It's nice to see Andy's back .... especially after seeing his front...

Hi, Soodik-fans. Andy Parks here again. Don't Panic! Trish is okay ... but either her computer or her ISP ("internet service provider" for the anagrammatically challenged) isn't working as it should, making it impossible for her to blog. So she's asked me to post a message letting everyone know that she'll be right back after this brief interruption. In the meantime....
Many years ago Trish was working on a crossword puzzle, and she was absolutely stumped by a word... phonetically, the word was "thoosly".... "Thoosly", she thought, "What the hell is 'thoosly'?". The word, of course, was "thusly".... but her brain had given the "u" the long vowel sound... as in "confusion". She found this very amusing (there's that long "u" again), and later was to name a dog (from a litter provided by the Parks' family's Louise) Thusly... spelled with a line over the "u" to indicate the long vowel sound. Thusly was a fine dog, with a broken tail, who once caught a fish... unassisted by rod or reel.
That's all for now.

I have had some hoorid Computer problems myself, lately...So I can empatgize!
Hope you will be back very soon, Trish...And meanwhile, I send you hugs and more hugs. Hey, did you know that THUSLY the darling dog, used to love to jump up in my lap when I was sitting in the Parks den? I LOVED IT! He was exactly a little tivy doggie either, but there was something so very dear about him jumping up in my lap and leaning right into my body! Andy might remember...or not, as the case may be. THUSLY was a Noble Dog, with a Noble Name!
