    Well, if it was too popular, then he wouldn’t have to resort to this
    -
    I am not so sure T.J. would have been satisfied with a popular business, unless that business involved scamming someone.

    Here’s how I think Lawrence will find out:
    -
    1. It will be anyone but Connie who tells him. Charlie Brown could walk in from Peanuts and do it before Connie will. You don’t get a setup like this unless it means someone else is going to tell.
    -
    2. Michael after he overhears Elly talking to John. Or Lizzie.
    -
    3. Elly inadvertently mentions it as she is screaming
    instructions to Michael or Elizabeth outside about staying off their yard since they are getting ready to sell their house.
    -
    4. Ted McCaulay tells Lawrence as a part of his effort to woo Connie back to him.
    -
    5. The real estate agent tells Lawrence, when he/she explains why he/she is there or better yet as he/she puts a FOR SALE sign up in Lawrence’s yard.
    -
    6. Lawrence’s teacher at school when she explains to him how is transferring to a school in Thunder Bay.
    -
    7. The moving van drivers as they explain to Lawrence why they are packing up his stuff.
    -
    8. The airline stewardess as they explain to Lawrence why his airplane ticket is only one way.
    -
    9. The presenter of the World’s Worst Mother Award as she explains to Lawrence how his mother managed to earn that award.

    It is a little disconcerting to see that T.J. is not the least bit affected by the idea he might have been caught in the blast. Disconcerting, or a little suspicious. If any firefighters come to put out that fire and realize this is the same T.J. who scammed them some years ago, they might be calling for an arson investigation.

    It’s a good thing T. J.’s business is so unpopular or there might have been dozens of injured customers around.

    Please let Ann Eiffel be the insurance claim adjustor.
    -
    That would be very amusing. I hope Evans goes with it.

    There was a tragedy in Phillie recently when a food truck that was using propane for cooking purposes blew up, after the tank developed a leak and a spark set the leaking gas on fire. Two women died in that explosion.
    -
    There is some pretty good video of it on-line. It makes the T.J. explosion look mild.

    The trolls seem to be divided into camps, namely “bash Elly”, “John puts his foot in his mouth”, “Michael is a pig” or “Elizabeth the brat”.

    It sounds like we have a comic strip where there is something for everyone to enjoy.

    I guess you didn’t read that middle panel.
    -
    Of course I did. I guess you didn’t understand that middle panel or the comic strip. Elly is trying to guilt Connie into not moving by playing the friendship card, the parent card and the son card. Do you think Elly is really concerned the effect Connie’s move will have on her parents or Lawrence’s school friends? Even if you do, Elly’s motivation for trying to keep Connie from moving is revealed in her final panel thought bubble. Lynn Johnston uses it to tell us readers that Elly is self-motivated, even if she isn’t telling Connie that.
    -
    And if you need further proof of it, all you have to do is look at the Lynn’s Notes for today which Cadbury nicely reproduced for us. “I cried for me” is what it says in the final line.

    Lynn’s Notes (from fbofw.com/strip_fix):
    When my friend Nancy Lawn left for Edmonton

    -
    It’s been awhile since Lynn has mentioned Nancy Lawn. Nancy’s daughter is named Deanna and was the source of the character Deanna Sobinski’s first name, little Michael’s love interest.

    @howtheduck
    If you hate a character in a cartoon, don’t read it

    I have this sudden feeling of deja vu.
