Panel 1: Elly's reflection still looks a bit Popeye-ish. And clearly we're in for an inner "How did I get so ollllllld?" monologue. Sigh...I can see Elly being dissatisfied with her appearance now, but what's sad is that neither she nor LJ ever has been, even when they were young.

Panel 2: Jeeeeeeez! Not only a yam schnozz, but a Jay Leno jaw! And I don't recall her adjusting; I remember her repeatedly moaning and groaning and being reassured (or ribbed) by John.

Panel 3: Actually, she had lines around her mouth even earlier than that. I recall elem-school-aged Mike telling her she had a smile "with brackets", which did evoke a genuine smile. And again, she wasn't happy with her looks in her '40s, either.

Panel 4: Echhhh! Wattle!

Panel 5: Oh. Brother. This is going up on SO many fridges. Yam nose and all.
