Short(ish) Blogging Break


Hi everyone -- just to let you know, I'm taking a BLOGGING BREAK in August and September. Got places to go, people to see, things to do -- including a road trip to see my sister in Saskatchewan and my Mom in Manitoba.


But I've lined up a GUEST BLOGGER who promises to write two or three posts while I'm away. WHO could it be?


YES, THAT'S RIGHT! My dearly departed cat, Her Royal Highness, will be coming back again from The Great Beyond to pound out a few of her thoughts on the ol' laptop.


As long-time readers know, however, she's NOT the most reliable cat in the world, so we'll see if she ACTUALLY carries through on her promise.

In any event, I'll see you all again in October! CHEERIO and PIP PIP!

Jerry and I love Scrabble. Haven't played in a long time. He wouldn't know how to spell that word! AND... he behaves just like the cartoon cat.

Bob Slatten said...

Safe travels, and good times! Peace.

Enjoy your travel. Did your sister and mom move to those respective places so that whenever you visit them it gives it an alliterative quality that is quite delightful? See your sister in Saskatchewan and mom in Manitoba. Have fun~

lgsquirrel said...

We'll miss you. Without you, I may sink into depression and binge on ice cream. So hurry back, my health is in your hands. No pressure.

Mark said...


Enjoy your blogging break and have fun travelling around Canadia and meeting the family. I'd let my cats blog for me but they prefer to sleep on laptops rather than use them.

Anne Johnson said...

Bon voyage, enjoy your break!

Cheryl said...

Good for you! Everyone needs to shake up the routine a bit. While I look forward to reading HRH post's I won't judge her if she isn't up to it. Frankly, when I am dead, I would hope my readers would understand why I am not posting.

Have a fun break and I look forward to catching up when you return.

Debi said...

I will be watching for you on the 6:00 o'clock National News! hahahahaha! Spread Joy! Have Fun! I will miss you 😘 xoDebi

Enjoy your time away! Bring us with you, please? Please? Alright, well have fun!

Can't wait to see what (if) HRH posts.

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

I thought you died. I hadn't seen a comment from you for awhile. So next time let me know especially if you died. I hate to get side swiped by news like that. Hope you are enjoying your time away. Selfishly ignoring the GOLD that I post. I get it. Okay I don't get it.

Bob Johns said...

safe travels!

You're a trusting woman to leave your blog in those maniacal paws.
Be well, be safe, enjoy, and you will be missed.

Thanks for sstopping by today...I am beginning to be able to take short breaths now and know Mr. Sweet would want me to keep on blogging. He was always proud that I had something I enjoyed so much. Oh, my...he was such a sweetheart and my heart is so broken, missing him so.
Take a good break...see ya soon
