Shipwrecked

My thanks to Jim Guida who wrote the hilarious dialogue for that unfortunate young lady pining away in the background. (I then came up with the cover caption in the red box.)

Over the years, Jim has contributed several gags (all great) to Last Kiss. And fortunately there doesn’t seem to be a way to stop him from coming up with more!
