    Argy… I could imagine that sassymm feels it is “fair” to invite Gunther (and a date? Bernice?) because he made the bridesmaid dress.

    .

    But, another possibility is that sassymm’s use of “fair” was just a way of imprecisely saying that he/she was glad that Gunther and Bernice were there.

    .

    For my own manner of thinking…. I am going to assume that for any of Luann’s friends that end up being at the wedding….. that those friends have somehow over the years made an impression on Brad (and possibly Toni) that makes the couple consider them their friends as well. And, even if we have not seen it on a comic, my own presumption is that there is some backstory to explain it that occurred behind the scenes sometime in the past.

    Nice looking crowd of folks. I am glad things seem to still be running smoothly. For me, however, today seems simply like a “filler” day even when compared across the whole series of wedding panels we have had the last few weeks. Today’s effort is not overly interesting or engaging for me. I am looking forward to getting back to the more exciting (to me) aspects of Luann. I am feeling a bit “wedding-ed out”.

    Night-Gaunt49…. in regards to Shannon…. I actually have a sort of “hybrid” opinion of her….. I do think she is “bratty” sometimes…. and I do also think that she has shown a lot of growth and development through nurturing. Overall… I feel she now falls into the spectrum of a pretty normal, average kid in most regards.

    .

    Most kids do have their “bratty” moments. But that is, at least IMO, pretty normal.

    The music line that Greg has shown is interesting to me:

    .

    I am not sure if Greg is representing a real musical introduction or interlude… or if he just randomly put down musical notes in some fashion.

    .

    The fact that he has a low “G” (if this is treble cleft) suggests to me that this is a real introduction/interlude because it is a more purposeful sort of note (being below the staff) than random notes would usually be drawn.

    .

    But, in sight reading of this line… it does not seem that it is a typical musical introduction/interlude…. at least not a typical one for most song types. It is instead mostly a simple scale progression with a few other notes thrown in. And, the two F# notes at the beginning would (in contrast to the F naturals elsewhere) give an atypically “eerie” sort of vibe to the line.

    .

    So, I would be curious about what others think….. is the line something Greg purposefully wrote out in some fashion (with meaning that I am not aware of)… or is it simply a cluster of notes that Greg somewhat randomly put down?

    I also do like that it appears that all the males in the wedding party (other than Brad, the groom) are wearing black bow-ties. This makes IMO Brad’s blue bow-tie more special, and is in keeping with the blue theme expressed in the maid-of-honor dress, flower girl dress, and Toni’s accents on her dress. Very nice. Another tipping of my hat to the excellent coloring detail by Sheriff!

    Well, I am glad to see that Jonah has been successful in his responsibilities to his sister in this regard. It shows, IMO, that although he is a flake (self admitted now, BTW)…. that he definitely is not all bad.

    .

    Even though I doubt it, perhaps this will be the beginning of a transformation for Jonah into a more responsible person/adult/father? Again, I do doubt it, for if Greg keeps him true to form, most “flakes” tend to stay flaky like dandruff…. even with the very best intentions. But, having the intentions is definitely a valuable thing even if they are only rarely successful. Until this point I have had the opinion that Jonah did not typically have the intention of doing the “right” things, but instead mostly was just doing whatever felt like “his own thing” at any moment. So, for me, my change in my perceptions of his intentions…. seems like growth and development for him.

    Actually, I DO find Mr. Spaetzel to be an EXCELLENT role model for students. Is Mr. Spaetzel perfect? No, but no one is. But, as a character, he is a IMO a pretty damn good role model:

    .

    1. He is by all accounts, very kind, considerate, and thoughtful as a Principal.

    .

    2. He always shows great care for his work and his co-workers.

    .

    3. He is accepting of differences in people, but at the same time has been very good at getting people who have differences to work together well.

    .

    In regards to the kids comment about the book bag vs. coffee cup…. the way I am reading Mr. Spaetzel’s chagrin at himself, I am thinking he must feel he should be presenting a more “scholarly” image in some way? Not sure, but that is what I am assuming he is meaning. But, the reality is, he is a learned fellow, and as Principal, he has a wide array of books in his office, I am certain. He does not need to be carrying around a bookbag of books, because he has a permanent office (unlike the students). He has also, a briefcase, where he likely stores paperwork and potentially books as well that he carts back and forth between school and home.

    .

    If he is feeling regret about his “role model” image because of the coffee cup, I am not really understanding why. There is no harm or foul in his having and enjoying coffee. Scholarly and non-scholarly folks the world over enjoy coffee.

    .

    So, from my perspective…. I think Mr. Spaetzel is being far too hard on himself! He is a good guy, a great Principal, and a real decent human being. These are all things that IMO make him a role model the kids SHOULD aspire to.

    Sheriff….. it is not said often enough….. but THANK YOU for your coloring work and care that you do on this comic! It is very well done and definitely enhances the fine line art!

    Mr. Gust did draw a very pretty wedding dress, and Greg has used it successfully with Toni.

    .

    However, today’s comic is about as interesting to me as watching an ice cube melt. Perhaps it is more a “female” thing and a lot of female readers will be more excited about today’s comic. Or, perhaps I am just an old, furry-faced curmudgeon and all the other readers of the comic will really be excited about today’s comic. I do not really know.

    For me…. the dress is indeed very nicely drawn. I commend the artist(s). I think both TJ and Brad look nice.

    .

    I am one of the folks, however, that does like the tradition (I do not think of it as as superstition) of the groom not seeing the bride in her gown until the ceremony. In my manner of thinking, it adds an additional touch of emotion and feeling. But, that is not to be here at Brad & Toni’s wedding. That is “ok”.

    .

    I am wondering what a whole week of strips will be like concerning the wedding this week?

    .

    Is there still some potential “drama” to occur, or was the wildfire, which was apparently fairly straight forward and quite successful the “drama”? To my read of things, if Greg suggested “drama” was going to occur as many of the regulars have stated…. the wildfire does not read to me as being “drama” in the way I would suspect Greg would mean. So, I am thinking there still will be a surprising aspect of the scenario that still goes dramatically wrong.
