Bad blogger and bad blogger friend! Ok - failed to come back and post pics of the boy (result tonight). Before THAT, I lost my cache (who knows how these things happen - maybe the Malbec did it - maybe the Tempranillo - how will we solve this mystery?), so I was unable to even LOG IN to bloglines before they unceremoniously shed me like one of Bristle Paylin's costumes in her tree like 'dances' - whoops - don't let me drift down THAT road (why is one a "star" by simply getting pregnant as a teen daughter of a dolt who quit her job when the going got tough? - whoops again, more than drifted down that road now!).
All this to explain my absence from commenting - I went to the Queen - Thalia - and scrolled through her expa - HUGE blog list, but now I have to get a reader option. AND I'm supposed to hear about our new mortgage for the new house AND we haven't yet AND we're supposed to close on Thursday AND then I'm going to DC on Friday AND things are very, very stressful around here. So I'm sorry - many apologies and once/if I'm settled, I do hope to remedy my absence. And now - without further ado:
