Today's strip has Marian get all happy that she rearranged Elly's kitchen to mirror her own because of this whole not respecting boundaries thing of hers.

(Strip Number 1009, Original Publication Date, 15 January 1986)

Panel 1: We find Elly in the cupboard asking Marian where her casserole dishes are only to be told that they're under the sink so that Marian can reach them.

Panel 2: When she asks where the pot-holders and oven mitts are, Marian explains that they're in a drawer closer to the stove.

Panel 3: When Elly complains that Mariam has rearranged her entire kitchen, Mom admits to it.

Panel 4: When she replies that it's now easier to find everything, Elly is mildly gobsmacked.

Summary: Lynn loves this "in-laws rearrange things" joke because she did it four years ago when Will and Carrie house-sat for them. It's her way of nagging old people about respecting boundaries.
