Leapin’ Lizards!

As Little Orphan Annie said in the comic strip by the same name, Leapin’ Lizards! It’s Leap Year. She always said she looked younger than her years because she was born on February 29 and only aged one year in appearance for every year that passed. Would that we could have some of that magic juice, right? Of course, we age faster since leap day always falls in the same year as a presidential election and yippy skippy, we get another day to listen to all that stuff! That’s enough to age anyone.

I, for one, need more than one extra day this year to get everything on my to-do list under control. Where do I sign up for more days, less political talk? What’s that you say? Pipe dream? Yeah, well, there is that.

Happy Leap Day tomorrow!

    You know, I always liked Leap Year until you reminded me it’s always election year. Ugh! Hubby and I are spending Leap Day at the ocean (we’re here for a couple days) and I am enjoying watching the white caps hit the breakwater. There’s a storm coming in today and I intend to spend a good part of mine enjoying watching it roll in (from safe inside our room). Then we’ll take our “extra” day tomorrow for more sight-seeing and the short (2 hour) trip home.

    It’s not all play and no work, though. I’m editing for a while this morning. I wish I could help you with your to-do list. 🙂


    • Sounds like a fun way to spend leap day, Laurie. At least you aren’t near a tv and radio and subject to those ads and junk! 😛 Have a great time.

      As to my to-do list, it’s enough that you’re there with me in spirit and cheering me on until March 18- then, things will ease off. I DID just turn in the final version with three tweaks of The Gambler, so that’s off the plate!

    I was never a big fan of Annie. But one of the things which really bothered me was that neither she nor her dog had any eyeballs. You have to figure the artist had some very specific reason for this. But why?
    Eyes say so much about a person. What does it say (about someone) if they have no orbs in their eye sockets?

    I’m with Jeff on the Little Orphan Annie creepy-eye thing. Glad to know I’m not the only one who felt that way. And by golly, I am sending you a high five for railing against that extra day of political nonsense.
