    So these two hang out at the golf course to find a new pair of rubes every day to weasel a few bucks? Industrial solvents must not be selling well.

    P2: Kenny Rogers has EEaS, Ea for Ears; never saw that before, Edgar. What is that supposed to signify?!? Or is he Uncle Martin’s nephew with his antennae just a bit lower?

    Yep, in all reality , I took over this solvent territory from some lush who was drunk and killed a girl right here in Milford. Know anyone interested in some solvent. Yeah I do ,try this guy called Mopman at the high school. His floors are the shinyest you’ve ever seen. Thanks for the lead.

    Industrial solvents? Isn’t that what Barry Bader’s homicidal reckless driving father did?

    Okay, we were left scratching our heads as the last arc began with someone leaving the library board and we wondered how in the heck it would tie in with a MHS storyline. How are our gamboling golfers going to tie in? Industrial Solvent Man looks too young to have a kid in high school.

    Carter Hendricks is Del Bader’s replacement? He has liquid dinners at Selasky’s like his predecessor? This industrial solvents company must give an ASSessment to qualify a successful territory manager candidate. So help me, if this chucklehead shouts Tally-Ho!, I’ll fall out of my chair.

    Idiocy is hereditary, as proven in P3.

    Haha….good one Rubin….I used to work for a company that manufactured industrial solvents and coatings and they fired one of the salesman because the guy was spending most of his time on the golf course even though he was reporting that he was out on calls….sort of like hendrix is.

    P1, Well, at least we got one B&W panel back.

    P2, Del Bader’s even more annoying replacement. Stay away from Thrifty-Mart, Heather!

    P3, The last time we heard the words “Burns” and “house” it was in reference to CK’s mom.

    In all reality , Dad are you disappointed that I took a low paying, no benefit job coaching for Coach Thorp. No honey I’m not, the key to happiness is low expectations . Just remember this !

    Let me see, young, good looking college grad with tons of jobs out there is ecstatic about getting an assistant high school coaching job that might not even pay. What am I missing?

    Did I miss something? Is Heather going to be a HS coach AND a reporter for The Milford Star? Isn’t that a conflict of interest waiting to happen?

    The doofus marks of Hendricks and Bucketman for the first time notice the scorecard.

    So, does Rubin have a weird thing for industrial solvents salesmen, or is it just a coincidence? Hendricks apparently replaced Del Bader, not at all relevant to the story or somehow it will tie back? Seems really odd to use that profession twice when pretty much every other writer would never pick it even once.

    P3, I can see Heather’s dad thinking, “Four years at a Big Ten school, and this is the only job she can get?”

    And speaking of jobs, your job is to read today’s Mopped Up Thorp – https://moppedupthorp.wordpress.com/

    OK, let’s save the next two months. Heather humbles Hendrix, love ensues, Gil approves, teenage angst abounds.
