In today's strip, Elly's constant nagging as to what she wants the contractor to do to the ceiling is rebuffed by a man telling her that she can only expect so much.

(Strip Number 1018, Original Publication Date, 7 February 1986)

Panel 1: Now that the contractor has shown up to patch the roof in Lizzie's room, we find Elly giving her a sort of play-by-play.

Panel 2: She tells Lizzie to notice how Gauthier is using a little broom to make circle patterns in the plaster he's putting over the patch.

Panel 3: She then irritates him by making suggestions about circle size, stippling, borders and so on.

Panel 4: He gets all flustered when he asks de lady if maybe she tinks dis is de Sistine Chapel.

Summary: Given the mustache and the funetik acCENT, I should think that Elly's need to micromanage something like this is her first time antagonizing local home repair specialist Paul Gauthier.
