As you’re both obviously very short of time, perhaps you should look into get a "second mate” - A matching Grant.

You should teach Grant how to cook! (Maybe he will "grant" you that one request.)

Don't count on too much participation from me this week. I'll try, but in the first place I had a little surgery this week—and another unrelated procedure earlier in the week—and I'm still recuperative. In the second place I have a client who comes over every Saturday morning for a work session. He's running late but should be here any minute. When he leaves I'll surely need a nap. And then I have a hairdresser appointment. I'm not yet privileged to drive post-op, but Grant will drive me. We have to do two errands after that, and when we get home I'll surely collapse. When I get up, I'll have to make dinner. Last night we called for pizza bcs I wasn't up to cooking, but we can't afford to do that again. And Grant can't cook. So I HAVE to make dinner.  But I'll likely be ready for bed after dinner. So when do I work on the riddle???


Make it a splendiferous day!

Subject: [puny] RR #954 (Giving notice)


For reasons even I can’t fully understand, I’ve actually prepared and will present my Rogue on Saturday this weekend. In fact, this is your 45minute warning. You may expect to see RR #954 “GIVEN NOTICE” in your mailboxes at 10am central. This will be a fairly standard set of 12 simple fill-in-the-blank riddles designed specifically to appeal to those who merely shrug when they see limericks or other obtusely convoluted games.


Even if you have no intention of claiming, I do hope you’ll be willing to offer some response to this creative output. We all thrive on feedback.
