All that? Over a few stale maraschinos?….


Reality’s habit of asserting its prerogatives can be disconcerting, to say the least. Suffice it to say, elements of a very real nature have precluded a fresh Pearl today. It also made the search for an appropriate re-blog fairly extensive, but, no worries; so are my archives. Though it took more time & effort to find one, it seems worthwhile, as this one is fairly decent, though it didn’t see much traffic. Those who did so seemed to enjoy it, so, here ’tis once again, to garner a bit more attention before sliding back into obscurity.

As winter has made a return engagement the past two days, I should be able to go fresh by tomorrow; that isn’t a promise, though, as I’m too old to predict much of anything with certainty. Let’s just say, I will return, tomorrow if possible… Y’all take care out there, & try to enjoy the time we humans have left, which could be a much shorter time than any of us believe….which isn’t a prediction, just an observation….

See ya….

gigoid, the dubious



….. And, then, I woke up…. only to find the same white screen staring me in the face, with, again, absolutely no idea what to put on it, to relieve the vast, frightening, vacant blankness….. I am faced with what is becoming my signature struggle, to come up with something catchy, or startling, or any other adjective that would lend itself to getting people to read this, and to providing some sort of incentive for them to come back for more….

It seems that much of the traffic I end up with are folks who are attracted by the title, which as y’all know, has nothing at all to do with what is in these Pearls…. It also seems likely that those who haven’t been here before, and drop in because of what the title promises, might be disappointed to find that, for example, Papal edicts do offer wholesale…

  1. Archives are a life saver, huh? Drafts make the world so much brighter on days like these also….LOL Chopin is soothing this savage beastie….have a real good day and I will look back later….chuq

    • *grin* They are, indeed; I’m afraid, though, drafts are beyond me. I have enough problems writing fresh material; doing it ahead of time leaves me with a sense of ‘uncompleted task pending’, & I don;t feel right until it’s posted… SIGH… My own mild form of OCD when it comes to tasks… LOL!

      The day was further complicated by being forced to spend from 0530 to now, almost 4 hours, geeking my computer. A program wanted updating, & when I did, it lost track of a necessary file, forcing me to finally go get all my Windows updates from MS & Co. I just finished updating Windows with the latest stuff, & the damn program still can’t find the file…. Ah, well, the rest can wait, & so can the program…

      I commented over at IST once so far, & will be back to finish in a while; still raining here, so, little better to do than geek…

      Chopin is good; I’m doing Saint-Saëns for a soother today….

      See ya


      • I cannot sleep much so drafts are a way to keep from watching the tube…LOL They come in handy when I am having one of those days…wink wink….rain wass that? we have not had any in over a month….plus we had only about 2 days of cold weather…the rest have been cool….sucks for the fruit trees…..will see ya later….chuq
