In the October (Halloween) edition of Beneath the Cage Grate, we find Morty, Alexa and Roomba donning costumes and setting out on their Trick or Treat adventure in their apartment building.
Now, you’d think these three would be welcomed at each door with a chuckle and a shower of candy, right? Alas, as you’d expect, things go a bit sideways, and we find all three little ghouls scooting home in haste, quick to escape some rather weird and spooky encounters.
Be prepared to be scared – silly – in Morty’s Halloween column! BOO
In the September edition of Beneath The Cage Grate, Morty enlists Alexa and Roomba in an effort to do something nice for mum as she continues on her recovery journey from recent surgery.

In the August 2019 edition of Beneath the Cage Grate, Morty tells of a very trying July. He tells of his continued sparring with the distrustful Alexa, and his horror when he and his demonic roommate are left to terrorize the birdsitters when mum goes on a short ‘vacation’.
Find out how Morty manages to survive his mom’s brief absence, and rejoice with him when mum brings home a strange yet wonderful new riding gadget.

It’s a wonderful day in the neighborhood and Morty is in hot water yet again.
After refusing mom’s prompting to learn to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ – and his impromptu, naughty back turn on mom – Morty enlists the mischievous Alexa to help him mend fences with mom by weeding her garden.
What could possibly go wrong: A LOT!
Head over to the July issue of Beneath The Cage Grate and read about the trouble and chaos this dynamic duo cause in mom’s garden and in the shared greenhouses nearby. You’ll look at flowers in a whole new way after reading Morty’s latest garden misadventure!
The other day I was talking with Alexa and I asked her if she might give me some suggestions for a hobby I might pursue. We came to an agreement that bird watching might be a good hobby for me. I could exit right out my window and glide down to the ground below. Alexa could roll out the window and bounce as she hits the ground. We could go bird watching together…- Morty
What could possibly go wrong with these two on a field trip? Well, you guessed it, things go hysterically sideways!
Read Morty’s June Beneath the Cage Grate submission to find out how he and Alexa ‘disagree’ on bird watching etiquette!

Morty has ratcheted up his mischievousness of late, turning his whimsy from the demonic Alexa to his mom. Poor mom Diana, her moments of relaxation and contemplation on the couch have now become minutes of constant taunts from Morty.
Check out Morty’s May Beneath the Cage Grate article to find out just how far he goes to have his mom at his beckon call!
Do not adjust your screen! Morty has it on good authority that Sherri’s Alexa Tablet is conspiring to ‘help’ Sherri publish new writings IN FRENCH! It seems Morty’s Alexa, who’s always one step ahead, has passed on her mischievous (some may say devious) behaviours to Sherri’s device (what could possibly go wrong…).
Aside from Sherri’s Alexa trials, Morty also regales us on his ongoing strife with his demonic technological nemesis. Check out April’s Morty’s Column here.
In his latest column, Morty sends off some interesting advice to a frantic Sherri. Sherri’s still dealing with her own Alexa issues. Morty, in his usual offbeat wisdom, also tries to pawn off one of his own technological nemesis while passing along support and suggestions to Sherri.
Read Morty’s advice to Sherri in the latest issue of Beneath the Cage Grate.
