  3. Gin in the cat dish…oh my. And to be clear, Shakespear was trying to get his dog, Spot, away from the canapes during the party. It could also be Data from Star Trek talking to his cat.

  15. Hi Mitch, I went to my dashboard and can’t figure out why you were blocked, so I messed with it for a while and, hopefully, regardless of the fact that I don’t know what I’m doing, it is fixed. Please try again and let me know!

    Thank YOU! 😊 Dori 🙂

      Hi Dori. Well, 2 out of 3 ain’t bad: I clicked on your ‘Celebrate His Love’ link above and also on the one in the email notification I received, and both took me right to your blog site. But when I clicked on your profile image above (the green square) and then on the link at your Gravatar page I received the ‘access denied’ message.

        I went in and updated my Gravatar, so I’m hoping that will fix that. However, it is still showing the green square, not sure why. Totally puzzled! 🤷🏼‍♀️

        Well…the green square has been replaced by your actual profile picture, but unfortunately the link on your Gravatar page still says “access denied.” And you name (in the comment above) is back to Anonymous.

        I’m puzzled… I have no clue why it’s doing that. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Any thoughts on what else Ican try?

        Unfortunately, no, Dori. I usually try googling something like “how can I fix/do such-and-such in WordPress,” and if that doesn’t work resort to trial-and-error.

    Happy New Year Mitch! Thanks for the smiles. Winston Churchill was a witty guy. 🙂 I like the one where a woman told him that if he was her husband she would give him poison to drink. He replied, “and if I was your husband I would drink it!”
