(Strip Number 1343, Original Publication Date, 10 September 1988)
Panel 1: The following morning, Elly wants everyone to come and look at her wallpapering job. Mike says "GOSH!!" because he's impressed and confused by his mom doing the work of two men.
Panel 2: She puffs herself up in glee when she tells the troops that she was going to hire someone to do it but then said "The Heck with THAT!!!" and did it herself.
Panel 3: Having noticed that everyone is not saying much, she wants them what they think. Mike starts off by saying that it's ever neat.
Panel 4: He astonishes her by asking "But don't daisies grow THIS way up?"
Summary: Not only has Elly wasted her time because she can't actually see straight, she has to pay a pro and look like a moron. Ah, well. It's Michael's turn to look like a buffoon starting tomorrow when he can't handle fantasy turning into a reality that has emotional needs and friends who could turn into enemies if they think they've been slighted.
