    Ma should really be thinking about a nice old folks home, where the meals are served three times a day.

    My mom always left the coffeepot on. Or thought she did, one time my dad took it with us. Just as well, he liked coffee, and those motel coffeepots were lousy.

    Eek….. I think Marg is right.


    Actually, as these strips are re-used in no particular order, we’ve already seen her after this, living in a senior residence.


    In fact, I’m thinking she might have moved there right after this trip.


    It wouldn’t have been much trouble to move her then….
    cos when they got back to what was left of her house, they wouldn’t have found much that was still usable in the debris from the gas leak and explosion.

    I think you are right. We’ve seen Ma in a “home” before. But I don’t think Ma is stupid, maybe just mean. She nicely brings out the Ace of Trumps zinger—sort of a Maggie Smith performance—and revels in the consternation. Her goal in life is to torment Burl, the jerk of a HS football player who ruined her baby Joy who was on her way to great things.

    Yea blow out the pilot lights for a few hrs. Then light a match to relight them… That makes a lot of sense doesn’t it? She has an old stove because a new one costs $$ Yup a home is what she needs,maybe find a nice old gentleman to assist her.

    Most coffee makers have an auto shutoff for dolts like this. And seeing as how it’s probably a 6 cupper that was “liberated” from a motel 6 it should have the shutoff. Looks they’re on a “raiding party” right now; Burl must need a new shower cap or fifty.

    I did that once, my mother was next door and sent me to turn off the stove. I was about 5, Told her what I did. Didn’t know she could run that fast. I agree, I think Ma is “having them on” she has a wicked sense of humor!

    I think Joy freaked Burl out and he slammed on the brakes. Joy’s hair is in front of the rear-view mirror and that pink spot on her cheek might be where her face is pressed against the windshield. They’re not wearing seat belts. Then Burl realized how far from home they are and decided to keep driving.
