I'm Back...


Yup, that’s me. A side profile, kind of out of focus picture of me doing the ritual dock thing. (That would be drinking, not swimming….)

I classify this shot as semi-incognito. I don’t think anyone would recognize me live and in person after peering at this one. (Just ask Oreneta.)

Not sure why I’m reluctant to reveal all. Of my face. It goes without saying I’m not about to reveal anything else.

Too bad you can’t see the entire baseball cap logo. It’s The Toronto Maple Leafs. Of course.

And, yeah, I look like I’m advertising Vex coolers but I’m not. It’s just a prop!

Interesting (to me) is my nose. I had no idea it looked like that in profile - which is understandable since I’m not capable of looking sideways at myself.

It’s good to be back although the break from the city was appreciated.

Got lots of catching up to do – both in real life and in the blogging world.

Welcome back! Hope you had a GREAT time. And whaddya mean it's just a prop? I'm assuming that you let loose and had a few drinkies while you were there...hell, you should have invited ME and I'd have drunk for the both of us!

I like your nose. Wish mine were as cute as yours.

Eileen said...

I am so glad you are back!!! I missed you, I really did. It just wasn't the same around this blogger world without you. Having said that, I hope you had a really good time getting away from it all.
Love the picture, very cute!
XOXO

patricia:
Well, okay, even if it was a prop I did manage to finish it.

eileen:
What a lovely comment. Missed you, too. Missed blogging!

oreneta said...

Yahooooo!! Did miss ya...and it does look like you, but I wouldn't have picked you out in a crowd from the pic....sounds like you had a great time.

Hope so.

What did you think your nose looked like?

Dorky Dad said...

So you're getting HAMMERED in that picture? Fantastic. Is this what you did on vacation then? Drink?

And welcome back. Be incognito all you want. People on the Internet can be creepy.

All Mod Cons said...

Welcome back kiddo. Looking forward to some "Tales Of The Unexpected".

Mom of Three said...

When I first saw the photo, I thought it was a model for a drink ad!

We leave on vacation Thursday. With three kids and two states and 11 hours each way, I may need to drink, too.

Beth said...

oreneta:
My nose? I dunno. Didn't really think it was so rounded at the end.
It's good to be back.

dorky dad:
Hammered? I wish. That's so not me. Maybe once in a blue moon - and then I'm a real treat to be around. (I crack people up.)

all mod cons:
No tales of the unexpected will be forthcoming - unless they have to do with creatures of the wild. (The snapper!)

mof3:
A model? Whoopee! Okay, maybe an aging model...
Enjoy your vacation. Drink - but don't drink and drive! (11 hours each way. Ouch.)

Shari said...

Good to see you rested up and blogging again.

Who can look at their profiles? I thought my nose was like a ski-hill till I saw mine. Nope. Just a little tilt. LOL. Another thing, to me, pictures of me never "look" like me or the way I see myself. Oh, well.

The Guy Who Writes This said...

Welcome back, Darlin. You were missed.

Beth said...

shari:
Yeah, I'm never too enamoured of pictures of myself. I prefer the "ideal" in my imagination.

guy:
Thanks - for both statements. They mean a lot.

Beth said...

Welcome back! I missed you..but it looks like you had a good time. What flavor is that? looks yummy!

Beth said...

beth:
Missed you, too!
The Vex flavour? Hard Peach Raspberry??

Sornie said...

Is there anything else more productive to do on the dock?

Mike M said...

Welcome back!!!

Beth said...

sornie:
Well, for women, talking and drinking is the best combo. We find them both very productive.

mike:
Thanks!

Dan said...

Welcome back Beth! I'm vexed that you didn't offer me one of those Vexes. :)

Beth said...

dan:
And I'm vexed (with myself) that you're vexed about those Vexes!
My apologies.

linda said...

Welcome back, Beth! Nothing better than being in cottage country with an ice-cold cooler and some great conversation is there? Glad you enjoyed your time away.

Pavel said...

Hi! Just visiting from Trish's. I thought I'd get to know a new blogger. As for the nose, it's a cute nose! (smile)

Very glad to meet you.

Beth said...

pavel:
Thanks for the visit - and for saying my nose is cute!

Beth said...

linda:
Thanks for the welcome back - see you soon!

Lainey-Paney said...

What the hell are you drinking?
What's Vex???

Beth said...

lainey-paney:
Vex? It's a "girlie" drink - comes in all sorts of different flavours.
I think it's becoming the female equivalent of beer!

Lainey-Paney said...

Vex.
Now I must have some.
Must find it somewhere....
hmmm....

Attila The Mom said...

You've got an awfully cute nose.

I'm jellus.

So glad to see you back!

Beth said...

attila:
Why, thank you, my dear!

Princess Pointful said...

I'm glad that, upon my return, you were back, too!

Beth said...

princess pointful:
Very good timing - although you managed some great posts while you were away (unlike myself).
