Stories of Victorian Webs

A short story - shelved - for over a year. It was a story barely alive. Bloggie friends, we can rebuilt. We have the technology. It will be better than before. Better… stronger… more readable!

With sincerest apologies to the Six Million Dollar Man. LOL!

Happy Victoria Day to all my Canadian bloggie friends!

Here is a hanging basket of mystery flowers especially for you!


Please be so kind as to ignore the cobwebs that seemed to have sprang up overnight in the background!

Charlie says: I am not amused.


Pic of Charlie taken yesterday! Happy dayz!

Stephen Tremp said...

Charlie tooks like one tough audience. But then again, he's a cat. Maybe if we come bearing gifts.

Talli Roland said...

Yay for rebuilding! I'm sure your story will be happy for its new life.

Hi to Charlie! Hope you both had a good weekend.

Marg said...

We wish the canadians a nice holiday too. I sure don't know what those flowers are. That is kind of fun to have mystery flowers although a lot of mine are mysteries too Hope you have a great week.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Charlie's off spider duty this week, huh?

Susan Fields said...

Don't you just hate those overnight spider webs? I seem to have them all over the place. :)

Jemi Fraser said...

Yay for Victoria Day & thanks for the flowers :)

You CAN rebuild it! Have fun :)

notesfromnadir said...

What cobwebs? All I see is a pretty hanging basket of flowers.

Charlie looks contemplative! :)

Katie Anderson said...

Charlie is such a cutie! Though he really doesn't look amused...

Hart Johnson said...

It can INDEED be rebuilt! Hope you are happy with the end result! And you have such lovely flowers. You really should come make something of my yard, as I am very bad at it.

Sometimes shelving a story will help your mind work in the background and revive it on a future date. Your flowers are very pretty! It has been raining so much that I haven't been able to plant anything as yet I better begin soon or my veggies won't grow!

Charlie looks like I do these days with one eye open ..lol. My cornea is still taking time to heal. It is so uncomfortable.

Lydia K said...

Charlie is not amused at all. What's he got to be so miffed about? Catnip out of season, or what?

KarenMcG said...

Ahh, Charlie. It looks like you're about ready to go to sleep sitting up.

Those flowers are very pretty. And cob webs? They just add to the texture of the photo.

soggibottom said...

The Teacher's Pets said...

Charlie has the look of bewilderment and disgust in my opinion! I think he has the greatest expressions!

Tracy said...

Oh Charlie, could you please give us a little smile?
I think your mom deserves a little gratitude from you, don't you think?

Clarissa Draper said...

Love the flowers! And yes I agree, we can go back to our old stories and make them better.

Elizabeth Mueller said...

Love the basket! And Charlie? He's just too adorable for his own good! ;0)

Very pretty flowers!

Ellie Garratt said...

I thought it was Charlie's job to swish the cobwebs away with his tale?

Yay for story re-building!

LTM said...

Charlie's giving us a wink!!! :D And ugh. Cobwebs. Le sigh. My oldest used to run around and point them out to guests when she was little... Thanks, honey! LOL! ;p xoxo <3

Simon Kewin said...

Yay for you and you're rebuilt story! Best of luck with it.

Patsy said...

That's a prtetty hanging basket. I can see some verbena and a bidens ... the others are hard to make out.

Claudia Del Balso said...

Hi Jennifer,
thanks for the lovely flowers. I don't think Canadians take this holiday seriously (especially in the province of Quebec, LOL). I didn't do anything. I pretty much napped with my cats all day long. I'm still jetlagged ;)
Cute pic of Charlie as always.

The Golden Eagle said...

Beautiful flowers! :)

Theresa Milstein said...

Beautiful picture of Charlie!

May is the month to dust off an old story and breathe life into it. You're participating without even knowing it!

Thank you-now if I could just get my boss to recognize it in the US-oh wait I am the boss.
