    I think he needs to start leaving out the last sentence of his stories.

    I wonder how he much he will enjoy boiled bacon and cold overcooked brussel sprouts for dinner all week.

    John, watch out your tongue or Elly will give you the dagger stare.

    When will John learn to stop while he’s ahead?

    So Anysia, you think Elly’ll put John (exclusively, no sharing misery) on the “Andie Fox” diet?

    (Andie Fox: mum on Foxtrot, could euphemistically be termed “Edison of veggies” since she has over 10,000 failed ways to prepare them).

    And, as PatriceK stated: you were doing fine till you made that last comment John–why’d you blow it all?

    I don’t know for me, that’s not a trouble comment. That’s honest.

    That’s right. He should’ve shut up after the second panel. Now she’s gonna say, “And what’s wrong with my mother’s looks??????”

    There are some posters at the FBorFW site, that think that Lynn’s personal unhappiness with the way her life turned out, is spilling out into her strip. Making the strip have a slightly bitter taste, with Elly often unhappy with her lot at home, and John with his foot and mouth disease. What is your opinion on this take of the strip? True or not?

    On another note…there is a new FBorFW book coming out in March. It’s Liz’s wedding and the strips till the very end.

    For summerdog: until 1990, the general direction of the strip was what actually happened in Lynn’s home (meaning her husband actually committed a similar faux-pas).

    We Sagie archers are pretty good at redirecting those stray arrows that escape from our big mouths so easily (and so often) by talking (okay, our way out of things. Good luck John!

    John hasn’t seen what Elly’s mother looks like when she’s REALLY old yet. He’d better close his mouth now before Elly closes it for him!
