Do you know why I hate Nermal? It's not because he's so young , tiny and cute... He reminds me I'm so old, fat and ugly.

I can't reach that pie, Nermal. What say we team up? -
2 September 1981
Maybe I could be as popular as Nermal if I learned to dance. I think I hurt something.

Sorry you have to leave so soon, Nermal. But, I wasn't... I'm not afraid of him wearing out his welcome. I don't want him to break in a new one.

I'll have a steak, fries and a large Cola. And my cat here will have an order or lasagna. WHAP! Make that a double order. BONK! Perhaps a triple order. GOOSH! Heck with it. Give him the whole pan. And give it wings.

SWIPE! I hate mondays.

Hee hee HA HA HA! When you're built low to the ground, a walk in the grass can be ticklish.

Hello, tree. Hello, flowers. Hello, apteryx. -

There you have it, folks. Medical science has a cure for almost everything but the common cold... And the early morning stares.

YAWN ARRRGH! Why are you wearing my reading glasses? All the better to scane you with, my dear.
12 September 1981

You're no longer a kitten, Garfield.
17 September 1981
If cats can run up trees, why can't cats run DOWN trees as well? Garfield, you are very, very stupid.

Owning a pet is ideal for single people. We have companionship without the hassle of raising a family. Wipe your feet before coming into the house! Okay, dad.
19 September 1981
Shoo, mice. Get out of my vitamin pills. Mice get into everything. Somebody could chase them out of here. I wonder why they wanted the vitamins? It beats me.
20 September 1981
Guess what, Garfield? We are going back to the farm. It will be nice to get back in touch with mother nature. When you find her, give her my best.
21 September 1981
It will be nice seeing mon and dad on the farm. Maybe we can help with the chores, Garfield. No way. I'd get dizzy rotating the crops.
22 September 1981
I'm bored...bored, bored bored. Things could be worse I guess. SPLOOT Bingo.

It's just my luck to fall into a hog waller. Nothing is less appealing than a muddy cat. Hello there, good lookin'. Oh shut up.
24 September 1981
How can you hogs stand to lie in a waller all day? The mud keeps the flies off and keeps us cool. And if we ever get out, the mud dries instantly.
25 September 1981
It's time to go home, Garfield. Let me knock that mud off you. CRACK! Thanks...I think.
26 September 1981

28 September 1981
Where is it written I have to act like a cat?! Why can't I act like a moose instead? Stop being silly, Garfield. Careful, fella. I've gored people for less than that.
29 September 1981
Hello, I'm a bluebird. Garfield, you're too big to be acting this way. But I'm small for a sperm whale. I'm thinking of getting you some professional psychiatric help. You mean there are AMATEUR psychiatrists?
