(Strip Number 778, Original Publication Date, 5 January 1985)
Panel 1: As he puts on his robe, John runs down the hall and asks what's happening.
Panel 2: Lizzie tells Daddy that Michael lit a cigar an'put it inna wastebasket an'it caught fire an'th'alarm went off and he and Mommy got up.
Panel 3: We next see a pissed-off Elly carrying the wastebasket outside.
Panel 4: As Mike sticks his tongue out at Lizzie for snitching, a bleary-eyed Elly smiles at John and welcomes him to
Summary: Five bucks says that Elly was in such a rush to carry the damned thing outside, she forgot to lock the bloody gate. Also, for once Lynn gets getting 'timelessness' right. Too bad that she blew it last year. Kinda spoils it knowing that it's both 2014 and 1985......
