    A working vacation in Arlo and Janis’ future? Hmmmmm…

    Well it is getting into warmer weather. Beat feet to the beach ahead of the big Memorial Day crowds. Just need to get someone to look after Luddie the cat. We gone!

    Could be, could be you’ve hit the bullseye, rusty gate. Hope so. I have really enjoyed the strip for years but when Gene, Mary Lou & Meg are involved I find that I have an unexpected level of anticipation where I can’t wait until the next day’s strip. Hope LP doesn’t quit the strip for a very long time.

    They’re looking at each other because it’s the same argument Arlo and Janis have had.

    Gene – you just smile and nod, then go to the beach.

    i agree with you Barry about seeing what will happen with Gene’s new adventure. i side with him on this issue. perfectionists and type A personalities can be tough on those of us who are more relaxed about things. i know! from experience. hope Mary Lou can be flexible or she will push Gene away. a relationship has to have give and take. he should wait for her call. if it never comes then she never cared for him. if he goes back without that call she will expect to always get her way.

    I agree with Barry Hoskings and Paul Roese, I look forward to the semi-annual Gene plot since I returned to the strip back in 2008! I also agree with Doctor Toon about not being able to relax. I have to force myself to walk away!

    There’s a difference between needs to be done and Has to be done.
    The living room needs new paint.
    The leaky hot water heater has to be replaced!

    I’ve had trouble truly relaxing since becoming a parent several years ago. Add in the business needs, and she’s primed to always be working on something.

    Hmmm… they’re worried their son is lazy, and Mary Lou is the one who’s got the right idea. Get to work, boy!

    What are parents for except to at least advise their only kid. No one needs attachment parenting but something like this should have been made known to Gene – that a young woman with a young child may not be at the point in her life of stopping to relax. She may feel the need to prove something to herself and others.

    Sigh, I think this will be a long arc.
    When Gene enters, Humor exits this strip.

    …they should appeal to Mary Lou on behalf of Meg – some of the best memories and best times of childhood are when they are at the beach, or the park, or the lake, etc, etc. – Mary Lou is going to turn around and that kid will be off to college…there is ALWAYS something that “needs” doing, but the kid is only a kid once! That’s the kind of logic that might work here…
