We begin the week with John complaining about the time and money Elly spends talking to Connie now that she's moved away.

(Strip Number 930, Original Publication Date, 2 September 1985)

Panel 1: We find John and Elly in the dining room. As she sits at the table looking through the day's mail, she tells him that the postcard he asked about is from Connie.

Panel 2: She then sighs and says that she still can't believe that her friend has moved so very far away.

Panel 3: John says that he can.

Panel 4: As proof, he shows her the telephone bill

Summary: If there are notes, they'll be all about how there was a magic time before the devil computers evil, conflict-causing MEN invented to make a big fool out of her came along when talking to distant friends was an event and enforced silence was a tragedy. What horrible device will evil, conflict causing men invent next as part of their campaign to ruin her life? A teleporter so that she can go long distances whenever she wants?
