In today's strip, Dawn warns that her mother doesn't let anyone touch her grandmother's collection of dolls.

(Strip Number 4519, 11 September 1985)

Panel 1: As she looks at a case of antique dolls, Elly tells Carol that she's impressed by the beautiful things she has.

Panel 2: As Lizzie and Dawn play with a modern-day doll too difficult for Kevin Strang to color, Carol tells Elly that the dolls her grandmother brought over from Japan are family heirlooms.

Panel 3: Lizzie asks Dawn what the unfamiliar word 'heirloom' means.

Panel 4: Dawn says it means if you touch one, she'll kill you.

Summary: Way to instill respect for property, Carol: threaten children into compliance. You'll fit in well in Milboring. Also, the notes are an incoherent mess about Mrs Masuda's doll collection.
