We transition messily to the Elly is terrible at putting up wallpaper arc with the obligatory giving in to the wicked urge to inflict bad wordplay on the masses.

(Strip Number 1339, Original Publication Date, 2 September 1988)

Panel 1: We switch focus back to the Pattermanse so that Elly can tell Anne that since it's been a loooong summer, it's good to get the kids back to school.

Panel 2: Having noticed that Elly should be at work right now, Anne asks her why she's at home; Elly explains that she's got a plumber coming in today to fix the kitchen sink.

Panel 3: As they head inside, Elly drops the H-bomb and says "HONESTLY! We've had nothing but hassles from this kitchen!" because she let Trash Bag Johnny talk her into letting him do most of the work himself. Anne asks what's wrong with the sink.

Panel 4: As she points to the ineptly-sealed drain pipe that's been leaking water over the floor for who knows how long, she says that when it drains, it pours instead of putting a bucket under it.

Summary: Don't expect anything about how dim John is to have not let a pro put it in properly. Expect her defending her need to tell a Dad joke.
