... the dust is gone! But of course, I didn't actually take a photo to show you the difference between yesterday's sky and today's. You'll just have to believe me.
Cynthia K and Stefanie told me that the dust storm made the news in Canada and the USA. I'm amazed! Many of you kindly hoped and prayed for rain with me, Hippomanic Jen reminded me that in this brown dry land, 'rain' is nearly a myth, Swift Jan and my Crazy Sister left their windows open with disastrous results and I nearly made Heather cough from the opposite side of the world.
I just want to let you know that I am reading all your kind, witty and insightful comments on my blog, even if I'm not responding to them much nowadays. Most of the time I'm within arm's reach of my little laptop nowadays, I am feeding Joseph. This means that I only have one hand to blog/comment with, and if that's my left hand, it's very difficult indeed. Mainly because my computer is on my right.
But, not wanting to end up with one large saggy breast and one small saggy breast in old age, I have decided to continue feeding on both sides, thereby limiting my possible blogging/commenting time to half of the original time available.
("Grandma, why is one of your breasts large and the other is small?" "Well little one, when I was nursing my third child, I had this blog ...")
This is why I'm not blogging much, not commenting much, and hardly responding to your kind comments at all. I am very sorry about this, but I am enjoying reading your own blogs and the comments you leave on mine immensely.
Now. To celebrate this, my 500th post, let me share and insane email that popped up in my Inbox this morning.
I have been receiving a ridiculous amount of spam email recently to my real account. I have no idea how my real address got 'out there', but it did. All of the spam gets promptly deleted, but this mysterious email came to my Inbox instead of my Spam box. So I read it.
Have you had this email? I bet I'm not alone. Read it and smirk:
My name is Lilian i saw your proffle on email http://www.vixi.com.au/ and admire it i think we can make it together, therefore i would like you to contact me back throug my email address thus:( email@example.com) i will tell you more about myself and i will also send you my photo as soon as you contact me back. Hopping to hear from you soonest, UNDERSTAND THAT LOVE IS ONE, Lilian WITH LOVE AND TRUST Love & Kiss. ( firstname.lastname@example.org
I probably won't do anything about this email. But part of my just wants to string this sender along (a la Brad Christensen). Why am I too chicken to amorously reply, offering one of the following as a "photo of myself"?
