Did you know most cats shed their winter coats in warm weather, Garfield? - FUMP! - Hmmm mus' be spring.
2 April 1979
Spring is here. - The warm spring sun is coaxing trees to bud and flowers to bloom. Fledging songbirds are testing their lilting voices. Soft spring zephyrs are wafting the sweet scent of lilacs. Spring is here. - Big, fat hairy deal.
3 April 1979
There's nothing like a little spring weather to make one feel lazy. - I'd better be careful. - If I were lazier, I could slip into a coma.

Boy, am I in a bad mood. *Good Morning, Garfield* - POKE! - If there's anything a depressed person hates, it's a cheerful person.

11 April 1979
- ROWR! FFFT! - I think I hurt myself.
12 April 1979
I know you've been in a nasty mood this week, Garfield. Many of us occasionally feel angry for no reason at all...psychologists all it a free-floating anxiety. - SPLAT! FREE-FLOAT THIS! - I wonder if this ever happened to Freud.

Easy, boys. - WE LOVE YOU, GARFIELD! - Darn. That was the best deep blue funk I ever had going.

15 April 1979
Let's go check the mailbox, Garfield. - I love getting mail - It's just another reminder you're alive. That's a pretty heavy thought for a Monday.

How about some boiled cabbage for lunch, Garfield. - SWIPE! - Or maybe some coleslaw. Now you're talking.

24 April 1979
Hmmm a whistle - - Must be broken.
25 April 1979
Claws are great. - They allow us cats to walk right up trees. - There's only one problem.
26 April 1979
- POP - They don't call me "Lightning Lips" for nothing.
27 April 1979
I just want you people to know how much we cats appreciate you. Without you, who would feed us? Who would love us? - And most important of all... - Who would change our kitty litter?
