    The art in today’s strip reminds me of Bill Watterson. I wish that guy hadn’t hung it up after Calvin and Hobbes.

    Last time I settled for a willing person was the last straw.

    Being single is nothing to be ashamed of. It doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with her.

    Being of a certain age and seeing that comment coming from a character of a certain age, Pelican, I’d say it’s saying that it’s definitely about willigness, but not in the other person…

    For once Evie gives really bad advice. A guy might be willing to marry her but possess nothing worth having. I’d ten billion times rather be alone than marry some loser.

    I have to agree with the rest of the comments. There are several women I know that are over 50 and are well adjusted single people with goods friends, a close family, and are happy at their workplace.
    I have always said that it is better to be a happy single than an unhappy married.

    Shoot! I tried that…twice. It’s my only real regret in life. I vowed that I would only remarry one that I picked…and I’ve been single for the last 20 years.

    I prefer being single, but sometimes … Last night Mother’s friend talked about being a great-grandmother. Mother got that sad look in her eye wishing she were a grandmother. I didn’t say anything, but felt like crud.

    Aww…you shouldn’t feel like crud. Everyone has different paths. If Mom really wanted to be around babies that bad, she could give some volunteer time or something. Babies are alot of responsibility, not everyone should have them!

    so far, the relationships I’ve had with the “willing” have been really, really terrible. I’d rather be single than do that ever again.

    I’ve got you beat by 18 years but now comes the day to day fear of losing him. Is it better to have “loved and lost”?

    Is Evvie on something? That remark is decidedly unlike her.

    I agree with most of you. Heck, I’m 75 and will never remarry. I see the man I love when I can (I moved hundreds of miles away for better weather, while I could still have a job) and if we ever break up, I never want anyone else. I can live with my memories.
