Victoria Day 2017

We end the arc with Lizzie making a Hallmark card-worthy comment about how people should be grateful for the little things.

(Strip Number 1295, Original Publication Date, 21 May 1988)

Panel 1: We start things off with Lizzie asking John "Isn't this a beautiful day?" and John agreeing.

Panel 2: Lizzie mouths treacly dialogue not very many seven year old girls would actually spontaneously say when she asks Daddy if he knows why we should be 'specially thankful for happy days like this.

Panel 3: John sets up the pandering by asking her why.

Panel 4: For some reason, the rather predictable answer about how somewhere, someone is having a sad day confuses him.

Summary: Given what happens tomorrow, we can be thankful that there wasn't a caption saying that it's the Pattersons' turn to have a sad one next.
