My avatar was drawn for me by rOdd Perry, the artist half of the original BREVITY Comic team ( http://www.gocomics.com/brevity/2011/06/03 ), and is (very) loosely based on a photo of me. Thank you, rOdd! Occasionally, I edit it a bit. Please don't blame rOdd for the hats and hair bows.

    Wow… fourteen comments so far (not counting mine) about this strip…

    And FIVE of them, including the very first one, compare it to a three dog night.

     

    I guess nobody reads the other comments before posting….

    Sorry, Meg… but what’s GRS?

    Got a lot of results on Google … mostly company names… but nothing that seemed to work here.

  4. about 19 hours ago on Ballard Street

    Oh… you guys fixed it while I was typing…. LOL….

  5. about 19 hours ago on Ballard Street

    Um… Grog?

    Oh … never mind… I just think…

    (pardon me, Cleo pals…)

     

    No matter how comfortable Gary gets…

    I hope we’re never going to see him in the pubic arena.

  6. about 19 hours ago on Ballard Street

    I see that Cleo is admonished for playing with her food…

    In the January 25th, 2021 “Cleo and Company”, …on Sherpa….

    but tell me… who is she supposed to play with?

    I don’t see any doggie play dates lined up for her, or any doggie friends knocking at the door.

    Not even visits to the dog park.

     

    I realise that most of the neighborhood dogs are a little put off by Cleo’s losing behavior…

    I mean, you know, the weapons and all….

    and it’s not much fun always having to let her win.

    In fact, even when Claude and Clara play a game with her… well, we saw what happened to Claude’s poor little Monopoly car the other day.

     

    So why not play with some nice, friendly kibble?

    The kibble’s not afraid…. considering the alternative.

    It would MUCH rather play video games than face the inevitable…

    and it can always hope….

    if it manages to keep her distracted long enough, it might get too stale to eat, and be a permanent plaything.

    ( Um… but just between you and me, though… I have to say that a bag of kibble doesn’t have a great understanding of how things work. )

     

    Meanwhile… It feels welcome, cos it knows how much Cleo likes it.

    It’s willing to sit on the floor for days on end…

    and it never gets tired.

    And it plays enthusiastically, as if its very life depended on it…

    always believing that it has victory in the bag!

     

    Meanwhile, Cleo figures it’s only a minor transgression…

    since she didn’t hear a single “Confound it” in Clara’s reprimand.

    Have you ever tried picking up and carrying a wriggling, 65 pound, 3 foot long (counting the neck), stubborn, slippery, muscle, wrapped in loose skin?

    Teeth and slobber on one end, a flailing python attached to the other end, and clumps of claw sticking out of the middle.

    Poor Claude!

    Brrrr…. and welcome, friends… my fellow frozen Cleophiles….

    to the January 24th, 2021 “Cleo and Company” …on Sherpa.

     

    It makes me feel colder, just to look at poor, freezing Cleo.

    Claude may mock, but we in California have your back, poor basset baby.

    Last week was warmer… but tonight I’m shivering again, at a harsh 34°F.

     

    It was even colder a few weeks ago…. we had about 7 nights in a row when the mercury never climbed above 30°F …

    at least, not for almost 4 whole HOURS a NIGHT… between 3am and 7am.

     

    I think I hear distant violins… do you hear them?

     

    There was a human Admiral Peary, you know, Cleo.

    Interesting that your daydream shares his name.

    He’s interesting partly because of how much he changed over the years.

    He had passed away in 1920…. but the changes came in the latter half of the 20th century.

     

    In the 1960’s, I learned that he was a hero… but by the early 21st century, he seemed to be a different person.

    No one disputes his descriptions, so much like yours, of the unbearably icy, cold conditions…

    But some of the places and distances of his travels have been refuted….

    much like the travails of a pink-clad basset hound in Cleveland.

    But don’t worry Cleo.

    I get you.

    I’d say the most requested or sold out pies that I make for the Tiki are ones I’m not crazy about myself: key lime and pumpkin.

    (Sorry, Happy… never warm.)

    For me… apple, cherry, blueberry, peach…

    Occasionally a bit of banana or chocolate cream, but usually only my own or home made….. or at least made from scratch on the premises.

    I think in order to buy so much, they have to contract for things far in advance…

    and with produce, they also have to ship it long before it’s ripe so it’ll keep until it’s in the stores.

     

    Due to unforseen weather, on the due date it might still be TOO green to harvest or to ever ripen off the tree…

    but it’s too big a contract for the grower to lose, so it’s picked and sent anyway.

    Some Costco produce is great… But I’ve had the same problem with their pears and oranges.
