    WTF? In what locker room would someone say “heck” instead of “hell” or something more, um, forceful?

    Is this the last we’ll see of Tru(e)? if so, he had quite a run. He first appeared on July 2, 2014, so that would make it 743 real days (2 years, 12 days for the math challenged) that he’s been in our lives. Not sure what that is in MIlford time since our Thursday is their Monday, but it has to be close to that since he first appeared in the summer when the football team was about to start 7 on 7s. We’re not quite back to that in Milford, but it should be close.

    So I’m in Ted’s Bulletin on Saturday night — great milk shakes; if you haven’t tried them, do — and they’ve got TVs on the walls showing 50s and 60s shows. Leave it to Beaver came on and took me back in time to when I thought that was the best show on the air. It made me appreciate your reference to Ward Cleaver.

    I started to read Gil Thorp because it was about sports, not for the life lessons. I only appreciated those later as an adult.

    M.C. Escher designed the staircases.

    Is that Sally “the Hairdresser” Maglie?

    That aisle seems barely wide enough for two carts to pass. I too hate grocery stores with narrow aisles.

    In a world where Rubin pretends the Thorps never had kids, it’s possible that Boo’s accident never really happened either. Think Bobby Ewing on Dallas. So, I’m starting a Boo Gone Missing Count. We last saw her on June 7, so today is Day 13. On second thought, I’m not looking for another thing to count. I’ll just let it go at 13.

    Del might be subject to the felony murder rule. If his drunk driving was a felony, and Boo’s death occurred in the course of it (which it did), he could be charged with murder.

    In one episode, they said the G in Maynard G. Krebs stood for Walter.
