Okay, I have been a little brain-dead lately. Sleep comes at odd times and hits hard. Hopefully, things will get back to normal – whatever normal may be. Toby and I got up before 5 AM today. We should not have taken such a long nap on Saturday afternoon, but we were both so dang tired. So, we got up and got our coffee and sat in our recliners to read – me with a new art magazine and Toby with his laptop. Toby read my post where I mentioned that the UK folks "had a skewered view of America." He very "kindly" pointed out that I had used the wrong word. He said I should have used "skewed" not "skewered." He went to the internet dictionary to prove his point. He laughed. He snickered. He said that I should draw a cartoon of Americans on as skewer to show the BBC’s viewpoint. Then he laughed and snickered some more. I told him that it was really not that funny, but he continued to giggle. He will be getting his own coffee this morning.
