Comment early and often –well before 5pm today. At that stage my blog will go for a short holiday for a few hours, some background moving and shaking needs to be done.

I can just imagine Michele & co from Blacknight my friendly Hosting Co; all decked out with rubber gloves and feather dusters flicking about in the bowels of my blog. Thanks guys!

Grannymar will return all bright and effervescent without the help of liver salts!

Thursday Special ~ Dogs Welcome

A man wrote a letter to a small hotel in a Midwest town he planned to visit on his vacation.

He wrote:

I would very much like to bring my dog with me.
He is well-groomed and very well behaved. Would you be willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night?

An immediate reply came from the hotel owner, who wrote:


I’ve been operating this hotel for many years. In all that time, I’ve never had a dog steal towels, bedclothes, silverware or pictures off the walls. I’ve never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly. And I’ve never had a dog run out on a hotel bill. Yes, indeed, your dog is welcome at my hotel. And, if your dog will vouch for you, then you are welcome to stay here, too.
