As she shows Elly the grounds of the complex, Mrs Baird demonstrates a rudimentary knowledge of some of her fellow tenants. Also, a nasty joke is made at the expense of the hearing-impaired.

(Strip Number 1157, Original Publication Date, 19 May 1987)

Panel 1: As Elly prepares to leave, Thelma tells her to not go quite yet because she wants company walking the grounds.

Panel 2: As they do so, we see another resident of the complex sitting on a bench in the foreground as Thelma talks about how pleasant the surroundings are and how she already knows a little about some of the other residents.

Panel 3: As a baffled Elly looks on, Thelma goes up to the woman on the bench and yells YARD SALE as loudly as possible at the back of her head.

Panel 4: As they walk on, Thelma says "For example, Mrs Soames is quite deaf."

Summary: Any notes would probably have her state that no hearing-impaired people complained about the joke.
