DON'T COME KNOCKIN' ON MY DOOR OR RINGIN' THE BELL

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

I have returned to my kidnapped state in the snow and cold to Coffee Chat about editing with S.K. Anthony and Lynda Dietz at Easy Reader.

Please join us and be sure to wish Lynda a belated happy birthday. We have learned that we share a birthday (it was Sunday), and we might be triplets because I have a twin.

2 + 1 = 3

I'll look for you at Lynda's house.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

P.S. And I promise MOVIE WEEKEND will appear -- as long as we don't have another Operation El Gato.

    1. I kinda sorta have a twin, but she's a real person.

  3. One other thing I forgot to mention about kidnapping victims. Not only are they supposed to keep you warm, they are supposed to feed you chocolate and anything else your heart desires. Remind them.

  4. Shelly, you are one of the most intelligent people I know.

  5. When I was a kid, I napped a lot. See, we have something in common too. Operation El Gato... What did I miss? What did I miss?

    1. Look back at posts from the last couple of days and you'll learn all about El Gato.

  6. Janie, you're the best kidnapped victim I've ever had. Thanks for being such fun, Dear Queen of Grammar! :)

  7. Katherine, you're adorable. You can kidnap me anytime.

  8. I didn't know you had a twin! Double trouble? Were you? When you were kids (pun intended, grammar mistakes not).

    1. We didn't know each other as children. In fact, we still haven't met.

  9. I also have a twin of sorts. Her birthday is exactly a month before mine, and we always told people that she took all the good pigment when she came out, thus explaining why she's so dark and I'm so pale. Wish I hadn't waited...I could use a skin color that doesn't reflect light nearly so well.

    We loved having you for Coffee Chat, and are packing up all the warm clothing donations even as we speak. We can wait until grape-harvesting season next time. You'll like the smell better than the live chickens we used to warm you up this time before the coats arrived.

    1. Yup. I think you may be our triplet. I'm so pale I bear a strong resemblance to Caspar the Friendly Ghost. During high school, I was in a photo printed in the school paper. My face looked like a white blob in the center of the photo. My twin was born very late on Feb. 22nd, and I was born very early on the 23rd; but we were born the same year. The chickens were interesting. I continue to pluck feathers from my hair and I found an egg in my bra.

    1. Not if you're kidnapped on a warm sunny day in Florida!

  11. What is your heritage that you are so fair? I should probably know the answer. German?

    1. Some German on my dad's side. However, my dad had black hair and a very dark complexion. My mom's family was ALL Norwegian. She was part of the first generation born in America. I probably get my fair skin from them. Many of them have red hair, too. (My kids have auburn hair.)

  12. I read your interview. I'm so glad you were treated well over there! I'm sure you'll read my comment, but I'll add it here, too. When I am finished rewriting my manuscripts, would it be okay if I hire you to edit them?

  13. Enjoyed seeing you over there. And how dare the Queennap you. OH well it all worked out in the end.
