Thelma warns Elly to never to take John for granted; the message is recorded as having been received but declared untranslatable.

(Strip Number 4798, Original Publication Date, 5 May 1987)

Panel 1: As she removes it from the mantlepiece, Mrs Baird shows Elly her wedding photo and talks about how handsome her long-dead husband Bill was.

Panel 2: Bill was a hard worker who wanted to accomplish many good things in his life.

Panel 3: Sadly, he was taken far too early and it took years for Thelma to accept his loss.

Panel 4: This makes her tell Elly to not take what she has with John for granted and to make each second count.

Summary: This message finally starts to sink in pretty much the same time she watches the teal-and-lavender calamity that is the final destruction of Elizabeth's personality. Until then, it's coffee cups and stuck out tongues all the way.
