Panel 1: Oh boy. Odd perspective on the stairs. Martyr Elly cursing in her thought balloon while she makes something more difficult than it has to be. Her frame is more slender than it usually is, and April has a dancer's pose.

Panel 2: Elly looks furious. You know, she could assign this task to April. That's what my mom used to do, although in that case it was because my mom knew I'd do it faster and better :::smug:::. And is that a staircase or an airport people-mover?

Panel 3: Yeah, it's a people-mover. And Elly's boobs are defined for the first time in who knows how long!

Panel 4: That is some serious potato-nose. Also a blast from the past. It's been years since we've seen Elly struggle to balance the reconcile the standard her mom set with the other obligations she has that her mom didn't. And it's almost funny!

So, although this doesn't count as a not-April strip, I assume it signifies preparation for Christmas. Which means Liz will arrive, either with Constable Wright, or at least with flashbacks of their courtship. Tentative sigh of anticipation!
