There once was a girl we’ll call Katie,

Who was horribly allergic to poison ivy.

One sunny day she was out,

And traipsed all about

And waits  to start itching like crazy

D: Really, A?

A: How’d you like my limerick, D?

D: Is this what you’re calling creativity today?

A: Maybe.

D: We are all doomed.

fireworkds (1)A: Cheers, D. There is too much going on for planned creativity – carnivals, farewells, gardening, poison ivy near misses (no itchies yet!), boat rides, sun bathing and fireworks!

D: And this?

A: This is my farewell post – for at least a couple of days. I wanted to give a ridiculously huge cybernetic hug to all the guest bloggers who will be keeping you out of mischief and this blog from dying a horrible death due to my neglect.

D: . . .

A: I know. I know. It’s a bloody wonder it hasn’t already died, right?

D: You took the words right out of my mouth, A.

A: Oh, if only . . . ! Starting July 8, the guest bloggers are going to take over this blog and fill it with their creativity and words. Each one of these incredible bloggers (Charles, Helena, John, Ionia, Marie, Craig, TC , Andra and Briana) is fantastic and I cannot wait to have their lovely, insightful, funny and brilliant words gracing this space. I feel so lucky and blessed! Thank you, all of you, for telling your tale with me!

D: A, I think you need to leave now.

A: Pardon?

D: You have reached your adjective limit for the day. We understand; they’re great.

A: Cheers, D – please remember to behave yourself while I’m gone, ‘kay?

D: Behave? As if I would do anything less!

A: Oh boy. I apologize in advance for his ego and his antics. This is A, signing off. In the words of my favorite Doctor, Allons-y!!

    1. Thank you, Jack! I’ll be back – I can’t stay away for long; I’d go through withdrawal! 🙂 I’ll miss everyone too and may have to come visit in between writing bouts – I wrote 5k words tonight, so that bodes well!


    1. It is a wonderful group and I’m a lucky duck! It’s going to be very freeing and a little anxiety-inducing to write as much and be as restricted from the internet (with a few visits here and there) as I intend to be, but I’m excited.

      PS: Welcome back – I was really really happy when I saw your posts show up in my email again. Missed you!


    1. Thank you, Andra – I’m going to miss connecting with everyone, too! I may need to take a break at the weekend to make sure I don’t start wearing tissue boxes as shoes! 🙂


    1. Exactly – lol. He should be good. He’s actually going to be spending a great deal of time helping me write about the Irish ‘land of the young’ – Tir na nOg – which is the sole setting for Part 3.

      Thanks – and thank you for the guest post. It debuts tomorrow at 6 am central time!
