we’re back :)

& We missed you.

my dearest tiger lamb monkey baby, Odysseus, says hi!

Now all we have to figure out is how to work with the redesign that wordpress has thrown at us so our return to blogging is less painful in the future. Today, we couldn’t reply to waiting comments without signing in multiple times. On the plus side, I was able to follow my own blog since WordPress didn’t recognize us as ourselves. Bonus!!

Then we had trouble uploading Odie’s newest pic that we took this morning.  He’s missed you guys too, and wanted to say hi. Plus, he loves photo shoots with is Momma because he gets lots of treats, grooming and attention. Yayyy. Once we got his pic uploaded, we couldn’t figure out how to write in these paragraphs (you’re seeing now) above and below Odie’s portrait. So he turned on his side and went to sleep, while assuring me that, “Momma could do it on her own.” I did. Odie’s still sleeping, btw.

Good news: we finally got there/here and are happy to be sharing with you.

Boy, have we missed you all!

So we have to ask:

Is anyone else feeling like the new user interface is harder to use??

Please share you thoughts.

** we promise to post more soon.

Hugs and love, always…

O and OM.

but before we officially sign off for the evening, did i mention that i got super long nails done/glued on at the salon as a kind of spring time awakening thing. well they are hard as hell to type in. i wonder how odie does it? :) As his faithful owner and official “keeper of the well trimmed claw” ( i dutifully clip his lil demon claws every couple of week – i would never declaw a cat!) i must say that he really owes me one for keeping his nails at a nice length for the keyboard. if it weren’t for me how would he be able to do the copy editing and the spellchecking.

oh thats right…

hugs again,

o and om

 

amazing nature landscapes: on the horizon

dearest odyssians,

hello all. heres a nice ocean pic. looks like its pretty warm out there in this photo. a lot warmer than o and om are here in chi town. right now its a balmy negative 15. that aint a typo. odie thinks this weather is worth drinking a gallon of rum over.and blacking out for 4 weeks. and waking up when it gets above freezing. like the end of april.  i agree. but weve abstained from making a pirates night of it all for reasons that.. actually for no particular reason whatsoever. and were not even sure why that is. we could have really blown a rum soaked hole right through the middle of this deep freeze depression the midwest has succumbed to- the depression thats taken us right along with it. but alas. we’ve remained head squarely on shoulders. and aren’t faring too badly for it.

 if you’re in the upper part of the lower  48  we hope you are enjoying the polar vortex with us and  that all this chilled joy its bringing you breathless memories that you haven’t you’ll never forget – if you’ve refused to drink them into oblivion. you’ll certainly have them for the next 60 years. i think thats a real possibility considering how truly cold and snowy its been.

have a great one.

hugs,

o and om
