In today's strip, Connie's expressing regret that Elly is going on vacation leads to Elly's taking an unsubtle swipe at how monstrous her excruciatingly-average kids are.

(Strip Number 4029, Publication Date, 3 July 1981)

Panel 1: As our story resumes, we find ourselves in the back yard watching Elly and Connie sitting at a picnic table drinking iced tea while Mike and Lawrence eat popsicles in the background; Connie says that she doesn't see Elly every day but she is going to miss her.

Panel 2: As she cleans a reluctant Mike's face (with Farley licking the sweet-tasting goo off of Lizzie), Elly reminds her that they're only going to be gone two weeks.

Panel 3: As Mike and Lizzie yell at one another in the background, Connie glumly states that she knows but the neighborhood still changes somehow.

Panel 4: Elly smirks like a resident of Cancerview as she asks if Connie is talking about the noise or the property values.

Summary: Har-de-har, Elly! We get that raising kids pretty much on your own is hard work but we don't need another reminder that you think that you woke up with that husband and those kids with no idea how it all happened.
