 Saturday Night Post, Vol. 3, #22 - Please Pardon My Absence

It's been a long six weeks or so.  Aside from dealing with my bereavement I also had to contend with a urinary condition.  I spent the better part of last week at the local hospital until they could control the bleeding.

In any event I am home on a Saturday night with three cats and a goal to start blogging again.  This will be my first time to write, edit and publish without Warrior Queen serving as Senior Editor.   I am keeping it short and simple for my first solo endeavor.

Tonight I am thinking about reading passages from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy while nursing a gin and blue curacao. 

I have no doubts that Mrs. Eddy would not approve.  I am very sure the Mistress will venture some thoughts on mixing liquor with dogmatic ideology.  Warrior Queen would certainly put her nose up at the thought that I am drinking "her" gin without saying, "May I?"


(Thank you for reading and cheers!)

Nice to see you back. I imagine every day is a new day and not quite what you expect.
I imagine AM might share the gin, though perhaps not the Scripture??
And Maddie would just be thrilled there's gin.

Very pleased to see your return even if it's in personal life-impoverished circs. I won't be alone in having thought about you a lot. Looking forward to occasional posts from you when you're in the mood. Best wishes.

Have thought you both often in these past weeks. Welcome back. While I still take time for Dogma - daily walks and pets and meals - I am currently much too preoccupied with Catma - 4 kittens and a Mama Catma, plus the regular 4. As far as Mary Baker Eddy goes? I enjoy her vegan pot pies very much - though they don't serve them in her restaurants, which is a shame. Did I get that right? Kizzes.

Glad you're feeling better from that infection and intend to return to blogging. Enjoy that gin!

Welcome back, Sir, your voice has been missed. Oh, and somebody has to drink the gin.

"I would no more quarrel with a man because of his choice of liquor than I would because of his art."

Ok. I might have adjusted the quote.

Happy Fourth! I will call you soon to talk...been hectic and hate to call you too late. Now drink the gin and listen to ABBA!

I came back to double check if Blogger ate my comment again. The answer looks to be yes
I hope this one sticks.
I too am pleased as Punch to see you back in the saddle as it were.
As for Mrs. Eddy - I keep handy a copy of the Scientific Statement of Being.which is the panacea of all ills when gin and blue doesn't work.

It is gear to hear from you. Do take care of yourself. Sounds like rather deep reading, gin is very much in order. I have to think, Anne Marie wouldn't want good gin to go to waste, and sitting in the bottle it is doing no good.

Hi Bob. Yes, AM would share the gin, and thumb her nose at the Scripture.

Thank you, Raybeard, for your thoughts. I need to get back on schedule with my blogging. Keep checking back.

Hi Upton. I don't know that Mrs. Eddy ever made pot pies, but I will research this further.

Hi Debra. The infection is gone (if it ever was here), but now my bigger challenge remains in front of me.

Thank you Jimmy for your thoughts. I'm happy to be back.

Hi Dave R. I may let the Mistress have the gin. I'm more a fan of the demon rum.

I am looking forward to our phone conversation soon, Mistress.

Hi Spo! I used to know the Scientific Statement of Being by heart. I will need to reacquaint myself with it. As for the gin, "Cheers!"

Hi Travel. I need to find a suitable recipe which I can use with the gin and still satisfy my sweet tooth palate!

Nice to hear from you again. You have been in my thoughts while you've been away. Sorry about the health issues. I know all too well the inconvenience of such issues. I think AM would be more horrified at you wasting the gin than drinking it. I look forward to hearing more from you. Be well, my friend.

Glad you're back!
Been meaning to drop by and saw your update in Upton's blog. And you know Anne Marie would not be happy if that Gin goes to waste!
