Today's strip is part of a comic triple because it's John's turn to declare a piece of old crap he can't use a beloved treasure.

(Strip Number 4429, Original Publication Date, 18 May 1984)

Panel 1: As our story continues, Elly tells John that the odd assortment of objects that she has collected are things that the family no longer uses.

Panel 2: Upon noticing that Elly wants to sell his beloved old duffel coat, John tells her that she can't possibly be thinking of selling it.

Panel 3: He then tells her that he never wears it because he is waiting for the style to come back.

Panel 4: An incredulous Elly says that she doesn't think he will live long enough for that to happen.

Summary: While the notes will be about something else, the underlying theme is that the Pattersons have a hard time letting go of things they don't need.
