(Strip Number 6718, Original Publication Date, 20 March 1988)
Panel 1: We start things off with John wanting to show Lizzie something.
Panel 2: To her delight, said thing is a necklace she lost somewhere.
Panel 3: Mike has the same experience of being delighted that something he thought lost was found when John asks him if he's holding Mike's silver dollar.
Panel 4: We tag Lizzie back in when John finds her Garfield pin.
Panel 5: We switch back to Mike when John fishes his headphones out of a latter-day Fibber McGee's closet.
Panel 6: Lizzie tells Elly to come lookit all the neat things Daddy found.
Panel 7: So far, he's found a hair band, a nail file, the jack of clubs, a change purse, a photo of Auntie Grace and two pairs of socks.
Panel 8: Elly asks John what happens to be going on.
Panel 9: He tells her to her surprise that he took the cushions off of the couch.
Summary: Well, we've all had that happen to us at some point. This would be a totally banal outing if Elly weren't mildly alarmed by yet another commonplace.
