    Good morning™, all!

    So, Mr. Chandler likes to swim early in the morning, when there are no witnesses — I mean no crowds — on the beach. That’s pretty convenient for certain parties.

    Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy wealthy and wise? It depends…

    Maybe this is just me, but it would feel more logical if he had said “I like a solitary swim.” Maybe the point of the sentence isn’t to show that he likes swims to be early, but just swimming at all, and the emphasis should be on “swim” and not “early”, but still.

    Dekko apparently must have pretended to give in to Paul’s demands and comping this trip was a “peace offering”.

    Panama City. Near where Steve and Johnnie from WGN radio Chicago have a home. “Daddy” Warbucks as already made a guest appearance, will Steve and Johnnie?

    Either Paul is going to take a swim in the waters at the beach and some figure in scuba gear will take him out or an accident at poolside could take place. Art has set the wheels in motion. The guy is living on borrowed time.

    I would think that out of the jurisdiction would be the ideal outing for an offing. I wonder if Sue is up for a little comped vacay too.

    Don Bagert (above) is probably right about how this came about, but why must we (the readers) constantly guess what is happening? We saw Paul tell Dekko he wanted more money, and we saw Dekko’s negative reaction. Now Paul is on vacation, apparently on Dekko’s dime, with no logical explanation. We know that Dekko has made arrangements to do away with Paul, but how did he convince Paul that everything was ok? “You just confronted me with a demand for a bigger cut, and I’m obviously not happy with your demand, but here, Paul. Take my credit card and have yourself a fine old time in Florida.” And Paul doesn’t wonder “What just happened?” If Mike hadn’t wasted so many panels on Fuzzy Cons and fuzzy slippers, he might have had space to tell a logical, understandable narrative without so many gaps.

    Sticking my head up briefly to say I’m still entangled in major plumbing repairs to my house. Hopefully in another week or so I’ll be back here regularly again (though I must confess a deep and abiding apathy for the current storyline is also a factor in my absence).

    1-MEANWHILE, at the Bed And Bug motel…

    2-PERKY PEARS: Hee hee. Your card was denied, Mr. Chandler. Don’t be embarrassed though – we get that a lot at the Bed And Bug!

    3-PAUL: Try this one, Perky. Never mind that it’s not in my name. Mr. uh…McCartney… said I could use it.

    PERKY: No worries. We get that a lot here as well! Hee hee.

    PAUL: Well, you’ve certainly earned your name Perky Pears!

    PERKY: Because I’m so bubbly? PAUL: Yeah, sure. Let’s go with that…

    Did Chandler jump over the counter? In panel 3 he looks like he’s right on top of that poor receptionist.

    Meanwhile, in Florida, Paul Chandler still lives (at least for a while)! The perky (as firestrike1 dubbed her in his Reply to DiamondD, above n.b., I’m gonna assume that this is not “Diamond Dallas Page”]) clerk-y Blondie is giving him the royal treatment, and unwittingly setting Paulie up as an easy target for the Hitman, whatever his chosen instrument for dealing Death may be.

    This whole Florida escapade seems like a waste of money by Dekko the gecko, (trips to Florida for both PC Paul and the Kypper, plus Surf and Swim accommodations for PC or both—I foresee no refunds), unless distancing himself from the hit counts for so much. Maybe Mike has something up his sleeve that requires this locale?

    Off to the happy and soothing resort where he will ‘accidentally’ lose in the much touted Be Like Fonzie and Jump The Shark event.
