There was a Plan, but then there was a Puddle

Yesterday I got up early and started charging around.  I had a Plan and I was gettin' things done.  But then suddenly there was a Puddle.  In a place that a Puddle could be, but not at the time a Puddle should be.  So with timing more of an issue than location, source became a serious concern.  Which dealt the final death blow to my Plan, the one that had nothing do with mysterious puddles, or plumbers, or cracked waste pipes, or stepping in sewage.  It was a good Plan though, and I'll miss it.

And I had a plan for my Q in the ABC-along.  It was also a very fine plan. Very unique and interesting.  So much so that I find myself unwilling to let go of it and scramble around for a substitute Q now that access to the original has been problematic.  Not impossible - just requiring a tad bit more stealthiness that I'd originally expected.  It should have been simple - just drive up, point, focus, press the button, and drive away.  But things have changed, a road was closed, and I'm not up to hiking in the heat, so at least for now - no Q for you!

There's no doubt in my mind what the source (little, old dog) might be when I see a puddle around here.. ::sigh::

Hope the puddle gets resolved quickly so you can get back to the Plan. Loved the "No Q for you."

You are on this month's magazine cover. Hope you get a chance to check it out. xxoo

I live in great fear of puddles. No good ever comes from puddling of any sort. Ever.

I can live without the Q for now. Take your time. I am the master of my own Q domain...
