Mom wants to apologize to the blogosphere. SHe did NOT realize that what she wrote about Her Majesty, She Who Must Be Obeyed, Puddles, would be misconstrued in any way. Some readers have mistakenly interpreted what Mom wrote as CRITICISM of Her Majesty.
Let us assure you, Mom adores Puddles and has fallen under her spell. We have to live with the Puddles phenomenon. Mom would not even think a bad thought of Puddles, or any dachshund, for that matter.
