IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Barbara (goadra) volunteered to help create an archive of all the drabbles from the drabblefest. Many wonderful thanks to Barbara for taking on this job!

She created a LiveJournal Community and it can be found here:

http://community.livejournal.com/bbmdrabblefest/

Entries are tagged by date, prompt, and author so now folks have a quick and easy way to go back and read favorites. One drawback of the threads here is that it is hard to find stuff. The archive solves that problem.

Please take a moment to visit the archive. If you have suggestions or comments, please contact either me or goadra. Thanks!

Wow.  This is so cool .  :)    Love it.    :D

Thank you so much, Barbara.  That must be quite a job - all your work is appreciated.  I'll visit as soon as I can - I have a feeling I'll be spending a lot of time there, too.   :)

Aw thanks Marie...what I need is to find some way to put you in my alarm clock so that when 5 am hits everyday, I can awake to the sound of your wonderfully encouraging words.

    " Daddy Jr said to Ennis."  "Yeah" he asks?  "Whats a doofus?"  "Well its a person that
acts stupid or dumb."  "Why do you wanta know?"  "Cause this Billy Gradey called me one."
"Well pay him no mind girl, hes probably one hisself." "Daddy, am i a doofus?"  "No darlin you aren't no doofus."  "I know a doofus first hand, and you ain't nothing like him."  "Good"  she
says.  I don't want anyone to think Im stupid, or dumb."  "Well darlin if you were, there is
a lot worse things."  "I kinda like a doofus anyway."  "They are usually a whole lot of fun, and
nice besides." 
     "They will try to cheer you up when you are sad.  Make you laugh, and be understandin
when you need a friend."  "Yes, there is a lot worse things to be.  Thats for sure,"  "Ok
daddy, then I guess its not so bad to be a doofus, is it?"

Ennis - and you - are very wise.  Maybe we need more doofuses in the world.   :)
