The one where Mike absorbs the first of many lectures about how hard farm life is.

(Original Publication date, 20 July 1991)

Panel 1: A few seconds after Mike meets the meat, Danny tells him to bring the extension cord he's holding with him because they'll need in in the shed tomorrow.

Panel 2: As Mike looks up, Dan asks him what he's looking at. Mike says "The sky....it's so clear out here!"

Panel 3: He compares the stars to fireworks and then tells Dan to look at the moon. He then says that he never knew the prairie sky could be so beautiful. Dan agrees.

Panel 4: He then proves that he's superior to Fiona by saying that it's one of the few things that a farmer gets for free.

Summary: This is what Elly means by a good experience: listening to the pub bore spout country-fried platitudes about what an armpit of a life farming actually is.
