A BETTER DAY FOR FRANKLIN

Dear Hearts and Gentle People,

Franklin feels better today. He's eating supper as I type, but I gave him a reduced amount of kibble.

Sadly, last night's rain filled Lake Junebug. The dogs can't potty without splahing across the lake. It took quite a while to convince Penelope that it was safe.

I offer praise to Favorite Young Man for the furnace repair. My son is one of my favorite companions. He's so intelligent. I enjoy discussing politics and books with him. Many of our conversations consist of recommending documentaries to one another.

I also appreciate that I know I'm safe because of my son. He protects me.

I have a lot of editing to do--which is always a good, happy problem--so you probably won't hear from me again until Nov. 7 when I announce the winner in my Battle of the Bands.

If I didn't respond to your comment on my most recent post or haven't left a comment on your blog, it isn't because I don't care about you. My time is limited; furthermore, of late Blogger has said, Yes, you may comment here, but No, you may not answer here. We are slaves to Blogger.

Franklin and Penelope are good friends. It makes me happy. We love our little girl.


Please sing us out, Alanis. I don't think I've ever mentioned my fondness for your music.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

    1. I love Alanis, too. So everyone knows--the video isn't directed at my ex-husband. It's my "I'm sick of you, Mr. Duplicity" song.

  10. So glad Franklin is feeling better. One can get so worried when they are sick. I bet rice is on the menu for him. I think that it is wonderful how well you get along with your son. It is to be cherished

    It is so good to have someone watching out for you and making you feel safe. :):)
    Glad Penelope has already become a member of the family. She's a lucky girl to have you and Franklin. :)

    1. The backyard always floods when it rains. I expect it, but the dogs seem surprised every time.

  18. I swear I commented. But lately I have been hitting delete instead of publish...( A working brain would be very appreciated.)
    I think I said something like what a beautiful princess to live with such a handsome brother in a castle with a Queen.

    cheers, parsnip

    1. My comments disappear sometimes after I click on publish, and the comment appears. Then a day later I look at the blog and the comment is gone. Penelope is indeed a princess. Last night Favorite Young Man put her on my lap. I had a blanket around her. She was frightened, so we didn't cuddle for long. We'll gradually build up to longer cuddles.

  20. I am glad that Franklin is feeling better, it sucks when one has to splash through water just to do their business I wouldn't like it so I am sure they don't like it either
