There is something I’ve been dealing with in silence for a long time. Now is finally the time for me to come out with the truth. I think my wife, Snowball, has been suspecting for some time. Some of my friends have been able to see this in me without my saying a thing – they just expect it. So there’s no other way to say it than to just say it.

I hate spiders. I consider bugs of any kind a necessary evil but spiders are special to me because of the webs. And yes i know that spiders keep down the population of other flying bugs. And there starts but one of my love/hate relationships with all bugs. […]
As I looked at this website’s control panel dashboard after my last posting I saw an interesting number. This will be the 100th blog post made by Griffin and me on this website. I think that calls for a celebration.
So the first thing I’ve done is create a Facebook page for this site that’s all it’s own. Yes, we are still part of Wizard’s Touch, but now we can get even more curmudgeoney without the worry of diluting someone else’s brand. I know I get a lot of traffic from the Wizard’s Facebook friends. I hope all of you will start following me on this new page.
Using this FB page you can click directly to the Idle Thoughts Online Shop too. Be on the lookout for some new designs in these shops. We have a big push going on this year for new and different products in all of the Wizard’s Touch family of stores.
And finally, Snowball, Griffin and I want to thank all of you who have supported us in our creative efforts in the past. We hope to have lots of new exciting things to show you in the times to come.
I have a small group of very long-time friends. We’ve known each other since the seventies – some even before then. Our group meets once or twice a year to keep caught up on what we are all doing; who has more grandchildren and who has died. And we reminisce about the old days which we all seem to remember differently, if at all. The old saying “If you remember the seventies then you weren’t really there” applies whole-heartedly to this group.[…]
