Canadian Thanksgiving 2016

We get properly introduced to Ed when he makes a 'witty' aside about how he's not Thelma's dad.

(Strip Number 4871, Original Publication Date, 12 October 1987)

Panel 1: As she and Elly walk down the street, Lizzie calls attention to the fact that she sees Mrs Baird.

Panel 2: At least she thinks it's Mrs B; she IS, after all, holding hands with someone.

Panel 3: When Lizzie blurts out the question of whether Mrs Baird has a boyfriend, Elly is, of course, horrified by the potential loss of face her child's bluntness will cause her.

Panel 4: Mrs Baird's giggling as Ed gets all mock-serious and asks Lizzie if she maybe thinks he's Thelma's dad sort of disproves this.

Summary: As always, Elly is more terrified of her children than everyone else is. Mrs B is playing it cool because she's not trying to impress no-one.
