This Week in Milford

December 31, 2018

Odd Bounces Sometimes


It’s the last day of the year. It’s time for predictions. What will happen in 2019? Maybe Bobby will be crushed by a falling billboard. Gil and Marty will finally profess their love for one another and open a bed and breakfast near the Old Mystic Seaport. Dr. Pearl will replace Gil with coach Kaz and the sports programs at MHS will all be replaced by mixed martial arts. Kenzie Hanley will come back to coach the girls team after Mimi takes her divorce settlement and splits town for good. Kaz and Kelly will tie the not and then Kelly will suddenly decide to take a job in Charleston and never be heard from again.

An alternate prediction: Marty’s mother will finally kick him out of the basement and in order to afford rent at Milford’s famous Dumpy Apartments, Marty will also have to serve as an onsite property manager as well as street level pharmacist.

That’s all I got for now. Anybody else?

So our billboard guy is relishing the Milford loss because he’s rather be vindicated in his Gil Must Go stance than see his team prevail. He’s a true fan!

Happy New Year to all!

    I LOVED your predictions, especially Marty’s “Get a Life” living conditions. I wonder if Marty’s mom wears a bathrobe like Chris Elliott’s parents. God, Chris Elliott was HILARIOUS. But God no, I can’t see Marty delivering papers on his bicycle the way Chris did. No way.

  2. One of the few political comics that’s stuck these many years was a cartoonist surveying a large field running for governor. Evelyn Murphy’s bio – “I’ll never have to draw eyes again!”
    When the eyes turned to black blobs it was also a step in the death of Apartment 3G

  3. […] anymore, so that’s not a factor. He gave Milford the lead at Danbury, but a deflection and an odd bounce gave the Mad Hatters the win.  All we have to go on is one panel in a strip set in the pre-season […]
