(Strip Number 450, Original Publication Date, 15 August 1983)
Panel 1: We find the Pattersons having a cup of coffee together. As they do say, Elly tells him what a great experience the farm was.
Panel 2: She reminds him that she drove the tractors, loaded pigs, cooked for ten and augured grain.
Panel 3: She's practically bursting with pride when she tells him that she's done so many things she's never done before.
Panel 4: Too bad John has to spoil things by making a stupid crack about how great it was to see her working for a change. Nice one, fathead! Maybe we can get you a kitten to set on fire while you're at it.
Summary: Does John think Elly's lazy? Judging from the fact that it took twenty years for him to realize that if she had a second ass, she'd work it off too, probably. Granted, he IS too stupid to realize that he's married a raging paranoiac who'd think that there was an ulterior motive in the weather forecast but still, he should probably stop saying words.
