Mary Worth 3657

"No, Ashlee, my watch. I'm worried that I may have stitched it inside of Mrs. Jacobson."

No, he didn’t lose a patient. It’s worse than that. He lost his watch! Unlike all those nameless, faceless patients, Roley had a name (and a face).

Drew is a twit, and he deserves whatever he’ll Ashlee is about to bring!

I was going to write, “No, Ashlee…it’s worse. II can’t find my watch!” but Wanders’s post and secret message are funnier.

Drew might be borrowing dear old corny dad’s wardrobe. Orangey-tan dad pants with a mauve shirt, and a too-short tie?Even loosened, that tie is too short.

I hope Drew and Ashlee run into Jeff and Mary on the boardwalk. If looks can kill, Ashlee will be taking a header into the drink after a Mary Super Glare.

Well, kick me in the scruples and call me Ashlee. I think we here are lookin’ at an “Ashlee Grows a Conscience Story” folks. Drew will tell her that his Rolex once belonged to his grandfather on his mother’s side. With her last breath, Mom made Jeff promise to give it to Drew when (and if) he graduated from med school. Ashlee will have to pretend that she’s returned to Apparition Forest and found the watch.

Helen Clark,
As much as I would like to say you are wrong, you have called so many story lines that I have to believe your scenario is correct.
My fear is KM will subject us to an endless conversation about redemption and forgiveness. Maybe Drew can get Ashlee a dog to heal her wounds from her childhood. It worked for Saul and Eve.

And while in the forest looking for the Rolex, they will find a bird that fell off one of the branches that Jeff is always taking pictures of. Ashlee will feel sorry for the bird, try to rehabilitate it and decides to become a veterinarian. I mean, if she thinks she could be the next Bella Hadid, why not a vet?

"What a fortunate coincidence, I just happen to know someone who can get you a watch just like yours for about half the price."

Ha haaa, one of Mary's Super Glares can peel the barnacles right off Jeff's speedboat.

Wouldn't it be great to see them run into Jeff and Mary, Brandy and Tommy, Dawn and Jared, Iris and Zak, Saul and Eve, and Wilbur and Iris on the boardwalk? And they all decide to throw Wilbur over the rail?

I've been a Certified Surgical Technologist for 25 years. Part of my responsibility when scrubbed in on a case is to make cure NOTHING is left in. We count all items on the sterile field three or four times during an operation. I have never misplaced ANY instrument or sponge. I am insulted by the insinuation that a wrist watch was ever left in a patient by a member of the surgical team!!! All jewelry is removed before the surgical scrub. My lost wedding ring was in my pocket and went into the laundry by accident. Harumph.


However, I have removed a watch that was swallowed as well as several other "foreign bodies" that need not be mentioned in this family blog

Today's Boldface Haiku is titled

"He Can't Face It, And She's Having Second Thoughts".

Look so sad,
My watch!...

What? Did I lose a patient? No. At least I don’t think so. Mr Johnson seemed to be doing fine when I left. I mean, I tried to finish his heart transplant but every time I looked at his new ticker all I could think about was my watch. So I left. But I’m pretty sure he pulled through. I left Dr Kupuht to finish up. That guy is great with a needle.

Firing on all cylinders today, everyone! I found myself obsessing on Ashlee's ponytail holders. I remember them from my adolescence in the 1960's, which made me wonder how old Ashlee is. Turns out they still make those ponytail holders, which I remember hurting my head if I forgot and tried to sleep with them attached. When I looked them up online, I was surprised to see they are still available, so perhaps their presence in Ashlee's reminiscence is not indicative of her age. Online reviewers lamented the poor quality of today's "twin bead ponytail holders". For those of you who remember, here's a link to the originals, complete with their .79 price. https://backintimetoys.wordpress.com/2019/06/02/twin-bead-ponytail-holder/

You may notice that the wrapper for every set of pony tail holders shows a blond kid wearing them. Perhaps Ashlee got the idea of being a model from someone who saw her wearing those pony tail holders!

He absolutely lost a patient today.





She switched to a more competent doctor.

How about we take up a collection so that June can take some art classes and learn how to draw hands doing things: holding phones; holding forks; holding hands?

If I were Drew, I’d check with Steve Kornacki. He’s wearing khakis just like Steve’s - maybe they accidentally got them mixed up...in the locker room of the gym.
