Today's strip is a rather sweet little strip that reminds us that despite everything, John and Elly are still very much in love. (Note: don't expect notes for this one.)

(Strip Number 6136, Original Publication Date, 8 July 1984)

Panel 1: We start things off with Elizabeth in her nightie telling Elly to look out the window.

Panel 2: Since she never usually gets to look at the night sky, she calls the crescent moon a smile in the sky.

Panel 3: Elly decides that she and John should go for a walk in the beautiful evening when the kids are asleep.

Panel 4: As Elly says, they're just going around the block.

Panel 5: She then reminds him that they used to do this all the time when they were dating.

Panel 6: She goes on to say that there was a sort of a rush and magic between them back then.

Panel 7: She then asks him "Y'know what?" and he answers with the question "What?"

Panel 8: As the two of them cuddle, she reminds him that the magic is still there.

Summary: This is nice enough. Also, it's a good thing that notes are no longer a thing. After all, we know how painful being reminded that the magic didn't last is so it's almost a mercy that she doesn't have to remind herself of that. It's an even better thing for Lynn that Coffee Talk is no longer a thing because that way, her fans don't have to look at comments criticizing John and Elly for leaving the children alone.
