Yet another template at LOTMR?
(That stands for Life on the Muskoka River, not Lord of The Monkey Rings. Harry B. Sanderford calls this joint LOTMR and for that I am smitten. Look, mah, I'm initials! I'm like CBC and CBS and ABC and WTF!)
But I digress.
Yes, another template.
But I'm HAPPY about this one!
This follows on the heels of a year or so of UN-happy. A lot of the blogger templates just weren't doing it for me. They were like Goldilocks and the Three Blogs: some were too manly and some were too femmy with nothing really in between. Finally I realized I was going to have to do it myself if I wanted it to say ME.
So who is 'me?'
I'm funny, sometimes. (Shaddup people I work with!)
I'm weird, sometimes.
I whine. I write stories. I adore Hamburger Helper and iceberg lettuce.
I love my green canoe and my Muskoka River and the husband, two sons, two cats, one small dog and numerous red squirrels, snapping turtles and fish who share it with me. Oh, and the zombies in the bunkie.
And I love being Canadian.
I wanted a topper that said all those things and, after fooling around with it a bit, I think I came up with the perfect Cathy O-Webster template.
OK, it's not perfect... I already see a problem with water in the canoe.. must fix that tomorrow before the Good Ship Monkey Rings sinks to Muskoka's muddy bottom.
But it is pretty funny.
I showed it to my boys tonight and they giggled. So did hubby. The dog didn't say much – just arfed to go outside so she could fertilize the snowbank.
Every family has a critic.
