This is Embarrassing

Hi. This is a bit embarrassing but I'm deserting my blog buggies two blog days (for me) in a row.  A crew of workers who've been cancelling and re-scheduling on me for months showed up this morning ready to rip out and re-build. Chaos reigns.

Happy Columbus Day to my friends here in the U.S.

Happy Thanksgiving to my friends in Canada.

Congratulations to grandson Cooper's football team on their upset win to move forward in the playoffs.




And a gentle thought for dear Eleanora, my mum-in-law, who left us two years ago today.
 

We miss you, Mama.


Hope everything is going well for everyone and I promise I'll be around to visit as soon as I get things here under control.  (Or sort of under control.)


Quickies for Today:  (No, I'm not getting kinky.)

Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason.

We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.

The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

Well, you don't dare postpone again!
Congratulations to your grandson.
No rush on blogging - my post today will be up all week.

Stephen Tremp said...

Great to see you back. I've been off for the better part of two months. Sometimes breaks are necessary.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

If you cancel now, you'll never see them again!

Angela Brown said...

Yeah, you had a pretty good reason to take a step away from the bloggy world. Hope they take of what should have been taken care of for a while now.

Congrats to the football team. YAY!

And we'll be here when you get back, LD :-)

LD Masterson said...

Alex - Thanks, I'll catch up with you on Wednesday.

LD Masterson said...

Stephen - Well, I seem to be in and out but I'm working on it. Glad to have you back, as well.

LD Masterson said...

Diane - I'm no fool. When they show up, I'm not about to let them leave.

LD Masterson said...

Angela - So far so good - noisy and messy but making progress.

Re. the football team - they were two touchdown underdogs but their defense stepped up and held the other team to just one touchdown with a missed point after. Final score: 7-6. Woo woo!

Love those quotes. Congrats to your grandson, and I'm happy to be finally getting some work done around my house today too. :)

LD Masterson said...

Linda J. - Thanks (on the quotes and my grandson). Good luck with the house work.

Arlee Bird said...

You're excused. Loved the quickies.

Thanks, Lee.

Hope chaos doesn't overstay its welcome at your house.

We'll be here when you get back.

Linda G. said...

Love both those quickies!

Carol Kilgore said...

No kinky? Darn!
Go Cooper!
Hope the rebuild went well :)

Liz Fichera said...

Good luck with your workers and reigning in chaos! And I love that diaper analogy. So true.

LD Masterson said...

Maria - Thanks. Hopefully, this will be a short visit.

LD Masterson said...

Linda G. - Now you've confused me. We're there three of them?

LD Masterson said...

Carol - No kinky here. My grandson reads this blog.

LD Masterson said...

Liz - Thanks. And the diaper analogy is so in keeping with the current political nonsense.
