Mousie’s Gone Martian!

The Gig Is Up…They Got ME!
Gosh, can’t a mouse have a little peace and vacation time without the paparazzo? 
So, there you have it kids, that’s why you haven’t seen me in a while….
Hope this finds you all well…I have been away and thus unable to keep regular in here…but I hope you haven’t given up on us…we will be back as soon as the holidays pass, maybe sooner. Take care, and thanks for stopping in to see what we are up to.

I have alluded, in comments, that the Mouse is on a restricted diet. Let’s face it, we all have trouble beating back temptation when it comes to eating all the goodies of holiday time. But, folks, the Mouse had no shame. He took indulging to an all-time high. Therefore he has been whining a bit about how ‘deprived’ his life is lately. Poor little fuzzy, obese mouse.

(Getting out the tiny violin, now).

A violin

The final straw came when he appealed to our cherished friend and Mousie’s biggest fan, Lord David over at https://barsetshirediaries.wordpress.com/ to take him in because I wasn’t spoiling him enough…then,  to really get my dander up, Mousie decided he would have the audacity to re-blog the cute clip he found at another blog, “Sleep Tight, Enoki.”

ENOUGH! Scram!

He’s been pretty lazy lately anyway. So I said he could just go if he thought he needed to act like that.

He knows he’s ultra-spoiled here. I am guilty of allowing him to have extra snacks, when I know it really isn’t good for him. I am only looking after him for his own good; he obviously needs supervision.  But, he’s trying to make me  look like the Monster of Monsters and I had to put my foot down.

So…off he goes. To Wales. In the United Kingdom.

Distance is 8620 kilometers or 5356 miles or 4654 nautical miles…

Mind you, we live in Southern California. Hmmm. Methinks he won’t quite make his destination.

2014 In Review — Special Thanks To You

To Our Devoted Followers and Accidental Tourists,

Loyal  Friends and Family:

Our existence would cease here, were it not for your solid support and encouragement…

We owe what we are here…TO YOU. And so, we want you to know how very much that means to us and the heartfelt

affection and gratitude we hold for each of you…Thank you Ever So Much. We are very happy to get 2014 behind us…as many of you know,

we have had an extraordinarily hard year, as we have had to bid farewell to at least 10 of our dearest family and friends.  It seemed like a mass exodus had launched in

a very short period…6 or more just from the end of May to the end of July…it made for a time of low creativity and lots of days between posts.

We only averaged 2.4 posts a week, which is abysmal, especially since most of you are prolific with your own blogs, rain or shine, even in your own adversities.

If YOU can do it, then so can we. We are going to be more focused in 2015, more engaged, and we sincerely hope

to catch up on reading the huge volume of your uniquely interesting posts, giving you back some of the support you were so gracious to give to us.

So, thank you, again… we are humbled and honored to be able to know such talented and fascinating people; to have your friendship.

We want to Especially Thank our Faithful (visits and comments on nearly EVERY post),

Encouraging and Engaged Fans —if not, the most luxuriously whiskered, as in David’s case — 😛

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,700 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.
