A DRIPPY OUTLOOK @ 12:15 pm

Current Mood: working working
Current Music: Puddle Up For Me, Baby by R. U. Wet

I’m sorry I haven’t responded to everyone’s blogs the last few days, but I’ve had more company. (I was on top of it, Dot, and disguised the sporks.)

 

Today is gray and soggy. A little too soggy. They’re calling for 3 to 4 inches in less than an hour this afternoon. This can’t be good.

So whilst the wet stuff slams against the windows I think I’ll jump back into revisions on THE NAME CHANGERS. Maybe I’ll work on one of the spooky scenes since I do have all this ambiance going for me right now.

But first…I must share something cute with you guys. These are the phone messages left at my sister’s (She and hubby are sound sleepers.) house from her granddaughter on her 6th birthday.

 

7:20 AM

GRANDDAUGHTER: “Good Mommy? Good Daddy? Cartoons are on. Hi!”

CLICK

 

7:23 AM

GRANDDAUGHTER: “I forgot to tell you. It’s my birthday! I’m watching cartoons. Are you up? I’m six now.”

CLICK

 

7:25 AM

GRANDDAUGHTER: “This is M, your granddaughter. Did you remember it’s my birthday? I’m six!”

CLICK

 

7:27 AM

“HALLOOOOO? Can YOU hear me? I’ll hold on ‘til you get up.” (Several minutes of breathing pass and then a parental voice is heard “M? What are you doing? You’d better not be on the…”)

CLICK


Oh...and...

8:03 AM 
Good Mommy and Good Daddy call M. and they all live happily ever after.

She IS precious. I could scoop her up and keep her, but then her parents would probably smack me.

Awwwww...thanks!

She figured out the nap thing last year. And I didn't have anything to do with it, T.

Well...M's parents have tried everything to keep her off the phone, but she's pretty good at secret calls.

So glad your sporks are safe. :)

And of course, her goodmommy and gooddaddy should be up and waiting on the birthday girl! Very cute.

Well of course...they should have been up! I'm surprised she didn't start her phone attack much earlier.

I'm in West Virginia. We're neighbors, Liz. Well...sort of. I thought you were waaaay up north.

It's very soggy here. We got about 3 inches this afternoon. The earth looks plump and ready to explode. Fingers crossed that the downstairs stays dry. Shoot...fingers crossed that the backyard stays a backyard and doesn't slide down into the neighbor's driveway.

It's nice to remember the days where you did wake up early to broadcast your birthday to the world!
Too cute.

Hey! Even after 48 years I still wake up early on my birthday...much to my hubby's dismay.

Thank you, Meg. And good luck on the zillion things you've got in the works. Oh...to have just a third of your energy.

She's quite the story supplier. I just can't convince my nephew and his wife to loan her out for the summer.

sporks :0)

I hope you had a chance to work on THE NAME CHANGERS and didn't get too much of a downpour. Will the rain ever stop? We're getting a lot too, but not as much as you are.

Thanks for sharing the phone messages - I can almost hear them in my head. Too funny!

The rain finally went away and we have sun again. (Made me think of puddle jumping. LOL.)
