Let me know if this doesn't work.


(If you'd care to comment on anything I said in that thread, I'd love it.)

For those who don't know, Jan Eliot is the cartoonist.

Val Stone is the widowed(?) mother of two daughters: the self-spoiled princess 13-year-old Holly and the smart, outgoing, bookish 9-year-old Alix. Val got married again - to a cop, Phil.

Val's sister Joan, abandoned by her first husband, had a two-year-old son, Max. She married her balding, dependable neighbor, insurance salesman Wally, and had a daughter. (So Max is now three. Baby Lucy is still a baby.) Also, Wally's teen nephew Andy lives with them.

Evie is Gramma to the girls and lives with Val, when she's not globe-trotting and doing manual charity work with her boyfriend Arnold.

More on them, if you like:

It's been a Sunday-only for several years. Personally, I rarely find the weekly strip funny, but the dailies are all new to me (I only started reading it about five years ago) and I like those. They run them on GoComics every day as "Stone Soup Classics."
