MISSING - Last Seen Entering Dryer

MISSING-Last Seen Entering Dryer 12/12/12

A PETTY THIEVES’ TALE

photo 2Sir Francis Bacon once said, “Opportunity makes a thief.” Indeed, it does, for what do you think happens when you leave a box full of donuts untended in a room with two Labrador Retrievers? Now, when I say a box full, I mean a heap, a complete dozen. I’m talkin’ three Bavarian Kremes, two chocolate glazed, four jelly, an apple crumb and two powdered.

If you’re thinking the obvious or a couple of bloated, sick (w)itches with a ‘B’ or even  puddled boat loads of barf on the living room rug well, no, not this time. Although, having read some of our pooches’ previous antics, I can understand why you’d say that. Continue reading

I invite you to read my submission for Susanna Leonard Hill’s  March Madness Writing Contest

The Challenge: Write a children’s story, in poetry or prose, maximum 400 words, that is a fractured fairy tale. Feel free to add a theme of spring, or mix in one of the spring holidays if you like…

HECK HATH NO FURY LIKE MS. MUFFET SCORNED

This is a fable of lies and deceit—
Not for the faint-hearted, or stomachs that’re weak.
The tale, its author, the unpopular Father Gander,
Was written from his viewpoint with unflinching candor. Continue reading

Dr. Jane, Angaangaq, Atsaarsuaq Hansiina, Mr. Man aka Ron Weidner and Yours Truly

A few years ago I had the great pleasure of meeting Dr. Jane Goodall. Over drinks one night, she told a heartfelt story about how a young boy once asked her, “Where do you think people go when they die?” The child had lost his mother at a young age and missed her terribly. Dr. Jane shared her belief that our dearly departed are always nearby and watching over us. “You mean, like in that chair over there?” he asked, pointing across the hotel lobby at an empty desk. “Or up there, on the balcony?”

TAKING A BLOG-A-CATION

photo.jpgUh, I mean a vacation from blogging. Not for long. Only until the ironing’s done.

Before I go though, I have a question for you:

Have you noticed all the new blog-o-cabulary being used out there in Blogland lately?

Personally, I kind of like it. For one thing, using blogisms keeps my spell check on his toes …………….. See? Continue reading
