After the Fox



Hello, fellow babies! A very brief -- especially for me -- explanation of "where I've been." (Boring, too!) I'm having computer issues, and have no working internet connection at home. This is unlikely to change at any time in the near future. My computer time, formerly almost unlimited, is now severely limited to the whims of the public library and the occasional good graces of a friend!

And this, right after I was getting back into the swing of things following a two-month sabbatical! Needless to say, I'm somewhat demoralized in terms of writing in general. I can't even keep up with emails, never mind reading and commenting on my favorite blogs.

Now I know how Charlie Brown felt every time Lucy pulled that effin' football out of his way whenever he attempted to kick it!

I'm going to try -- TRY -- to throw a post on this blog once in a while, but don't hold your breath.

(And give yourself a biiiiig pat on the back if you know where I got the title for today's post!)

Thanks for your time.

  1. Can Pat, pat himself on the back? Would that be Pat having a pat attack? For it is a movie title, that I knew. Although it is one I have yet to view.

    Sucks indeed Charlie Brown, Lucy you should crown.

  2. I think you'd enjoy it, Pat. Victor Mature, essentially playing a Victor Mature type, and Peter Sellers, who's almost always great!

    1. Thanks, Rebecca... but as I said, it's likely to be a long, long while.

  6. Ouch! I hope the cyber-situation clears up soon. I definitely feel your pain - that month or so living with my Mom and having limited Internet access was definitely painful.

    3. Have you toured my brain, too?

    4. No, now that would be scary. ha. Besides, you'd never let anyone in to do that. lol. Come to think of it, I'm not sure how a tour of Pat's brain came about. But once I'm in I'm there for good. It's a little more clean and organized than I would think yours would be....ducks.....

  8. Let me take a wild guess. It was the second Inspector Clouseau movie starring Peter Sellers and Elke Sommer?

    2. Cute. (And quirky. Very much.) But no, "A Shot in the Dark" was the title of the actual second Inspector Clouseau movie, starring Peter Sellers and Elke Sommer.

    3. I knew that, Silver. But Skip said "a wild guess" and that's similar to a "shot in the dark" so it was a pun...the movie title AND the expression. :)

    4. But you said "no" to my saying it was a pun.

    5. But I wasn't sure if you knew about the movie "A Shot in the Dark." Oh, well.

      Gotta go, doll.

  10. I never knew that Victor Mature was his real name. It sounded so much like something the geniuses in Hollywood would dream up.

    1. My two favorite quotes BY Victor Mature: "I'm not an actor — and I've got sixty-four films to prove it!" and "Actually, I am a golfer. That is my real occupation. I never was an actor. Ask anybody, particularly the critics."
