We reach what aprilp_katje finds to be the low point of the week: Danny disrupting Elly's attempt to wax poetic by reminding her that they're going to eat one of the older 'miracles' in about two or three hours.

(Strip Number 6019, Original Publication Date, 29 July 1983)

Panel 1: Now that the sow is done birthing, Danny tells Elly that it isn't a bad showing as they've nine good ones and a runt.

Panel 2: Since Elly doesn't know how big the word "if" can be, Danny's off-hand comment about how the runt will survive if he gets fed at all only seems to have served to have set her up to be disappointed.

Panel 3: As they walk back to the main building, she tells him that farming must really bring him in touch with the miracles of life, birth and death.

Panel 4: He tells her to cut the poetry because they're having bacon for breakfast.

Summary: I'm not sure which I like the least: Elly blithering about miracles or Danny going out of his way to be 'practical'. Hell. I'll just call it a draw and wish both of them would shut up.
