Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF

 

“Dad. Lucy won’t ruckus with me.”
“I’m sure that’s not true, Twiggy.”
“Believe her, Boss.”

Well, it’s Friday at last. I hope you are glad the day is here. I know Twiggy seems to think it is pretty special. I’m still trying to figure that out. Her treats don’t change and there is nothing special about her menu that would warrant a celebration. Maybe she senses a finish to the week that Friday represents. That is a good feeling.

Since it has been relatively quiet the last two days you can assume the tour for Eternal Road is over.  I certainly want to thank all the bloggers who were kind enough to invite me to their blog. The scope of the tour was quite impressive. We traveled to eight countries, and the message was delivered to over 100,000 followers of the blogs. Yes, there were some duplicates but the figure still blows me away.

In addition, I used universal links on this intro, which meant I could track the clicks on those links. Again, there is an unknown amount of duplicates but during the period of the tour, over 3200 clicks were reported from nine countries.

So when I’m asked how the tour went, I respond with high praise.

To those who visited all these posts, I am also very grateful that you did and hope you found some interesting folks to follow.

So that’s a wrap. I’m going back to work on the next one. (yeah, I took a half a day off) Thanks everyone. Today’s JohnKu talks about support. Have a great weekend.

The load is heavy,

And you can’t lift by yourself. . .

Help is wonderful.

  7. Helping with a heavy load always feels good, John. It’s a gift that goes both ways.

    I think you should take a little extra time off, and ruckus with Twiggy. Is she as solid as she looks?

    1. She is as solid as she looks. Believe it or not she is 25 pounds of muscle. To give you an idea, if she were the size of Lucy she would be over 100 pounds. Lucy weighs 60. Bull dogs are very strong too. Thanks, Dan

    Twiggy-Lucy Friday acrobatic etude is very puzzling! Does it mean joy or sadness? None can answer…They look North & South welcoming their friend Friday!
