I’m still here – honest!

I just realised the entire month of November has come and gone without a single posting. While I may not be the most prolific of posters I do try and get something up here on a semi-regular basis. In fact, not since May 2008 have I missed posting for an entire month.

Writers blockSo what happened? Who knows? It’s easy enough to lay the responsibility for my lack of loquaciousness on the dreaded “writer’s block” but I'm not so sure that’s entirely fair. No, it just seems that I was incredibly busy last month and posting took a back seat to everything else that was going on – which, in hindsight, really wasn't very much at all. Sure, I went for a week’s golfing trip to Fort Lauderdale (hot and sunny – thank you!). And I was down with a cold for a few days. And… Okay, now I'm rationalizing. Suffice it to say dear readers (both of you) that I will endeavour to be more forthcoming with witty and brilliant content as 2014 drags inexorably to its eventual demise, to be replaced by a new year containing lots of good two-wheeled material.

In the meantime I will leave you with this, my contribution to Christmas decorations in the family abode.  It has blinking lights and plays a tinny Xmas song, but for totally unjustifiable reasons I wasn't allowed to put the batteries in. No wonder I'm having trouble trying to summon up the Christmas spirit; there’s a Grinch in the house.

Xmas Santa

  1. Canajun, you are forgiven ... you see November had the same number of calendar days but somehow so many fewer hours. Where did the month go?

    1. VSL - I know. And now we're, what, 3 weeks from Christmas? Life is flying by way too fast for my liking.

  2. Pretty nice looking decoration. You could post a recording of the tinny music and take a poll...

    1. Richard - Great idea. Perhaps I can send the missus to the store and sneak a couple of double-As in there and make a recording while she's out.

  3. Canajun, time does move at a rapid pace any more. It appears you have at least 3 readers and I look forward to your 2015 reports. Merry Christmas to you and the Grinch!

  4. We all have periods of time when blogging is just the furthest from our minds, and even if we think of it, the mood doesn't strike sufficiently enough.

    I like the decoration. No batteries is better than it getting smashed by any significant other that it might annoy. :-)

  6. Hey, count me in as a reader ;-) The winter months tend to be a little slow for most of us (insert excuses such as the flu, being busy, pre-christmas stuff etc.).
    Wishing you and your loved ones Happy Holidays. (I am afraid I can relate to the Grinch in the house.)
