Friday Funnies: Happy 2023!

Hello My Happy People,

I'm sorry I missed the first few Friday Funnies of this year. I have been fighting a horrible lung infection and got over it enough just in time to have a heart catheter check up I had scheduled back in September. I'm feeling better but a bit beat up at the moment. They were only able to do half the exam through my wrist so they had to go in my leg too. I'm a tad bruised. From what I understand, I was having a lot of muscle spasms that were causing the problems.

The good news is my heart is in great shape. The bad news is, being in bed the past few weeks has really messed up my plans. Whenever I get a lot of grand ideas of all the things I plan to accomplish, Murphy always has to step up and say, "Nope, not happenin'!"

It doesn't stop me from continuing to try though. I want to schedule a few interviews in the coming weeks. The start of season two of Book Banter with Dianne Burckhardt starts February 1st. I hope to be able to tell you about my plans for season two soon, because if they all come through ... they are going to be amazing! Cross your fingers!

For now, I'm still worn out, moving slowly, trying not to cough, and mostly sleeping. I'm supposed to be on bed rest until Sunday so I'm going to get right to the jokes so I can go back to sleep. Chat more with you soon!

Have a wonderful weekend, people!
