This Week in Milford

December 18, 2015

Thanks for the memories..

Love Mimi’s position in P1; try that at home with 1 arm bearing your whole weight and see how long you can hold it there.  Most people cross their arms when theyre leaning like that, so her angle is rather extreme, no? And for December her top is pretty summery; I’m sure when they get the heating bill Gil will make her pay it. Most fridges I know open to the right, the Thorps opens to the left. Gils getting a cold one but continuing to look in the fridge, for what?

Holly’s leaving town tomorrow?? What about 2nd semester of Shakespeare class? Whos gonna teach it on such short notice? Thanks a lot, you come back to teach and bolt town after your other gig falls through. That sure is a role model for your students.

Finally, another miss for Marty on the female front; one of these days he’ll just start pounding his head against his wooden enclosure at the stadium and knock himself senseless.

Bob Hope will close out Hollys career in style as only he can in this Christmas season:



  1. It’s not just the second semester. Given that the football season just ended, there’s gotta be a couple weeks left in the story-time first semester, right? Final exams, term papers?

    So where is Holly’s mystery destination? Nominees, anyone?

  2. “Gil is getting a cold one but continuing to look in the fridge, for what?” uh duh, he’s counting brews … Does he need to send Mimi out for more or what…
    The look on Marty’s face is accurate–have seen that look in my mirror back in the day…

  3. I’m guessing Gil’s holding that cold one but looking into the fridge for something better: “What’s this 3.2 baloney? We’ve got to have some real beer in here somewhere!”

  4. John S. Walters: “So where is Holly’s mystery destination? Nominees, anyone?”…. my guess is the Willamette Valley, home of folks who invented ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’, not slick willie… Out there one will find fugitives from justice & people who just want to disappear. Maybe Holly will find Elvis, who recognizes her… If Elvis is alive, he probably spends a lot of time in the Willamette Valley… And this is the world of comics eh…

  5. Marty’s 2000 Yard Stare almost makes up for the months of ennui we’ve all experienced.

    Trigger Warning: the linked art by Tom Lea FREAKED me out as a youngster – the piece entitled “The Price” especially so.

  6. Well, in the spirit of the season, I hope Marty got a free reacharound for what it’s worth…

  7. My fridge opens to the left. Pretty sure the one at our last place did, too, so it’s not unheard of.
    On the other hand, the choice of which way the fridge door opens is usually made so that it opens away from the main part of the kitchen, so you can move back and forth between the fridge and the prep area without having to walk around said door. It’s tough to tell, but there appears to be a lot of kitchen between Gil and Mimi. Maybe they spent a crapload on a big kitchen remodel, but ran out of money just before getting a fancy refrigerator.

  8. Mine is a split, with the fridge to the right and the freezer door to the left. Works fine. as far as room. Some fridges have the freezer section on top.
