Role model

Happy birthday to my favorite Hoosier:

Stick some candles in the lasagna; it's Garfield's 30th birthday!

Word has it that, while the fat cat's creator, Jim Davis, is taking a low-key approach to marking this milestone, the folks at Paws Inc., will celebrate the day with a picnic, perhaps an afternoon of golf, maybe even some water balloons.

Garfield is, of course, the perfect, idealized version of the fat, lazy, always-hungry feline. No real cat could possibly live up to that image, although, heaven knows, mine try.

I think it would be a toss-up as to yours or mine winning the fat, lazy, always-hungry feline award. At any rate, I kow they talk to each other - wonder if they talk about us ?

Jim Davis gets serious bonus points in my book for showing up and throwing gang signs in a couple of guys' "Lazy Muncie" Youtube video.

Great minds DO think alike, Leo....trust me.
And believe me, you do NOT know what they say about "us"...!
