Snarky Candiru2

In today's strip, we start to see why it is that John probably thinks that Elly sits on her arse eating bonbons like so much Peggy Bundy. That's because she wants to wear her good earrings while toting hay onto a waiting tractor. 

(Strip Number 444, Original Publication Date, 20 July 1983)

Panel 1: We find Bev on the back of Danny's tractor exhorting John, Mike and Laura to lift that load and tote that bale as they load hay onto it.

Panel 2: She then tells Mike to flex those muscles that she, John, Elly and Lynn think have deteriorated owing to soft living.

Panel 3: A few minutes later, John tells Elly to finish getting ready because they need more hands out on the field. She tells him to wait just a minute.

Panel 4: Once she finds her other earring, she'll join them. Elly's impracticality baffles him.

Summary: It doesn't confuse me though. That's because I remember that Elly probably thinks that Lisa Douglas is what a farm wife is suppsed to look like, DAHlink.
