Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Wherein Ghosts, Excuses, and College Mascots Collide


So many of you have contacted me to see if I'm "OK" since I haven't been blogging much lately. OH MY GOODNESS!!! How "loved" you have made me feel.

Technically I am "OK" - - - well, as OK as is possible, for someone as anormal as myself, to be.

Mostly I've just gotten busy with two part time jobs - - - one paid here, and the other compensated in heaven - - - and that "busyness" has sapped my creative juices.

I don't plan to tear down the old blog, or anything RASH like that - - - I'm sure I'll get my little puny act together at SOME POINT and return to "regale" you all with my witty banter.

As if.

Now for a "ghost of a smile" to cross your face, because a "ghost" is all I've got to give - - -

The other day I jokingly asked my nail tech, who does fabulous free hand designs on my ring finger nails, if he could give me a Bucky.

"What's a Bucky????" asks he.

So, of COURSE I went out to the car (yes Sister Pam, it WAS in the car and NOT covered by a blanket either) and brought in my new Badger Purse to show him who Bucky is.

He took a quick look at Bucky and said,

"Oh - - - he looks like a skunk trying to be tough."

Somehow I don't think super nail-tech guy is a college football fan.

Another friend recently asked me if I realized our Bucky looked a LOT like the NC State BADGER. She said they had the same shirt and stance.

The stance I'll give her.

The fact that the NC State mascot is a WOLF and wearing a SOLID red shirt - - - - not so much.

Ok, so the "claws" and clenched fists are also dead ringers.

It's all good - - - what NC State decided to "throw away" this season - - - namely their FORMER quarterback, Russell Wilson, we GLADLY snapped right up.

Now we're winning - - - and they aren't.

So how did THAT work out for them?????

And now, I have to go get ready to go to the nursing home to conduct a worship service and since not even I can make much of a devotional out of college football mascots I'd better get my act together - - -

Oh But Wait!!! I think I CAN use college mascots in my devotional - - - I'll let you know later how it works out.

Oh, boy.....could the nail tech free hand that??? I should have known you were busy with football!!!! Not my favorite t.v. thing.

K, Glad you are back with your readers. Consider putting your WI Badgers in your masthead graphic. They are on a roll this year and may be kings of the division or conference in the end this season. Did I just say that?

A devotional inspired by college mascots, I am a'waitin on this one, I know it is going to be a good read . No pressure though....

Sandy said...

YES, very stupid move on NC State's part, for sure....But, since I am an ex-Wisconsinite, I am glad that Russell is in good hands in Madtown...And your post is certainly great...How could I have missed the differences? Maybe it was the red, the stance, and the clenched fists...But the face and he ears are definitely different..
This has been least I know what you are talking about..HEHEHEHE
Love from me in NC

A real life, eh? (Not that you didn't have one before.) I'm blogging less now, not that anyone notices.


And, yes, Wisconsin won.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I figured work was keeping you busy! Glad to see a post again! hugs, Linda

Like everyone else, I've missed your posts but I totally understand. I've been super busy and tired. By the time I comment on people's blogs I'm too tired to write a blog. I think it's wonderful that you tried to get bucky on your nails. How bout a W can he at least give you that? ha ha.

j said...

Yay you! Glad you shared some blog thoughts. I have to say though... skunks ARE tough. I won't mess with them.

Have a great week you busy lady!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

With your two jobs and football season upon you I can understand being overwhelmed with being too busy to blog. Enjoy!

I didn't realize how similar the two mascots were until I married a Badger! They do look a lot alike but Bucky is way cuter.
