My original post in 2016:
Mr. and Mrs. Edwards didn’t have any children. I have a feeling I know why.
Daughter or wife? They’re French, so it could go either way.
It is clear, at her mind something’s gnawing.
Edwin calmly reviewed
her self-portrait (a nude).
Did he like it? (Just hemming and hawing.)
/// His response, long delayed, didn’t cheer her.
“It resembles you, but should be clearer.
It looks unreal because
you’ve omitted your flaws.
Try again, but, this time, use a mirror.”
it’s a playoff beard honey, i will shave it after we win the series!
It says here you are divorcing me because I’m cold and uncaring, and you want to keep the dog. When did we get a dog?

You paid 4900 dollars for a sepia sketch?
Is this what you look like nude?? Shudder
Interesting background information regarding “Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Edwards”, via the blog My Daily Art Display:
do you think it would help if I shaved?
(Woman): “No, this isn’t a prenup. It’s my marriage settlement. Read it and weep.”
Will died three days after signing Karen’s updated version of his will.
Claire needed to fine tune her seduction skills
At first I thought this was a painting of pianist Clara Schumann and composer Johannes Brahms. They had a long friendship that lasted long after the death of her husband, composer Robert (1810 – 1856). The clothing and hairstyles in the picture were common at the time of this painting (1875).
But Clara (1819 -1896) was older than Johannes (1833 – 1897). And Brahms did not begin to adopt his signature long beard until in his forties. So their circumstances do not easily compare to the people in the painting (In any case, titled “Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Edwards”). Although there were rumors of a serious romantic relationship, the two musicians did not marry.
By the way, an intense book about Robert Schumann’s relationship and marriage to Clara Wieck is Peter F. Ostwald’s biography, “Schumann: Music and Madness.”
See also Harold C. Schonberg’s “The Great Pianists, from Mozart to the Present,” Chapter XV: “The Virtuous.”
Ok, so it’s a loaf of bread, a quart of milk, a dozen eggs and a Pay Day candy bar?
“It’s actually terribly simple, dear. I wrote it, you sign it, I become independently wealthy, and your wife doesn’t find out about our baby.”
“Wuthering? What in blazes is ‘wuthering?’ Get this pretentious verbiage out of there, or this will never have a chance.”
Franz was having trouble deciding whether to have his eggs scrambled or over easy.
Hmmmm, I wrote this note years ago, how should I remember who Belinda with the boombas is?
Agnes showed Julius the detectives sketch of him cheating on her.
The numbers didn’t lie: They were, in fact, spending more on his beard-care products than they were on her feminine hygiene products.
The latest news from the stock ticker left a lot to be desired.
She’s holding a stick and about to bean him with it.
Ruth is just waiting for Edwin to make some smartassed remark about seeing her etchings.

Again, a larger strip image is shown by merely clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s THROWBACK THURSDAY: MASTERPIECE #1432 (4/19/16) (September 28, 2022) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment, and using the dropdown menu. I have added a comment there pointing to the blog entry with my comment pointing to the artist info I used to point to here. So far, 6 works by this artist have been used here (7 times total, including this Throwback Thursday repeat), the April 18, 2016, strip being its first use (the 21 hyperlinks in my comment there have been deactivated, and the line breaks removed, but perhaps the text remains informative). The July 13, 2022, strip is the prior non-repeat by him.
Lucinda, how can I read this with your décolletage staring me in the face.
hmmm, maybe a bit of editing is needed…
