Brain Dead

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.

Glad you got home!! Sounds like a good walk on your property is just the thing to celebrate!! I sure enjoyed the post from your trip. You did a wonderful job of sharing. I hope the weather was good for your homecoming it was beautiful here yesterday. I had the house opened up and we were watering the "dead" grass. I love the smell of early spring...weather says it's gonna snow next tuesday...I better enjoy the warm weather while it's here...

Welcome home! I think skewered may be the perfect adjective!

If I could only draw! A bunch of Americans on a skewer! Fantastic!

I am so laughing, and I'm inclined to agree with Buck this time for sure, you grumpy thing you.

Welcome home! While I loved the tour of Scotland through your eyes and delightful sense of humor and "creative" use of words :) (i.e. skewered), I have missed your "at home" writings and look forward to the "everyday stuff," as you put it!
