Advance Apologies

RL has been a little busier than anticipated, which explains my recent sporadic commenting and anemic posts.  I have been thinking about taking a bit of a blogging break, when the human body that I inhabit showed its support by inviting some unwelcome microscopic guests. Seriously? After millions of years, can't we just get along?

I can anecdotally confirm that this has indeed been an active cold and flu year and am waiting for the research that will attribute it to contemporary weather patterns.

Maru in a raincoat. I doubt that our cats are jealous.

I might pop by from time to time as everything is subject to change, but for now I am taking some time off-line. I will see you soon.

During my last nap, I discovered the meaning of life, the universe and everything, which I must share with everyone. It is......izzzzz.....

*dozes off*.


  1. Enjoy your nap. See you when you get back.

  2. Isn't the meaning of life 42?
    my poor Ant. Get better soon.

    Apparently the flu season has peaked here and is in its downward spiral.

    When is Maru ever not cute? I wubs him :)

  3. So long and thanks for all the fish......

    see you soon hopefully.

    Take care.

  4. I have whiskey, brandy, honey, lemon and ginger. Feel better soon.

  5. @Vinny, thanks, sleep is gooooood.

    @Sprite, it probably is.:)
    Thank you. *cough*
    We're just heading into ours, thought I'd get an early start. Miasmatic kids, I tell ya.
    One loves Maru. He's even got a book out.

    *sneeze* okay, I'm done now.

  6. You will be missed. Feel better soon!

  7. @Alistair, I'm just taking a mini-break, not traveling to the restaurant at the end of the universe;)

    Thanks for the well wishes.

    @Nubian, are you sicky too?

    Whishky and Bandy to takesh away tshe misery? Good idea. *hick*

    Thanks, it's the plan. Consuming copious amounts of garlic, thyme, sage, kale...I smell like an herb garden.

  8. @Meg, thanks times two.
    I'll still be around, just not able to keep up with blogs as much as I want to right now.

  9. All I can say is advance appreciation for when you return.

  10. Oh Sure.. leave US with all the work!! [sheesh]

  11. I am sure that I read somewhere that the secret of life was 42?

  12. I think if I apologized every time that I took a break from my blog I'd have a lot more posts.



  13. Hope you're feeling better, and that you get back soon.. I have an award for you at :)

  14. Robert, exactly, US and the heavy lifting.

    I hope you will leave a trail of breadcrumbs...or maybe something non-edible (talk about cautionary tales) - so that you find your way back. Strange and lingering mid-summer respiratory affliction here. Not business as usual. Feel better and able to enjoy one less thing for a while.

  15. May your move from malady to melody be at healthy snail's pace, dear Ant. We will be anticipating your return.
    L, C ; )

  16. I know I saw it.. wouldn't mind picking it up somewhere:)

  17. Hey! Get back here!!

    OK. Well, maybe a wee nap and some restorative beverages. But then, really...


  18. Hi Ant - 'tis me again.
    You probably already know this, but Maru has a page on wikipedia? Surely the first contemporary cat to have one? Hope you're feeling better. . .

  19. You'll be missed, but you gotta do what ya gotta do (as the saying goes). See you when you get back.

  20. The meaning of life, the universe and everything???! I can't wait for your return, Antares. (I've been anemic myself.)
    Be well.
    I love that Maru. ;)

  21. Enjoy your nap, I'll see you in your dream. ;D

  22. @dbs, thank you, my friend. Means a lot.
    @Robert, maybe it's time for a blogging break?
    @Laoch, yes, but for a moment I remembered the question.
    @KevD, lol. You might be on to something; it could be a niche blog.
    @Pencilgirl, thank you for the award and the well wishes. Appreciate it.
    @Marylinn, thank you. Sorry to hear that and hope you feel better soon.
    I think we live in a time of business unusual.
    @Claire, thank you for the kind wishes. Difficult to stay away from this community.:)
    I did not know the round one had his own page, much deserved for our box loving cat.
    @Sprite, did you get it?
    Thank you again, feeling better, must be all that positive energy.;)
    @Pearl, alright, alright, I'm awake....just 5 more minutes....
    @Paul, thanks man, I'll have to catch up on your story, but it may take awhile. Keep writing.
    @Jayne, thank you. Time-restriction seems to be going around.
    One loves the round one.
    @Emoticon, sleep is good.
