Happy Birthday Garfield!
Well, today is June 19 and as is traditional on this blog, I'm posting to wish Garfield the cat a very happy birthday. Of course, only a few people know why I do this every year, but for those who do know, it makes perfect sense. Anyway, this year, the Garfield comic strip, which debuted on June 19 1978 turns forty, making the tubby tabby forty years old. His owner, John, is probably in his seventies by now, but that's the magic of comics ... Garfield and Jon don't have to age in real time.
