So Long …

Posted by at Jan 1, 2014 6:00 am

“I’m so glad we had this time together
Just to have a laugh or sing a song
Seems we just get started and before you know it
Comes the time we have to say, “So long.”<

Sung by Carol Burnett at the close of THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW each night. At the close of each episode Carol would tug her ear. According to Wikipedia, this silent message was meant for her grandmother who raised her, and meant she was thinking of her at that moment.

Well consider this our ear tug.  We’re thinking of you and always will be.  Please please take your time and sign up for each of us, every way you want to keep in touch!

THIS ISN’T GOODBYE, IT’S SO LONG … and to prove it, here are the ways for you to reach each of us.  We’re listing them all, keeping in mind that not everyone partakes in every social media outlet.  Rest assured, we are always around!

      P.S., Carly, the lyrics are perfect as a way to end the blog. I loved the Carol Burnett Show. Still love seeing bits of it now & then or seeing Carol as a guest on any program. That was darn good television.
      I’m looking forward to the next Dare book. See you on Facebook. :-D 8) :dog:

    :wave: So long, farewell, I bid you goodbye and lot’s of fond memories of you all. I thought of the song from the Sound of Music when you started your blog today, “So Long, Farewell, …” I will miss all of you wonderful ladies. You all had such wonderful blogs and shared so many things with your readers. I felt like I was a part of your family. Awww…I am really going to miss you guys! (sniff, sniff) :cry2: I just loved getting my morning Plotmonkey fix everyday with my cuppa tea! Well, you all take care and I will see you at your websites and on facebook.
    Happy New Year to each one of you pretty girls! May you all have happy, healthy and prosperous New Years!
