So John Pascoe is officially (we think) going to State U. Woo Hoo! Hey that rhymes. Anyhoo, Gil is so glad to hear this news he lets her leap into his arms, and how this doesnt cause him to fall over is beyond me, given that her girth is 3 times his. We know nothing is over till the fat lady sings, but I’m saying Hallelujah to the resolution of this brief storyline.

Back to the good stuff, ie Marjie Ducey. She and Mrs. Pascoe both decided to wear the same thing today, although she looks way better in it; and Gil is giving her the dope about True being an ace pitcher. Sounds like she put out the question about his being ace material despite neither of them ever seeing him throw a baseball, at least in competition. We all know he can throw a football, but Gil is being cautiously optimistic about the whole thing. Marjie is like a bulldog, reaching for the grist of the story; good for her but Gil isnt biting. Cant just rely on one hurler anyway, and Marjie will next ask for the lineup, to be presented sometime this weekend. So baseball is here to say, and a few days without Boo Radley are always good for the soul.


  1. Gil’s hug of his secretary reminds me of when “Animal House” character Dean Wormer gets the fraternity’s test scores from his secretary and is so happy he kisses her — and the flustered, stimulated, discombobulated secretary begins typing at 300 words a minute.

  2. Juicy Ducey…. or, random Rubenesque administrative assistant with dangling heart earrings. I think we learned just a little bit TMI about Gil today.

    Does Mar-Gee know she’s getting sloppy seconds?
