The eternal August of Val Stone.

As I'd mentioned, we're about to see the last two first-run strips of Jan Eliot's Stone Soup. So far, she's been talking with the characters about various things that interest or bother them and it looks as if the second-to-last will be much the same. The reason that I mention this is that the last strip is going to be published before the month of August. The reason this is important is because every August Sunday, Jan takes a vacation from her usual subject matter to provide a sort of PSA for lazy August weekends with family and friends.

This makes me think that the last strip will probably involve her reminding Val that despite the fact that they're not being observed any longer, their lives will go on, it is also a pleasant August day that shouldn't be wasted. This leads to a vista of the family loving August forever and ever. It's kind of like how the last Apartment 3G had one of the characters just stand there wondering what to do next.
