CRANKSHAFT: Nice artwork.
MANDRAKE: Uh, oh. It’s going to be the end of the world (literally) if they don’t find those golden sneakers in time!
MARY WORTH: Is Estelle going to get taken? First Wilbur, then Estelle? I hope she and Mary have a conversation…before it’s too late!
JUDGE PARKER: Roy tells his story. It’s a good thing the glass barrier is there, or Marie would probably punch him in the nose.
GATURRO: Call them breeches, shorts, or underpants…it’s a colorful cast of characters! Who is the character in the yellow shorts with no lunares (polka dots)?
CRANKSHAFT: There are times when I wish I had the nerve to say something like that! (referring to panel 3)
GATURRO: Gaturro wears pants at night, but not in the daytime?
MARY WORTH: Oh boy!
REX MORGAN: As Rex says, “Oh brother.” But we do learn Mr. Loudmouth’s real name.
JUDGE PARKER: As Marie, says, “Oh, Roy, ……..”
The lemon is on a computer screen today.
GATURRO: Is G. turning into a toad? (why is he croaking?)
MARY WORTH: I recently predicted that Arthur would ask Estelle what kind of car she drives. It appears that he is trying to assess her financial situation. It could be because senior daters are more interested in that sort of thing re a dating partner and potential life partner. Or, it could be because he’s up to something nefarious. The Volvo S90 is a nice car!
PHANTOM: It looks like Heloise and Kadia will be residing in Mawitaan, while P. goes off to rescue Kadia’s mom. Will we have two parallel story lines?
JUDGE PARKER: I hope Marie will calm down and let Roy tell his story…I’m dying to know what really happened!
I found this to be interesting…
GATURRO: Ting Tong.
PHANTOM: Is Mawitaan a city in Bengalla? That’s quite a skyline behind the new high school.
REX MORGAN: Will the TV news of the emergency landing have an update on Mr. Loudmouth?
MARY WORTH: Oh-oh. Here it comes. I’ll bet he’s going to be fishing for things like where she lives, what kind of car she drives, etc. In other words, he’ll be seeking to learn more about Estelle’s financial status… (to no good end).
MARK TRAIL: Rusty opened the box with the scary doll on the 3/9 and then on 3/11 the strip jumped to Doc’s gold story. Retired vet, Doc, is telling quite a tale…but what’s the deal with the doll?
Today’s commentary…wow! I know what ASCII is and could once write a few lines of code in BASIC, but I was never a programmer. There used to be a computer store here in my area that was named The Byte Shop…I loved it to bits. What size* is that floppy disk Doc just grabbed?
*Mr. Hobbes, above, would be using Apple equipment. Is that a Macintosh on his desk? What size floppy was the Mac using 1986? (I’m talking physical size, not storage.)
CRANKSHAFT: The TK site I usually use is working again. I love today’s Crankshaft (especially with Zoom In)!
