Bernice: "Skype often, ok?"
Luann: "I didn't get you a goodbye gift!"

Not surprising… ;)
What are best friends for? (Bon voyage, Delta.)
They call me the ‘Junkman of Love’… cos I’m always takin’ out the treash…….(♫)
“Recycled Love”“Street Smarts”“Trash In Your Honor”“Who Can Refuse Refuse?”“Ardor For My Arbor”
or“It’s Not Easy Being Green” (♫)
A small rant here (OK, Very small): what happened to Bernice’s hair?! I like the “smooth” look better. Right now her hair looks like one big bunch of frizz…sorta like mine when the humidity is up… =-O
Great Job, Ladies!
Now Be SURE to Fedex ALL That accumulated Trash to Delta’s Dorm at Howard!!!
it was actually delta luann bernice
“A guilt based good deed!”
I know the strip is moving on with fresh characters, but having seen this group together for so long, sure will miss them. I hope they ‘drop in’ on occasion.
I always thought the clean-up “crew” usually picks up debris from country roads, and such… ;)
What a Mary Sue.
Hmmm, another “community organizer” goes to D.C.?
Thanks for the hint (WhitePages.com)! Perhaps now I might be able to find a friend or two! ;)
A fitting sendoff for the queen of social services :P
Once I left HS, I never went back. The reunion books sound interesting, though I am not sure if my HS even had any. Checked the HS out on the web, but no real answers there. I probably just need to keep on hunting in FB! =-O
My Irish Setter girl, Katie, is Loudly complaining that She wants to go to bed! Since I’ve found a library book about “Downton Abbey,” I’ll say ’Nite All for now! ;)-————————————————————————————-“I arise from dreams of thee In the first sweet sleep of night. When the winds are breathing low, And the stars are shining bright.”(Percy Bysshe Shelley, 1792-1822)
I’m guessing “new school hijinx” is next…..
We’ll miss Delta, who helped keep Bernice and Luann grounded in the real world. This farewell tour of duty on their adopted street is a good reminder, and, as Bernice said, Skype often, Delta! Goodness knows, Luann needs it!
The ending figures. :-)
I’m glad to here Bernice say, “Skype often…” which means, hopefully, that we’ll see more of Delta, later on.
So, what’s next? Return to TJ? Knute and/or Crystal? Advancement of the Brad/Toni wedding? Lu prepping for Pitts CC? Lu and Quill?
I know most of you want to get back to TJ, and so would I. But, with time running short in the summer, I’d think we’d need to do things that require resolution prior to the new school year starting. Thus, I think "Lu prepping for Pitts CC’ and/or Lu and Quill will be next. Perhaps, Knute and Crystal also. But, as previously stated, I’d like to see Knute and Crystal stick around. Knute could work at Weenie World, and Crystal, if not at Mooney or Pitts CC, could open her own “Goth Boutique.” And, if GE decides to develop Knute and Crystal (“Krystal”) :-) so much the better.
TJ’s resolution is not dependent on a calendar, nor are Brad & Toni advancing. So it can take longer than the school year starting. The former just has to happen before the latter. And Lu and Quill need not be resolved immediately either, as it might allow a vehicle to get Lu onto the Mooney campus to interact with the others for bits at a time. Perhaps, with the eventual goal of her transferring there.
I think Knute would be chivalrous enough to let her have the majority of the contraction. :-)
And, besides, it also matches the Southern eatery The Krystal
Knowing how receiving reimbursement(s) for insurance claims works – it will NOT be a quick fix for TJ.
I thought safety vests were supposed to be reflective orange.
yeh, but Krystal is just a White Castle ripoff.
Nah, I’ll stick with “Krystal.” Sounds better. :-)
“The Krystal” was pretty decent, back in the 60’s… regular burgers, etc. I think they became a White Castle clone only more recently.
That’s Delta, perfect to the end.
Way cool! This strip highlights both Luann’s self-centeredness and Delta’s other-centeredness. Their friendship enlarged both of them.*Here’s a switch for a reunion of the Three Musketeers— come holiday time, instead of Delta coming back to Pitts to visit, Lu and Bern go to DC to see the sights and take part in Delta’s unexciting life.
If this gets any more sugary, I’ll puke.
For those of you wondering when Bernice first switched from her “straight” hair, it was 3/1/1992
I notice Delta didn’t come up with that ’Adopt A Street ’ idea until she was conveniently on her way out of having to get HER hands dirty cleaning it up.( Cynical…ME? )
It isn’t just streets that need to be adopted. Creeks, streams, & rivers too.
I thought they adopted that street way back when.
“Mary Sue” is an idealized character, often but not necessarily, an author insert. And I agree; when Delta’s cancer went into remission, so did her development (IMHO).
And another character bites the dust – or gets erased as the case might be!
I was wondering if the strip will retire soon.
Huh, so she can do something without Quill. Maybe it’s time he throws a fit and complains she has no time for him.
Nice.Obligate your friends for an unlimited term and get your name first on the plaque for being the “inspiration”.Look at all the cr*p on that “street”Shouldn’t the town be call PIGGs?
“Mary Sue” is another term for a “Keener”. In other words, “Goody-Goody”, but also with an extra jab…..
Yup… that plastic bottle was said to be there….
Wonder if it said “Yoo Hoo” on it? Heh, heh!!!
Good one, along with JPW!!!!
These days, “Mary Sue” has been “snatched” by the newer generations, to be more of a deriding term for someone who wants to “play it straight” and who seems to do stuff that’s not always fun…. they consider a “Mary Sue” to be “uptight”, when it’s probably not the case (not always), for someone labeled as such….
Here’s a link to a site that I don’t particularly use myself, but it shows that others also associate the term “Mary Sue” with “Straight laced” and also “teacher’s pet”……
Why did the story of TJ end so abruptly? Are we going to find out what happened with the insurance, or is that next weeks episode?
Aha! Here it is! –
Here is the rest of that arc. This shows one reason why Delta was motivated to do all of the work…. –
Delta was there to ‘ground’ Luann and Bernice, as it was put.I notice Luann is doing the work without complaining even smiling so it looks as though Deltas’ work here is done.I’ll miss you Delta. :(
That’s so sweet…
I know this isn’t related whatsoever but please pray for the Canter family they lost their daughter Erin (ten) two days ago. Thank you and godbless
Just jumped in to see what’s been going on! Looks like Luann and Bernice will be moving along into un-chartered waters sometime in the next week or two? We already know what will be happening to Delta. I am beginning to wonder What direction Greg is going in..school should be starting soon…we need some prep work before the actual classes begin, don’t you think?! Gotta go! ’Nite all!-—————————————————————————-“The wiser mind Mourns less for what age takes away Than what it leaves behind.” (William Wordsworth, 1770-1850)
It’s a character who everyone is supposed to think is perfect, and it’s corny. :P
Hate to ask but are you closing the strip? Or will we be following Luann into encounters with a new cast?
