It's good to see a reminder of how inattentive Elly is has finally gotten Mike to see what's important in life. It's even better to see him admit what he was doing wrong;)

Such a rarity for Michael. Maybe this will be a lesson that sticks (as opposed to the times her learned that people he writes about are PEOPLE! REAL ones! With FEELINGS!). ;)

Yeah, I tried to replicate the way Lynn did Deanna's and Meredith's mouths.

Hope that's a good laugh and not a "OMG what the heck was she thinking" laugh. ;)

Maniacal laughter. Congratulations. You have now colored more comic strips than Lynn Johnston has colored in the last 12 years.

Aww.

I like the color! It's like they now have a future again, so the light's seeping in....

I want to know what Merrie had planned with the x-acto knife, sandpaper, plastic wrap and a vise. I assume it involved Crown Prince Poopypants or, better yet, getting rid of Uncle Anthony.

Thanks, Lady--I like that interpretation. :)

I didn't have a specific use in mind, other than to think she was up to no good. It occurs to me that it's more fun to leave Merrie's intentions to readers' imagination. :)

At least SOMEONE took a positive lesson from his ordeal. Okay, so he had to deal with things a second time around, but the lesson's learned.

Let's hop it sticks.
