I’m still working on the history book and my deadline keeps getting closer and closer. Things keep interfering with my plan, like getting the flu a couple of weeks ago. Then my writing partner got sick last week and was still feeling poorly early this week. More delays. UGH! But you know what? The world will not end if the book is a few days late. Of course, my editor might not feel that way, so I hope she does not read this.
Anyway, I thought I would share some levity from the funny papers. Enjoy….
Last week’s Blondie strip was amusing. Blondie and Dagwood are in bed and he has his iPad open. He says, “I’m posting that it’s time for me to turn in.”
Blondie says, “I think you’re getting addicted to posting too many trivial things on your Facebook page.”
In the next frame Dagwood says, “Honey, please. I can quit posting any time I want to.”
To which she responds, “I don’t know, it seems like you’re getting carried away.”
Dagwood’s last Facebook post, “Get this – Blondie thinks I post way too much trivial stuff on my Facebook page.”

A good one from Dilbert. Dogbert is sharing news with Dilbert. “I got a job as a news manufacturer for an online media company. I quote people out of contect, add misleading headlines, and tie it all up with a snarky bow.”
Dilbert says, “I thought the news occurred naturally.”
Dogbert comes up with a snarky headline, “‘Engineer thinks news is magic.'”

Lessons From Literature:
Here’s another one from A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines. “A hero is someone who does something for other people. He does something that other men don’t and can’t do. He is different from other men. He is above other men.”
I’m pretty sure Mr. Gaines meant the designation for someone other that a sports figure.What do you think?
