This Week in Milford

So All of a Sudden You Care Again?

Back on the shores of Hubbell Pond Lake Milford and now the Mudlark footballers have migrated to a picnic table. One of them is even randomly waving/fist pumping at the random personal watercraft rider jetting by. But hey, where the women at? And are those kids drinking a six-pack of Billy Beer?

Speaking of women: I’m assuming (at least for today) that the voice of the talking house is being provided by Art Standish. After all he’s the only person in the last year and a half of this strip who has nagged someone about practicing their sport. Has he finally had enough makeup sex with True’s mom to notice what True’s been doing with himself? Given Art’s character development last year, his total passivity toward True’s baseball activities (that is, beyond “benching” True after making his late-night Boo call) was one of the more bothersome aspects of the spring sports arc.



  1. P3 – Not, that’s not a tongue of hellfire erupting from the earth. It’s a lovingly trimmed Thuja occidentalis there in the front yard. Which only grows in Zones 3-7, which narrows it down for you “Where the hell is Milford” types.

  2. I swear. Is this not a hidden haiku?

    I really do hate
    To miss the practices for
    Seven on seven

  3. Apparently, Art Standish is a seasonal creature. Like the swallows to Capistrano, he has returned to perform his parental duties: nagging his son about football.

  4. That’s not a hidden haiku, it’s an explicit one…

    I’ll bet the kids found all that unopened Billy Beer next to the dumpster behind PUB. They clean out the walk-in fridge once every 35 years…

  5. So, what’ll it be, o my droogies? Gil and Mimi may be headed for a “serious” golf adventure (what, Mimi commits to the LPGA? Or on the course, she meets a filmmaker who wants to do a piece on the softball season Whigrub largely ignored?) and True is off to high school nirvana, The George Blanda Memorial Quarterback Camp, run by an insecure and defensive Daryle Lamonica. Meanwhile the True-Boo thing develops (ignore Jarrod’s manic eyes in yesterday’s strip- he is not Boo’s type and she would clean the floor with him at need.) And we have the football season itself in development via True-less 7 on 7. I for one think False will contribute some sort of stink bomb along the way.
