We continue our look at Autumn in Milborough with John reminding us that he's really a great big stupid kid.

(Original Publication Date, 2 October 1990)

Panel 1: We find John raking leaves. There is a look of mild consternation on his face because for once, he has not stirred up a cloud of the word "RAKE!" when doing so.

Panel 2: He then looks in one direction for some reason. One would assume from the past that he's waiting for Mike to show up and do minimum work.

Panel 3: He then looks in another direction. His being as obviously 'sly' as Howard Sibshaw from "Last Of The Summer Wine" (whose leading export is actually being stupid enough to believe that he's fooling his wife) tells me that we're about to see him do something stupid.

Panel 4: What he's actually doing is making sure no one watches as he plays in the leaves like a big, goofy kid.

Summary: This is a relatively good call on his part. If Elly sees him, she'll start running around screaming "What's the number for 911?! Your father's heart is inflamed!!!"
