The mailman is going to rue the day he put on that silly uniform when he opens Jon's mailbox today. Boy, is he going to be surprised. Boy, am I stuck.

Leave it up to me to get stuck in this mailbox. So much for my ambush attempt on the mailman. Here he comes now! -

It's fun to find familiar shades in the clouds. There's an old standard. A dog cloud chasing a a cat cloud up a tree cloud.

Don't even think about it.
16 April 1985
A lot of people don't like fish. You can't hug them. You can't take them for a walk on a leash. They have no sense of humor and all they do is eat and sleep. Wait a minute! I just described me!
