(Strip Number 4202, Original Publication Date, 22 July 1982)
Panel 1: We start off with Mike and Lizzie using the couch as an impromptu trampoline as a means of expressing how excited they are about going to Vancouver by train.
Panel 2: He then asks Elly why she'd waited until the day before they left to tell him and Lizzie.
Panel 3: Elly says that she and John still wanted to have some springs left on the couch.
Summary: This is the sort of material that inspires my flights of hyperbole about how Lynn seems to want to abolish childhood; it's not easy to cope with over-stimulated children by any stretch of the imagination but our girl seems to enjoy depicting Elly being overwhelmed, confused and defeated by her offsprings.
