  1. Anemia, Lulu and Bubba are ready for Christmas! I am not. I procrastinate.

    As to your reaction seeing that mom & child, it’s understandable.

    What on Earth is a “tone” meeting?

    I did see “Arrival” yesterday. Excellent film. Cerebral sci-fi, quite thought provoking, as is Dark Matter. I recommend seeing Arrival.

  2. Joe, for your anniversary tribute post for today I have two things to share with you.

    First, a lovely thank you video from @Gforce and his birdie. I chose this one for today since you were able to enjoy Gary’s company yesterday, it seemed appropriate:


    Second, I have an amazing piece of tribute art, lovingly created by the one and only @ceresis64:


    P.S. Joe, I don’t know how to upload a picture directly into the comment. If you want to replace the picture with the Twitter link please feel free!

  3. @ponytail – do you have Periscope? I have it on my phone, so I have no problems, but if I click on a Periscope link from Twitter on my laptop, a new tab opens up and I can see the videos play on my laptop. Not sure if that was helpful or not. 🙁

  4. So I see Canada is all decked out for Christmas too? At least you’ve passed your Thanksgiving already. We still need to have ours. Sigh. I’m a one holiday at a time kinda gal.

  5. Awwwww. Bubba n Lulu are the most precious kids anyone could ever want, eh! And Akemi the best mom in the whole wide world! xo

    Ok Joe Ready for some more grand finale mystery gift solving fun?

    So far only two of our beloved family members, @2cats & @PbMom
    have even come remotely close to being on the right track.
    But hey! No worries, the clues are gonna keep on coming to tease Joe all month long,
    so feel free to chime in here on the blog with your guesses.
    Its all part of the fun.

    (Yes, Joe… that does mean ‘you’ can openly post your guesses here too)

    This clue is slightly easier to help more of you get on the right track.
    Then again, its also entirely possible i could simply be having some fun with
    with the snazzy paint by numbers art of misdirection guide and activity book
    I found in one of those Dollarama type discount shops last christmas.

    Clue #5
    This gift wont earn you any money. Nope. Sorry. Nada. Not a single penny.
    (Sorry Joe, -guess you’d better keep buying them multimillion dollar power ball tickets). Nor will it help make you as famous as Gene Rodenberry or Steven Spielberg. E’er just the same, it will lend your writing a deeper sense of joy and purpose, while honoring two beloved beauties close to your heart, that are neither baby nor a bay leaf.


    Clue #1: https://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/2016/10/24/october-24-2016-my-writing-process/#comment-229403

    Clue #2:https://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/2016/10/27/october-27-2016-dark-matter-designs-and-dogs-what-more-could-you-ask-for/#comment-229500

    Clue #3: https://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/2016/10/30/october-30-2016-here-we-go-again/#comment-229553

    Clue #4 A playful teasing echo of clue #2 https://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/2016/11/05/november-5-2016-thanks-and-a-lulu-update/#comment-229723

  6. So a whole month later, How’s the fallout from losing crew and construction members to the new trek show going? Or have they all come back? He says in a sly way to see if Joe knows anything about whats going on with the lack of news from Star Trek Discovery 😛

  7. Yay; the Twitter link worked!

    I’d still love to know how to post a picture in the comment box. 😀

    @Drea – you’ve got me stumped.

  8. Bubba looks smashing in his Christmas sweater! Looks like it’s cooling off up there with Akemi being all bundled up. Have a great week!!

  9. @Kathy No worries the clues are gonna keep on coming and begin piecing together. I set them up to be like a jigsaw puzzle. The more pieces that are fitted and filled in, the clearer the finished picture becomes.

    How did your day go at the chiro. office? Are you gonna take the job??

    By the way: Have any of you seen or heard from @Elminster? The Whisky/whiskey? idea was his and I sent him two separate/private emails to let him know when to attend the presentation and to get back to JeffW but never received a reply.

    Worried about him because of his still recovering from previous health issues. Very much hope he is doing ok? If any of you hear anything please let me know ok.

  10. Loving the pup pix – Bubba modelling his new kit and practising his vogue ‘expressions’. Lulu, bless her, is still looking cheerful despite her ‘dinner time hint’ position. When does she see her specialist next? Thinking of you all…

    So looking forward to this weeks work schedule …. and I’m not even there (in spirit I am!!). Ooow, and FRIDAY!!!
    I LIKE Friday!!!!!

  11. I took vids of the tiny wistful Charlie Brown Christmas trees on sale at my local market. I guess big trees are passé.

    Lulu is smiling!! It’s wonderful to see happy pugs styling new togs just in time for the holidays.

    Thanksgiving is coming fast, I need to order Junior’s Cheesecakes for my sibs, who will send cheesecakes to me. We could just buy ourselves cheesecake but the annual round robin cheesecake gift-off is more festive.

  12. Great video @gforce

    @KathyC Twitter link did indeed work and boy…..what an intro, gosh….thank you 😊

    @Drea still thinking……and I need more clues!

    Another busy week ahead, Joe!
    Friday…..FIRST DAY OF PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY…..just had to shout that out – woohoo 😎

  13. I’m glad JeffW, his lovely wife Barb and Gforce met up with you and Akemi! Looks like y’all had fun and I do hope you like the Whiskey, Let us know how it is please. I might look that up for my hubby.

    That Raza ship was freaking AWESOME JeffW!

    Just got back from a fun ladies trip to Destin. It might take me a while to catch up. Perfect timing on my trip because I missed a lot of the election hoopla. Bit a shocker but I voted third party, so I was prepared to be disappointed either way. I had to stop looking at social media that week. People were going crazy! Usually, normal people were unfriending and foaming at the mouth. I don’t remember that kind of reaction…EVER.

    Great pictures and don’t work too hard!!!

  14. I hope we can find out what happened to @Elminster

    Love your video @Gforce and your art work @ceresis64

    Better hope Akemi doesn’t ask you for more “bay leaf” or you’ll be reversing that observation tout suite. (Giggles)

    Love the puppies pics. Lulu smiling; Bubba would make an adorable reindeer.

    @TamDixon Sounds like you had a great time. It’s always good to get away. Better yet to turn off the noise from this election stuff.

    @Shinyhula That sounds like a great tradition.

    @Drea Don’t have any better ideas other than my original one, and my guess was a doozy, although most of it inaccurate.
