My birthday was this week. Another year older. Seems like just yesterday I had a birthday, too. Strange how they seem to be coming faster.
As you already know, Garfield is my favorite comic strip. It has been since June, 1978, when Jim Davis started publishing the strip. I moved away from my parents' hometown in October,1982. Every day from then until my dad died in December, 2005, Dad would cut the Garfield comic out of the newspaper and either save them for me, or occasionally I would receive a card in the mail filled with Garfield strips cut from mom and dad's newspaper. For years I kept them stashed in a huge box.
Well, that was more than I planned to tell you when I started this - haha!. I guess that kind of proves the point of this strip :). Wait. Was there a point? Oh yeah, I had a birthday and can totally relate to this comic today, having grown old with Garfield, I thought it was fitting.
