This Week in Milford

And I get paid to write this blog..

I normally put up a color strip but I’m honoring Marjie’s platinum-blond hair by posting the B/W version today, which does it justice better then the yellow hair in the color version. Nobody this side of Donald Trump looks good with yellow hair. But back to the strip:

Its just shocking that my hero Marjie Ducey is asking such personal questions for a newspaper story. Is the Milford Star that hard up for readers that we need to know all this non-sports stuff? There’s a rag paper in my area called the Star that writes bogus stories about celebs, and I only read it while waiting to check out of the supermarket. Is that who Marjie is employed with now? I thought her appearing in 7 straight panels (gotta  be a record) was cause for celebration, but she’s gonna get all the dirt before anyone else and break this romance out into the open. I’ve read high school sports stories since 1978, and not one story was about how a player shot free throws OR who he/she was dating! Kenzie should take the 5th and say Ok Marjie, we’ve had  enough chit-chat for one day, why dont you go back to your cubbyhole at that paper and stay there till Gil  needs you for the baseball lineup.

One other minor detail – P2 Marjie pulls down her glasses and peers at Kenzie – I thought people that wear glasses all  the time and not just for reading dont do that, since they cant see well enough without them whats the point? I would know, having worn them full-time until lasik surgery some years ago. Marjie’s eyewear adds to her attractiveness anyway, so no reason to take em off in this strip.  I suppose the artist couldve drew a couple lines on Kenzie’s cheek for an ‘almost blushed’ look but nah, too much work.

Our song today features what Marjie would see without her glasses if Kenzie really blushed.



  1. “None of your beeswax. Got any basketball questions, blondie?”

  2. Asking rude questions is really Marty’s job, but I suppose Rubin thinks it would be a bit weird for Marty to be asking a high school girl about her love life. Enter Marjie.

  3. Maybe it’s Holly Dobbs in disguise. Was that her name ?

  4. I was playing around with some software and made this meditative collage of Marjie images over the years:

  5. Marjie: “I get paid to ask rude questions.”
    Kenzie: “I’m confused about how you get paid at all. What other town this size has two alleged adults covering sports at one high school?”

  7. So pleased to see the 2:45 Mar-Juicy video was properly tagged on the YouTubes as: Category: Autos & Vehicles. So you’d take her out for a spin then?
