I Love it!
I never imagined that ghostwriting, writing for someone who is the named author, might be part of my future. Well guess what showed up the other day…? I’ve been hired to write someone’s memoir! Admittedly, I was very surprised by the idea at first. This is a big deal! It’s a huge project. In celebration I offer an awesome picture (look at his little toes!) and quote. Enjoy!
Panorama of the Southern Sky ~ The Milky Way arches across this 360-degree panorama of the night sky above the Paranal platform, home of ESO’s Very Large Telescope. The Moon is just rising and the zodiacal light shines above it, while the Milky Way stretches across the sky opposite the observatory. To the right in the image and below the arc of the Milky Way, two of our galactic neighbours, the Small and Large Magellanic Clouds, can be seen. The open telescope domes of the world’s most advanced ground-based astronomical observatory are all visible in the image: the four smaller 1.8-metre Auxiliary Telescopes that can be used together in the interferometric mode, and the four giant 8.2-metre Unit Telescopes. The image was made from 37 individual frames with a total exposure time of about 30 minutes, taken in the early morning hours. ~ Wikipedia. Full resolution is 15,204 x 4,620. Check out the full resolution pic on Wikipedia – the size here doesn’t do it justice.

Just LOOK at what I’ve gone and done! I’ve posted my blog on Amazon Blogs – Who knew it existed? You can get a subscription to it! Can you even stand it? How cool is that?
Near the kitchen sink a caterpillar named Caterpillar managed her way over a somewhat withered and neglected piece of lettuce missed by the sponge during a hurried cleaning and began nibbling on it contentedly. Lost in contemplation she failed to notice a cat named Cat with flickering tail watching her as he sat a mere foot away on a kitchen stool. Now up until this moment it had always been the practice of Cat to act impulsively with regard to catching his snacks, but something about Caterpillar caused him to introspect as he continued to watch her eat. She appeared to be in a most irrationally intoxicated state as though nothing were more important than her moment with the lettuce. This aroused in him a feeling of great perplexity – for he’d never watched a life form eat with such focus.
“Pardon me Miss Caterpillar, I don’t wish to interrupt your lunch, but I’ve been watching you eat for a stretch now and you appear to be most lost in the moment with your snack. Why are you so captivated with your food?”
Looking up and with a fragment of lettuce hanging from the corner of her tiny mouth she continued to chew and answered simply, “Because I have faith in the lettuce.”
Cat narrowed his eyes and two of his whiskers twitched. He pondered for a moment and finally said, “Faith in the lettuce?! Outrageous! I have never heard of anything more absurd. Explain yourself at once!”
Caterpillar detected a sense of irritation and urgency in his voice. She would have to set aside her sustenance for, hopefully, not too long as Cat clearly had no intention of allowing her to continue to eat in peace. She eyed her remaining lettuce and not before an uncomfortable moment of longing did she turn her full attention toward Cat.

I’m able to see Google search results that bring people to my blog. Here’s one from today – “how can i prevent my pants from bagging out at the butt area?”
If you Google it – my blog comes up right between two links: “I like the smell of my own farts. Is that normal?” and “Ask PoopReport: My Ass Stinks! PoopReport.com”
That cracks me UP! I don’t know if someone really wanted their question answered or if they were searching for my old blog post titled My Pants Are Slipping Off My Butt.
Nice to know where Google places my post. I’ve deleted all of my excerpts because now my entire story is available.
