  1. Thanks for sharing this, Linda! Ned always makes me laugh until I spray Earl Grey all over my keyboard. I love it when he has time to drop by and share with us, and when he’s otherwise occupied, I’m happy to have others share his posts here, too. He’s a treasure!

    • And btw, in addition to the sense of humor liberally sprinkled through this particular post, I love the wisdom contained therein. I’m printing it out, in case I forget these basic writing survival skills.

      • You are ALWAYS welcome here, Ned, on your own, or with a little help from others. Which reminds me, I need to reblog your next voting announcement, so folks here can take part in the process. I don’t know why I haven’t done that yet, sorry!!! Blame it on being really, really swamped, even though that’s a lousy excuse. It’s the only one I have, so I hope you’ll accept it. And I’ll do better with the next vote, I promise!
