This Week in Milford

Panel One is quite a tight fit. The way True has to crook his neck just to squeeze in has him grimacing in pain. That’ll only get worse as he gets older and take more and more hits in the pocket. I recommend looking into the McKenzie method in his adult years.*

There’s not a whole lot more going on in the more expansive environs of Panel Two, but I have to wonder if that railing complies with all federal, state and local regulations for railings. I say I have to wonder because I am just that boring of a person.

Finally, we get the punchline in Panel Three. Huh, sneaking out in the middle of the night, getting your car vandalized while avoiding distinct chances of something much worse happening and Boo is shocked she got grounded.

I am sorry Vaganova, but I am tagging this one with Milford Idiots as Boo just doesn’t get it.

Bonus point: The spirit of Steve Luhm is still in evidence as those floors aren’t just clean, they are almost mirror like.

* True story: when confronted with crippling neck pain, I went to consult the book on treating neck and back pain my dad had given me but couldn’t find it. Being ever resourceful, I tracked down a copy at the local library. When I got there, I was amused – in a black humor sense – to find that all of the books on treating back and neck pain were on the bottom shelf at floor level. Coincidence or just a sadistic librarian? I suppose I’ll never know.



  1. Last year, Gil, Mimi, and Kaz were sipping adult beverages on the Thorp patio on 30 June, discussing seven-on-seven football. Are we just about done with the 2015 spring story line?

  2. Surely this crap will end tomorrow & Monday will be what we all have been waiting for…
    Meanwhile all the big time QB’s are at the Elite 11 camp is happening in Oregon w/o True, who still is in school after the 4th day…

  3. Musta been a whole lot of snow days last winter in Milford Town.

  4. It may be snow days. It’s also possible that Mfnrd, always pleasantly behind the times, is still on the Julian Calendar, under which it is only June 27th.

    Timbuys, no need to be apologetic about filing Boo under “Milford Idiots.” I’m just curious what has given her the vulcanized exterior and pathological resentment of her mother that comes off as selfishness. Maybe she’s just selfish, I don’t know, but I think there are things there we have not seen.
