All Summer In A Day

Filed under: Gil Thorp, golf, Mimi Thorp, What the hell is going on here? — nedryerson @ 5:53 am


The narration box is trying to play  a Jedi mind trick on us. Summer slides by. Look. Lemonade, Baby Golf, Town Park Beach. This Summer sure was a blast. Barry Bader Who?

It’s like the last three months of strips represented a time dilation. The spring plot was so rich that it had to be expanded so that the emotional impact wouldn’t be blunted. So summer by necessity had to be compressed into this.  Hope you enjoyed yourselves!

At least we got one more shout out to Kevin Pelwecki. How’s it goin, Kevin?

Enjoy your Labor Day. I guess the strike is over?



  1. Mimi going old school with the Etch a Sketch. I knew that Pelwecki name sounded familiar. How soon I forget. Been a long summer.

  2. Looks like master Bader is still with us–see panel 3….

  3. Panel 3 can’t possibly be Bader. The kid in the picture has friends.

  5. 😭😭😭. Goin great here ! Got word I’ll be developed as a character with a story line. Look for me at possibly SS on the football team who will have an “impact”. My nicknames Moose, that’ll probably come into play as well.

  6. Congrats, Kevin! Being a character in a Gil Thorp strip is on my list of unachievable ambitions. I look forward to seeing you play, uh, shortstop? for the Mudlarks. Baseball’s my thing, don’t know much about football.

    I’ve never been so glad to see a Gil Thorp storyline end. I quit reading months ago.

  7. “Strong safety,” the guy in the secondary who shows up in time to smack a fool’s brain cells around.

    Here’s hoping for a nice irrelevant storyline this fall. We’re off to a good start with a truly loathsome Freak Finger in panel 3.

  8. Either Gil developed a skin rash that left part of his cranium in search of hair or Pluto has been
    redesignated a planet by a committee of scientists assigned by the UN Security Council, the proof shining on Gil’s head. Just another day in Paradise(or Milford, same difference).
