Tuesday, 19 August 2014

Today's strip has Elly express a sort of berserk glee that she doesn't have to have children underfoot now. This lasts up until she starts wailing about the empty nest in a few days time.

(Strip Number 921, Original Publication Date, 20 August 1985)

Panel 1: As Elly puts one of the dresses she bought Lizzie away, John tells her that he cannot believe that she'll be going to kindergarten because it seems to him that it was just yesterday that they came home from the hospital.

Panel 2: It seems to him that it hardly seems possible that both kids are in school.

Panel 3: He asks Elly if she knows what this means. She does.

Panel 4: She proves that she does by leaping in the air and shouting the word FREEDOM!!

Summary: Sadly for her, not only does her need to be needed kill her good mood, imbecile Annie trudges over at will to let her ungovernable savages wreak havoc in the name of friendship.
