The Reformation of Wolfshausen
To hear this week's story, listen for the cock to crow.
Or, you can read this episode on the way to the children's crusade.
Guess what son? My eyes are sooooooo good! I can read that.
I forgive you.
Excellent, excellent! worth waiting for. (nevermind whatever Thesis it was....)
Good read this weekend, even though it was late. I prefer the lateness as it coincides with my timeline rather nicely.
I tried to leave a comment on Olivia Cooper's blog Wonderland or Not but my ISP is no longer welcome there. I don't know why she hates me so much. I would let her comment on my blog (and Pia Savage too!)
Anyhoo, here is the comment I would have left if Olivia Cooper would have let me:
"Wow, g. Are you saying people actually live in Delaware? I thought it was just the name of a place where most corporations are incorporated."
I know why Olivia doesn't like me! On her post Fond (Doggoned) Ambition I wrote:
"Red is the new Black. Less is always More. Sir Thomas More [a.k.a. also Saint Thomas More] was an English lawyer, social philosopher, author, statesman and noted Renaissance humanist. Don’t tell me neither of you brilliant women knew that!" (I replied to Coop's reply to Pia Savage).
Olivia responded ...
"Thanks for that, I’ll keep that in mind when writing a post about social philosophers who really pissed off Henry VIII." For now I am trying to keep to the subject matter. I prefer commenters stay on topic. I punish them severely when they stray.
Thank you Olivia. This comment rant is helping me recover from my SEVERE wounds. With your permission may I now retire for the evening?
Thanks, TLP. I'm slow and getting slower while you are getting quicker and quicker. Suddenly, I think two vampires stalk this site.
See, Cooper, if I'd known that I could have left a note "Today's post will be late to accommodate Cooper's timeline nicely." I'd even feel good about that.
Karen, that's a fine and funny comment you'd have left, although you might consider the unprovoked insults you've sometimes spit out at people, including her, as another possible explanation. Could be a bug in the system, too, of course.
