Off-air message and a monkey


Going off-air due to illness in the family and I'm not sure when I'll be back to posting. Please check back or, if you desire, feel free to email me at bookfoolery at yahoo dot com - I will attempt to at least check that email every 4-5 days (but don't hold your breath, please, as purple is not a becoming skin color). Also, while I've got you . . . just wanted to let you know that the nifty "email follow-up comments to" feature that Blogger has just recently added does not work for me, due to the fact that it's based on one's Google ID and my Google ID is my old email address, which is no longer functional. I'll try to change that when I'm back online, but it may be weeks - I just can't say. I leave you with a kitschy beaded monkey holding an oversized Italian glass necklace that doesn't work on a short person and ended up a monkey toy hanging from a curtain rod (Whew! How's that for a run-on sentence?) - lucky you!

    Thanks so much. I'll try to pile up some wahooey ideas and do a big post when we get past all this. I kind of rely on those wahoos, myself. :)

  24. Oh, no! I'm so sorry about the illness, Nancy. I dropped by to find out why your word count had stopped moving upward. Sorry this happened in November. I'm sending all the good vibes possible to you, along with prayers. And while you are doing what you need to do, don't forget to take care of yourself, dear heart!

  25. Bonnie,

    Thanks. Yeah, it kind of sucks that I had to be yanked away in November. I'm going to hack away at my story whenever I can, but I'm not banking on a lot of writing time and I'm kind of assuming this will be my last day of internet access. I feel a little adrift, already. Prayers are appreciated. Have fun with your Nano! :)

    Wow, that's a lot of names. LOL Thank you very much, all of you. I've missed being in contact with everyone. I'm at a Burger King, of all places, taking advantage of their free internet. It took days to figure out where I could get a signal. I'll post an update, later on. I appreciate you all! The time off is not such a bad thing; I just feel a little lonely. :)

    Hugs all around and sorry for the mass reply!!!!

  44. All,

    I just want you to know how much I appreciate you guys!!! Thanks so much for thinking of me - I miss all of you!!!

    Gentle Reader,

    Thank you. It looks like a long road ahead of us - I'll be away from home for at least a couple more weeks. I'm really missing the blogging world!!

    Bybee,

    Thank you. That's such a great way to look at it: my "blogging family". I love it!

    Joemamma,

    Thank you! I appreciate the thoughts and prayers. We're hanging in there. I'm caring for my mother and she's a very sick lady. It'll probably be at least a couple of weeks before I can post.

  46. Hi Tristi!

    Things are fine, here - improving, daily. I'll head home in about 10 days. Sister's bringing Thanksgiving dinner, thank the Lord. I'm so sick of cooking. I hate cooking. :)

    Thanks for asking!!!

  47. Wishing you the very best this Thanksgiving! :)

  49. Hi Lotus!

    I guess I'm a working hiatus, here. LOL I've had to cook three times a day. Ask me if I ever thought I'd survive, but yes . . . we're actually doing very well. I'm going to attempt to post an update, since I have a little time. It's good to "see" you!!!
