    Was watching a commercial for one of those A-fib medications and realized: crow’s feet are actually sexy.

    No need for any paternity test on Alex. She’s definitely Mike with bad hair!!

    Dating and one-night affairs have nothing in common with serious relationships and even less with the wonderful and terribly complicated project of building a family with children. You may live very well without saturday night booze and “friends with benefits”, but when you reach a certain age and you only have your job to fill your thoughts and you KNOW that you are “the last of your name”, well, it’s different.

    She has brains, a secure career, friends, and she’s still lovely, inside and out.

    Shania Twain sang, “But that won’t keep me warm in the middle of the night.”

    Linda Rhonstadt sang, " I am not in the market for a boy who wants to love only me …I’m not ready for any person place or thing to try and pull the reins in on me." Now she’s 76, crippled with Parkinson’s disease, living with her cat.

    Geezum— Alex is in her late 30’s/40’s? I’ve been reading this strip for a long, long time.

    I’d better go sit in the puddle in the back yard to reflect on this.

    It’s been awhile since there’s been a good one about the traitor and insurrectionist, Fat Orange Clown, so I am hoping that GT is stockpiling for the campaign year.

    Definately one of the more stressful jobs out there. At any time of day you can get a call about someone who has had an accident and needs immediate help

    Success comes in many forms. Being the best you, you can be is the best success of all.

    We change as we move through life. I used to be a construction worker, now I’m a philosopher. I think about all the things, and friends, who came and went. And where to put commas. Put one there or not? Busy, busy, busy.

    At 40, Drew still has a long ways to go professionally. I had open heart surgery performed by a thoracic surgeon who was near 70. He was assisted by a 40 something surgeon. I’m still here after another 15 years.

    I have been following Doonesbury since the mid 70’s when it was just in the local papers here in Connecticut. If Drew is 40 then Alex is 40! Geeze I’ve watched her getting born and grow up in Doonesbury land.. Now I’m feeling old. lol

    And of course out come the comments that you have to get married and have children or else you’ll regret it later in life. I mean, just admit it: You got caught in the trap, and you need the rest of us to do the same so that you feel validated.

    My neurosurgeon was a youngster out of Stanford, he spent 10 hrs removing a massive tumor from my wives spinal cord. While he was telling me about the surgery his beeper went off and he sped off to put a brain back into a kid after a motorcycle wreck. Nothing like a 20hr day….

    Seems like yesterday when Alex was a kid and then a young adult. She’s definitely showing her age. That’s the trouble with Trudeau’s insistence on doing only Sundays and continuing to have the characters age in real time.

    The discussion misses the key thing here….how did Drew get to be 40? Does that mean Alex is 40? To quote Grogu from Mandalorian, “No. No. No. No. No.”

    When I hear “neurosurgeon”,my first thought is “killer schedule”.

    Remember Lucille Bal l and Mary Tyler Moore.After nasty divorces from the respective Svengalis who “made their careers”, Lucy married a nightclub comic who’s never seen an episode of I LOVE LUCY; and Moore married a doctor who told her he “didn’t watch much television”.

    They were married to husbands No.2 longer than No.1.
