よつばと! Vol 4 Discussion Thread (Yotsuba&! Reading Club)

Finally finished! Just a few questions for you Kazzeon (or anyone else that would like to reply!) - and thank you so much in advance!

Page 181 - panel 5:
あのあと飛行機探したらキャンセルで一つだけ空いてたからさ
I’m in the funny position of being able to read most of this, but just not getting it:
after that + aeroplane + to look for + if (when?) + cancellation + one thing + only + to become empty + because/since + assertive sentence ending
"After that, when I looked for flights, since just one cancellation became available…
(のった = I flew!)
Am I close?

Page 182 - panel 2: みうら呼べよ - “call me Miura” - ??!!

Page 184 - panel 2:
ひまわりって代用の方むくれんじゃなかったっけ
I don’t get this one at all. I think my main problem is むくれん. Perhaps “to be taken off​” (the weeds, that is), but I really am quite lost.

Page 188 - panel 5: なんかお礼言っとかんとなぁ. I’m okay until we get to かんとなぁ. Any ideas?

Page 190 - and… done!

Thanks so much again Kazzeon! Or anyone else who might reply!

Like I say, I’m not sure how I managed to miss the whole second-half of volume 4, but I’ve read it now and that means I’m back up-to-date with the bookclub… 8 volumes finished and volume 9 up next as soon as there is demand!
