'Hey Ma what's up - you haven't put a new post up on The Hedge for ages.'
'Yep Son # 3 I know, but I've been flat out like a lizard drinking with everything else, you know how it goes.'
'Sure do Ma, got to keep up my image as a partee animal & now that I'm 32 I'm finding it tough, but I'm still giving it a good nudge. Anyways Ma, checking into The Hedge everyday when I get to work keeps me in the loop if ya get my drift, living away from home & all. Can you get ya act together & start posting again.'
'Sure mate, I think I'll have a few minutes each day between 2.20a.m. & 3.10a.m. I'll do my best to meet your request. Love you too.'
'Hey Ma what's up - you've been slacking off at The Hedge, we thought you might be crook or something.'
'Well Son # 5 if you recall mate I did start a new job 6 weeks ago that's requiring me to be out the door at 8.15a.m. & I'm not pulling the trusty Subi into the driveway 'til after 6p.m. Then I need to start dinner straight up 'cos MOTH's screeching like a wounded banchee that he's starving, then there's puppy Lulu to attend to, then a load of washing to chuck in, phone calls to all you boys & my neglected friends to try & catch up on, an hours worth of work emails to plough through now that the blokes at work in the U.S. are awake & wanting stuff answered & so it goes.'
'OK well sort yourself out will ya Ma, 'cos you've set a certain standard over the years & at present ya not meeting it at all.'
'Sorry mate, I'll make amends immediately, things will change I promise.'
'Hey Ma, I've been thinking about a way I could help ya out with The Hedge, seein' as I've noticed things have gone rool quiet on that front.'
'And dear Son #4 how might that be?'
'I've got a guest post almost done & ready for your
censoring perusal. It's taken me a while but it's a ripper, you'll love it!'
'BINGO!!!!! If it's any good you've just inherited your other brothers share in the Will.'
So there you have it dear Hedgies, a quick run-down on why things at The Hedge have gone VERRRRRY quiet. But it looks like Son #4 is about to turn things around.......be afraid, be very afraid!!!!
