I might not always post what I write, but I do my very best to be disciplined about writing a blog. I always have a couple of ideas rattling around in my brain and in my notebook about what I would like to write about.
Sometimes, like now, I sit on the couch, with my Otis snoring beside me and just type.
I woke up today at 3 …ante meridiem. (That is in the morning.) Waking up super early was bad enough, but the massive headache that woke me up was worse. I rarely get headaches and when I do, popping a couple of ibuprofen makes the headache go away.
That was not the case today, however. I have been taking ibuprofen all day, and while it has helped to make a dent in the headache, it hasn’t taken it away completely.
However, it is Blog Day and the show must go on so as not to dissapoint my thirty-six readers.
As Randy, Roxy, Otis and I dashed off for a quick trip to the cookie store, I thought of a few pictures that would fit into a ‘glow’ blog and shelved the one that I had planned.
Just so you know, the cookie store is actually the garbage dump. I call it the cookie store because there is a basket of dog treats in the office. The people who work there know Roxy and Otis and they make double sure that I don’t leave without grabbing cookies for them. So what really happens is that I pay five bucks for two medium size Milk Bones and get to drop our trash off for free.
During the day, I thought of a couple of more pictures for the post. So, after my dinner I sat down to plow through my pictures to find them. I found more ‘glow’ pictures than I ever thought possible.
I narrowed down the pictures, then started writing, then thought of yet another picture. I took it when we were in Vidalia Louisiana, at an RV park right on the Mississippi River. It is a shot taken at night, of a river boat, lights aglow, with the Natchez ~ Vidalia Bridge in the background.
It would have been perfect for this blog.
Would have are operative words because I cannot find the picture now. Despite a quick look through my pictures, then a couple more thorough searches, it was not to be found. I guess I dreamt that the Great McDaniel Adventure stopped there for a few days.
But as you can see, I found quite a few that are glow candidates.
I know what I will be doing tomorrow. I loathe losing a picture and fuss and fret over it like I have lost a friend. Tomorrow, I will be conducting a slow and methodical search for my river boat picture. Worst case scenario is that The Adventure will have to make a trip to Louisiana to recreate the picture.
