    I think the handwritten sign held to the front door with scotch tape really gives the house a first impression that says, “Only the finest in taste”.

    Have I ever mentioned that I can be sarcastic at times?

    I have to say, that wallpaper is ugly. Hopefully Brad and Toni will have it replaced. Otherwise, Greg will have to draw the wallpaper pattern every time there’s a scene in the house — which I doubt he would enjoy. (If Greg has a way to reproduce the wallpaper pattern without having to draw it by hand, then that’s unfortunate because it means we will see the wallpaper a lot more often than I would prefer.)

    Do what you do, do well.

    Find your strengths and focus on them.

    This is what allows the average American to be above average — there is always something at which they excel.

    The benefit of an education is helping you find that thing and enhance it.

    Seriously, I’m a little bothered by Brad and Toni’s apparent willingness to take advantage of TJ’s cooking skills. I know they’re busy professionals, but so is TJ… and he most likely works five or more days per week, whereas they probably work fewer but longer hours.

    Technically, nobody has to own a place for it to be home.

    Children have homes even if their parents own them.

    People have homes even if banks hold the mortgage.

    Frank: I’m talking about bombs. I’m talking about human dignity. I’m talking about human rights. Viktor, please don’t be afraid to tell me that you’re afraid of Krakhozia.

    TJ has overstepped. The wallpaper is way over-the-top, at least as something to pick out for other people, without their input, and especially in their home where they have to live with it so much. For that matter, you don’t pick out a chair for someone else,especially if it’s one they’re expected to sit in a lot. Fail. This “should” be the start of an arc that breaks up the living arrangement — we’ll see.

    I would think this is the next stage of the marriage, and the status/relationship of TJ to Brad and it. At some point TJ would, in the real world, need to go off on his own. But this being Luannverse who knows? One thing is clear for TJ haters, and that is that that emotion is misplaced. But there is no accounting for taste.

    The Sunday edition didn’t give much to comment on.

    The usual speculations were missing – not much to ponder.

    Hoping for a good thread here.

     

    Sunday strips are usually (but not always) regarded as “stand-alone” strips that aren’t related to the ongoing story line that runs Mon-Sat.

    Not only is TJ built in cook and rent contributer, but he also is able to get along with / handle Shannon. If Brad and Toni do adopt her, get custody or whatever, hey will have a built in baby sitter, when TJ is not managing K2…. since o@ten Brad and Toni are working similar sifts whether they are 2 the same fire station or different ones, like they were at the beginning. Unless of course Grammie Nancy, Grandpa Frank or Luann will always be on hand to watch Shannon…. Not.
