How excit…well, maybe not…

Still, there’s SO MUCH to plan for!

And because it’s HER COMIC, Mary happily interrupts to cogitate on the New Year as she prepares a fine dinner, no doubt for those who would more appreciate it…herself!

(And Ga-ga has a difference Rilke quotation, in case you were wondering.)

…when one of the Readers of the Comics Curmudgeon ask, “Wouldn’t it be nice (no, it wouldn’t) if the Jules ball (from the new abortion that is Mark Trail) rolled into Mary Worth and livened things up?” I don’t know if it’d liven things up, but I’m willing to give it a try.

And sort of a trip back to the ’70s, when Mary came to Santa Royale to manage Charterstone, and was apprised of all the “don’t”s of the place…like no pets, no children, and I suspect no one that failed the WASPy look, either…

Tommy remembers who Mary Worth is! (Geeez, when even Tommy realized how lame spending time with Brandy is…)

Yes, big bag o’ Ravioli is a little out of Mary’s wheelhouse, so what else could it be?

Mary’s generosity blooms even more this time of year, with a offering of a big ol’ slab of holiday blueberry cobbler!

And then, all the good will goes south…

…and familiarity begins to breed contempt…

And then, the story never, ever ended…it just went on and on.

See? SEE??? I told you it never ended!!!

Well, if it isn’t the Spencers, from Judge Parker! To be honest, I lost interest in this strip after the mass “Breast-Reduction Surgeries of ’17” (new artist, new writer and all), and it seems that it’s turned into a comedified War and Peace. There are times, however, when it’s worth slogging through all. the. words (look at all of ’em!)…

Hey, look….it’s the genuine Judge Parker himself…and having a lousy holiday season, too!

All we have to do now is wait…

Looks like Sophie’s off to college, but not bidding her dead old grandpa a fond farewell…

In retrospect, it’s a good thing that Abby only ADOPTED the girls…

…when Pluggers is getting to be one of the most up-beat and happy strips around.

And when the little bits of happiness go blissfully around….

And then there are some subjects that I know WAY too much about. In addition to losing a certain number with each decade…

It’s just sort of reminiscent of another strip…another plot…another character…

Hey, you’re retired, Plugger! Who the hell cares WHEN you show up (if ever)?

One could only hope, but it wouldn’t be much of a climax:

Like the previous “Madi searches for her feelings” plot (I think it was that one), this current plot is going on and on. Don’t believe me? How long do you need to be in a diner for a meal? Even if you have something to discuss with an ex-boyfriend, or whatever…

It looks like Brandy and Tommy are one again! I’d like to say “One and done,” but I doubt that I’ll be that lucky…

…then again, you never know!

And once again, Moy and Brigman appear to forget that Mary Worth is the title. and the main character. and why thy get paid for churning out this little stip. Time to remind them. Drawing the curtain on this current plot wouln’t hurt, either…
