Know Peeps in Santa Cruz?

Hey Readers!

A favor- please tell your peeps in Santa Cruz to email the features editor of the Santa Cruz Sentinel.  (His name is Don Miller–

They changed up their comics page and dropped “Rhymes with Orange.”  It hurts the cause if you e-mail from far afield– just let your Santa Cruz friends know.

Here’s the announcement in the Sentinel about the changes.


And for your trouble, here is a picture of my dog’s snoutalicios head.

I’ve Decorated My Sofa With… Chairs


Why give the living room this fresh new look?  Because Rocky (the sofa-sized dog sleeping below the sofa) hurt his shoulder for the 3rd time and the vet said he shouldn’t be getting on or off furniture or up and down stairs for three weeks.

He has his fresh new harness on.  We found a sign at the park that says, “Always wear a red harness.”


The injury created a bit of a rough ride over Christmas break, so it was great timing to have Martha Gradisher fill in for me last week.  Martha rocks!




My Cat Is A Perv

It’s not just that he stares at you while you pee.



It’s that I got a call from a neighbor a third of a mile down the street.  They’d found his collar.  Inside their kitchen. And he had knocked their dinner tray off the kitchen island.

So he breaks and enters, trashes the place, rips off his clothing, and leaves.

Did I mention he came with the name Tom?  Apparently, that’s his last name.  His first name is Peeping.
