We enter the post-treasury world with an arc about an Easter bake sale in which Elly's cooking is called into question.

(Strip Number 4588, Original Publication Date, 24 March 1986)

Panel 1: We start things off with Elly reading the notice Lizzie brought home concerning this year's Easter bake sale.

Panel 2: She then states that yes, she's supposed to wow the crowd with her super-excellent take on her mother's cooking.

Panel 3: As she reaches into a cupboard, she asks Lizzie if she should make squares, a cake or a pie. Lizzie asks if she can make cookies instead.

Panel 4: When Lizzie tells her that she wants her to make them because they usually turn out, the slam against Elly's baking ability leaves Mommy so gobsmacked, she almost drops the cookbook she usually misreads because there's no way SHE'S getting glasses.

Summary: The interesting thing is that this was the Monday of Holy Week twenty-nine years ago; if this trend continues, we can look forward to a world where Lynn dispenses with rearranging things to maintain the illusion that the strip is happening in the present day.
