(Strip Number 4509, Original Publication Date, 1 July 1985)
Panel 1: As a frowning Elly stares worriedly at a piece of paper while holding a pen in her hard, Lizzie asks John what Mommy is doing.
Panel 2: John says that Mommy is trying to write an article for the Valley Voice.
Panel 3: He then tells Lizzie not to talk to her.
Panel 4: When he makes a smart-ass remark about ruining her train of blank, Elly gets pissed.
Summary: This, I should think, is a slam against everyone who's ever told her that forting herself in an alcove and shutting out all external inputs is a stupid way to do things. She so can create something from nothing and don't you forget it.
