    I was trying to follow the links posted yesterday about Gene and Mary Lou. It took a while, but I finally found the strips from 1993 where they first met. We can’t go back that far here, but we can go back to when Gene meets her again years later.
    Look up June 12 – July 5,1997 and Aug. 11 – Sept. 6, 2008.
    (I figure most everybody has already found these, but I wanted to post these dates just in case it would help someone.)
    Cheers, y’all!

    I know Sunday strips are usually separate from the ongoing story arc, but I really wish the wedding could be in the
    big Sunday funnies for us to save.
    Anyway, I’m so looking forward to this!

    I think I got my wedding dress at JC Penney for $20.
    OMG, I just showed my age, didn’t I?

    Do we know where the wedding will take place? I’ve been assuming that it will be at the restaurant, (which I’ve just learned is called the Wha’s Up Dock.)
    Since they met on the beach, maybe they’ll have the ceremony there, with the party mostly indoors. A beach wedding could be very romantic, providing all the possible annoying variables don’t occur. (And, even if they do, so what?)
    The wild card possibility is the farm house. We haven’t seen it yet, have we? Still, the restaurant makes the most sense.
    We’ll just have to wait and see. Won’t be long now. :)

    My daughter and son in law were married in Nags Head on the Outer Banks, beach weddings are cool and dad gets to wear shorts!

    I can’t wait for the wedding! I hope J.J. drags it out for a long time. Wouldn’t it be cool if he included some flashbacks to 1993, 1997 or 2008?

    She’s buying a dress in the exact same color as the tee-shirt she’s already wearing.

    I don’t know how to go back that far. Can you give instructions?

    My handsome groom and I got married halfway up a mountain, after hiking there. Our friends and family were in attendance and everyone wore hiking shorts (the bride and groom topped their outfits with Hawaiian shirts). We told everyone not to buy gifts and had a potluck reception. More than one guest said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to.

    Janis will be okay. She might even decide she likes the lack of unnecessary trappings.

    OK. When you click the left arrow to see earlier strips, you notice how the address at the top of your browser window changes to show the date? (For example: yesterday’s strip is )

    Just change that date to the date of the strip you want to see, and press Enter. You can go as far back as you want, as opposed to using the arrows, which only let you go back 14 days without a subscription.
