We switch back to Milborough as Elly is paralyzed by fear by the bad news about John being missing. Look for the notes to be all about Lynn's anger being mixed with fear.

(Strip Number 1066, Original Publication Date, 30 July 1986)

Panel 1: While Elly is working, Michael tells her there is a phone call from the fishing lodge up at Parry Sound.

Panel 2: Having noticed that Elly has turned slack jawed and numb from fear, Mike asks her what's wrong.

Panel 3: She tells Mike and Lizzie that Phil's canoe washed up on shore but the boys are missing.

Panel 4: Lizzie's "Daddy? GONE?" comment sort of reminds us why John is a terrible person for not hiring a guide like Elly said to.

Summary: The notes practically write themselves, don't they? We're going to be told what a horrible thing he did to his children getting himself and those good, strong men in trouble being a big shot who made a big show of himself instead of listening to her and we're going to be asked to like it. Hmmm. I wonder if Katie is allowing this because she too resents Rod for scaring her.
