CHERDO DRAWS FRANKLIN AND CAPTURES HIM PERFECTLY

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

I hope you'll check out Cherdo on the Flipside today. I love Cherdo's drawings, and today's is the best ever. It's even better than when she drew me as a paper bag puppet wearing a bathing cap--one of those horrible bathing caps with the plastic flowers that stick out.

Today's drawing includes Franklin, and Cherdo captures him perfectly. He has a little grin on his face. I think it's because he's next to Cherdo's poodle Coco.

If you don't follow Cherdo yet, you should. Trust me. I don't know why you should, but trust me. Cherdo is a sweetheart and very funny. *I just realized this reads as if I don't know why you should trust me about following Cherdo. The reasons to follow Cherdo are many. I meant you have no reason to pay attention to me, except when I tell you to follow her. And when I tell you to do some other stuff, like send me money.

I have her phone number. Sometimes I call and leave a message in song on her voice mail. Songs have included "My Cherdo amour, lovely as a summer's day" and "The moment I wake up before I put on my make-up, I say a little prayer for Cherdo."

Cherdo hasn't even reported me to the police!




Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  1. I saw the picture this morning and Cherdo's story of her dog and the traumatic visit to the beauty shop. My dogs go on Wednesday next. They will also be wild and then fall dead asleep.

    1. Franklin doesn't like going to the groomer, but he remains quite calm. He's fine when he comes home.

  2. You sound perfectly stalkerific! (And I loved Cherdo's rendition of Franklin.)

    1. Stalking my ex-husband certainly wouldn't be fun.

    1. Does that mean you need to pee? When we were driving we said we needed to make a pit stop if we had to pee.

    1. Maybe you can get a heads up when the police are on their way so you can take photos of THE ARREST OF THE QUEEN OF GRAMMAR.

    2. I'm sure you can sell a photo of my arrest for a great deal of money.

    1. The flowered cap was a while back. I don't know if seeing it is a good idea. You might be blinded.

  14. Very cute picture of Franklin, but I have to confess, I scrolled down to her tips on things to do with rubber bands. It's not often that I find tips I didn't already know, but she managed to find a few. :)

  21. Cherdo fan here. And Franklin fan. Needless to say, I was very pleased by that drawing.

    I wish I got voice mails from people that weren't debt collectors (looking for the wrong people, of course).

    1. Email your phone number to me. I'll call and sing to you. The first year or so that I had my phone, I received numerous nasty phone calls for someone named Lisa. Lisa owed money all over the place, and she received collect calls from someone in jail. I did a little threatening with the debt collectors. They stopped calling me. Of course, I rejected the collect calls. Poor guys in prison, thinking Lisa abandoned them.
