Well there ya go Ned; Neal was thinking the same thing. Stocky Middle-Aged Industrial Solvents Sales Guy with Art Standish’s Face Del is gonna eventually expose some reason to be in Milford that will have a sporting angle. (“Today I sold some cleaning solvents to Central City Public Works to clean up the blood and cider spilled at the Winter Blast. They said some kid from Milford caused it. I s’pose she’s spilling blood in Milford, too.”)

Yay for the return of Boo Radley!

Boo for Boo becoming a close talker! Apparently a softball knuckleball is a thing. Whaddaya reckon has made Boo less ornery? The prospect of road trips to Winston-Salem?



  1. Has anybody EVER seen a catcher happy that the pitcher is throwing a knuckleball?

  2. With a traveling salesman named Del, I’m still hoping we’re in for a Planes Trains & Automobiles homage full of wacky hijinks.

  3. That’s no catcher in panel 3, that’s Chico Marx, hat and all. That’s a-right!

  4. I’m still trying to puzzle out “good movement on that knuckleball,” as well as why the catcher is pleased. Knuckleball pitchers make you look like you’re trying to corner a crazed squirrel.

  5. So before she answered the catcher’s question, Boo ran all the way to the plate and leaned in real close. Not at all disconcerting.

  6. Jeez – for being less ornery, Boo’s awfully intense. For poor Andrea’s sake, I hope she popped breath mint.

  7. Looks like Boo picked the wrong week to give up industrial solvents.
