It's time to rock n roll into the week, dance on top of the desk, the car, or if you must on your bed... time to let the good times roll if you will with wild imaginations and move the thoughts into action in good or bad ways...
As I read the morning emails I sat letting my imagination roll as Dot/Mom/Cob described her weekend findings: A ground hog at the river in VA that walked toward her with attitude. She shot, she missed. It moved in under the cabin. I cried. Only later to return home to the smell of "skunk" infiltrating her home, the wild kingdom now following her as I imagined her shooting holes in the floor there on a rampage. I cried again, thinking perhaps I bruised a rib and read on. Doors open, windows open, she then had visions of babies under the house, a community of skunks while groundhogs were having a party at the river in her absence... what is next in VA, bears perhaps or maybe just Kamryn on a sugar overload?
Hello Monday, you sure do look good to me! Sun shining, final proofing of Down The Hallway slow but sure, line by line, word by word... as visions of skunks, groundhogs Mom with a gun now stomping through her home trying to scare the critters off go bouncing through my mind. Only to see through the tears of laughter as the day goes full tilt and zooms by here at the end of September the last day of this fast paced month.
Hard to imagine tomorrow begins October in all her glory, but what a day to end on, only to finish that email, jump on facebook reading my buddy Ken Hess is eating Liver n Onions... Enough to flip the stomach if ever their was something so early in the day after such a read. I'm sure if he or Joe Graff lived in VA they would slay the ground hog and stew up the skunk just cos' they are that good!
But for now, Dot/Mom/Cob is left with Kamryn and chocolate, with foot stomping and music, and heaven help us her gun. She is by now in the pool at the YMCA or volunteering at the Nursing Home weaving great stories to those she volunteers with, and hatching a plan! Perhaps she will sneak the residents out for the day and go on a groundhog hunt, or a skunk search... Wild times in the little town with an escort by the Sheriff lights and sirens to boot!
I can see it now.
The town will toast her, will proclaim the day with her being the SKUNK slayer. they will not have to wait for groundhog day to announce spring as she will be standing on the streets with the dead groundhog in hand! Maybe the whole community can get involved in this and celebrate! Even the local church can put up a sign like the one I found here...
And in other news today... oh wait, that news bad or is scary stuff, this is much funnier, let's just stay with this! Start the week of right, with laughter, with humor, with imagination and move from there.
Yep, that's all I have to say about that.
Somewhere something awful has happened, something bad is happening... and for that we all offer up hope, prayers and thoughts of healing.
For those serving our great Nation, we support and we offer gratitude.
Walk in beauty,
