A pleasant afternoon heads towards its end when John lets the little kid in him come out for a bit.

(Strip Number 4968, Original Publication Date, 20 May 1988)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly ask John where Lizzie is; he tells her that she's at the park and volunteers to fetch her.

Panel 2: When she says that she'll get Lizzie, John says that, no, he'll get her.

Panel 3: After all, Elly's busy getting supper on so it's (literally) the least John can do to go and get her.

Panel 4: We next see John and Lizzie on the swing set having a nice-ish time.

Summary: While it is sort of cute that John let his little kid flag fly, the problem is that Lynn's refusal to understand that it's not the job of every adult in the drainage area to look after her brood really tends to bug the crap out of me. Well, that and the pregnant possibility of notes that display Lynn's ignorance of the world.
