The preceding cartoon ran originally on a Friday. The Saturday cartoon that appeared in newspapers was unrelated to Mary Lou and her problems. It featured Arlo and Janis conversing under a beach umbrella. This cartoon ran the following Monday, and I thought I’d save us some time: yes, she’s wearing print shorts on Thursday and solid shorts on Monday.
To those of you who’re joining us to catch up on the background of Mary Lou and Gene, I’m glad you took the time, and I hope you’ll come back. Almost every day, I post an old A&J cartoon and maybe a few thoughts, and you’re invited to comment. This is my personal project: no ads, nothing for sale, no membership required. Just us folks.
