The new-run we're subjected to is yet another example of our being exhorted to feel sorry for Elly because of something 'thoughtless' John did. (Said 'thoughtless' thing was entertain the children as per instructions only to leave a bit of a mess behind for her to pick up.) Too bad that we all know that he isn't allowed to be right no matter how much he looks like a good guy to you or me or I might actually go for Lynn's cotton candy.

Panel 1: We start with MikeClone asking RetJohn if they can make paper snowflakes to pass the time.

Panel 2: We next see them at the kitchen table as RetJohn hands MikeClone some parer and scissors.

Panel 3: As the two of them do so, we see NeoLizic put one of the pieces of paper in her mouth.

Panel 4: She cries out because MikeClone won't hand her the scissors so she can poke her eye out or cut herself or something.

Panel 5: They all shout out with glee as they make more snowflakes.

Panel 6: They then tape them onto the picture window.

Panel 7: We next see RevElly on the porch with bags in hand. MikeClone tells her they've been making snowflakes.

Panel 8: She's stricken with horror and rage because they left a mess behind for poor, pitiful, downtrodden, ill-used her to clean up.

Summary: Like I said, I'd feel sorrier for her if I didn't already know that she would have yelled at John and the kids for tidying up the wrong way. They might have done so in a means that was efficient and effective and be unfair because it highlights how sucky she is.
