Regular readers may recall that it is my birthday next week.
I am going away for a few days, to celebrate by visiting friends and relatives. Ollie will be coming too, so don’t worry about him.
As a result, I will not be online very much from Friday 13th until Tuesday the 17th.
Obviously, there will be no new episodes of the fiction serial during that time, or any other posts from me. I will also be unable to comment on your posts, or answer any on mine.
Once I get back on Tuesday, I will do my best to catch up.
But it is unlikely that I will be keeping up with any of your posts, so my apologies in advance.
I like to let you know, in case you think I have died! 🙂
Best wishes to everyone, Pete.
By Hook Or By Book ~ Book Reviews, News, and Other Stuff
Many of you in our close community will have noticed that the lovely Kim has been ‘missing’ from our blogs, and hers, for more than a week now.
Her blog is better known as ‘By Hook Or By Book’. For those of you who don’t know her, here is a link to that blog.
I was concerned, as it was not like her not to post, or to miss commenting on other blogs. Luckily, we have each other’s email addresses, so she was able to contact me.
I am pleased to report that she is fine! After a storm close to their Alabama home, Kim and Tom lost all Internet access, and she has only had occasional use of Tom’s phone for messages.
As soon as some parts have been replaced by the phone company, she will be be back online, and back to the blog.
Meanwhile, make sure you keep following her great blog. 🙂
For the benefit of everyone following the current serial, I just wanted to let you know that there will be no posts today. (Except this one of course)
The next episode of The River, and anything else that comes to mind, will follow soon.
Best wishes to you all, Pete.
Next Monday, we are having the painter back, to paint the living room. It should have been done in the summer, but other stuff got in the way.
This means clearing cupboards, shifting furniture, and some cleaning before he starts. All being well, he should be finished by next Thursday morning, ready for the new carpet to be put down soon after.
The only reason I mention this domestic drudgery is that I may not have the usual amount of time for my blogging routine.
So if I seem to have ignored your posts, forgot to comment on something, or missed thanking you for commenting on mine, that will be the reason.
The same applies to my current serial, Russian Sector. If the next episode is late, or doesn’t appear, don’t worry. It will follow on soon.
And if everything gets done on time in the house, you might not even notice much difference.
Best wishes to everyone as always, Pete.
I am just back from my trip away to Essex and Kent. Whilst away, I avoided emails and blog posts, and I didn’t even watch the News!
***To everyone who has sent me something for a Guest Post***
Thanks to you all. I have the emails, and will be dealing with them starting tomorrow.
You can expect to see your Guest Posts appearing from Monday.
***To everyone who sent me a postcard***
Many thanks for the lovely cards. They will be featuring on a blog post later next week.
***Bloggers I follow***
SORRY! I won’t have a chance to catch up on all the posts I missed. However, I will try to get around to answering your comments over the next two days.
Back to full service at beetleypete starting tomorrow. 🙂
Best wishes to everyone. Pete.
Just to let everyone know, I will be ‘off the blog’ for a few days.
So if you don’t see any comments from me, or get no replies to comments or emails, don’t worry.
I’m not dead… (Yet)
I will do my best to catch up when I can, but no doubt will miss a lot of your posts.
Meanwhile, I have posted a lot today, so you still have something to read. 🙂
Just to let everyone know, I will be away from the blog for a few days. I won’t be answering many comments, or publishing any posts over the weekend.
But it’s alright, I’m not dead! (Yet)
See you again on Sunday night, or maybe Monday.
Best wishes to all, Pete. 🙂
