MENTAL NOTE

"Though we cannot make our sun stand still, yet we will make him run."
Blue, resist the urge to use facebook. You can do it. Good luck.
Cats and dogs can be friends. So can cowboys and indians. So can we.
Why try to be the best when there's no hierarchy in heaven?

Santa, Where's My Shovel?

No, this is not a X-mas post. You can stopping running now. And I'm not wearing my sexy reindeer PJ's either (oh deer). In fact, I'm not even here. This is my answering machine. Blue is buried in snow — the metaphorical kind. Please leave a message after the beep.

Where are you, Blue? Blue?

    2. Well, actually -
      I'm as cute as cute can be - that's a number 3.
      I'll greet you at the door - that's a number 4.
      I'm hot and so alive - guess that's a number 5.
      I don't play with icy d____s, so I'm not a number 6.
      And that's - no joke.

  8. Blue you are somewhere
    You have a secret lair
    Is it as cold as the igloo
    You'll not be more blue
    Perhaps a warm retreat
    or one more discreet
    None to bother otherwise
    Call for something nice

    1. My secret lair looks like a desk
      Befitting my world of burlesque
      When I say snow, I mean too much work
      Making me feel like a desk clerk
      Thanks for stopping by Hank

      A warm retreat wouldn't that be great
      Too much already on my plate....

  9. Not even here? Wherefore art thou, Blumeo? Buried under snow, you say? Well then you shoulda donned your Rudolph jim jams to keep warm! Silly boy.

  10. Come on out of the snow, Blue! We'll make snow men and snow angels and have a snow ball fight! And then we can sit in front of a fire with hot chocolate and warm up. Okay?

  11. Snow? What is this snow that you speak of? I wish we got a little snow here in Las Vegas but alas, it's just not gonna happen.

  12. There's a little mistake in your comic, there. The word "BEEEEEER" has the R missing its tail end. Now I fear no one will understand what you're really screaming for.

    You're welcome for me pointing out the mistake.

  13. Metaphorically buried in snow.... How does one get out of that? Dig out with a pen???

  14. I am interested in these sexy deer pj's you speak of. Where can one find a pair? Are they next to the ugly holiday sweaters? I don't think I've been that good this year, but maybe I could seduce Santa into some good gifts if I had some of those pj's!

    And we are buried under snow here too. I. Hate. Winter.

    1. You could seduce Santa by just looking at him. Yeah, that's a compliment. You're buried under snow. My snow is slightly different: CLICK!

    2. Darling Blue, I am so sorry you are snowed under :( I hope you are able to shovel your way out soon :)

  17. We got snow last week and last night. A light dusting of snow.

    I took one more look at the Claridge studios which are located downtown this weekend before making the final decision to build my home. I loved the studios but was not impressed with the cigarette smoke that filled my nose as I walked on one of the floors and then as well the dogs yapping that I could hear through the door in the hallway. And those two factors led me to tell the realtor "This is not for me nor the Professor." So now I proceed with the building of my home. I have an absolutely fabulous weekend. I hope u did as well. I got plenty of downtime with the Professor as the roommate went home to her hubby and daughter this weekend. Just needed a few days to myself. Am getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Decorating and what not. Preparing the "comfort" food. Take care my friend.

    1. I hate cig smoke. It can literally kill me. A couple of weeks ago I walked into a bar because I needed something to drink (soda, of course), and everybody was smoking in that joint. I stayed for, what, a couple of minutes and before I knew it, I was ill for a couple of days. So, yeah, I cn relate.

      Good to hear you had so YOU time with the Professor. Won't it be great to have your own home? Will you give it a name?

      My weekends have been indistinguishable from my week days. All I do is work. So when I said I was snowed under, I meant on account of heapload of work. But at least I've got a job, right?

    2. That is so ADORABLE. Giving my home a name. And yes. I will. Because I read a lot of British mysteries they name their home. Went out with realtor again today. I am still looking. My house plans are drawn up. The drawback to that it that I have to build in country and it will be a lot of miles between me and my job(s). So I have to take into consideration gasoline prices over the next 25 years for job purposes as well as the Professor's care. I try to walk him every 6 hours. Today, I went back to the studios. After talking with the President of the Home Owners' Association regarding the cigarette smoke. They had planned to address that as some were slacking up. And they are so so so so so ADORABLE. So I still have time to decide what I want to do. Buy or build.

      Moi has a new man interested in her. Well, he's been interested for two to three years. I've lost count. Well, I decided to let Mr. "A" come into my life a wee bit. We will be at church tomorrow together. I have two friends that attend there as well so I will make the most of the time together. We will see--friends first. I go SLOW--

      The Professor has been on Prozac for a week now. Usually, it takes a month for a human to react. I do believe I am seeing some changes in his behavior. He wants to be rubbed and cuddled more. He will be on it for 6 to 12 weeks and then we will start some training for him. Replacing bad memories with good memories so to speak.

      Can u believe it is now Holiday Season? We put up the lights for outside this evening. We will put up the live tree and wreath after Thanksgiving. It already smells nice and pine coney in the studio.

      Cig smoke is NASTY!!! It does come with the territory though at times. And some of my best friends smoke. However, they do make a point to try and not smoke around me.

      Take care my friend. Hope u will be feeling well for the up and coming weeks as the holidays approach.

    3. So, Mister A is a real Mister E. I get it. You go slow? Really? Well, I believe that when I see it. Do focus on your house, though (if you don't mind my saying this ahem). Yes, it's the holiday season, and my butt is completely frozen. I so don't like winter, Miss Marples. It makes me grumpy and melancholic, not a very good combination. Good thing I've got a job to distract me. Cig smoke can kill me. I hate it.

      Take care and let me know whether you're gonna buy or build.

  18. Maybe you shouldn't look to Santa for help. He's highly overrated.

  19. Uh oh! I guess the weather is considerably worse in other parts of the world. Not much snow around here, but it is incredibly cold. Here's hoping you'll be able to dig yourself out soon!

    1. Hello, police department. Would you be so kind as to arrest me? I'm snowed under - meaning there's no snow but too much work to be done. I need a break, so please take me in. I hear your McSlammer is really tasty.
