6 July 1988
Congratulations, Odie! You did something right for a change! TOING!!
7 July 1988
Well, Odie, you almost broke any bone in my body, but you did get me down from the tree. Someday I hope to do the same for you. But not today.
8 July 1988
Oh sure, this may look comfortable. But it has its risks. Lip splinters are no laughing matters.

20 July 1988
Boy, am I starved. I wonder what mummies eat? *
21 July 1988
I remember breakfast back home. Lying in bed. The smell of bacon on the griddle... The sound of mom giggling as she made patterns in the potato pancakes with my baby shoes. She's a disturbed woman.
22 July 1988
On your mark... Get set... PLOP Z
23 July 1988

26 July 1988
Garfield, you're tha laziest cat I know. You never met my grandfather. He was too lazy to get up to eat. He'd lie on the floor and throw his dentures at the refrigerator.
27 July 1988
I'm not appreciated out here. AAAYIEEEE!!! I spend all morning greasing his shoes and not even a thank you.
28 July 1988

29 July 1988
You fell off the curtains. So much for mountain climbing. I thought cats are supposed to land on their feet. So much for myth. CATS DON'T LAND ON THEIR FEET! So much for mystique.
