What Toni and Brad have is just beautiful. Now we can all spend time wondering what Toni didn’t have time t…. Some pretty nice things come to mind.
Happy Saint Valentine’s Day, everybody.
I knew it Brad and Toni!Who needs a card when you got her!
That’s the way to play it. ✨
Great Valentine’s Day strip.
Oh, good. I need a week or two of Brad & Toni after the past few jumbles of story arcs. Thank you, G&K.
Funny how no one else grew up into adulthood.
I am sure Brad will not mind a bit if Toni did not get him a card. The evening is still young…
Happy Saint Valentine’s Day, everybody!
Would seem that Toni is ready to open more than just a card.
Now that’s the spirit! Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone—spread the love!
Maybe it’s time for Brad or Toni Jr. to be conceptualized…
Cards? Where we’re going we don’t need Cards!
Why to go Brad.
Beautiful! Maybe the card contains tickets for a Hawaiian vacation on their anniversary?
The strips from Tuesday and today couldn’t be more different. Brad is enjoying the love of a spouse, while Luann is lamenting the lack of it. Then again, it’s because of where they are in their respective lives: Brad has grown and evolved, while Luann has yet to grow further.
Brad you’re one smooth operator!
Brad doesn’t look dorky at all today…
Very sweet. Now how much you wanna bet tomorrow’s strip is how we see their Valentine’s Day ruined by Shannon being dumped on them last minute for the umpteenth million time?
No, Brad is looking good. They both do.
And now we begin a story where Brad begins to realize that Toni has a short term memory problem.
Fitting indeed, that this week should peak with Brad and Toni on St. Valentine’s Day. But the week’s not over yet. I foresee , on February 15, the first dawn light streaking the sky when a car parks by a certain bachelor cottage. In the second panel, we see a silent silhouette taking shoes off at the door and discretely slipping into the dark house. 3rd panel: Les in pajamas throws on the light to reveal a startled, disheveled Gunther, but all Les says is, “I won’t tell Luann.”
Nice. Giving tops getting moreso than Christmas.
Sure am happy we get to see Toni and Brad today.
Thanks, Greg, for the respite from teen angst to actual love!
Isn’t it about time for Toni to get pregnant?
Two roses to get, today. Sadly, they go to my wife’s grave. :(
Toni. while Brad would appreciate anything you might’ve bought him, it’s kind of obvious that he appreciates what you DID give him. (And, if things progress the way most of us think they will, you both will appreciate what you gave each other.)
When you consider where Brad started at, to see him like this, is wonderful!!! A firefighter, wife, great father to a rather damaged girl needing special care…And, even able to help his sister figure out life!!!
This is what’s it’s all about. I don’t need a day on a calendar to remind me to tell my wife (or my family) that I love them.
Happy Valentine’s day, Brad, Toni and everyone ♡.
Toni! Brad! Show some class! There are kids reading this thing.
My how Brad has turned into a stud, instead of dud. Looking back, I think he may have gotten hair transplants and plastic surgery! :-)
They seem to have transplanted Quill’s face onto Brad’s body.
tomorrow: Gunther and Bets …. “after” ???
Happy Valentines Day!!!
So nice that Toni and Brad are highlighted on this special day designated for Love and Lovers.
Ah yes. It’s always nice to see characters that I actually CARE about, Winning.
So I’m just going to savor the moment.
However brief it may be. :)
Beautiful. If they could always remember this when times get tough.
I think tomorrow we will see Frank & Nancy. The only other couple would be Bets & Gunther that I can think of. Happy VD everybody!
As Toni gives Brad a smoky glance…
Happy Saint Valentine’s Day to one and all. ❤️‿❤️
“Card?” I was thinking “legs”
Nice change of position between panels 2 & 3 Greg. — You old romantic, you!
Saturday screams out for two of the characters most iconic characters, Tiffany and/or Gunther! What’s with them on Valentines Day or the day after. OR The Day After The Night Before in Gunther’s case?
Les and Punk could be considered a Valentine couple. Even Luann and Bernice on Sunday were a strip staple couple over the decades. Brad and Toni, a married couple, were perfect on V-Day with a physical expression of V-Day love. But Lu and Pru? And Bern, Dez and Mother Earth? These seem somewhat out of place.
Is Saturday going to end the week on another case of unrequited love, like Luann? OR A giant teaser for use to ponder??? :o)
Very beautiful, such a beautiful, sexy, deeply in love couple; what’s on the envelope, other than a card? Tomorrow I hope Bets and Gunther, with a variation of her padding around fixing breakfast in the kitchen of the bachelor pad.
All hail the happy couple.And Ann Eiffel rejects Valentine’s Day entirely.Sentiment is for sissies.
They have such a great romance and story arc. Greg Evans was pretty clever about how he left it to the imagination as to whether they had pre-marital sex (I say they did), but the evolution of their relationship from first meeting to the present is absolutely incredible. It’s a truly enduring marriage. They still have room to grow: they deal with Shannon, they deal with fires, finances, and family, and at some point, I’m sure Toni will get morning sickness, leading to a whole new plotline.
So who do we see tomorrow? Nancy and Frank or Bets and Gunther? Maybe Irma and Al? Hopefully not Tom and Ann.
Why not celebrate Tom and Ann on Valentine’s Day?…it would be interesting to see some development of their interpersonal dynamics…as things stand now, Tom is stupid and Ann is manipulative… surely there’s more to it than that.
“‘Card’? I thought it was a banana”.
“Oh boy, a gift certificate for Pizza Hut.”
“… already got what I wanted most.”
This old strip was several weeks after Valentine’s Day 1987, but It’s a hoot! Luann, dreaming of her honeymoon cottage with Aaron Hill! LOL. https://www.gocomics.com/luann/1987/03/07
I thank my wife every day for 45 1/2 years. She’s been my Valentine 46 times! Go Brad and Toni!
It would be nice to have Luann mature past hanging out in her bedroom with Bernice. Put them at the table or living room instead.
I love how you can see Brad’s wedding ring.
I hope nobody forgot to send Vanna White a VOWELENTINE’s day card.
more brad and toni and less sophomore angst
He found some Lingerie that fit neatly into a Greeting Card.
Peoples looks change as they grow mature, then older. Normal part of the human condition
Gun and Bets saved for tomorrow???
yep, tomorrow we visit one more couple. Yesterday it was Punk and Les, previously it was Dez and earth. How about Irma and Al?
Brad and Toni on St. Valentine’s Day!
It’s the appropriate mush….
Brad’s hair seems to be grayer, that pepper & salt look giving him a more distinguished look.
The card is letting her know she’s going to be a mother
This is the third night in a row that I can’t get Arcamax to load. Since most of the posters here take turns either hating on Luann or yawping about how it’s time for Toni to get pregnant, and since GoComics doesn’t seem to refresh it’s site until, what, 4 am EST, I can only hope that the Evanses will bring Luann to Comics Kingdom…
Brad sure dried up nicely.
Brad didn’t look this good when he won Toni over and rescued her from her bully boyfriend.
Lovely Rita Meter Maid…. (Beatles)
Presence is better than presents
