Thursday, 28 January 2016: Elly needs a diet called 'death.'

Elly and Mrs Baird ambush Phil with the lovely proposal that he move right next door so Elly can storm on over at will and nag him incessantly.

(Strip Number 4752, Original Publication Date, 29 January 1987)

Panel 1: As Phil drinks some coffee, Mrs Baird tells them that it's time for her to move to a smaller place that's easier for her to look after.

Panel 2: She wanted to tell Elly first in case she knew someone looking for a new place to live.

Panel 3: When Elly tells Phil it's a nice place, he's taken aback by the suggestion that he become her neighbor.

Panel 4: When Thelma offers to hold the mortgage, Phil says to HOLD EVERYTHING! because she and Elly are moving too fast.

Summary: Not only are they putting the cart before the horse here, the idea of spending the rest of his life listening to that dim-witted shrew Elly beefing at him unmolested because she won't let the past go is as hellish as having to live in the same neighbourhood as Ted and Sally Forth.
