En derangement...

When our mom lived in Paris a hundred years ago, she always laughed when she saw a sign affixed to an out-of-order telephone that said: En derangement.



Now that she's translated the French for us, we can laugh too as we think how many other ways we'd like to use those words to explain our mom's current condition. Out of order? Yes. Way too busy? Yes. Thoroughly deranged? Absolutely.

We think she'll be back in order before too long. Still busy, but perhaps less so. But that deranged? No hope for a cure.

As we face the last month of hurricane season here in what has been a comparatively peaceful time, we feel awful for those elsewhere who seem to have gotten the brunt of winds and rain and even worse. No predicting anything anymore!!! Not even for this so far happily unemployed weather dog.

Barkies! Not to worry about deranged hoomans. Lots of walks and fresh air might be good! Or pour her a nice glass of Virgnia whine.

Deranged for sure. Most of them are. Sigh. I hope that none of those big wind storms come to your house. Just hang in there!

Happy Collieween. We like you being under-employed during herricane season Jake. We wish Tomas would just suddenly fizzle away.

We heard a rumor has it you read the curl of JH's wirey hair to tell what direction the herricanes will go.

Two great photos! My old wire boy, Carson had one ear up and the other down-ya sure do look like him in that picture:-)

Thanks so much for kindly remembering those who have been hard hit this hurricane season:-)

We're pretty sure our ape has the En Derangement.

We will keep our paws crossed that the ocean will stay calm for the rest of the season. May the only hurricanes you see be the kind you drink in New Orleans.

Long time. No hear from you. Hope everything's okay and you're not mad at us, or somethin'!

Bear with this comment. We're trying to get around to everyone ...

OK. We're gonna admit. Straightaway. No bones about it. We're taking the easy peasy way out. We want to get around to EVERYONE on our blog roll to remind you about the Second Annual Worldwide Moment coming up on Sunday 14 Nov 10. Were you there last year? Do you remember? Or are you new to it this year? Wondering what that Countdown Clock is on blogs that you visit? Whatever. We want you and everyone you know to have a chance to participate in the Silent Minute, the Candle Lighting and the Shout Out! Come visit. We've got a new banner for you, HTML for an (accurate, now that the word UNTIL is in red) Countdown Clock and a link to figure out what time 11:00 PM GMT is in your neck of the woods.

So. You're getting this 'cause we've been friends in the blogging world and we want you to know.

Please forgive the "stock" comment, but we told Moma we've never done this before and we'll not do it again (at least until next year.)

Loads of wirey love and lots of encouragment to join in (and to pass the word)
Jake and Fergi (and OurMoma and OurCollegeGirl)
