I had planned to write yesterday, but, events in the BBR took longer and were more exhausting than the plan prepared me to handle. Follow that with an unexpected melt-down of an emotional nature, & the Pearl for today got shuffled into the background. Then, upon awakening today, I found myself unwilling to tolerate the equanimity required to write with any skill; Smart Bee is being fractious, as well, so, I went looking for something from the archives, where I found this ancient Pearl from 2011, only a couple months after starting to post my messes here on WP. It’s a pretty good Pearl, in all, which takes the reader on an extensive trip through my head. Sadly, no one ever came to see it, or gave a Like, so, we’ll give it another shot at fame today, & see what happens…. I’ll be back tomorrow with some fresh material; too much built up in there to deny today, so, after one short trip to obtain critical supplies, I’ll be working at it all day, as much as my toleration for sitting allows.

Y’all be cool, & have a safe, happy weekend….

Too bad it doesn’t improve the flavor of this instant crap…….
