Special note: I’ve had a Big Blog Blow-Up this holiday. All my plug-ins and comments etc are in total disarray. I bought ‘Blogging For Dummies’ and am reading as fast as I can. With my meager knowledge and Summer’s help I plan to have my next (real) blog up and to my subscribers by Jan 11th 2012.
I will also list the winner of a phone session with me, pulled randomly from the comments that some of you were able to get to me last month.
Thank you for your patience.
In the meantime….to hold you over, here’s just a little something that happened in my life over the holidays.
Jim and the Cat Butter
My brother Jim calls at eight p.m. and says he’s coming to see me. He arrives exhausted and with a bag of food from his restaurant tucked under his arm.
He tells me he hasn’t slept for 24 hours.
“Last night I had to paint the door red and it wouldn’t dry so I couldn’t shut it so I had to stay up all night and wait for it. I just couldn’t walk off and let the burglars in my place.”
He’s messing around in the kitchen, getting stuff from my refrigerator for his sandwich.
I’m in my pajamas on the couch, paying attention to the TV.
Jim brings his meal into the living room and settles into a big chair. He eats and finishes his sandwich.
I get up to get a glass of water. On the kitchen counter, I see the butter tub. The lid is off and the tub is empty. Ummmm? (more…)
