"Table for One" SOLD

“Table for One”

8 x 8in oil on museum quality panel

Things get lost in translation sometimes.  The maitre d’ probably didn’t realize that Eddie was a cat or that his assistant, Phyllis, was a mouse.

I mean, how could he– the reservations were made by phone.  And poor guy–when he asked for the name Phyllis told  him to just look for the dude “wearing the tuxedo”…..

I would have warned him, if only I’d known.  Phyllis is way too fidgety–she never sits down, so she never reserves her place.
And Eddie??
Well, when he has Phyllis reserve a table for one  he means  a table for one.

One tuxedo wearing cat who will lounge out fully in your fine dining establishment, sucking his teeth, grooming his fur and making attitudinal remarks to anyone who happens to glance his way with “Hey buddy, what are you looking at??  You wanna a piece of this, cause I don’t think you do”.

And that’s before he’s had his first drink.

Just thought I should mention this in case Eddie ever has Phyllis to call and invite you out to dinner.

Be prepared for two things.

A table for one  and the tab.

Yeah, Eddie is famous for inviting people out to dinner then disappearing –sometime between snorkling down several shrimptinis and the tab showing up.

Please Note: This is No. 16 in the Eddie and Phyllis series.

    I love Eddie. I really do. He reminds me (too much so) of our Phillo, except that Phillo isn’t black and white (like our Benny), but all black. I love Eddie’s cattitude – so much like Phillo’s. They can sometimes drive us either to distraction or simply drive us nuts, but we find them irresisible and adorable (and they know it!).

    More Eddie paintings and Eddie anecdotes, Dreama. Wonderful!ReplyCancel

    I enjoy so much how much delight you take in Eddie. Pets are so much fun which of course allows us to excuse the havoc they can create. Beautiful painting.ReplyCancel
