    Happy Anniersary, Robb! Thanks for the stories and the jokes! Although I am not sure if Joe’s Mom driving constitutes a joke or a horror story…

    Not sure what the anniversary is, but I grew up with these comics back in the ‘90s when I was a kid. Whatever the 34 years is about, it’s well deserved!

    You’ve been a regular part of my morning almost since the beginning (the strip’s, not mine!). Thanks!

    I was still living in Philly at the time, so I got to follow almost from the beginning – or at least whenever the Inquirer picked it up! <3

    They are the most loving couple, parents and grandparents that I’ve ever seen.

    Why is Sunny shown as “30”? She was in the first week of the strip.

    So Sunny 30, Mortimer 8, the Twins 18, is that it? JS for JumpStart 34 years. Any other hidden messages? But I find it hard to believe that the strip was 4 years without Sunny. I have the backstory of how Joe and Marcy met in high school, but I thought that was a flashback after the strip was released.

    Happy Anniversary, & thank you for this wonderful comic strip. I started reading it in it’s earliest days, then moved to an area where it wasn’t distributed just after Sunny was born. When I finally found it again, there were four kids! Thank goodness for the Internet & Gocomics now.

    The Dallas Morning News used to carry this strip but dropped it many years ago. I hunted it down on GoComics and have loved reading it ever since. Thank you for such a good strip!

    Robb, you are a keen observer of human nature in all our realness, quirks, goofiness, et al, otherwise your strip would never have lasted this long. I still like Marcy’s first hair, not straightened. Been reading you for whenever the Patriot News had picked you up. Keep it up for as long you are able.

    I remember Joe and Marcy back when they were in an apartment, with that irascible little old lady neighbor. I always wondered whatever happened to her.

    Hate to burst a bubble—-but I believe the Waldorf-Astoria has been shuttered for a t least three years.

    A Chinese firm bought it with the intention of making it half-residential—-and promptly went bankrupt.

    Joe’s folks might enjoy having the whole hotel to themselves—-until they realize there’s no bellhops or food service.And then Jack Nicholson shows up….

    Thank you for bringing the wonderful Cobb family to our family.

    My grandfather was a photo engraver at the NY Herald. He did the plates for the comics (and worked overnight), so comic strips have always been a big part of my life.

    I read your daily and Saturday strips in “Newsday”, but since they do not carry you in their Sunday papers, I come here to to read them!
