No more of this sniveling sissy stuff. I'm getting out of this tree like a man. On the other hand, sniveling does have its attributes.

I gotta get out of this tree. Oh well, they tell me a cat always lands on his feet. However, THEY failed to mention the pain.
2 April 1983
We must have lunch sometime. Things aren't always as they seem.
3 April 1983
Hey, Garfield, let's take a vacation. We'll go someplace tropical. Save your money. Go sit in your aquarium.
4 April 1983
Vacation is going to be so great, Garfield. We'll get away from this rat race. There'll be no hassles. A change of pace would be nice.
5 April 1983
Hey, Garfield, what do you think of this shirt for our vacation? Tah-dah! That's awful. Do you know how many turkeys were destroyed to make that shirt?

7 April 1983
I hope you don't mind flying, Garfield. Some animals don't travel well. Nonsense. If a dog can be a World War I flying ace, I can surely fly commercial.
8 April 1983
Just bear in mind, Garfield, even though we're leaving on vacation... And even though we're going to have fun... It's always nice to get back home.
9 April 1983
10 April 1983
Tell me, Garfield. Are you nervous about flying? I take no chances.
11 April 1983
I think you'll enjoy flying, Garfield. It's a very comfortable and smooth way to travel. Then what are these little bags for? The easter egg hunt?
12 April 1983
No pets allowed. This is my son. He has a body hair problem. How old are you, sonny? Rowr. That's baby talk for "one going on two".
13 April 1983
crunch crunch What do you think of airline meals, Garfield? GULP The only thing with food content was the plastic fork I just ate.
14 April 1983
The captain has advised that the "Fasten Seat Belt" sign be observed in case some slight air turbulence is encountered.
15 April 1983
Well, Garfield, how did you like your first airplane ride? Aside from the nausea, cramps and indigestion, I'm fine. Have a nice day. HAVE A NICE DAY?! LET HER LIVE, GARFIELD! LET HER LIVE!
16 April 1983
17 April 1983
Do you know what I love about the tropics, Garfield? I have a feeling you're going to tell me. It's the miles and miles of sparkling beach. It may be a beach to you, but it's just a sandbox to me.
18 April 1983
There's one thing I love about the tropics. grrrr FLIP! The tiny dogs.
19 April 1983
You don't seem to be having a good time, Garfield. A keen observation. What's the problem? I tell you what you do. Find the biggest, heaviest fur coat you can and put it on. Then go lie in the blazing sun for a few hours and see how manyyouks you have.
20 April 1983
Tell me, my little wahine, what do you do? I'll bet you walk along the beach all day, then go home to your little thatched hut at night, right? I'm a computer programmer from Cleveland. Close. How about a date? He didn't even blink.
21 April 1983
This is the life, isn't it, Garfield? More fun than a cat should have. Nothing to do but lie here in the sun. Listening to your brain bake. Are you bored, Garfield? Is there sand in your swimsuit?
22 April 1983
This is going to upset you, Garfield... Because I know you've had a great time. But it's time we think about going home.
23 April 1983
La la la There's nothing like a bubble bath to cure what ails you, Garfield. pop pop POW! Hey, Jon, what happened to you guys? You wouldn't believe me if I told you.
24 April 1983
Dear Garfield, what is your favorite all-time film? It's "Old Yeller". I love movies with happy endings.
25 April 1983
And just what do you think you're doing? Asserting my cathood?
26 April 1983
Garfield, why is it cats like to get out at night? That's when we like to sing on fences. In the daylight, we'd be easy targets.
27 April 1983
Today is thursday, and that's lasagna day. Here's your cat food, Garfield. Will there be anything else? Let me jog your memory.
28 April 1983
Why do you have such large teeth, Garfield? All the better to eat you with, my dear. Stop that! Obviously, sir, you are not a patron of the classics.
29 April 1983
I saw an awful movie last night called "Alien Dog." It was about this gigantic mutt that terrorized the world. However, they did dispatch him with a rather clever ploy. They electrified a 12-story fire hydrant.
