    REX MORGAN: I hope that contract Rex and June are signing has no trick clauses. I don’t know how a five-year-old can be expected to keep her part.

    MARY WORTH: I was just informed that there are 2 extra panels to MW if one opens the “Buy a Print.” That seems more devastating than Shannon’s quandry (sp?) but,a s Mary says, this may be a pattern Aggie’s social ineptness.

    JUDGE PARKER: Sam may have some input on the situation…I hope we find out what it is, before we go back to the story arc on the cruise ship.
    MARY WORTH: I am inclined to think the spa is at fault if they had a “Sharing Circle” without a licensed therapist.
    MARK TRAIL: Mark not only continues the dino lesson today, the strip gives us two links (Dinosaur Natl. Monument in CO/UT & Petrified Forest Natl. Park in AZ).
    ALLEY OOP (Gocomics): What a promising story! The Villa where Mary and Percy Shelley (& others) are staying looks just like the Villa Diodati manor close to Lake Geneva where Mary was inspired to write “Frankenstein.” Alley is shivering, and I was fascinated to learn that Switzerland’s cold and stormy summer of 1816 was due to dust in the upper atmosphere from a volcanic eruption in southeast Asia – temperatures dropped around the world. Apparently Doc knows something about that climatic change and that’s why he & Alley are time-traveling to Switzerland in 1816 for research purposes. Anyone wanting to follow this “electrifying” story can pick it up the recent beginning (Aug. 11). See the Villa Diodati in the Aug. 14 strip.

    ALLEY OOP, cont.: Thanks Teh, for your heads up re this story & also thanks JanCinLV for your A.O. comment yesterday. Here’s something more I found re the volcanic eruption that caused the climate changes back in 1816:
    The Tambora Volcano is in Sumbawa, Indonesia. Apparently its eruption in April 1815, was the largest on the planet in historic times. The massive eruption produced world-wide climatic effects and killed over 100,000 people (directly and indirectly). The current status of Tambora is “restless” and there have been recent alerts.

    Mandrake – “Mandrake gestures hypnotically.”
    Judge Parker – (Snore.)
    Katzenjammer Kids – Not near as good as Origins of the Sunday Comics.
    Mark Trail – I’ve been to Dinosaur National Monument and Petrified Forest. Both are very interesting places.
    Crankshaft – Three months? Their school district still gets three months?
    Flash Gordon – Oh, no! Secret Agent X-9 just got zzasked!
    Alley Oop – I’m one of the daily commenters in that forum.
    Rex Morgan – (Snore.)

    Mary Worth – So no murder mystery. Ho-hum. Why do we set ourselves up for disappointment time after time? We need Mary Worth to help us.
    The spa should stick with yoga and message.
    Judge Parker – The girls have been busy looking at Google maps, etc. Maybe Sam has done some research, too.

    Phantom: Not much here.

    Mary Worth: Time for Mary to step in and set everything right. It might take a few months but she will do it and everyone will live happily ever after.

    Rex Morgan: They better find out more of the details and have a lawyer check it out before signing anything. Why do some women always think that the husband must be older?

    Crankshaft: This is one strip that I can’t get interested in. I find it very dull.

    Alley Oop: I agree with your A. O. comment back to Estrelita Phillips on 8/11, and I thought your A.O. comment re the writer’s group today was well put!

    Your comment on Rex Morgan made no sense to me until I clicked Buy a Print and saw the first 2 panels. Maybe she always thinks of doctors as being older, gray hair, etc. All my doctors are much younger than I.
    I recently had to have a tooth extracted and each specialist I went to looked younger than the last one. You’d want them to be past junior high.

    Mary I have to agree with Florchi that the spa is at fault here for offering what amount to therapy sessions without a licensed therapist. Simple solution is for Mary to go to the management and set the record straight. It certainly isn’t Shannon’s fault she was put into a potentially volatile situation for which she is untrained and unqualified.

    Thank you, on both counts.
