Note to Readers: Everyone needs a day off now and then


note to readers smaller


Dear Everyone Reading This,

Since Paddy's passing, Lucian and I have worked day and night to keep The Political Carnival going. We've invited a number of very generous, very talented guest bloggers in to help fill the painful void, we've been working like crazy behind the scenes to introduce a new format (while still keeping the old one, so no worries, longtime readers!), and we've been doing all of this while experiencing a roller coaster of emotions.

Today, we're taking the day off. Lucian has actual work to do, and I managed to screw up my neck again. Trying to relax newly pulled neck muscles that are pressing on 3 slipped discs while my kitchen and front yard are simultaneously being demolished and renovated is nearly impossible. So instead of grabbing the nearest bottle of wine (which I'll get to later, trust me), I'm going to back off for the day.

Again, we apologize for the light posting, but our blogging schedule will have to be like this for several weeks.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.



we love you

  • That's good to know! : ) Thank you Kevin!

  • Thanks! It's better today, so far. : )

  • Vino!

  • No no no, thankEEE Memerz!

  • KatieAnnieOakley

    Appreciate the heads up, but no explanations are due. Take your day off, get refreshed, and we'll see you later! As usual, you've earned a day off - or twenty.

    You deserve a break. We'll be here. Drink wine. Bourbon a good choice as well...;)

    Sorry to hear about your neck, Laffy. Take care.

  • Kevin P

    Take your time to heal/recharge... we're not going anywhere!

  • Ramona, thank you! You are a DOLL! I will bookmark your page. xo

  • <3 Sher! xoxoxox

  • Sorry to hear this, Laffy, but I totally understand. if you want some content and you're looking for something some time, feel free to grab whatever you want from my page. I put a new post up today that is crying to be read. Sometimes I have to write those things while gritting my teeth and trying not to rip my hair out. (Hard to type that way but it has to be done.) Grrrr.

  • Gentle hugz from Vermont you two rockstars, and kudos for healthy choices!! Breathe … Self care is ridiculously hard for passionate liberals. [ That G.D. Conscience ;-} ]

  • Thanks! But since I'm clearly mentally ill, I doubt I can contribute to anyone's mental health. 😉

  • californiaoak

    Best to you. Keep yourself healthy so you can contribute to our collective mental health.

  • Thanks Cheerio! You are so right.

  • cheeriogirl

    Seconded. Take care of yourself Laffy. Grieving and remodeling at the same time is too much to ask of anyone. Hope your neck issues resolve soon.

  • I sure does, Memo, thankee!

  • Get some rest, Memo. You deserve it.
