    With four kids in the house, talking dirty was saying,“Shh!”
    (Shush me again, honey! ;)

    Well, maybe Gene has withheld from his parents the fact that they’ve already been enjoying the “benefits” of marriage. That’s not something you tell your parents. (Remember, Janice once referred to her as a hussy. Gene has probably kept their antics quiet.)

    Got married when the courthouse opened at 9 am. I had to go to work at noon, my wife at 3 pm.

    Congrats to all of you. You lived your own lives as you wanted . To allow interference from outside the relationship is a big mistake.

    I absolutely love this strip, and have from the beginning. It is so friendly, warm and real. Thanks JJ.

    Gene is going right back to work frying food in a restaurant. Something most of the population would consider drudgery. And Arlo is bursting with pride and convenience at such luck in this commercial age of grasping bridzillas and ungrateful children. He is going right back to hard physical, honest work. No thoughts, reflection or contemplation. What an ideal son! Did Arlo have any of these values? Nope. All Arlo does is contemplate his navel. He got an education and is working a cushy office job. Hopefully, if needed, Arlo will be there for Gene with well considered advice rather than some lazy off the cuff drivel and helpless shrugs. If someone is not well educated nowadays they can be vulnerable.

    Readers got a clue that Gene had been enjoying the benefits of marriage two years ago. Then again while he and ML were working on the house (after their spat).

    Remember their little tryst around the first of June…when they went skinny-dipping?

    Same thing happened to my sister, who married a teacher. Married on a late spring Saturday, overnighted at a nearby motel, Monday he was in class starting his master’s degree.
