TODAY'S NEWS TOMORROW

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

The meaning behind the title of this post is that you'll get today's news tomorrow, which should be Monday because as far as I know, today is Sunday.

After I go to the post office tomorrow, I'll tell you how many cards we have. We won't be up to 80 yet, but no need to fret. More cards are in the mail, and I have lots of extra birthday cards. I can ask my neighbors to sign cards and ask all the servers at the local restaurant that Willy Dunne Wooters and I haunt.

I'm going to mail the cards, along with my Christmas present for Margaret, on the 20th. I'll use priority mail so everything is there before Christmas. If I receive some cards after the 20th, I'll send them along as I get them.

Of course, the giveaway has ended. Tomorrow, when I tell you how many cards we have, I'll also announce the winners.

Hang in there everybody! For those of you who have snow, don't give yourself a heart attack shoveling. It was kind of warm and sticky here. Then it rained yesterday evening and most of the night. It cooled off some.

We had a tiny cold snap recently. Harper started growing a winter coat. Then it warmed up, and he started losing the winter coat. His fur doesn't know what to do.

See ya tomorrow!


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  1. We had a husky like that. She was ALWAYS blowing her coat. Can't wait to see how close you got... such a fun idea!!

    And no Tony's were harmed in shoveling the rainy wintry mix we had, honest. :)

    1. Did you have The Society for The Protection of Tonys on hand to keep him safe?

    1. We might not have 80 by the 20th, but we'll be very close. I won't have any problem closing the gap.

    2. Yes, it's nice, but doing it is making me just as happy as I hope receiving the cards will make Margaret.

    1. Oh, I'll get to 80 if I have to sign a few cards with pseudonyms and write with my left hand. Willy Dunne Wooters can sign a card, too, and so can Harper and Franklin.

  4. Had a "cold snap", did ya? Plunged all the way down to 75, did it?

    I hope you come real close to your target number of 80 cards. (That really is a sweet thing for you to do.)

    1. Actually, I think we might have gotten down in the fifties, or even a little chillier at night. I can still deal with the cool weather, but Willy Dunne Wooters and Favorite Young Man have gone native and want it to be 80 degrees all the time.

  8. Dear Janie, you've certainly done a yeoman's job with regard to birthday cards for your mother-in-law. I hope they raise her spirits and help her appreciate all the good she's done during her life. Peace.

    1. We won't have any snow where I live, Jo-Anne. We had some rain over the weekend, though.

  13. I'm glad you will manage to get enough cards by hook or crook. I sent the one and completely forgot to send another one. I would have had to make one and I've been busy getting out my Christmas cards. So sorry! I'm sure she will appreciate all the effort! :)
