Beneath the Cage Grate: Morty’s Thanksgiving Dinner Debacle

MortyWhat do you get when you put Alexa and Morty in the kitchen for Thanksgiving Dinner preparation?  You get fire and one lousy, burnt drumstick that’s what!

Head on over to the November edition of Beneath the Cage Grate for some laughs, and a few timely tips on how NOT to cook your Thanksgiving turkey… or other fowl!

Beneath the Cage Grate: Never Trick or Treat with Bots!

IMG_20190918_132308In 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

Beneath the Cage Grate: The Tomato Scandal

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.  IMG_20190901_133446

The plan, whilst well thought out and brilliant, hits a few (predictable?) snags, with Morty left to once again ponder his relationship with technology… and tomatoes.

Don’t miss Morty’s latest comedic take on life with Alexa and sidekick Roomba.  Head on over to Morty’s page now for some Sunday afternoon chuckles!

YES MORTY, PULL THAT WEED! Beneath the Cage Grate

IMG_20190701_121656It’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!

Bird Watching with Alexa: Beneath the Cage Grate

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

IMG_20190603_094118What 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!

Alexa, por quoi?

IMG_20190331_154100Do 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.

Beneath the Cage Grate: Vroom Vroom Roomba

img_20190104_115009Twas the day after Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring because of that runaway Roomba Alexa gave mother for Christmas!  Honestly, I could just spit seeds!  Just when you thought it was safe to take a stroll around the apartment, that ditzy Alexa strikes again!

Morty’s challenges with Alexa continue.  Visit Morty’s Column to read his hilarious take on Alexa’s gift for mum.
