Well, hello everybody.
Wanna' hear a gazillion silly human reasons why we have been out of touch for over a month??? Sick compooter? Lots of catch-up work? "The Days of Awe?" No imagination? Travel to Tampa Bay for a presentation? Tummy bug?
But what about all those evenings when we saw She Who Controls the Keyboard reading mysteries about Hercules Poirot, allegedly to understand the wheelies better??? And all the hours she spent reading pawlitical blogs??? Or evenings listening to MSNBC???
Wanna' know how many times we pleaded with She Who Controls Not Just the Keyboard, but Our Lives to let us have at it if she wasn't going to? Every single dog-gone day! Over and over and over! And then she had the nerve to write about what the DWB means to her!!! Chutzpah, if you ask us.
Wanna' know how much we missed all our pals??? There are no words big enough to express it!
And wanna' know the final insult? She Who Lives with our Dogdad now says the camera got broken when they were at a college football game last weekend to enjoy their son's marching band so we ain't got no pikturs until they get it fixed!!! And who knows how long that will take.
The only positive thing we can report is that we did espy She Who Said We Maybe Could Go to Saint Louis with Them for Christmas making lots of telephone calls to find pet friendly accommodations on the way.
Sigh. Humans. Gotta' love 'em anyway, anyhow!!
Before we sign off, we do want to send our condolences to our pal, Booker's H-Mom and Dad for the sad decision they had to make. They live not too far from us and we had always intended to go visit -- but procrastination got the better of us, and now Booker is at the Rainbow Bridge and we never got to meet that unique gentleman coonhound.
