Today's strip has John and Elly at wits' end having to deal with all the stuff Connie doesn't need any longer.

(Strip Number 918, Original Publication Date, 15 August 1985)

Panel 1: We find John wandering around listing all the things he sees on a table. Said items are snowshoes, some books, a punch bowl, a camping toaster and most confusing of all, a hibachi.

Panel 2: Elly explains that as a result of Connie's packing, she unloaded all the stuff she isn't going to need on them.

Panel 3: Given that John's posture is one of horrified confusion, his whining about what they're supposed to do with all this stuff indicates that he doesn't think any of it is of any use.

Panel 4: Given that Elly's equally horror-struck when she tells him that they'll have to give it away when THEY move, she doesn't think the new stuff is any more useful than Connie did.

Summary: Well, we know that Mike will end up with snowshoes, some books, a punch bowl, a camping toaster and a hibachi in twenty years time.
