Happy New Year

It was my hope to return to my blog and my blog friends but something has happened to me.  Not only has blogging been abandoned, there is rarely interest in Facebook.  My art materials have also been discarded and no poetry has been forthcoming.  To top it all off I have been losing things.  

My TV remote disappeared and I searched for hours. Would you believe it was found accidentally  when I reached into a bag of chips.  Instead of pulling out a chip, I grabbed the remote. It was almost like finding a prize in Cracker-Jacks.

How did the TV remote end up in the chip sack?  Don't tell my children.  They already think I am ready for a nursing home.

Hopefully the right side of my brain will start working again soon.

Happy New Year to All!

It was my intention to visit my sister and brother-in-law today but things happen.  First it turned very cold and I could not brave the temperatures.

Second my young dog awakened me at 2AM. Frankie Doodle does not bark in the night, she whispers.  She was whispering at 2AM and I was hoping she would go back to sleep but she kept it up.  Slim was ignoring her but the light noise was driving me crazy. I got up to open the door and let Frankie out but I couldn't find her.  

Frankie was stuck under my bed.  I can only guess that when people on the lake set off fireworks at midnight to welcome the New Year it frightened her and she dived under without thinking.  She has gotten so big she could not get out.  I encouraged her and she finally made it out from under but then she wanted to play.  

Needless to say I am due a nap and will stay home and hope Frankie keeps quiet.

It looks like she is ready for a nap too.
