Poor Thing Keeps Asking Me Why His Bath Water is So Salty and Has a Bay Leaf in It.

But thus far I don't think he's caught on. It's probably best he remain in the dark as long as possible.

Gobble gobble gobble, y'all!

(And I know commenting over there's a little complicated, so feel free to hop on back over here after you read that story and laugh with me in the comments. I get lonely laughing by myself, plus it makes me look like I'm a few side dishes short of a full Turkey Day feast, if you know what I mean.)

Wild and Gooey Ride

Life continues to keep us hoppin' up here - Peabody finally fell to the nasty cold the rest of us have had for SWEET FOREVER overnight Friday night, so it's pretty much been a snot storm of a weekend at the Manor (sorry, Mom)!

I wrote about a chaotic little island of peacefulness (I know, HUH?!) in "Snow Globe" at 5 Minutes for Parenting this morning. Hope to hear from y'all over there!

This is Not What I Promised You. I Promise.

Happy November Tooth!

I promised you pictures but then the weekend sortof took on a life of its own and before I knew it, Sunday night had arrived and there were no pictures edited to post for y'all. Phooey.

Good news is there are even more pictures to post now because I took about a zillion Saturday night and my Dad sent me a zillion more that he and my Mom took while we were at the beach so now when I actually do get around to posting pictures it's going to be like the opening of a big new installation in The Gallerie d' FriedOkra. Really! With cocktails and heavy hors d'oeuvres. HOT AND COLD ones, people. On real plates! I'm not just talking a big basket of goldfish crackers and a box of Franzia here!

And I don't want to give away too many of my secrets but there may be some video footage of Mr. Peabody, too, in his jammies.

So you can forgive me.


In the meantime I will send you off to 5 Minutes for Parenting where I'm sharing a really clever idea for how to wrest some of that Halloween candy out of the tightly-clinched fists of your small people. WITHOUT HAVING TO CALL THE PARAMEDICS. YES! You too can be peaceably candy-free again by tomorrow morning if you read my post, work fast and employ a little, um, creative imagery, shall we say.
