The one where Elly can't remember where she parked.

Synopsis: After a long day at work, we find Elly being told to watch it because it's really snowing out there. When she gets to the parking lot, she tells herself it's the kind of horrible blowy night that you wanna get into your car and crank the heater....as soon as you can find it.

Summary: This is the start of the Gordon redemption arc. It begins with Elly getting a new boring vehicle that's used for ferrying groceries, kids and lumber.

Renaming The Collections

As you all know, the 'whimsical' titles of the collections don't do a very good job of telling a prospective buyer what he or she might expect to find. As by way of example, it seems to me that "A Family Of Four" would do a much better job of explaining the first year of the strip than "I've Got The One-More-Washload Blues" ever could. With that in mind, I think it might be a fun thought experiment to improve on Lynn's handiwork and come up with better titles that reflect what's going on in the Patterson's lives.
