The Story Will Continue ...

...But not today.

Too many days of getting up early, too many days left to retirement, too many days of me trying to do too much.

So, no fiction today. Just the hard, honest truth that I'm really, really tired. Brain is fried, need to relax.

So ...

Es tut mir Leid ...

Je suis désolé ...

Ek is jammer ...

Мне жаль ...

мені шкода ...

Ngiyaxolisa ...


Sorry ...

Bis überMorgen!


  1. Put the feet up Sarge, hang up the "Gone Fishing" sign, aaaaaand rest....relax....goof off.......... :)

  2. But, But, But, MY Free Ice-cream!!!

    LOL, I'm happy you're going to honor your muse and take a break.

    scuff, sniff...

    "I've got no deeds to do, no promises to keep, I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep...."

    1. If it's any consolation, I do feel bad about this.

      No, really. 😁

  3. Rest up, Sarge. Creating good writing is hard work!

    Gomen Nasai, the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIZCY9f8TYQ

  4. HEY! MAYBE you should take a break! I'm pretty old, I know stuff...you can trust me on this.

  5. Okay, it took me about five minutes staring at the picture of a mud hut with two windows admitting light on some sort of thing being roasted on a spit. Science fiction, Star Wars or something.
    Then I read the post and figured it out- candle burning at both ends.....

    Your work is done for today. You befuddled me.

  6. to make you feel even worse!
    you're in the garage/woodshop looking around for a couple of 2x4s, when the muse holds up some 2x8s and says,"Euripides."

  7. It was emphasized to me over the past few days that I don’t have to apologize when I need rest.
    The mind draws on the body’s resourses.
    We can trudge along without thought for eternity.
    As soon as we begin to think about what we’re doing, we tire more easily.
    If we could write as fast as our mind works…

    1. Re: "If we could write as fast as our mind works…"

      That would be awesome, but I fear there would be tons of typos!

  8. Chill, dude! We'll be here when you are renewed! 😴😴😴

  9. What are you apologizing for? That we don't get free entertainment? It's all good. It's your place, and you reserve the right to refuse service (blog posts) to anyone! Finally caught up by the way. Sooo good.

    1. Monday was a bear I don't normally get that tired.

      Glad you're liking the story!

    Sarge - you do you. As your needs warrant. That's all we can ask of ourselves.

    1. But I do like providing free internet ice cream. It's all virtual anyway. 😁


Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
Can't be nice, go somewhere else...
