    Oh dear. Here we go with the Val and Phil need to get married thing again.
    And I don’t think shes digging at Wally, she knows what a great guy he is for Joan… she remembers Joan’s ex-husband!!!

    I agree. I think Val is suggesting that Wally is better than many other men.

    You’ve got that right, ‘Glendakan’. There are very, very few ’Wally’s’ around.

    She’s complimenting him… most guys (sorry guys), wouldn’t be so thoughtful, or mindful of what their wives are doing on a daily basis, especially if they are stay-at-home moms.

    It’s really not fair for those people that pop the question during the holiday’s. Legally one shouldn’t because if the engagement is called off the ring could be considered a gift if done during other times the ring is to be returned to the giver. And second if the relationship doesn’t work out, well it kinda ruins the holiday for those people.

    And while all this is going on, Max is climbing all over Wally. There’s no greater vote of confidence than the love and trust of a 2 year old. Go Wally!

    And now they’re discussing the trip in front of Max? So much for secrecy!
    (Yes, I know Max barely talks. Believe me, he will talk in the most inappropriate moment.)

    The ring can be considered a ‘gift’ at any time of the year. It is symbolic to return it to the giver as a commitment that the relationship in that form is over.

    My dad is awesome. I’ll be lucky if I marry someone just like him. But preferably younger, of course.

    I don’t think she was being jealous, just pointing out that some guys WOULD do a lot less & consider themselves generous for taking their wives out for a McDonald’s dinner. I think she was letting him know that he is doing a great thing, not a “least” thing.

    I guess I am taking the strip wrong way myself. I know my own husband would not do anything that extravagant and I would not expect it. I have a great man.
