Empty Nesters, Again

Another Christmas, another Thorp Christmas greeting, another Thorp Christmas greeting in a different font, another Thorp Christmas greeting in a different font and without the Thorp children.  For the sixth consecutive year Gil and Mimi appear childless (see Ned’s Christmas Day 2010 post for 2001-10; no strip on Christmas Sunday 2011, and below for 2012-13):





Is it me or is Mimi getting younger looking every year?  I have my own theory about the Thorp kids, which I didn’t develop until after I went to the movies last month:

We’ll be back to Bobby Howry, the Milford Mouseketeer Roll Call, and Mudlark hoops tomorrow. For now, feel free to speculate on the Thorp family whereabouts. Merry Christmas everybody!



  1. Christmas-time in the Thorpiverse is the season for everyone to get very, very grabby.

    I do like the festive mugs Gil and Mimi are celebrating with this year!

  3. Nice display of WAG-as-fashion-accessory. “Try draping your WAG around your neck. Or toss her casually over your shoulder. Whichever way you go, you’ll be sending a not-so-subtle message that you’re studly as hell and your WAG has dutifully surrendered her independence.”
