Pet Monologues Showcase
Pet Monologues is the blog which I directed you to showing that incredible video about the lion hugging the woman who rescued him. I sure was moved and I think many of you were too!! Also they highlight art, poems and more that showcase animals every week. You can see there blog here.Â And this is the post for this particular challenge. This is the first time I have entered anything. This image is extra wide because of their requirements. I hope you enjoy!!

I am having a hard time finding much get up and go right now. I am way behind on blogging and posting and my browser is like molasses. (For those who might not understand that phrase, it means that it is moving very slowly like cold molasses.) Perhaps I have too many windows and programs open right now. If I can only get some things done, then it might speed up.
The other big thing is finances … I have to get going on Susan’s and my taxes … and it is all feeling like molasses!! Do I hear you saying, no wonder? And I am working on a potential design and sometimes that is scary. So it is one of those times that feels a little overwhelming! Thank you for being in my life and caring.

Growing up, we always said “slower than molasses in January” and since it could get down to 60 below in Minnesota… that was darn cold!
Then there is this joke:
There was a mamma mole, a papa mole, and a baby mole. They lived in a hole outside of a farm house out in the country.
One morning, the papa mole reached his head out of the hole and said, “Mmmmm, I smell sausage.”
The mama mole reached her head outside of the hole and said, “Mmmmm, I smell pancakes.”
As the baby mole repeatedly tried to stick his head out of the hole to get a whiff, he became frustrated because the two bigger moles were in the way.
Unable to take it any longer, the baby mole mumbled, “The only thing I can smell is molasses.”

When life gives you molasses, it’s time to take a hot bath. It warms up those slow-ass mole-asses. Excuse my bad puns.
What I need to do when that happens to me is quit all applications and restart, while I go away from what I am doing for at least 15-30 minutes. The pressure is on, time to go breathe. I wish you well and hope you feel better soon.
Love this photo, Diane! You make these animals into Super heroes!

That is a great picture Diane, looks great.
We have something here called “stroop” that moves very slowly too. It takes forever to get where you want it to go.
I am sorry you are stuck in such a slow moving world right now and then doing taxes on top of that. That’s not a lot of fun. Luckily, Eduard and I don’t have that problem. It has all been done for us by the tax people. Don’t ask me how!
Sophocles once said: “There’s nothing in the world so demoralizing as money. ” I guess it’s still true 200 years later (give or take a few decades)…. I am of no use in this department..Except to wish you lots of green for 2008 :)!
