Two Happy Things — No, More Than Two

Okay, first, Mom is taking me to O’Charley’s tonight for Prime Rib! We were going to wait until Magdalena’s reopens, but O’Charley’s, in a burst of corporate jollity, sent my husband, Charlie, a discount card and today is the last day it’s good. Charlie detests eating out. We can only suppose they sent everybody named Charles a card.

Second, I forgot to tell you in yesterday’s list that I also successfully jiggered my electronic tablet to not drop me off the internet every time it loaded the Google Search. GEEK ALERT Turns out it’s a conflict between a new Javascript on the Google Search page and “older” (a year or two) tablets. Can’t be resolved. If this is happening to you, disable the Wi-Fi, load the browser, select a different default search engine, set a different home page than Google browser, and set your default bookmark to something other than Google browser. Then close the browser and re-enable wi-fi. END GEEK ALERT

Third, we’re getting three foody places in the area soon: Magdalena’s will be opening soon, in a new location but still nearby; Point Blank Brewing Company will soon be opening in the old Magdalena’s location; and a shop selling “wine, cheese, gourmet food, gifts” called Red, White, and Blush is getting ready to open where Colokial was. Hmm-hmm-hmmm-hmmmm <–chuckling with my mouth closed so the drool doesn’t run out

Okay, meanwhile, here are some website that make-a me happy:

ZooBorns – Who wouldn’t be happy, looking at pictures of cute little baby animals?

I Think; Therefore, I Yam (Cogito Ergo Spud) – One of the funniest women on God’s green earth. This link leads directly to one particular keyboard-baptizing post, but they’re all good.

Life On The Muskoka River – Another of the funniest women on God’s green earth, eh? <-She’s Canadian.

I got my hair cut yesterday, and had compliments on it, which rather saddened me, since it will never look that way again. I don’t style my own hair; I enter into negotiations with it.

Tomorrow is Caturday, you know, and Sunday is Sample Sunday. Oh! And tomorrow is the first of the month, too, so I’ll have a new Hot Flash for you and the three Summer Reading Trail stories will vanish from this blog, so go to the Free Reads page and find them while you can!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write a scene with beer, good food, hair and cute little baby animals in it. Canada is optional.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Had to laugh at your comment about negotiating with your hair. I always love it when I go for my haircut and perm and walk out looking so nicely styled. That lasts for 24 hours.

    Enjoy your dinner out. We have some terrific eateries here in our small town, and I may have to talk my hubby into going to one of them tonight. Unlike your Charlie, my hubby does like to eat out.

      Dinner was disappointing. The vegetables were outstanding, but the meat was yiccchhhh! Mom thought so, too, so it isn’t just that I’m out of the habit of meat-eating. :/ Can’t win ’em all!
