    Have a care in icy lair when plotting plans so vile

    Vortex fancies himself shrewd, knowing all the while

    Slipping drugs to innocents indeed beyond the pale

    Try to mess with Honeymoon is one sure way to fail.

    The granddaughter of Tracy, she has powerful friends

    Slip her dope you dreadful mope, and weep for how it ends.

    Bribery has influence, though locked up in a cage

    Try to mess with Crystal and then watch the misfit rage.

    Austin, too, is someone who shall not sit idly by

    So much catching up to do, won’t fear to do or die.

    An ice cream truck shall bring bad luck should Mysta figure out

    Thugs are harming Honeymoon. Beware electric clout.

    Era of Chimera means the Polar man may melt

    Dare impair dear Honeymoon, reprisal shall be felt.

    Good morning™, recruiters and DNA testers!

    So… an old ice cream truck is part of the plan? Interesting!

    I love the compactness of the address on the envelope.

    I wonder if Lafayette ends up ‘saving’ the girls. I hope this doesn’t end with an extremely short relationship for him and Crystal.

    Creepiest Ice Cream truck I’ve ever seen! Plus if Polar had any sense, he’d steer clear of any person connected with Dick Tracy. Oh, yeah, he has the Willy the Fifth’s clone as a weapon!

    Good morning™, 31 flavors “ice cream” vendors

    What kid can resist such sugary goodness especially when it comes with a soundtrack ?

    Man !  I get the feeling they may not be related despite what Bribery said about U.C.‘s affections. We never know if she had a one time outside fling that birthed Crystal into being. I hope I am wrong because it looks more and more that Laf and her would be a good fit. Even if they turn out not to be related but only happen to have similar earmarks of appearance they would each fill a void in the other’s life !

    Neat logo on the truck !

    Barbara Jo & The Hippie Buckaroos played an hour and a half show for the old “war horses” [Saturday] and some of them were rockin’ out to the tunes with feet moving and applause. My friend’s boy and his wife were so grateful for the gathering done on behalf of “The Grizzly” and he was all smiles for having such worthwhile music and company. He is always very happy when family comes in and is pretty pleased when it is just me.

    Later, in preparation for supper, Leo and Janet (staff) came to the room to get him ready for hoisting out of bed and into the chair using an overhead electric hoist. Leo said “close the door” to which the order was followed. I stood facing the wall while they held the bottle up for a pee, something the old boy is doing more of lately than to simply soil the Depends. My old paisan and I talked long while the two people who came up with me were out in the hall talking with some of the other residents. I don’t go to see just one but invariably get “tangled up” with some others. An all we can eat at the Golden Coral came on our way home.

    “Crystal Bribery” sounds like either a crime or an elicit substance.

    Or a soft drink. ✨

    Now that I’ve read everyone else’s comments (to date), I have one regarding today’s “Crimestoppers” panel:

    Another thing to consider is NEVER buying your child garments that have his/her name on them. All a child abductor needs to do it see the garment and he knows his/her name and can call out to the child, and the child might believe that the CA knows him/her.

    Plus, if your child owns a bicycle, NEVER buy a “license plate” with his/her name on it. I’ve seen those things in WalMart, and I can’t believe they’re still on the sotre’s inventory. The product should be banned everywhere.

    Crystal gets spiked ice cream, becomes hooked, is told the price of more drugs is getting Honeymoon hooked as well. To be continued…

    Oops, that should be “store,” and not “sotre”. Even I am not immune to the typo bug! ;o)

    Regarding the crimestoppers tip: It’s also not a good idea to put your home address in your GPS. A car thief would not only know where you live but also have your garage opener remote. You can imagine what happens next.Instead, use the address of your local police station. Your GPS will still get you back into familiar territory but won’t aid and abet a criminal.

    So is Crystal now living with the Tracys? Or is she just having her mail forwarded there? I thought she lived in the vicinity with a foster family, according to this strip:

    Ummm…what the hell are they going to put in the ice cream? They used to sell all of the drugs that are illegal now over-the-counter in the early part of the 20th century, and the entire population didn’t turn into massive drug addicts desperate for their next fix. Heroin is highly-addictive but usually isn’t in an edible form. I get what they’re trying to do with the storyline, but this is quite a stretch as it would take weeks to do that. All the while no one is going to notice it considering who she hangs out with all the time plus now with her Dad?

    Any letter that just has ‘city’ as the address should be returned to sender until they learn how to address correctly. As should any letter with just an intersection (9th & Elm).

    That is one sorry-looking “ice cream” truck that Piotr is using in his Nefarious Plot to get Crystal hooked on drugs and then manipulate her as he wills, whether to entrap Honeymoon also, or to lure someone—Tracy?—into an ambush, or whatever. Nefarious Plots are usually grandiose far beyond the villain’s actual capability. Clearly, PV has had little or no experience with the forces that run Tracyville, both the Good and the Bad, and he could be courting trouble with both. Mr. Bribery might try to help Crystal, in his way, just as Tracy and team would in theirs….
