4th blog-a-versary (Readers poll – please vote)

I cannot believe it has been 4 years since the wacky asylum denizens first appeared in my blog.

the gang mid game

Little did I realize what a rollercoaster of emotions lay ahead.  Each episode felt (still feels) like I had rent myself open and exposed very tender parts of myself for public scrutiny  (scribblers are a strange lot I know).

TBH sometimes I did not think I would go on, but here I am.

Some of you might be wondering if I AM still here.


I know I have been MIA for a few months.  I have managed very few blogs since October.  There are a few RL factors that have given me a setback.

I have a new fuzzy beast.  I adore him BUT he is so much work.  I spend a lot of time going to obedience classes.  No not for me. Contrary to what “Bob” would tell you, I usually behave just fine.  AND to the groomer!  Factor in the “homework” on both of these endeavors …  SHM

His name is Mr Frodo Sir.


My sweet grands still occupy a BIG spot in my life (and schedule).

RL has added another for me to enjoy.

This is little Gabriel (one week old today).


And of course the “old gang” … always the apples of my eye!


Now that RL has settled a tiny bit I find myself floundering a bit on where to go next with the blog.

I have so many directions that I “need” to go but no inkling where to start.

So I thought to turn to you and put it to a poll.

Before I post the poll let me present the options.

Exiled Bruno and Rose-red, running from the dark queen Evella, are nearing his forest home in his family’s Kingdom.  They “adopted” an alien child (who is being sought after by an evil alien queen and some dastardly nere-do-wells .. yep double trouble).   Challenge: Alien Wild Child Adoption

Wicked Queen Evella.  She was a bit shaken up when an attempt was made on her life as well.  She is hiding out in Glimmer brook and attempting to learn all the dark magic she can gain so that she can go back to Bruno’s Kingdom to regain the throne.  Challenge: On top of exploring the ROM magic, there is a quick bachelor challenge planned.  As with all things Evella it will not be the usual fare.

Prince Charming’s youngest son, Aster has been invited to join the alien rebellion forces to train for the uprising against the Alien evil queen (yes another .. I do love my evil queens).  He is joined by Bruno’s brother Caiden (who I left in the jungle) and darling Molly, who is mad over Aster.  Aster leads a ragtag bunch of alien soldiers.  They are exploring the Military career and doing Simdoughnut’s Return to the Jungle challenge (while I try to figure out how to do an alien uprising LOL).

There is the “Back in Windenburg” crew (complete with the weasel).  Recent widow Alexander Goth is keeping the seat of the throne warm for Mike while the dashing officer Theis and Ms V work on solving the murders and attempted murders that have recently plagued Windenburg.  I have not done anything with this one so I am not putting it up for a vote option.

    1. Ty Mena … I love all the stories too and that’s the problem. I had no idea where to land to kick it off. They all eventually get addressed but where to start … I know that probably sounds ridiculous but I really couldn’t decide.
