Typing up labels for 400 envelopes, one... at... a... time. Can't automate it, they're all different. Z-z-z. Trying to stay awake long enough to get a good chunk of them done by tomorrow.

Decided to create my own lolz photo to shake the cobwebs out, that's Sam of blessed memory, go ndéanai Día trocaire air, he's sitting on the couch looking just like I've interrupted his enjoyment of Garfield.

Great pikchor. Based on the art work, I'd guess that's book #2...

The strip in the lower right (from Sam's perspective) is one of my favorites. Jon's eating, and tells Garfield and Odie not to bother begging. Lyman comes in and asks, "what's to eat," to which Jon replies, "nothing. I'm eating the last food in the house." The last panel has Lyman begging next to the pets.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.
TK, if it was anyone else, I'd be terrified that they could identify not only the book, but also remember the strip. But since itz you, well then... ;)

You have nothing to fear, I am a recovered fanatic
Allow me to explain: I own the first thirty-three Garfield books, and read them often enough that when I started to recognize (and place) recycled gags, I stopped reading Garfield altogether.

From the time I was about eight, until eighteen, the most uttered phrase out of my mouth was, "That's like in one of my Garfield books, when...".

Comics bring joy, and surprising insight to the world. When I stopped quoting "Garfield," I replaced it with "Calvin and Hobbes."

Re: You have nothing to fear, I am a recovered fanatic
I grew up with all the "intellectual" comics such as Asterix and Tintin (yeah yeah English versions only I know), Peanuts and Family Circle. And not a small slice of Hagar and later Footrot Flats.

I was never a fan of the pulp US ones such as Marvel and DC. But in later years when the internet turned up, it opened a whole new world of comics!

Shame very few of the creators get to make a living from it.

I didn't come across Calvin and Hobbes until very recent years, as sadly it was never syndicated or released in Australia.

Now that is a tragedy of epic proportions. C&H should have been published in every nation...

We as Americans miss out, for the most part, on Asterix and Tintin. And so many of the others, like Spirou, Gaston Lagaffe, Nasreddin Hoca, and on and on. There's something to be said for broad cultural awareness. And that's not knowing about broads from other countries, you bunch o' deviants! ;)

Fear not. We had the first half-dozen Garfield books, and kept them in the bathroom reading rack.

*Chuckles* I shared my books (1-11, which were all that was published at the time) with my third grade class. Surprisingly, not one was stolen, though #5, which was the first book I received, suffered some damage.

Re: You have nothing to fear, I am a recovered fanatic
Garfield was a favorite of all my kids. By the time the strip got too repetitive, the kids had moved on to other things, so they got the best of what Davis had to offer. I think we had all of the books at one time, and yes, many of them are very quotable. So my mind is at ease. ;)

*Chuckles* At least I can't tell you the titles, except that #1 is "Garfield at Large."
