(Strip Number 763, Original Publication Date, 13 December 1984)

Panel 1: We switch back to the Pattermanse for a second. As Elly does her ten daily loads of laundry, she notices that John is taking a long time getting home and wonders why he isn't back from doing the shopping.

Panel 2: She is convinced that only one place could have made him lose track of time like this.

Panel 3: Since he isn't a bar hopper or skirt chaser, her angry assumption is that he's at a hardware store having a storegasm looking at power tools.

Summary: While this would have been an excellent guess, he's prevented from doing so because he's getting a cast put on the foot he usually sticks in his mouth
