Caturday Picture Show: The Holiday Coloring Contest!

Lulu: “Hello friendlies! Lulu here! We are pre-empting the Caturday Matinee this week to present the Paper Bob Holiday 2020 Coloring Contest!”
Chaplin: “Who’s Paper Bob? Is he like Flat Stanley?”
Charlee: “I hope not. The last time Flat Stanley showed up, he stole a car and took Dennis on a car chase all around Southern California.
Lulu: “I don’t think Paper Bob is anything like Flat Stanley. See, Mama and Dada bought some flour and stuff mail order from Bob’s Red Mill and there was a coloring contest included in the package. I got hold of it and I thought it would be fun for us animals to do something with Paper Bob.”
Chaplin: “You mean like eat him?”
Lulu: “Uh, no. Well, maybe we can do that later. But first I thought we could have our own contest where we all make a little picture with Paper Bob, and then we let the judges review them.”

Lulu: “Oh I found some names in Dennis’s old Rolodex. Okay, I’ll start.”

Vermin: “HISS! You’re all going the wrong way!”
Spicoli: “You saw Santa back there too, right, dude?”
Lulu: “Of course.”
Spicoli: “Okay, just checking.”
Producer Smurf: “Have you smurfed any dogs or cats or field mice or guinea pigs or opossums around here today?”

As has become a holiday tradition around here, this Christmas I am re-running one of Dennis’s classic adventures, when he, Tucker, and Trouble resorted to extreme measures in an attempt to get off the “Naughty” list. As usual, nothing went as planned … Continue reading “Classic Dennis: The War on Santa”

Travels with Charlee (and Chaplin)

Pit Crew Member: “Sorry, guys, I checked with all the NASCAR sites on the West Coast and nobody has seen a couple of tuxedo cats flying around on a giant disk.”
Lulu: “Thanks. Spicoli, are you sure the GPS said it was plotting a route to NASCAR?”
Spicoli: “That’s what it sounded like, dude. I mean, is there any other word that sounds like ‘NASCAR’?”
Pit Crew Member: “‘Mascara’ sounds a little bit like ‘NASCAR’.”
