I knew that blog title would get your attention. You’re just as twisted and sick as I am, aren’t you? That’s why we’re friends. 😊 But before you get to thinking I had a tryst with a waitress named Flo in some greasy spoon cafe, let me explain.

The previous owners of our house are hunters, and while I don’t hunt anymore, I do enjoy venison. So Justin left me several packs of meat, including some sausage that Miss Terry just got around to thawing out yesterday. She used it to make delicious biscuits and sausage gravy for dinner. And trust me, no greasy spoon cafe ever put out the kind of food that Terry does. And no waitress named Flo or anything else could hold a candle to her, either.

Okay, now you know where part of the blog title came from, and it wasn’t a waitress named Flo. But it was a cute little gal who inflicted these on me yesterday. After spending much of the afternoon writing, I took a break, and Alli and I were wrestling around on the floor, playing tug of war with one of her toys. In the process, she managed to nip her toy, pinching me on the arm a couple of times. It wasn’t intentional, just the cost of roughhousing with an animal with a mouthful of teeth that would put a jackal to shame.

So there you have it. My life is not nearly as tawdry as you thought it was, or maybe I hoped it was, but I’m not telling! Either way, at least I eat well. 😊

Be sure to enter our latest Free Drawing. This week’s prize is an audiobook of Hands of Onyx, book 2 in the Sav’ine series by Stacy Bender. It’s a story about cybernetic soldiers escorting a long haul space freighter to the outer rim planets, dealing with saboteurs who are trying to stop them and a crew that includes a half-blind medic, an explosives expert who is a sociopath, and an interrogator suffering from dementia. What could possibly go wrong?

To enter, click on this Free Drawing link or the tab at the top of this page and enter your name (first and last) in the comments section at the bottom of that page (not this one). Only one entry per person per drawing please, and you must enter with your real name. To prevent spam or multiple entries, the names of cartoon or movie characters are not allowed. The winner will be drawn Sunday evening. Note: Due to the high shipping cost of printed books and Amazon restrictions on e-books and audiobooks to foreign countries, only entries with US addresses and e-mail addresses are allowed. After 90 days, unclaimed prizes revert back to the drawing pool for a future contest.

And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.

Thought For The Day Facebook is a lot like jail. You sit around wasting time writing on the walls and get poked by people you don’t know
