It Takes a Village

Oh, hai. Can you believe it’s been 30 days already? Little c™ and I have enjoyed NaBloPoMo this year.

We’ve shared our penchant for Formula 1 racing, tuna, good stories, and binkies. Little c™ learned about our magic closet and how to construct a decent knock knock joke. We also learned to embrace our differences and to honor who we each are in the process while listening to good music and swapping stories with friends.

All in all a really great month.

Today’s writing prompt reads, “What’s the longest stretch you’ve ever pulled off of posting daily to your blog? What did you learn about blogging through that achievement, and what made you break the streak?”

I think 30 consecutive days is the longest I’ve blogged. Mom says she blogged every day for an entire year once and that it was simultaneously challenging and rewarding. She says once or twice a week is probably good for us, though, and I’d have to agree. It’s nice to have some days off in between. But what we learned during this month is that blogging can be a communal experience. It doesn’t have to be just one person, or cat, sharing their thoughts. We’ve enjoyed working with all of our guest bloggers this month and even meeting some new bloggers along the way.

We hope you’ve enjoyed our 30-day blog fest. We’re going to sign off now. In gratitude for all of you. It takes a village to blog, and we’re proud to be part of yours.

Until next time…

Your honored hosts.

Your devoted hosts, J.D. and little c™


Little c™’s Big Question

Oh, hai. I hope your week is going well.

Little c™ and I were talking last night about mom’s bedroom closet. Little c™ wanted to know why mom always kept it closed.


I told him I didn’t know, but sometimes I peeked in when mom was putting clothes away, and it was OK as far as closets went, but the linen closet is really where it’s at, as far as proper lounging goes.

I thought that was a pretty good explanation, but this morning he asked me again while we were sun puddling.

c™ wants what he wants.

c™ was pretty passionate about his cause.

So I relayed c™’s concerns on to mom while she was having her morning tea.

I figured if she was reading this, she might be open to letting c™ explore the closet.

Mom said this would probably be a good time to share today’s writing prompt. It says, “You’ve been given a key that can open one building, room, locker, or box to which you don’t normally have access. How do you use it, and why?”

In view of today’s writing prompt and c™’s big question, mom said she could grant c™ access to the magic closet just for today to help him understand why she usually keeps it closed.

This is what he found when he ran inside and mom shut the door behind him.

I know this, because he told me after he came out, and I noticed he was walking funny.

The carpet's right here, right?

That was a lot of Gary Wright. Whoa. Is this carpet?

Little c™ says he now understands why the back closet is usually closed and why a little Gary Wright goes a long way.

I think it will probably be awhile before c™ asks another big question like that.

Travel responsibly, peeps.
