The one where Liz taakes April for a walk so can deliver a fridge-worthy comment.

(Original Publication Date, 19 May 1991)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching a smiling Liz carry April in a sling on a breezy late-spring day.

Panel 2: She calls April's attention to a butterfly on a wall.

Panel 3: She then points her to a singing bird perched on a tree branch.

Panel 4: She smiles as she splashes in a puddle.

Panel 5: As it starts to drizzle, Liz smiles as a cat meows at her and April.

Panel 6: April grimaces as it starts to rain.

Panel 7: Liz rings the bell to be let back in.

Panel 8: Elly smiles back when Liz smiles.

Panel 9: As Elly holds April, Liz says "Know what, Mom?"

Panel 10: What Elly is to know is that everthing seems more wonderful when you're with someone who's seeing it for the first time.

Summary: This is a pleasant strip with a good moral lesson that is what most of us talk about when talking about why we used to like the strip. It's also the last one in which the Sundays are out of order for a while because today's strip should have been "Mike doesn't understand what he's doing to piss Martha off."
