So, am I dead yet?

I'm not dead yet.

Nope. I’m not dead yet.

I haven’t posted anything in over a month…not even a card or a letter.

In blog time, that’s like a decade.

So, some of you might be wondering if I’m dead … or worse.

I might have decided blogging was passé and taken up this new-fangled way of communication. You should try it. People don't sound like their words at at all.

Did you worry that I gave up blogging? Well, I almost did! I discovered this new-fangled mode of communication. You should try it. People don’t sound like their words at all. It’s super duper!

Nah. Not dead. Still floating in the blogosphere.

But that virus that infected my lungs was a stalker virus. I think it still might be lurking somewhere.

If you invested your money in Puffs (with lotion), your profits will be nothing to sneeze at in the first quarter of 2016.

But it hasn’t all been fun and games in bed over the last month.

I’ve been busy keeping up with all the news that’s weird and wonderful in Portlandia.

Let’s see what’s been happening while you’ve been preoccupied with national politics.

Seriously? Some men have major ego (and other) issues. Oh, the snake was not a python. Well, he still has major issues.

I know there is a big article here, but could someone please explain to me in simple terms how ANYONE could put a collar on a wild wolf by mistake? Seems like a lot of trouble to go to when you weren't specifically instructed to do so.

Are they trying to lose federal and state funding?

Okay. Either this is one well-funded little league or this woman ruined her life for peanuts. And I mean that literally.

Okay. Either this is the Trump Little League (the best, smartest, richest, winningest, biggest Little League EVER) so it was worth the risk or this woman ruined her life for peanuts. And I mean that literally.

Have you ever seen happier worshipers? I'm beginning to see the attraction to organized religion around here.

Have you ever seen happier, more relaxed (a.k.a. disheveled) worshipers? I’m beginning to see the attraction of organized religion around here.

Hey, don’t get mad at me. I’m just letting you know what happened to the jolly old gent who should apparently limit his driving to reindeer-powered sleighs in the air after children (and police) are asleep.

Reading all that news has kept me busy. Plus life around here is filled with distractions like, um, one 22-pound white perpetual source of laughs and love.

And this little munchkin is keeping me busy, too.

Yup, this little munchkin is keeping me busy. We’re now in obedience class. I’m progressing quite well. Fozzie is, too.

How about you? Any zany news from your fork in the road? I’d love to hear from you!

  1. I’m so happy he does. He is really, really cute. Also, he’s very photographable.
    Is that a word? I made it up. LOL

  2. Fozzie is the best! He makes me laugh every day. 🙂

  3. I wondered how I had missed this post then realized I was on a cruise with no internet. Once I arrived home, I deleted every notification. Who could catch uo on 2400 e mails. DELETE … gone. 😳
    I’m pleased you still kicking. Fozzie is a cutie.
    Toodles … Izzy 😎

  4. Oh, good! So am I! So is Fozzie!

  5. I’m smiling.

  6. Oh, I’m so sorry I never answered this message. Shame on me! I just stopped checking my blog site. 😦

  7. Took a long time to recover and then life got in the way…again. Oh well. I’m back for now!

  8. I hope you’re OK, Lorna. And love Fozzie. Thanks for the laughs!

  9. Yesterday when I was walking the dogs I saw one that looked like yours and started to worry about you. Are you okay?

  10. Thanks, Peter!

  11. How did I miss this. I was thinking this afternoon that I should write to you again and I thought I should just check your Blog and, blow me down, here’s a post from you. I do hope you get better soon but you are far from forgotten I can assure you 🙂

  12. Sure hope you’re on the mend now. Sorry you were sick, but looks like your mind kept busy.

  13. Oh my … and I was thinking a dizzy blonde could figure it out. 😉

  14. Thanks Lorna. Slow, long, but recovering. 🙂

  15. I fear that he will not soon be forgotten.

  16. Can you imagine putting a snake in your pants? I mean, seriously? 😐

  17. Oh, so sorry to hear you have it. I know your pain and it does not want to let go once it has a hold of you. Take care of yourself!

  18. Yup, bizarre to the MAX!

  19. Foz is SO easy to love! ❤

  20. That boy is cribbing from MY notes. He would be lost (and I do mean that quite literally) without me! But I would be kind of lost without him, too–so we’re even!

  21. Say what? You don’t say! Say goodbye, Senator Rubio. I never thought George Bush would seem like a moderate Republican. I’m speechless.

  22. It’s a dastardly slow process. Must be I’m getting old!

  23. Sweeping sawdust?

  24. Cute little furry bundle! Glad to hear you’re still alive. I’ve been sweeping sawdust again. 🙂

  25. I’m so glad you’re not dead! Thanks for bringing us all up to speed with the news. Now get better!

  26. Good to see you back in the saddle. My news is typical stuff – volunteering, handbells, wine, ballroom dancing, and whatever else comes along.

    Zany news is always easy to find … especially in this political season … I heard Sen Rubio say this – “I didn’t say what he was saying as I said it one time.” … I’m relying on you to translate for me.

  27. Glad to hear your doing well in obedience class. Does Fozzy let you crib from his class notes? 😉

  28. So good to see you and hope you’re on the mend. Always enjoy you breaking news! Lovin’ Fozzie

  29. Hi I was glad to see this pop up! but take it easy still and cuddle up with your lovely doggie. Your local news sound like a microcosm of what’s happening in your country politics – bizarre!

  30. I think I caught your respiratory virus. Killer flu knocking down a lot of people. I hope you’re on the mend. 🙂

  31. Is that a snake in there, or are you just happy to see me? (I had to do it – as soon as I saw that article – sorrrreeeee). :-0
    Take care. Heal! Stay here and blog when you have chance.

  32. Yes crazy. And agree not funny.

  33. Thanks, Laurie. I am feeling better and I hope I have built up an immunity to whatever is still circulating out there!

  34. I’m pretty much there…I think. Thanks, Harry! 🙂

  35. The national political farce is a kind of crazy even I can’t find funny. 😐

  36. Except for a very short story being published in the paper, I’ve managed to stay out of that paper. I’ll do my best to maintain that record! 😉

  37. I wonder if there is enough of that in the country for us all to forget about him!

  38. Oh, I heard lots of words about Trump. I just tried to sing happy songs with my raspy voice. Nothing worked but some really potent cough syrup… 😐

  39. Too funny! Let’s hope that zany people never go away! 🙂

  40. Finding stories like these is the only reason I subscribe to the newspaper! 😉

  41. I know what you mean! Being a journalist around here is never boring!

  42. Good to see you Lorna! I can’t get past the trouser snake (mentally, not physically…or spiritually).

  43. Make sure you get better, your blogging friends are always thinkng about you. You know Lorna I haven’t read a paper in years…[see your humourr is still there at the forefront}.. missing out by the look of it. 😉

  44. So relieved to hear that you’re not dead, Lorna! That is some nasty virus that gotta hold of you. I love Fozzie’s sweet face…what a darling!

    I just shared a story to my Facebook page about a cop who pulled a woman over who had a fifteen foot tree stuck in the grille of her car. Here’s the link so you can see it for yourself: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/cops-stop-car-with-tree-wedged-in-grille-charge-driver-photos-go-viral/ar-BBqsgbm?ocid=sf

    Thank goodness for all the cray-cray people out there who bring mirth and laughter to our lives!

  45. Being sick really sucks, Lorna. But I gotta say, I’d rather read the weird news you’ve been reading than what I’ve been reading. You didn’t hear a word about Trump!

  46. One look into those devilish eyes and I can tell Fozzie is a full-time job. But what a cutie!

    By the way, you are never allowed to get sick again. And make sure you stay out of the local paper yourself!

  47. I think your zany corner covered it for the western U.S. As for the rest of the U.S. the political happenings are a good match for your neck of the woods. Luv ya! ❤

  48. Blogging can wait just get well.

  49. Hello, Lorna! Actually the other day you came to mind. I noticed you hadn’t been blogging. Sure hope you feel better quickly! The articles were interesting. Take care!

Silence can be just what the doctor ordered. You know I'm a doctor, right?
