If Robert B. Parker hadn’t died, we would have wrapped up this little series on Saturday and could be on to other things. However, this is the last cartoon in the “Ruth mail” series. For those of you who say it ends unsatisfactorily, I suppose you’re right. I think this probably was the last appearance of Ruth in the strip, although I didn’t necessarily intend that at the time I drew it. I probably meant to come back to it and never did. Yet.
