Did Lu Ann's hand turn into a pincer? Because that would be awesome. She could play human claw machine with that bowl of green fruit. And, with more of a mess, that box of baking soda/tissues.
You can't hide from Tommie Thompson. No matter how small of a town you live in, she will call the lowliest civil servant that she can find and smoke you out.

Three hours? That's nothing Tommie. Margo will gladly pay for your gas and lend you her EZ-Pass transponder. I mean it's not as if you'll see Lily again. Everyone that you love only takes one-way trips. So is this the end of the Tommie storyline, or does Jack Riley have that certain generic A3G man charm to rescue to Tommie from her loneliness?

They said a woman
doctor vet could not survive alone in the new frontier Manhattan. But I won't give up. And I'm not alone anymore! I've inherited a family deer, and that may be the biggest challenge of all her name is Lily and she's awesome and I don't need a dumb regular job anyway.
...hmm. Is it more effed up to inherit a family or a deer?

Actually, I'm pretty sure that is her. I think Tommie is excellent at sitting at home feeling sorry for herself.
I'm guessing the fawn is going to play into this. (Yeah, remember the fawn? I think Frank got tired of having to draw something other than generic woman-type and man-type figures.) Maybe Tommie is going to start an animal rescue in 3G! That'll give her a purpose after her definitely not fake fiance died.
This is good though. I'm glad Tommie is finally getting the opportunity to relax. All that girl ever does is work, work, work!

A week of strips about talking about not working? Tell me this can go on forever!

Tommie, you're not ready to come back to work. You're just coming back from your post-vacation vacation, you can't rush into it. You're just here so that we can say you have a job, but you never actually have to work. Let's face it, Frank can't handle drawing a busy hospital seven days a week. Think about the time it took to draw the blue man with the turtleneck! Let the man go back to squiggle art, white walls and green lampshades. It's for the best.

I don't know if Tommie feels better emotionally after her slumber, but the power nap seems to have taken years off her life. To the point where she is now an elfin, pre-pubescent boy who dresses like a Golden Girl.
Lily looks like she wants nothing to do with the Professor's chin beard. Or at least that he has to put a hair net on that before he gets anywhere her bowl of deer food.

Er... alright then? Can we move on from this storyline now? Tommie is a HIGHLY trained nurse so of course she should be stronger than to allow the very recent and sudden death of her fiance affect her for more than a moment. Tommie goes all Scarlett O'Hara, the Professor is like soooo done with this and wants to go home, and that's that. But I guess she still has that whole deer in the apartment thing going for her, so score one for Tommie?

Was the professor lurking in the bushes near a secluded spot in the park waiting for Tommie to show up? Or is that just the most exciting thing I can think of about today's strip. In the interest of fairness, this actually does look kind of like Central Park. Well done, Frank!

"Oh Margo, it's just so awful. My handsome, British fiancee, who totally existed, has died in a plane crash right before he was coming here to meet you. Now you'll never have met the great love of my life. Who existed until his small plane crashed in the forests of Vermont. Which is totally a place that the buyer for Harrod's would go. Do you have the receipt for all that boxed lamb?"

Jim's just dead I guess. Man! Jim was in exactly two weeks of strips, and while he was instantly fast-tracked to the rank of "fiancee," his death feels a smidge too soon for my taste. I feel like the cat that catches a mouse and kills it before she's done playing with it.
Oh well. I guess we can all still root for an extended storyline of Margo and Lu Ann thinking Tommie just totally made up her boyfriend!
BONUS FOOTAGE: planes crashing and people screaming "NO!!!" always remind me of Star Fox 64.

So based on the comments it seems like most people are rooting for Jim to be dead. I wouldn't be opposed to that, at least all of this nonsense would be wrapped up. Maybe it's just all the Downton Abbey I've been watching recently, but from the first panel of Rose's panicked "this wedding isn't happening" bobble, I thought it was going to be a class issue. Perhaps Jim is the heir to the earldom of Alesworthshire-Upon-Heath, and his marrying a non-noble, American nurse/amateur deer caretaker is completely out of the question. His troth has probably already been given to a proper lady who just keeps deer outside on the grounds of her landed country estate.
