Poor Sophie! Trying to snag a boy by offering him an expensive guitar, when you just know  his girlfriend is the epitome of what a significant number of modern high school girls are doing for their guys these days…

Because Lu Ann has pretty much discovered it all by herself!

And so has dear old Mary Worth, for that matter!

…last Sunday’s panel-heavy 9 Chickweed Lane, with no dialog but a plethora of random (maybe otherwise, given the writer) punctuation marks, only made me think of a feminine protection commercial.  So, run with it, says I!

America’s all-American nature writer (from America!) gets ready for that most American of holidays!

Oh, Mary, maybe it’s worth a couple hundred bucks to keep your private life…well, private.

Maybe it’s just better to imagine Mary as a vigilante than a dirty old whore  (I think that’s one of Dr. Jeff’s fond sayings about her, come to think of it)…

Or, maybe it’s just best to imagine Mary as a sad and lonely old woman, one whose few friends become only more and more tired of her meddling antics and hackneyed axioms with each passing year…someday, Toby, the torch will be passed…someday.

Even Mark.  Especially Mark…

And here’s to Bil Keane who passed away today at the fine old age of 89.  The Family Circus wasn’t my cup of tea or bowl of spizgetti, but kudos to a long and happy career!  He even came and talked to our summer school creative writing class way back in the 1960s!

Poor Lu Ann…more pulled in more directions and clueless than ever.

Fortunately, all is not lost…

The weeks of angst and pain as Gina the Witless Protection Waitress spilled her guts to Mary about her First Love culminated in a whirlwind of reuniting with him and driving off to NYC with him to live Happily Ever After.  (No kidding!)

This probably means we’ll never hear from Gina again unless her boyfriend/husband suffers a tragic soccer accident, loses his starring position in his prestigious professional soccer team, and starts beating her.

In the meantime, Mary discovers that Gina never even bothered to say goodbye to her, leaving her at quite a loss.  No waitress to pick up her sizable “liquid” tab at The Diner…

…or one who just wants the same Mary Worth “Love Connection” as Gina had.  Good heavens, even Mary can’t stomach a repeat meddling so soon!

What is a biddy to do?

Let’s get revved up for Mary’s new adventure!

Brad’s girlfriend has inadvertently gotten him fired from a dead end job, and he’s being all pricky about it (Toni, sweetie, this is about as big a prick you’re ever going to be able to associate with him).

Geez, I hate the DeGroots…
