Well, paint me green and call me Gumby! It's a rather bland filler strip that has Annie telling Elly to treat herself to something.
Panel 1: We start today's strip at Annie's back porch. Elly, who's holding Lizzie in her arms says "I'd like to run downtown for an hour or so, Anne; would you look after Lizzie for me?" Annie says "Sure thing."
Panel 2: AS Elly passes a happy Lizzie over to her, Annie asks her what she has to do; Elly says that she's kind of down in the dumps so she thought that she'd go shopping.
Panel 3: Annie asks her what kind of shopping she'd be doing and uses shoes for an example; Elly, who hasn't it in her to buy cute shoes to feel better about life owing to a lack of imagination, says that she doesn't need shoes; she'll just get groceries instead.
Panel 4: Anne reminds her that buying groceries will not snap her out of her funk and makes her promise that she'll buy something nice for HERSELF for once; Elly agrees to this.
Panel 5: Elly laughs at Annie's saying "And it can't be edible unless it's chocolate."
Summary: It's about time someone out there that she'd actually listen to told Elly to treat herself to something nice; if Annie hadn't said so, Elly would continue on her un-merry way stinting herself in the stupid belief that denying herself the good things in life is good.
ETA: The latest banner reminds us all that Canadian Thanksgiving weekend is coming up; let's see if Lynn remembers that Americans have their turkey day a month and a half later.
