Miss Mousie Sez….

OK, so that wasn’t a very long hiatus, was it?

Miss Mousie puts her banjo aside & fixes me with a school marm’s gaze over her wire-rimmed glasses—the fact that these are more than a trifle askew doesn’t seem to phase her a bit.  “If you are always telling people you are going on a hiatus, & then popping up again the next day, they simply won’t believe you when you really do go on a hiatus.”

I acknowledge that Miss Mousie is right in this instance.  Indeed, she almost always is.  But L.E. Leone emailed me a new poem right on the verge of taking flight from Baghdad by the Bay to NoLa in search of true love & the perfect po’ boy, & given how amazing it is that Robert Frost’s Banjo even crossed her mind under such circumstances, you can bet her poem will be posting bright & early tomorrow morning!

There’ll be a post on Wednesday, too, but you knew that.  I don’t have any specific plans between then & Sunday, but once you’ve posted one post while on hiatus (& as Miss Mousie again correctly points out, this will end up being two, strictly speaking), there’s no telling what will happen.

I suspect we haven’t seen the last of Miss Mousie.
