Today's strip is a mildly pleasant vignette in which Mike and Liz share what he calls a future good old day.

(Strip Number 6663, Original Publication Date, 29 November 1987)

Panel 1: As Mike and Liz play outside near what would later be called Farley's tree, they're surprised by a rumble of thunder.

Panel 2: They cover their heads as the rain starts to pour down.

Panel 3: They rush towards the house.

Panel 4: As they shiver from their drenching, Elly removes their wet jackets and does not screech about the inconvenience for once.

Panel 5: Elly covers them with a blanket so they can warm up.

Panel 6: She then hands them both a mug each of hot chocolate.

Panel 7: As they sit by the fire, Mike does something that sitcom writers falsely believe children do when he tells Lizzie that years from now when they're grown up....

Panel 8: ...THIS will be one of the good ol'days.

Summary: This is what Lynn can do when she actually tries to show a normal, happy family. Too bad that she thinks that screaming and hurt feelings and animosity is more appealing to watch. All it took was having Mike say something that it would be highly unlikely for him to say.
