Wednesday, February 8

"An'"s: One. It's been a while!

Panel 1: Oh, lord; I feel a flashback coming on. Or perhaps Elly's just starting the contemplation stage. That's not a flattering angle on her, BTW.

Panel 2: April looks like a small Mike.

Meanwhile, I'm wondering how that would play out, what Elly's proposing. Years ago, April told Grampa Jim how left out she felt because there were far fewer photos of her than of Mike and Liz, because she fell victim to Oops Baby Syndrome (although she might have fared better in the current era of digital cameras and so forth). Does she really want an album with 80,000 photos of her siblings and ten of her? Or, if they each get separate albums about themselves, how slim will hers be compared to Mike's and Liz's?

Panel 3: In other words, stuff that's been kicking around since the 1980s.

Panel 4: Another of those weird postures. Is Elly looking at April over her shoulder, or sidewise?

Panel 5: Well, it depends on what you call organized, of course. Not sure why April looks as if she's just lost a hot dog eating contest. She sure has a Junior Navet Nose, though, and of course Elly has the SC-EPE. At the end of the day, though, I think it's just a mom thing: saving absolutely everything that has a shred of sentimental value.
