I never imagined that it would take 11 days into the year before I got my act together enough to post. I will attribute this to a number of things...
We only just had snow again Saturday after 2 weeks of nothing. I think that this has me confused (more so than usual for a guy my age) regarding weather matters. We were at +3 Celsius a few days ago. Someone told me that it was the same temperature as Tampa, Florida on that day. I hear that they have had freezing weather this past week, so I will bank on switching from OJ to something like cranberry or prune juice in the near future.
I think, also, that I have been in a bit of a funk since Canada lost to the USA in the World Junior Hockey Championship in Saskatchewan last week. We had won so many in a row that I think everyone takes it for granted that we have hockey supremacy. The US showed a lot of grit and snatched the cup away. Remember, though, that you have football (as in toss the pigskin, not soccer) and basketball and baseball...hockey is our game!
I had also made a bit of a promise after my last posting (my 100th) that I wouldn't post again until I had made progress on a short story that has been swirling about in my brain the past few weeks, since Remembrance Day. I have a lot of work to do on it still, but I at least have made enough progress to report on it and convince me that I still have a blog about writing and not just 'schtuff about that guy up in Canada in that Newfoundland place.'
I would also like to thank Jarmara Falconer over at A Mission Impossible for the Nightwriter for bestowing upon me the One Lovely Blog Award. Those of you who have followed my blog for the past few months will recall that I am a two-time
I am supposed to pass this on to 15 other blogging friends. I am thinking, though, that most of you who read my blog have also been presented The Lovely Pink Teacup Award within the past few months. If you haven't and are reading my blog (yes, you!) then you are displaying impeccable taste and are therefore more than worthy of this fine award. You are a winner in my books!
