    Oh, I wish Lynn had drawn Elizabeth washing the dishes!

    You wouldn’t see anything for all the splashing water.

    I get that 4-year-old Lizzie is too young to wash dishes, but is the idea that she would drop the dishes on the floor and break them which would require the floor to be cleaned, or is the idea is that Lizzie would get dishwater all over the floor, so the floor would have to be mopped? I guess either would work for the joke, but I am not sure why John would let a 4-year-old wash dishes (aside from the usual “John is an incompetent parent” joke.)

    .Perhaps both happened. A good plan for Ellie would be to lay in a good supply of disposable tableware, flatware and serving ware the next time she leaves

    My four-year-old used to love to ‘help’ me wash the dishes. I gave her an old wooden crate to stand on and a few dishes to wash. I never had a broken plate or cup; a fair bit of water on the kitchen floor but then, guess what, we mopped the floor. She is a mother of two teenage daughters herself now and they are also very competent at helping in the house.

    Pretty sure your experiment with font colour hasn’t worked. I can’t read cyan on white …

    I was just showing off for someone looking over my shoulder. If you roll the mouse over it to select it, it will show white on blue.

    I was also unable to read t, but then I got the bright idea to highlight it. Then it turned into bright white letters on a dark blue page. VERY easy to read.

    This is very difficult to read. Please consider a different color next time, thanks….

    I rolled my cursor over it, to highlight it, and it was easy to read.

    Maybe Farley helped Lizzie “clean” the dishes by licking them…
