    Two songs that I’m positive are not playing in the background are:

    “Every Breath You Take”, The Police

    “The One I Love”, R.E.M.

    =

    One song that probably should join those two (at least in terms of the first few dance songs to start things off): “Broken Wings”, by Mister Mister.

    The situation going on in the lower right corner, is probably either:

    1) A production meeting for “The Travelling Collectibles Program”

    -

    2) The Greater Pitts Municipal School District Community Players’ Amateur Playrights’ Asscociation annual presentation meeting for “Hemlock And Classic Chiffon”.

    I knew there would be lots of comments on Bernice and Gunther dancing. But I see something more subtle in that connection. Directly in front of them, in the foreground, Luann is dancing with Shannon. Luann is the only woman who is dancing, but not with a man. For about a year there has been a trend of showing that Bernice has an active interest in guys, while Luann has not, since her breakup with Quill. This may somehow say as much about Luann’s future character development as it might about Bernice’s and Gunther’s.

    Luann is really good with children. Maybe she should be a mommy soon. On the other hand – Maybe there’s a rare talent emerging, and Luann should take the time to let it bloom.

    Such interesting match-ups and dynamics in today’s strip. I particularly like the Les-and-Pru action, it’s worth a laugh in itself. And Leslie is still managing to ignore a guest that is tryng to get his attention as a waiter.

    .

    Bern & Gunther match-up: Good. Lu and Ox a possibility? He’d be sure to treat her right. Don’t know if she’d do the same for him…

    I really appreciate how characters from the past are brought back. Former neighbor, Mrs. Baird at the table. Very nice to honor her. Thanks for the info on ‘Puddles’. I didn’t know how they originally got him. I miss him not being featured regularly. I also think of the baby Luann often kept. Lindy, Linzy? or something like that (I guess she would be 11 or 12). I enjoy characters from years back being re-introduced.

    Mrs. Baird, eh? I had been under the impression that Puddles was Mrs. Horner’s dog, originally. I didn’t realize Mrs. Baird was someone else. That had better not be a chicken leg Ox is giving Puddles. Bird bones are not something to feed a dog.

    I’m not yet ready to read too much into Gunther and Bernice dancing together. He had a thing for her recently, but she hadn’t thought of him That Way before. They may just know one another better than they do any of the other guests.

    I do think a Bernice / Piro / Gunther / Tiffany storyline is one of the more obvious next arcs, once we’re done with the wedding. Personally, I’m curious to see more developments with Les, Mr. Grey and Pru over Les’ private enterprise activities.

    It does appear that Jonah has slipped off to an “audition” of some sort. Either that or he and his aunt are off chasing Pokemon.

    Toni’s tat is clearly visible.

    I just read all the comments to make sure mine was not already voiced….. Am I the only one who notices how the guys in the center are not dressed up for a wedding? Maybe the one in uniform I can let slide. The old ladies in the front I give a pass to…being old, but I’ll bet in real life the old ladies would be very dressed up. What is this new phenomena of dressing in your every day clothes for a wedding? I saw that at my wedding in 1981…a handful of (young) guests came in pullover casual shirts…not even a “golf” shirt with a collar. No jackets. No ties. It was an extremely dressy wedding at a high end venue. I felt a bit hurt. And believe me, these folks had the money to dress properly. I hate how casual our society has become. If you can’t dress up for weddings and New Years Eve, then when?

    Lots of innocent people are dying, whoever is telling the story. That was Jacks’ point. We can disagree on the politics and I agree that this is not the forum for that fight, but sometimes caring shows through. Luann is our focus here, and I think we all can agree that she and her saga are one piece of brightness in life on good and bad days. I have had horrible days when finding Luann in the Chicago Sun-Times, or on my computer was absolutely necessary, and other days when it was just fun, but all of them I appreciate, and I think, on this blog that should be the focus…. Hey what you think about the loud mouth firemen anyway huh? Personally I think he is one of the most enjoyable persons on the tableau in this arc. I am an African-American male who grew up in the projects on the South Side of Chicago, and you know some of the best people I knew as a kid, Black and White loud policemen and firefighters. Not having a father I guess I realized the true men these guys were, guys who would lay their lives down in an instance if duty calls. So if you want to be serious, let me just say, that loud-mouth is cool, on so many levels.

    Standard wedding reception. Old folks table, stag table, somebody trying to be a matchmaker (probably Luann) with the couple in the background, Luann filling the unaccompanied Maiden Aunt roll and dancing with the small children, waiters ignoring the guests. Typical reception scene.

    When Gunther came back from Peru, Bernice maybe regarded him as a changed person, a man now with new mysteries for her to discover. Soon it became evident that he’s still his same old whiny self, except now he was also surly towards his Mom. It’s no wonder Bernice lost interest in him. He should have stayed in Peru.

    Those of you who believe Tiffany should be at Toni and Brad’s wedding seem to have forgotten something basic: who is getting married. Toni and Brad are not friends with Tiffany, didn’t go to high school with her, don’t see her even occasionally. She’s not a relative of either of them.

    .

    I still don’t get why Bernice and Gunther are there, for the same reason. Tiffany, Bernice and Gunther are part of Luann’s group. Why should Toni or Brad invite total strangers to their wedding?

    As you see, Shannon Daytona is NOT the first Shannon, but the same character concept accidentally was reused:

    .

    “As I was looking through old strips to answer the question “Is the current Shannon the same person as the Shannon of 1996?” (she’s not; see previous blog) I discovered something that surprised me: she very well could be. Here’s why.

    .

    A four year old girl named Shannon was introduced on January 8, 1996 as the daughter of the sister of Mrs. Lewis (mother of Lindy, who Luann babysat). So Lindy Lewis and Shannon are cousins (although over time I believe I began to think of them as siblings. These things are hard to determine because the occurrences of Shannon and Lindy are spread over several years and it would take me hours to sleuth out how I ended up portraying them).

    .

    Point is, Shannon isn’t Shannon Lewis."

    .

    So, do not take my word for it. Take Greg Evans’ word.

    .

    He has said the same elsewhere but i am lacking time, and if you search for them then it will stick better, anyway.

Because of Puddles being shown, do we discuss the ASPCA attempts to close down puppy mills? Do we talk about animal experimentation and using dogs for food in some areas of the world?

    There’s a time and place for everything, and THIS ISN’T IT!

    Please, PLEASE leave the political clap trap to the editorial pages and editorial cartoons.

    I thought we had been told that they ordinarily don’t read the comments posted herein, much less “value” them<<<They do, when I talked to Greg in a live forum, he knew who I was , right away, despite using a different screen name, as soon as I asked an anti-Quill question! haha

    Shannon was NOT the daughter of Mrs Lewis, she was the niece… Lindy was the daughter, thus, even if she were the same Shannon, she would never have been Lewis… unless Her mother and Lindy’s married brothers, so saying she isn’t Shannon Lewis is obvious, and meaningless, as to whether it’s the same Shannon.

    Recommend:

    1) Do avoid political comments

    2) Do avoid comments about political comments

    I am excused, of course, because i am making a comment about comments about political comments.

    Geez, no one could have asked Tiffany as their plus one? She didn’t necessarily have to be directly invited. I think she is a major enough character that she should have been included in this panel. Just my humble opinion.

    When Brad and Toni got engaged, there were lots and lots of comments posted herein about how Luann, Bernice, Tiffany, and Delta should be bridesmaids. Of course, there is no reason that Luann’s friends should even be invited at all, much less be a part of the ceremony. Apparently the people who posted those comments just wanted to see those long-time characters wearing bridesmaids’ gowns, whether it makes any sense in the story or not.

    jackreacher said,

    @DNTME

    “The #1 definition of politics is: Social relations involving intrigue to gain authority or power.”

    .

    Consider what pops up on Google when I request the definition.

    “the activities associated with the governance of a country or other area, especially the debate or conflict among individuals or parties having or hoping to achieve power.”

    .

    Notice “intrigue” is not inherently involved. It is possible to honestly tell what you think should be done even if you don’t do it yourself and it would still be part of politics.

    For instance, if I vote Libertarian, it doesn’t mean I am trying to gain power to blow up the world, rather that I consider a somewhat ignorant pot-head preferable to the two main candidates. I exercise a degree of power as part of a group which could have changed the direction of the election had we chosen to vote for the one who lost or we could fortify the winner’s victory by being part of his “Mandate”

    Notice, it is not just to gain power, but also the use of same and its retention.

    Notice it doesn’t even have to deal with governance, the “social relations” part is important, though.

    Debates would involve people trying to convince others to their way of thinking, not — of course — people shouting at each other or about each other.

    .

    I tend to think of it more as a means of determining direction of action or future goals, including the opposition to unwise directions or counterproductive goals.

    .

    Of course, that’s just me, though.

    I’m sure Frank is just admiring Toni’s tattoo (wasn’t it stated some time back what her tattoo is? – I can’t remember).Happy occasion, but the happiest of the bunch seems to be Puddles!I thought some time back Luann commented that Bernice and Gunther were not on the invite list, since they were her friends, not Brad’s or Toni’s. I guess that got resolved? I must have missed it.

    And a good time was had by all, it seems!

    But, for me, the most intriguing of these numerous pairings, for better or for worse, is the very tentative linkage between Les “Hard” Knox and Prudence. That could be a supernova!

    I hope that Bern and Gunther dancing together is not significant. There have been so many more interesting arcs involving Bernice and other guys that it would be boring and a let-down if she started going out with Gunther. I’m going to predict that she is doing this in order to patch her ‘friendship’ with Gunther. There was a lot misunderstanding between the two. Hopefully this is just her effort to put those problems to bed.

    So Gunther and Bernice were invited, or Luann got to bring a “plus 2.”

    Oh, I love it, I Love it, I LOVE IT!!! :) What a Great Wedding Party!!! Almost everyone who crossed (and was crossed by) Brad and Toni’s paths is there (but, Where did Toni’s brother go?!…Guess Greg and his family went home, too!). Everyone is sooooo happy! That is what wedding parties should be about…puts me in a Great mood, too! I Love weddings…the promise of hope, love, and caring! Once the party is over, and the best that is to come comes true, the hard work begins as their separate lives merge into one. However, I think, as their love gets stronger and stronger, they will be able to successfully overcome the problems and the challenges of married life. Congratulations, Brad and Toni! Now, what did I do with my champagne glass…?!

    Mikey, unless they were single mothers, or kept their maiden names and the children had those (which i have seen done in some families), or they married men w the same names as their maiden name, or Lindy’s mom used “sister” to refer to sister-in-law as well as sister (which i have also seen done in some families). More likely his inclusion of that name was just a designator to tell the two Shannons apart, though.
