Having finally learned about the renovation, Mike and Lizzie do not trust John not to make a total mess of it.

(Strip Number 1304, Original Publication Date, 18 June 1988)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Lizzie react to Elly carrying a box of kitchen utensils by asking what's going on because she thinks that they might be moving.

Panel 2: Elly tells her that she's cleaning out the kitchen so that Daddy can tear out the cupboards.

Panel 3: When Mike asks where they're supposed to eat, Elly says that she's setting up a hotplate in the basement.

Panel 4: When she says not to worry because Daddy knows what he's doing, I'm not sure if they're rolling their eyes because they remember his breaking his foot because he stupidly bought too big a turkey or if they remember the mess with the dumpster. All I know is that John can be a big damned klutz every so often.

Summary: The interesting thing is that this does not lead to our gazing in horror watching John wreck the house. This actually leads to yet another reminder that Elly simply cannot tolerate the presence of left-overs and wonders why her selfish family make her fat by not eating everything on their plate like she did growing up.
