Hi, everyone! What a week! Moose and I had to cancel our August vacation to take good care of our 12-week-old puppy, Nigel Bartholomew-Smythe. And then my computer crashed, and it took days to find and set up a new one. Today I realized that the Daytime Emmys are Sunday! I will also be resuming regular postings now that my official summer-long hiatus is over. As you all know, I couldn’t resist posting a bit this summer and the promised Part 2, to “Marlena’s Summer End Review, Part I” will appear here next week.
Darling readers who may have looked here for Emmy predictions, forgive me. I didn’t do them this year. I was offline all week. I assure you I will have plenty to say about the awards and the broadcast itself Monday.
Meanwhile, here’s a picture of our beautiful beagle, Nigel (yes, named after the One Life to Live character, played by Peter Bartlett. ) The first Emmys I wrote about and attended were in 1980; whoever thought a puppy would upstage them 29 years later?
