(Strip Number 4114, Original Publication Date, 26 December 1981)
Panel 1: We start the week off with Mike holding up two fairly ugly looking winter boots and asking Carrie "Aww, Grandma!! Why do I have to wear THESE boots?"
Panel 2: She looks at the messy boot tray and says "Because I found two of them."
Summary: What we're looking at is, of course, Carrie Patterson not-so-subtly slamming Elly for not running a tight ship; this is why she and Will agreed to sit for them while they went on Honeymoon Number One: to cure Mike and Lizzie of the bad habits they picked up from their inept mother and dolt father.
