In today's strip, Elly's enthusiasm about who she'll be sitting next to fades away when it's revealed that she's sitting next to an elderly clergyman.

(Strip Number 816, Original Publication Date, 11 March 1985)

Panel 1: We start things off with Elly boarding the plane for Winnipeg. As the PA system tells her where to go and how to get there, she smiles and thought-bubbles about how great she feels.

Panel 2: She reminds herself that she hasn't flown solo for a loooooooong time.

Panel 3: As she walks to her seat, the anticipation of discovering who her seatmate will be has her excited.

Panel 4: Upon finding out that her super-dynamic companion is a grumpy looking priest reading a door-stopper of a book, she is a little intimidated. (Actually, she's terrified out of her mind but 'intimidated' is what she'll tell her family later to save face.)

Summary: Ah, my. She might not be the most devout member of the flock but Sunday School was only just yesterday for her. Good thing that Father Bob (we have to name him SOMETHING!!) turns out to be an okay guy.
