household.

I bought my daughter a Mary Worth pillow and set of coasters as a dorm-warming gift when she went to college. No better way to keep the wolves at bay.

My daughter went to Panama for the spring semester
Halfway through, they called her home.
She had to scramble to find spots for her stuff
I think they're in at least 5 places. We're hoping that 3 turn up intact.
And of course, that they come up with a way to hold classes that doesn't cheat the seniors of everything they've worked for.
