Flamingos and Moose

The oddest thing happened today. I looked at my sitemeter and I was getting a whole lot of traffic from a blog I had not read. It was from Debbye atBeing American in T.O. So I did what I normally do when I notice that, and I clicked over to see who it was. I only knew it was a munuvian, but that is all.

Her blog was blank. Not a post in sight, as happens when one has not blogged in awhile, only some posts in the archives. So I went through her July posts… nothing indicative of a link to me. I couldn’t figure out how people were coming by way of her to me. But I noticed her calendar in the corner had marks as if she had posted.

For you non-bloggers, if you look in the upper left hand corner of my blog, you’ll see a calendar. If you run your cursor over a date, if I have a post for that particular date, it becomes underlined. If you click it, it will take you to that day’s posts.

So I see a calendar on the blog and realize she posted yesterday, but am not sure why it isn’t showing up on her blog. I clicked it… and… it came to MY blog. I have no clue why. Any date I clicked, I got my posts.

Wondering what was up, I started going to random munuvian blogs with calendars clicking their calendar to see if the same thing happened, perhaps it was a universal glitch throughout all of us munuvians. It was not the case.

So I e-mailed Pixy, our own Wizard of Munuvania, and he said he had no real clue either, but he waved his magic wand and it corrected itself. Who knows?

But what I saw was that most of her readers were from Canada and the Great White North (as in US of A) so I wanted to say to any of you who found yourself back down this way in sunny old Florida:

Welcome! Come back and see us again, ya hear!!!

(Excuse the photoshopping skills... as in... I have none.)

And... reading through her last posts, it seems that she's had some tough times as of late, so I'll be going back over to Debbye's and checking on her blog. I hope she's up and running again soon.

Uh huh... likely story... why didn't you just say you wanted new readers? We could have gotten you some...

I took a look at the url referral on my meter a few minutes ago and they are still coming in from Boudicca. Thank you Boudicca-now if they'll just come back!

Did you notice that flamingo was actually bigger than that moose? I'm guessing you've never seen a moose up close, have you Bou? ;)

Ummmm... Ogre... its because the Flamingo is right here next to me and the Moose is far far away, like maybe, Canada! So it gives this appearance that the Flamingo is actually bigger than the Moose! Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket... (Yes, I've never seen a moose other than a zoo..)

Tonyguitar- I keep stopping by there. My prayers are with her and her family. Tough times for sure.
