Couch Potatoes & a Giveaway

I’ve been a certified sofa spud all weekend due to a bout of illness, but I have company. Her name is Maisie.

Does this photo of her remind you of anyone?

For those of you who are “old codgers”* like moi, you might be reminded of Dagwood Bumstead from Chic Young’s comic strip Blondie:

Or it might make you think of this guy, another legendary comic-strip couch potato:

Andy Capp by Reg Smythe

I think I’ll go with the latter.

*Codger – derived from the expression: coffin dodger. You learn something new every day!

On another note, there is still time left to enter my Calmer Girls Giveaway. This one is for US only but next week I will be hosting one for everyone with Goodreads.

  1. Oh, I so miss Andy Capps! Not seen his comic strip in years. I will stick with Maisie, though; she is by far the cutest. Sorry about your illness, Jennifer. Hope you are feeling better.

    1. Thank you, Lois. It’s just a bug the hubs passed on to me (the sweetheart!)
      Andy Capp and Dagwood remind me of my dad reading the newspaper and me reading the comics, years and years ago. A distinct memory. πŸ™‚
