Some Weeks You Write A Blog Post…

…and some weeks you turn your alto saxophone-playing son into The Fifth Beatle.

This was a Fifth Beatle week. I regret nothing.

Yes, yes, I know I have been very absent from this blog lately. And I’m sorry.

I have reasons, though! I’ve been teaching writing classes. (Fun!) I’ve also been making quixotic attempts to meet deadlines for a new MG series. (Less fun!)

And, well, I wanna go sleepy all the tiiiime.

BUT! A new Debatables is coming.

And I promise more blog post-y shenanigans in two shakes of a lamb’s tail. (Or, at most, four shakes. Or maybe five. Five lamb tail shakes, tops!)

See you again soon!

  1. “Quixotic.” Well! Someone’s is using his thesaurus. Now I’m going to spend the week trying to work that into a sentence.

      1. How kind you are! I’ve been confronted with a surprise conflict suddenly, and have been asking myself if I’m in the right or am I the jerk!

  2. I have grown a complex. It is worrying me. I need at least a weekly dose from Scamper’s Papa. Can we do that at least???? Please………………z.z.zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  3. The only (two) reasons that I’m letting you get away with your post tardiness is that (1) you shared a delightful doodle here and (two) you used the word “Beatle.” Oh, and of course your Fifth Beatle is musically gifted, for sure.

  4. oh, but, Mike—your busy with SUCH good stuff! And…it’s summer! By the way, love your “St. Pepper/Yellow Submarine” art ๐Ÿ˜€ By the way, my son played the sax in school too ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. I loved summer when I was young and we had a pool or I was able to go to the beach. Now I can do without it and am very grateful for AC (just wish they’d figure out how NOT to damage the planet with it ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ). And the autumn was ALways my favorite season. I used to watch the leaves turn from August! I knew how to time my long drives for when it was peak, then maybe about 12+ years ago, several years in a row, we no longer had peaks here. I eventually stopped even paying attention because I was tired of the disappointment and wasted time. Now I’m grateful when I catch little spots that resemble the breathtaking peaks we used to have :/ And it seems winter has become my favorite season simply because there are no landscapers making noise and stirring things up. I’m able to go outside and not get zapped as often! Life was simpler for me decades ago lol

      2. yep…large area to shovel here so if it’s powdery OR under an inch when not, it’s fine ๐Ÿ™‚ Agreed about winter due to allergies, including the landscaping fumes! And snow helps keep things more at bay ๐Ÿ™‚
