The wonderfulness of “Astral Weeks”

    Thank god you don’t have a pet bird.

    I think you may have struck upon the marketing idea that will save us all… “BUT WAIT… There’s more! It’s not just a handy dandy source of local information, it’s also a cat mat that fits with any decor… NOW how much would you pay? Order now, and yours will come pre-creased for maximum portability AND feline comfort…”

    I forgot: “And about 14 bucks cheaper than a Snuggie…”

    One of those jobs where a newspaper can do what a laptop cannot — like wedging the fire door open when going out for a cigarette.Nice paint job on Dexter. Named for the TV character?zzzzzzzz

    Larz: Dexter is indeed named for the TV character. It was our daughter’s idea.

    I had a cat almost all the time growing up that looked identical.Years ago I sent complimentary copies of my newspaper to advertisers and one of the advertisers would never acknowledge reading it but commented routinely it was so appreciated because it was a perfect fit for their bird cage at home.

    Clearly, Dexter has heard the newspaper-as-fish-wrap legend and wants to be first in line to pounce. As he is sitting on an Ipswich story, it appears that fried clams are on the menu as well.
