If ever a work of art has captured the essence of familial love, it is this one. Gordy's attachment to his grandmother is clearly unmatched as she takes a break from packing boxes to explain to her daughter why she and Gordy were excluded from her recent marriage ceremony. Additionally, it portrays without irony the artist's deep understanding of matrimonial bliss as Hanna is empowered to move herself into her man's apartment the day after her wedding.

Meanwhile, Dave is telling his buddy Mike, "And our dual incomes will let me finally achieve the lifestyle of my dreams!"

In honor of Amy being able to quit her job, I've added the song Pretty Woman to the Jukebox.

But, really, I can't say it better than Josh did today at the Comics Curmudgeon.

All is right with the world. Hanna and Amy both have husbands, and Gordon has a new device to access the Internet. Perhaps Amy could help pack up some of Hanna's boxes. Sean and Mary sure have disappeared.

Oh, Little Gordy. What do we really know about you? You love television, and cartoons about rockets and big brown mice. You like robots and riding in the front seat like a big boy. And now, I'm just guessing, there's a new man in your mommy's life. So if you thought you were neglected before, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Since I can no longer follow this complex plot -- it's just that amazing -- I thought I'd share a few other thoughts.

Yesterday, we had snow. It started at about 10 a.m., and by the time I was driving home from work at 5 p.m., the freeway was packed with ice and piles of slush that slopped up on the undercarriage with a sloshy grate. Most of the cars on the Interstate seemed to be following best driving practices, with an occasional jerk weaving aggressively past anyone with hazard lights. But the rest of us caravanned at a steady 20 m.p.h. knowing full well that one wrong move would ruin the drive for everyone coming next.

My wife and I went to Maui last September, as you might remember, where the speed limit actually is 20 m.p.h., so I told my wife that basically it was like driving in Hawaii. I'm not sure everyone on the freeway agreed, but the association got me home calm, collected, and definitely cool.

Speaking of making it through the cold, here's a column by my favorite writer Michael Perry, that I know you'll enjoy.

If you like the article, you will love his books. This is one of my favorites:

The Valencia Resort in Goleta. It's not a real place, unfortunately. Although there is the Bacara Resort & Spa in Goleta, and the Rancho Valencia in Rancho Santa Fe not too far away. Both are very expensive, but I've been reading about making your goals a reality through the power of visualization. I keep trying to visualize these resorts, hoping to go someday, but unfortunately, my visualization always drifts to Hanna and Sean's honeymoon. I lose interest, really fast, and start visualizing the Goleta Jiffy Lube instead. It's one of the best.

The hand coming out of Sean's breast pocket is telling the hand coming out of Mary's belly to tell the hand in Hanna's salad to show a little class.

Despite how long this has gone on, I think they may have rushed into marriage. I wonder if Sean has even noticed her sideburns.

I don't know who is responsible for placing the flag at Office Marriage Bureau, but it doesn't go in the back of the room behind the door. That's just disrespectful.

You fools! Lucky Number 5 will never overpower the calamitous effects of getting married on Friday the 13th.

Is it his charming sense of humor or his inflatable head that Hanna finds most appealing?

It was inevitable that Sean and Hanna would spend their lives making comparisons to their first marriages. I just didn't expect it to start on the way to the alter.

"I remember my first wedding, it was in a beautiful church. I remember my first wedding cake, it was moist and chocolate. I remember my first wedding witness, she was really young." The comparisons continue for six whole years. That's how long they have to live right?

Superpowerless: A Coming of Middle Age Story

I wanted to invite everyone to enjoy the preview to my brother's next Indie film, Superpowerless, and invite you to help with the final push by contributing to his post production Kickstarter campaign. It is going to be a very cool film, and you can be a part of it with a pledge of support of any size. And be sure to share the campaign on the social media of your choice.

Hanna and Sean both look kind of embarrassed. As if they may have actually forgotten her, and had to turn around.

Speaking of embarrassed, the other day I saw my friend whose last name is Hastings and kept calling him Sean. His name is Todd.

This is a great plan, with lots of positive outcomes. Not only does it deny Amy the opportunity to attend her mother's wedding, but it means Hanna won't even have to tell her husband about their daughter and grandson until it's too late for him to back out. It's win-win.

A remarkable transformation indeed. It's almost as if she isn't even the same character anymore.

Isn't it wonderful how good things happen in ways no one could have foreseen? Wait. I mean, isn't it wonderful how boring things happen in ways that everyone guessed four months ago? Truly wonderful.
