Thursday, 28 January 2016: Elly needs a diet called 'death.'

Elly and Mrs Baird ambush Phil with the lovely proposal that he move right next door so Elly can storm on over at will and nag him incessantly.

(Strip Number 4752, Original Publication Date, 29 January 1987)

Panel 1: As Phil drinks some coffee, Mrs Baird tells them that it's time for her to move to a smaller place that's easier for her to look after.

Panel 2: She wanted to tell Elly first in case she knew someone looking for a new place to live.

Panel 3: When Elly tells Phil it's a nice place, he's taken aback by the suggestion that he become her neighbor.

Panel 4: When Thelma offers to hold the mortgage, Phil says to HOLD EVERYTHING! because she and Elly are moving too fast.

Summary: Not only are they putting the cart before the horse here, the idea of spending the rest of his life listening to that dim-witted shrew Elly beefing at him unmolested because she won't let the past go is as hellish as having to live in the same neighbourhood as Ted and Sally Forth.

Lynn's travel plans.

It seems that I've been negligent in covering the newsletter section of the website. This is a shame because Lynn reveals astonishing ignorance of the world around her.

- At one point, Tasmania WAS a separate colony of the British Empire. This status ended when it and several other white settler colonies in that part of the world became a dominion like the one Lynn and I live in called the Commonwealth of Australia. It hasn't BEEN a separate place for 115 years or so but you can't tell her that without being shrieked at.

- Good luck with the drive around Iceland.

- She's gonna fit right in when she gets to Melbourne because hey, they're not going to notice another lapsed low-church Anglican with a lager-pickled brain.
