Stop Short



or padded


or tatted

to hell with catchall mitts

gloves implying


urge to return hit…

if I’m dusty

knuckles busting

pinkie drooping low

I won’t hide it

just abide it

and I’ll skip

marking toes…

  1. not at all–it was very helpful. I switched back to the original title–kids mitts meant to be kismet and also kid gloves and well…back to the original title…;)

    • I wondered why the name changed lol. Akismet or akimset or a set of kims is peeing me off at the moment with hiding my comments in the spam bin on a lot of blogs again. I had this problem last year. If it carries on, I may stop blogging until it is fixed

    • yeah, the name sorta worked on too many levels–I was thinking of catchers’ mitts, and kid gloves–and then when kismet became a possibility–just a big snarly ball of “almost”…

      you know my feelings on all that WP schtuff–or will–when you read my e mail!!! Don’t let the bastids get you down, an’ I won’t either. Promise. 😉

    Its just incredible

  3. TY, Ay! Didja see how I took your “advice” on the title…hehehe…this is why input is so valuable: what I saw as a possibility, was too far-fetched (even for me!!) anyway. Nice to come home to this thoughtful re-bloggery…thank you for making my day…:)
