One photo and “J” stories voting reminder

Some might have noticed (most won’t) I’ve been absent from the blog (and from reading blogs I subscribe to). ‘Been busy with other stuff, I have. I hope that I’ll be able to catch up on what I missed, but I give you fair warning . . . I might not.

Depending on how much I missed and when I’ll get back to my normal routine (hopefully later this week), I might just start reading going forward.

For them who might worry something’s wrong . . . nope! Just busy, is all.

Anyway here’s a quick reminder to — if so inclined — please read the “J” stories that went up early last week. After, the writers hope you’ll make the effort and vote for your favorite of the “Alphabet Challenge J-Stories” HERE.

That post has links to the individual stories and the poll where readers can click a box to cast a vote for their favorite. And, after voting, readers can spread the news about the story to friends and family. Maybe, or maybe not. But, we hope for maybe.

And now, here’s the photo . . . I happened to look at the gargoyle guarding our patio, and dang it if I didn’t catch him eating the potted plant.

Honest, I didn’t know I was supposed to feed it.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
