Here’s a funny thing…
Last night, as I perused the hectic week to come, I made a wish. I made a wish that instead of a frantic day running around my Monday would be spent quietly at home.
Guess what? Mother Nature answered my wish!
It’s 38 F outside. The snow’s melted. The resultant liquid is flowing gracefully over a thick layer of ice (formed sometime before Christmas) that coats all our roads and right now: South Central Alaska is a skating rink.
Voila, today is canceled.
My apologies to everyone. While I’m pleased to be sitting here doing nothing much, I did not intend to reach this bliss in the current fashion. To all those unable to stay home today – Godspeed.
Anyhow, this free day makes it possible for me to ask everyone a HUGE favor.
(Hey, I canceled today! That’s worth a favor, right?)

It’s relatively painless, I promise. All it takes is 2 clicks, one on the link below the other on the “thumbs up” at the bottom of that page.
Here’s the first one:
Once on the story page look for this:
And click again.
What do you say? If I get enough votes I just might win and winning is really fun.
But you know what else is fun? Bowling people over. It means so much to me that you read this blog. I’m positively giddy. But If you vote for my story I’ll be completely bowled over.
And bowling people over is fun. Really.

Hope you all have a stellar day .
