Shrdlu our Office Cat returned to La Feria last weekend from his vacation in the pines where he spent much time in the snow. We heard him coming, for he had taken up the habit of the school girls. He had bells tied to his feet. Also his tail. And…

by Gail Brandt What is the significance of a date?  Depends on your frame of reference. If the date of  December 7, 1941, is mentioned… U. S. history students will tell anyone that it is the day of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. If the date of June 6th,…

by Gail Brandt As I get older I have found that I feel bound by older traditions and standards. Things that did not seem to matter much as a child or a teenager. And, it doesn’t seem to take but a second for those memories, that are connected to those…

We’re pretty busy these days and have been having already burned the candle at both ends for several weeks, we are just a little bit weary of going back to the office after supper. So Shrdlu, our office cat, that splendid feline creature of shrewdness and nocturnal prowess, is holding…

Shrdlu our Office Cat is half-Persian, half-Alley, and half-Mountain Lion. That makes him a cat-and-a-half, which he is beyond question. He doesn’t like not having seasons – noticeable, that is, down here in the Valley. He’s like a young man who can’t make up his mind whether he wants to…

Shrdlu our Office Cat gets pretty caustic sometimes about the customers. That’s the reason very few of our customers ever actually see our cat. Sometimes he is downright rude. We kick him under the desk when a customer comes in. In one of his moody moments this week, he told…

That name… Ginny Drawe… generates a plethora of words, metaphors, and similes. Just ask any of the 892 kindergarten students who passed through her door. Each would offer similar stories, but then again, each would have a very personal story or stories to tell. Which zoo animal were you? Who…

The keeping of Shrdlu, of course, is another story. If there’s anything we don’t like, it’s a Smart Alec cat. But we learned different. That dog-gone cat is downright smart. The other day, for example, a big, black, fuzzy tarantula stalked out from behind one of the presses and chased…

Shrdlu our Office Cat had a hectic week-end. Every dog in the community happened by while he was resting up, snapped at him. Since the responsibility of getting the newspaper printed is Shrdlu’s, if your paper is late this week, you can blame it on the dogs. Shrdlu probably will…
