Wait! "Dear" is what Zak calls Iris. What is going on, Zak? Is Nan still making white rice and hamburger gravy for you on the side? Or could the author be purposely misleading us into doubting Zak's integrity and commitment? Which begs the question, can a red herring really build suspense, or is it just a prelude to inevitable disappointment?

I'm on board with this, one hundred percent. Not only do I have the complete 26-volume set of all the Peanuts strips on my bookshelf, but over the years I've worn a few Snoopy shirts myself.

I decided a long time ago that if a T-shirt is worth buying, it should have the Peanuts on it. It probably has something to do with a story I've shared before about my freaky relationship with all things Peanuts.

Wait, Iris is over 50 already?? Where has the time gone? Zak and Tommy are the same age, and when Iris first met Zak, he was 25. I figured that Iris probably had Tommy young, perhaps 23 or even younger, placing her at late forties, but that was six years ago. Six years ago. So Iris is now in her early fifties.

So how does it look? I'd say Zak is a gold-digger, but in your case, he's probably just a grave-digger.

I don't know if I mentioned this, but Mrs. Wanders and I had our first grandbaby last month. She's coming by this afternoon for some turkey.

Okay, no cliff tops, and no circuses. I can't think of any other place they could possibly hold their wedding. This is getting tough. Better get that wedding planner.

That's a pretty tall order. You've set a pretty high bar for yourself. Following that terrain of thought, I can see you've really fallen for this guy. I hope you look before you leap. But I get it: Zak's a steeper. No reason to change your altitude. You can't mesa with fate. Mount me in! I'll ski there. I know you'll live happily Everest after.

I'm not sure it is going to be as enjoyable as Mary promises, but if the uncoventional Jill Black makes an appearance, it will certainly have its moments.

That's sort of how I feel about this strip. I mean, here we all are together. Strangers from around the world, united in our shared misery.

I know some have theorized that Mary is a mechanical alien spying on humanity in an effort to rule earth, but really, could a robot master that English language in such a natural way?
