Friday John Ku – AKA – TGIF



Friday you sweet thing. Good to see you again. Well, this week I have been working like a mad man to try to set up some posts for the time I’m out-of-town. I am able to prepare posts for my regular features. The posts that are prompts will be a different matter. On Tuesday and Saturday, my prompts come from others, so I’ll just have to hope the WiFi works well. I will be gone ten days beginning June 18th.  Today’s JohnKu talks about the fear of missing out. I hope you have a great weekend.

When we are away,

The fear of missing out lives. . .

But is unfounded.



  1. We’ll miss you, John. Have a wonderful and safe trip!

  2. Have a super trip, John, Lucy won’t be the only one to miss you!

  3. Have fun. All else fails, you can schedule funny picture posts that go live if you can’t get to the prompts on time. Sure you’ll have plenty of stories from this.

    What a great JohnKu! I suspect the ones left behind feel “missing” more intensely. So, have fun but keep us entertained with photos – maybe one of you sporting a kilt? 🙂

    1. A kilt would be interesting I’m sure. Might be able to answer age old questions.

  5. 😀 I’m with Gwen — you could just post a photo whenever you have a moment to let us know “How ye daein?” It’s such a wonderful trip, I just want you to enjoy every minute of it. We’ll still be here. mega hugs.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I have posts set up for every day but Tuesdays and Saturdays. I’m thinking of running a Scotland Vies for Sundays. Hugs

  6. First and foremost, John – enjoy your trip. We look forward to your posts, but don’t fret. If I get lonely, I’ll look up a photo of Lucy. That will carry me for a few days.

    1. Thanks, Dan. As they say, I’ll be in touch.

  7. Enjoy your time away. It helps on occasion.

    1. Thanks. i think I’m all set up so I will enjoy. Thanks. Hope you are feeling better.

  8. GO! ENJOY!! Get online when you can, but don’t worry. Take lots of pictures!

    1. Thank you, Jan. Will do all those things. 🙂

  9. Good post, John. I love the quote at the top. Have a great vacation. 🙂 — Suzanne

    1. Thank you, Suzanne. 🙂

    1. You as well, Audrey

  10. You won’t be missing out, John. You’re going to be filling yourself up with sights and sounds and stories!

    1. Best way to look at it. Thanks, Marie.

  11. Wishing you a lovely holiday, John! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Natalie. 😀

  12. This weekend’s gonna flash by for you! 😀 Happy packing & safe journey to the land of Heather, Burns and Tartan. 😎

    1. Thank you, Jan. The Mackay tartan is beckoning us.

  13. Safe travels, John, and don’t worry about a thing. We’ll miss you, of course, but what’s the point of a vacation if you don’t get some rest?!?

    1. Thank you, Debbie. I have a feeling this will not be a restful trip. A Lot to see.

      1. Some of us are counting on exactly that — photos, please!!

      2. Yes for sure. 🙂

  14. I am all too familiar with scheduling posts in advance John. Enjoy your trip.

  15. You will be missed, John. I wouldn’t worry much about posts and comments. You deserve a break and a wonderful time away. Lots of pics on your blog when you come back, right? 🙂

  16. You will be too busy having new adventures to miss anything here! And with your scheduled posts we won’t miss you. Cheers for the weekend!

    1. Thank you, Jo. Have a super weekend.

  17. I’m with Mae – expecting pics when you get back.
