Well, we were away for a couple of days with one of Himself's relatives. We had a nice Thanksgiving. I didn't even want to kill anyone! Joe discovered mince pie, which is now his new favorite thing in the world. That kid is developing quite a sophisticated palette. He was going through dinner on Turkey day asking about the ingredients, herbs and seasonings. I think he has the making of a great cook.
I returned home to decent internet access to find a bunch of e-mails and comments to which I really want to respond. Unfortunately, my hands are flaring pretty bad right now and I cannot type for long, so I am writing this quick update before I go to spend an unproductive morning sathering Voltaren on my hands and wimpering.
I want to acknowledge and thank the "new" people who have commented recently. I do appreciate your taking the time to read and especially to comment.
I have heard from a few people via e-mail that they cannot post comments here at the moment. I think it has to do with having a Typepad account vs none. I was having trouble commenting on my own blog. I had to sign out of Typepad and put in the requested information manually. That worked for me. I don't think this is true of all Typepad blogs. However, I -to my now chagrin- signed up to be a beta tester. Therefore this blog appears to be in a constant state of "tweak". I think that is why the commenting facility is so erratic.
When posting comments here -because it is so weird right now- I recommend you copy comments into memory before attempting to post. That way, if the comment gets lost, you can try again using the "paste" feature without having to re-type anything.
My old cat had her checkup at the vet. Her foot is all healed and she is doing fine. She is still very needy -she is sitting on my lap as I type, and the other cats are mean to her. But she doesn't seem to care one jot.
She's a chip off the old block... ;)
