(Strip Number 4554, Original Publication Date, 22 January 1986)
Panel 1: As Mike looks on, Elly lists the things Grandpa Jim has recently fixed; so far, he's fixed the sink, towel rack, garage door and hall clock.
Panel 2: As she looks at him sitting around doing the worst possible thing (nothing), Elly complains that he looks bored and wishes there was something for him to do.
Panel 3: When Michael offers to break something in order to help out, Elly is surprised.
Summary: She'd be even more astonished if Mike suggested that Jim slide on down to the Legion Hall to hang out with other veterans because that isn't on her radar.
