as per usual i'm behaving like a half a*sed procrastinator and i'm starting blogs...and not finishing i have quite a few saved as drafts Image there's the "Don't Make Me Throw a possum in Your Face" one...where i intend to ask Pete to put some possum kids up on Craigs list after i repeat another faintly veiled nature humor piece


forgive me for the use of the word PIECE...u'll noticed i will use that term often as it's an artsy fartsy word i picked up when i was a poet

then there's "How Come Ur So Smart at 50"...about a visit with my oldest son David who i flew down for his birthday this weekend

"Refrigerator Note"...about the random love note i put here and there around the house for Bobby..the frig..mirrors in the bathroom...taped to the steering wheel of the car...and under the dogs collar so he finds them when the dog jumps up on his chair or the bed


hey...maybe this is all i need to say about any of them

but i gotta put the pictures up!!!

Nan, each of those drafts sound interesting. I have a number of drafts saved as well. Sometimes they start out strong and peter out, dead end. Sometimes I need to do more research before posting them. Sometimes I write something and decide to hold on to it for the moment.

On the other hand sometimes I start to write something spur of the moment and that ends up finished and posted within the space of minutes! Example would be the Bonus Blogs.

As a writer, you just never know what's going to end up as a finished product! :) Good luck with each of these, I always enjoy reading your essays! xxx
