NOTA day

Saying for the day:-Some days are more important than others and this is not one of those days.

Today is a nota day. They come every once in a while, usually sandwiched between two big holidays. You know…

Nota day to return things – we did that already.

Nota day for leftovers– we ate the last of them yesterday.

Nota day for big parties– those are held tomorrow night.

Nota day for cleaning– we are all cleaned out.

Nota day for visiting– who has the energy left?

Nota day for News Years resolutions– Monday we make and break those.

Nota day for writing great blogs-if there is such a day.

Nota day for blog visiting-most people aren’t writing.

I guess its just a nota day.
So I’ll spend it with my grandsons.
Perhaps we’ll go to a movie.

What have you planned for your nota day?

@@@@
News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my garage where the trains still run and things are very quite for the moment.– Mrs. Smythe had a big welcome home party run by her neighbors. They put a big sign across the garage door. Nobody noticed until the celebration was almost over that they spelled welcome wrong. The Smythe’s were welomed home. But nobody really cared as there was plenty of good food and lots of Hawaii stories to be told. People really did miss the Smythes. Mrs. Smythe was so overwhelmed that she even started to cry at one point in the party, when they gave her the welcome home gift. She said that Pigeon Falls people are the nicest people in the world.
Nancy, who helped plan the party said that Tommy made the sign and she thinks he misspelled welcome on purpose. Tommy says he would never do a thing like that but there was a big smile on his face when he said it.
Toivo Jupola, Eino’s brother, was the toastmaster at the party. He knows more jokes than anybody else in town. One never knew there were so many Hawaii jokes. The one about the guy that was going to Hawaii but ended up in Alaska was really, really funny.
Eino didn’t go to the party. He was home going over the video tapes from the break in. He is still trying to figure out how they got the hermit statue out of the basement without it showing on the tape. Tommy told him he has to face the possiblity that it walked out on its own but Eino isn’t accepting that. He says that statues don’t come to life and break doors. It just doesn’t happen. Then Tommy reminds him of what they saw at the end of the track.
Plans continue for the big New Year’s Eve party at the Fly Inn. It will be the biggest party in town. One has to wonder if our dragon won’t be tempted to make an appearance. Mrs. Trumble may very well be waiting with a loaded shotgun. She’ll get that dragon yet.

Link for today: Echoes in a Nomade's Head-:-Remember to leave the words Dr. John in the comments to get those hollow JCPOINTS. Check HERE for your points ( not yet updated)
I over slept this morning so this post is a little late. There will be no link tomorrow or Monday.
Took my grandkids to a movie about dragons. It was great fun . Then we went to Peter's for a short time. Now I need a breathing treatment.

1. Your definition of SPAM is incomplete. Spam is spam only if it is unsolicited. And if positive comments are unsolicited, then there's going to be no tomorrow (i've always wanted to say some shit like that)
2. I've often left comments similar to the one i left on your blog - but i don't just leave them on any blog. I read your post, but my comment was regarding your blog - as i felt you had put some effort into it (lots of effort in fact), unlike some spam blogs i've seen.
3. It makes my day when i recieve a positive comment about my blog. i recieve several, so i try to give something back to others by surfing the blogosphere and leaving similar comments.
4. Last but not the least, i DID mean what i said about your blog.


:)
By the way - this is also the reason why i leave lots of smilies in my comments :-D)

Dr. John, this is nota a day for me to do anything except have a shower, put on a pair of flannel jammies (too much information?) and curl up with one of my Christmas books. I'm glad to see other people are doing it as well. I always feel guilty when I have a "lazy" day.

Happy New Year to you and Betty,
Josie

I don't have time for a nota day! Too much to do. Too little time to do it in.

New medication for my High Blood Pressure kicking in - so I'm "NOTA" able to get away from the bathroom. I have to tinkle every other minute. But my BP is down to 129/94 and that's a good thing. The Doc wants to stick me with all kinds of things when it reads 180 something. Including sticking me in hospital. I'll take the bathroom scenery and bring my laptop in here to blog.

I think we all need more nota days. It's wonderful to have days that aren't full of have-to's, but rather, want-to's. Hope you enjoyed your nota day. I enjoyed mine !

Glad things seem back to normal in Pigeon Falls.

Have a wonderful New Years and hoping 2007 is good to you and Betty.
