No blog entry today…, April Fools!!! :-D

Greetings, readers. I just couldn’t resist that title. I used to love April Fools day until a school chum played a prank in one of our classes. He put glue on a few chairs. I wasn’t one of the poor unfortunate people whose pants were ruined, but I still thought it was a terrible joke to play.

Being picked on in school a bit, I was never one to pull pranks on others. I treated kids like I wanted to be treated. Did it work? For the most part it did. My mom got me one time. She came into my bedroom, just before the alarm went off, and told me that there wasn’t any school that day. She let me jump for joy for a good 30 seconds before giving me the smile and yelling, “Gotcha! April Fools.” Needless to say, I wasn’t amused.

Well, Rebecca is still under the weather, but she’ll be back on Wednesday. I’m not sure what our topic will be, but I’m certain we’ll come up with something interesting. Until then, have a great weekend, take care & as always, happy reading.



Short blog today due to illness and time constraints

Greetings, readers. Joe here typing this entry. Rebecca is under the weather and won’t be coming in to work today. I am also struggling with a personal issue which took place at my apartment building yesterday. So, the entry slotted for today will be put up either tomorrow or Friday.

Until then, hang in there, have a good day and happy reading.

Ps – if you have loved ones who live alone, check on them often; especially in the hot weather.


Inspection time is around the corner

Greetings, readers. Yes, my world was thrown into a junior blind panic today as the notice of inspection was handed out. This does happen every year, but I always go into a tizzy. I’m a naturally messy homemaker, and my body won’t allow long cleaning sessions at one time. I am writing and editing today without Rebecca. She’s been under the weather the last two days. I’m sure she’ll be back next Wednesday, and it will be good to have her. My editing skills are not quite up to hers. After my work day today, room cleaning begins. I am tired of living like a slob; a real life Oscar Madison. All I have to do is put my mind to it, and once the place is clean, I can keep it that way. My dear friend, Uncle Cy Greco, once said, “A place for everything and everything in its place.” Right now I could say, “A typhoon hit my apartment and nothing is in its place.” Well, I’ll conclude this short blog entry today by asking you all to throw good thoughts Rebecca’s way to feel better and for my back to allow me to clean up my place without spasms. Until next week, take care, have a great weekend and happy reading.

Update: I passed the inspection!
