We begin the Christmas library fund-raiser arc with Elly telling Sue what a terrible mother Annie is.

(Strip Number 977, Original Publication Date, 18 November 1985)

Panel 1: We find ourselves at the library watching Sue comment on how frazzled Goggle-Eyed Elly looks.

Panel 2: Elly tells her that when she drove Annie and the kids into town, they 'destroyed' her car.

Panel 3: Sue makes the stupid palms-out gesture of don't hit me, Mommy and asks "You mean she just sat there and didn't discipline them?"

Panel 4: Rage-faced Elly rages that Annie confuses demolition with creativity.

Summary: Over-react much, El? It's a pain in the ass cleaning up upholstery but it's not worth the beating you'd like to have seen inflicted on a clumsy toddler who, despite what you always seem to think in cases like this, wasn't plotting to DESTROY you because he HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATES you.
