Mrs G COMETH....

It is 3:30 and Mrs G is due soon.  Many of you will know what that means...OK, what it means is that a mega-blogger, a VERY important one is driving around the USA meeting some of her readers....thousands of miles, hundreds of readers, dozens of towns.  Today-- Saturday she is here.  Arriving shortly.  Hopefully she is NOT an axe murderer, eh wot?  or KINKY, right?  I mean, honestly... ;)

OK, so I cleaned the studio bathroom for the first time in....6 and a half years.  ICK.  The area behind the terlet???? Let's just call THAT the Bermuda triangle....bleg.  I need servants, right?  but it is ME, I am the househusband.  I also made so much potato salad the fridge is bursting, banana mufffins with blueberries and applesauce pie with blueberries (see below!  I have a lot of blueberries don't I????).
There is a party Friday HERE.  I need to make a couple more salads in the morning, but we are in good shape here. As long as the septic tank holds up....and the well water.  This is the country, and well, sh!t happens, sadly, and it HAS happened....BTW as soon as Mrs G goes, I have a boatload of cousins visiting, oh boy!
Check Spike down below AFTER I put the sign on Mrs G's room....

I love the mug and I'm sure Mrs. G will love it to pieces. You sure are a great host, Gary. All that cooking AND cleaning. I am very impressed. I hope you have a fantastic party. Looking forward to following along on your blog. Have fun!!

how lucky you are to have Mrs. G stay with you on her tour! And how lucky of Mrs. G to have the opportunity to meet my favorite potter! Enjoy!

Cool mug! And that pie? tart?.....whatever, I wants it!
Speak to me not of wells running dry or septic systems backing up in january. The joys of home owning!
Have a wonderful time with Mrs. G. Assume there will be many pictures.
Spike looks very comfy...so nice that you fixed a bed especially for him!

Gary, you are a gem! When you roll out the red carpet it is really blueberry! I especially LOVE the mug. What a sweet touch. Have fun!

Mrs. G. is no more an ax murderer than I am... and I'm pretty sure you know I'm not an ax murderer. Better yet, she isn't bringing 5 guys with her -- only Johnny Depp and Kitty Gigantica (which, I hope you agree, is an awesome folk art painting. I want to adopt it).

HAVE FUN!!! I so wish I could be there, too!

Gary, you are the coolest! I can vouch for Mrs. G. Not being an axe murderer - she didn't attempt to off me, at least. Have a great time

I'ma be even jealouser if Mrs. G gets to sleep with Spike. Cookies, scones, pie, AND Spike? No fair!
