Looking forward to your next one ~ ~ ~ I really need a good laugh!
“There you are, Peter.” [There’s a prize awaiting you for knowing this oblique reference]. Yes, and welcome back. *about time* she mumbled.
I know it. But we won’t tell him.
Peter… Hm. Peter Pan? Peter Rabbit? Peter, Paul, and Mary? I give up. Peter who from where?
I deserve your grumbly mumbles.
I was pulled away from the blog due to urgent personal issues. When the urgent personal issues became a little less urgent, I was kept away from the blog due to professional commitments. Then, after the professional commitments were all committed, I was kept away from the blog due to laziness. And, well, that 1,000-page biography of U.S. Grant wasn’t gonna read itself!
You and your kiddo need to rewatch Hook. Wait for it, there is a wonderful moment when the Lost Boys recognize the Pan in the adult Peter. So, the reference is alluding to what I figured to be adult responsibilities. I could have done Jack Nicholson’s “I’m back” as a salute…just saying, it’s scary how long you’ve been away.
My boy’s never seen Hook and I’m not too interested in re-seeing it, I’m afraid. As far as seafaring tales are concerned, we’re more of a Master and Commander family.
Ah–I believe the Horatio Hornblower series is starboard to your horizon.
HH can be found in my DVD collection AND in my bookcase.
Yeah!!!! It’s hard not to forgive with such an adorable drawing.
I get myself out of many a scape with an adorable drawing.
And, again, happy wedding to ya!
Okay, I’m glad to see you but since it has been a while you may need to show some consistency for me to trust again. I’m calling my therapist now for support.
I am both saddened and flattered to learn that my bloggy absence sent people into therapy.
Well, I’m back now. So you’re cured!
Oh good! Maybe I can even stop taking my medication.
I was over our break up…..doing well….and now you come back?
*back of hand to forehead!* omg! *heads back to therapy…..*
I’m like a bad penny.
I was thinking more like cold….or sinus….
Tis true; people do get sick of me.
More like sick because we can’t laugh from reading you. Do you have guilt now?
Guilt is reserved for my Catholic relatives. Episcopalians are guilt free.
But what about us Methodists??
Not my problem. Choose your own guilt level.
Or the Winter of 2018.
It just won’t leave!!
Not that I want you to leave, but since we were using references of things that just keep coming back…
Will look forward to being connected again! Hope your writing is going well for your upcoming books.
I look forward to revisiting your blog, Patricia! And, yep, the writing has made me busier than I have ever been.
*Knocks wood, kisses horseshoe, rubs rabbit foot (on a living rabbit, of course)*
You’re back! LOL!!
Oh yeah.. .blogging… um. Glad you’re back, Mike. 😀
It’s easy to fall out of the habit when life get’s a bit too harried. But I’m not gonna fall off the wagon anytime soon. I promise!
Glad you are back! I had started missing your blogs. I know I’m not better myself (have not posted anything lately), but I thought maybe you got famous overnight and forgot all about us! ;o)
I will never forget my bloggy pals! Never!
Well thank goodness for that! We’ve been pining! 🙂
Oh, you gave me a real chuckle with this one…seems we’ve got the same illness…different reasons but same result. If you post again, I will! 😀
I got a new post ready for next Monday. And the Monday after that. And the Monday after that, too!
I am committed to blogging from this point forward! WOO!
Well, I’ve been dreaming about my next post so I’d better start getting it out of my naps and onto the blog! Monday? …okay…Monday it is!
You’re back! I’ve been having similar blog absence troubles (for different reasons of course), and it’s been crazy. Glad you’ve come home! 😉
Erik, my buddy! So good to hear from ya. I won’t be a stranger on your blog anymore! I am all in on the blog thing.
Very good — I’m in!
Yay! Sandee! Nice to see ya again, my kinda creepy Halloweeny, death metal-y friend!
I’ve missed you!! 😀
And I you, my friend!
Your picture and caption made me laugh.
Because I spend most of my days now, with that “Oh crap, I forgot something,” look on my face.
So little time, so many things to do.
That’s pretty much been my fallback expression for the past five months.
Hmmm. Actions speak louder than words, as they say. One of those “theys” was my mother….Not that I’m feeling petulant, or anything…..
I understand that I need to earn your trust, Jil.
Or you can just look at the jillions of doodles I’ve drawn for you over the years and settle down. Sheesh!
There’s no resting on laurels in the kidlit world.
You are a tough cookie, Jilanne.
PROMISE? Personally and professionally, I’ve missed your blogging presence. xo
I do promise! Really and truly!
It’s okay, buddy! No apologies required! (But I’m glad you’re back.)
I’m glad to be back! And I’m especially glad that you’re reading my stuff, Madame!
That’s a fat book you’re reading!
Ok, so I didn’t miss THAT many! YAH! 😉
