Calling in sick

I'm down sick with a one-day (I hope!) bug. I have barely energy for a quick note, then I'm heading for bed.

To all of you who participated in this year's IRFD, a big "Thank you!".  Though we were few in number, we turned up some wonderful findings. And I met some great bloggers and websites that I'd not seen before. As I said, I've ordered that book, "What's Under a Rock?" I'll report on it when it arrives.

Those of you who intended to join, and couldn't, for one reason or another; there's always next year. And it is permissible, you know, to flip rocks at any time during the year, and even to blog about it. I'm sure I will.

One question that has intrigued me, ever since we discovered this on our quest for good rocks: is this what keeps the tide water from draining out of Boundary Bay?

Bathtub plug?

Ok, I'll go to bed now.


  1. Sorry that I have stumbled in from cyber space only to find you sick. Get Better now. I will be checking back, I found your blog interesting! Turn a rock day is a great idea. Wish I had found you sooner...

  2. How absolutely funny. I guess it would take a very large plug to keep the water from draining from the bay ...

    I hope you are feeling better, since I notice it says it's been 12 hours since you posted this. I hope it wasn't what you found in your rocks that did you in! :=}

    I totally forgot about IRFD this year, even though you posted several notices. I guess I'm just that way. I must learn to make a calendar - and then actually USE it. Tee hee.

    Take care, I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  3. I hope you are feeling better soon.

  4. I am so sick too. Did absolutely nothing all day. Sister-in-law took Mingus for a walk because I couldn't.

  5. Thanks for the get-well wishes. I'm feeling somewhat better.

    Eileen, I hope you're getting over whatever it was, too.


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
