Talking Baseball

Talking Baseball

In honor of the start of baseball season, aka “the playoffs,” here are two real oldies from 1990, featuring young Gene. As you probably know by now, there’s a bit of weirdness going on in the current Arlo & Janis. Sometimes, I just have to get a little weird, especially when things are in a bit of a rut. It seems to help. Some readers hate these flights of fancy, and others enjoy them. I’ll just say, I hope you’re enjoying the week-long take on cats. I had meant to give credit where credit is due within the strip itself, but deadlines and the usual last-minute discombobulation overtook me. Much but not all of the information I used in the cat strips came from the excellent two-part episode “The Story of Cats,” from the long-running Nature program on PBS. I hope they don’t mind.

  1. Explore has a webcam, The Naledi Cat Eye, near a pond in S Afr. Thought that was the pond’s name, but turns out the cam is at the eye level of a leopard, to give viewers a different perspective.
    Jerry, hope your cat will be ok.

  2. Update on Cilla: She has a very rare type of glaucoma. We are to put drops in her eye 4 times a day. She’s being a good girl and it doesn’t seem to be bothering her. It may come down to surgery or letting her go. Sorry, had to stop for a few. I’m 70 now and don’t drive anymore. I sold the convertible, but I can’t let the other one go. I tend to think now of what I could have and should done but I remind myself that it’s never wrong, and never too late, to do the right thing.

  3. Jerry I sold my beautiful almost undriven Mustang. I cannot drive because of pain meds for cancer. I understand totally. My dream boat is someone elses dream in Washington state. Things are not so bad but our fur babies are not things. I understand. Love, jackie

  4. Jimmy I am enjoying the cats. Your take is intriguing. I will post a note about how ONE man almost killed all the cougars and came close to making them extinct. There is connection of course to where I am from. My mom thought he was a super hunting hero whereas I thought he was a sorry piece of subhuman.
