No picture with this post - - - will you read or will you turn away??? Aw, come on - - - give the words a CHANCE.
Just a few things I want to spout about tonight.
First of all: I have missed blogging this week. I have missed all of you. School started, and it saps my time and my energy, and SOMETIMES even my sense of humor. BUT - - - I shall prevail, so keep CHECKING in on me.
Second: About the DUST on that sewing machine pedal in my TVTT post. I did SERIOUSLY consider dusting and reshooting the picture. Then I thought, "Where's the reality in THAT!?!" 'Cause people, there IS some SERIOUS DUST in my life. SERIOUS. Besides, THAT particular dust has been collecting on that pedal (it's hidden in the cabinet where I never even THOUGHT to dust it) for the entire 34+ years of my marriage. By now it has EARNED the RIGHT to peace and quiet. Maybe next week I'll show you the cobwebs we have around here - - - - but then again, maybe not!
Third: Brunhilda and Borris Bearsaltandpepper. Yes, they are hibernating quite happily back on the kitchen table where they shall STAY until I feel brave enough to pull them out of retirement for another series of guest posts. The blogland reaction to them has been a mixed bag of nuts to say the least. Some people actually, you know, READ the posts and "got" them and loved them. Others just saw the little bears and said to themselves, (and then LATER out loud TO ME) "stupid." Well, the B & B posts were a GROUP project on vacation - - - all 4 of us got into the act.The other three gave me ideas for pictures and helped me stage them. I poured my creative juices into making the posts and writing the stories. We just had a ball doing it. I KNOW that should be ENOUGH - - - but I just gotta tell ya, the naysayers hurt my bloggy feelings to their very quick. It may be a LONG TIME before I brave airing B&B creativity on the world again. (As you can see, I broke down and posted one tiny picture after all.)
Fourth: I just opened my e-mail to find a message from a "little girl" I used to baby-sit for 37+ years ago!!! I didn't recognize the e-mail and NEARLY deleted it as spam without even opening it!!! Oh how GLAD I am that a little voice in my head said, "STOP - - - don't delete that without seeing what it is!!" Lori - - - if you find your way to this blog WELCOME and it was soooooooo fun to hear from you today.
LAST: The lone world traveler will be back home in Indiana tomorrow. Fisherhubby and I will be waiting for him at the airport. I'm pretty sure he will never be the same again.
Thanks for READING!! Hugs and Kisses to you ALL.
