Tallulah is Owed Apologies


Well, I think I can see part of the problem. Look at the picture of the delightful Tallulah and see what kind of shoes she’s wearing. Has she had to walk downhill AND uphill on your morning walks wearing those shoes? No wonder she was cranky and sending you messages.I am glad you listened and went to the cardiologist. Hopefully this takes care of things and you can enjoy your walks again. Maureen

My Darling Maureen,

You are obviously a discerning woman to have noticed my shoes.  Since I have to perform my job in the nude I pay extra attention to my hair and shoes.  You are absolutely right I was not given time to change into more appropriate attire before we walk.  I shall discuss this with The JudyJudith.

Yours Truly,



Judy and Tallulah … Judy I am glad you figured it was time to go to the cardiologist … and Tallulah – I am delighted you are keeping my new blogging friend on track … please continue with your excellent diligent work!! 🙂
My Dearest Becca,

You are so kind to point out how I keep JudyJudith on track.  It is absolutely delightful to be recognized by such an illustrious Poetess such as you.  You have a knowing beyond your years.

With the kindest of regards,



and…….? have me worried about you now. umm,, stupid question but what made you keep walking for an hour and a half when you knew you weren’t feeling well? Would that be Tallulah Stubbornhead?! Feel better, and please give an update. Love, Laurie F.

My Dear Laurie F.
The Judy Judith walked for about 20 minutes going downhill. I kept telling her I was beat but she thought it was because she was holding her breath too much while she was chanting her prayer. So she stopped chanting where upon I kept telling her I just was walking to the beat of a different drummer. When she finally got the message that I just wasn’t up to par it took her over an hour to get back home because she had to go UP hill.
Very truly yours,
P.S. You are a good friend to be worried about her. HOWEVER, I am a bit hurt, no make that WOUNDED, that you called me Tallulah StubbornHead.  I do believe an apology is in order.

I think Tallulah StubbornHead is totally appropriate.  My goodness, you cannot mess around with Tallulah PaceHead, especially when she’s being cranky.  You and Tallulah have many people, including Max, relying on you, you know.  I think the early morning prayer walks sound wonderful.  I may try that myself.  Please, please take care of yourself.  Raffie

My Dear Raffie,

YOU TOO with the StubbornHead!  That is totally inappropriate.  Let me tell you . . . if I weren’t stubbornly ticking day and night, night and day, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, 24 hours a day, with no time off, no vacations, no sleep, stubbornly stimulating JudyJudith’s heart she would be kaput. I do believe I am owed an apology.

Sincerely yours,


P.S. You are a good friend to be worried about her. HOWEVER, I am a MORE THAN A bit hurt that you, of all people called me Tallulah StubbornHead.


Cranky folks often need more attention — and often cause they are cranky, we would rather ignore them.
I hope that this new level of crankiness for Tullulahcrankypacehead gives you back your morning walks!
Tell Tallulah for me that you are special, and she shouldn’t be so hard on you, even if she is a crankypacehead.

Dear Dear Lorraine,

TallulahCRANKYPacehead!  You are adding even more insult to injury.  NOW I REALLY AM GETTING CRANKY.  I am beyond hurt, beyond. beyond, beyond



!P.S. You are a good friend to be worried about her. HOWEVER, I am a MORE THAN A bit hurt , I am decimated that you  called me TallulahCRANKYpaceHead.

THESE shoes were made for walk'n

My Dearest Darlings Maureen & Becca,

YOU alone are the ONLY ones who STOOD up for me.  You shall have my undying (no pun intended) admiration and gratitude.  We are women hear us roar.

  1. No apology needed. We all get cranky — even Tallulah (but don’t tell her). I thought my reponse was written in a tongue-in-cheek- tone, but I guess I was a bit off the mark! Glad that she’s working at the right “pace” now.


      • The rich nephew and neice in Tustin haven’t agreed to adopt me as their one and only child. Til then, unless I win the lottery, or they or my other rich nephew decide to give us huge sums of money (hasn’t happened in the past), I’m not bound for California.
        Sorry Max — I had wanted to vacation with you!
        Trouble with rich relatives (I have them on both sides) is they don’t seem to want to share it around — I always manage to be the “poor relation” of Jane Austin or Little Women fame.


          • They couldn’t say no if you and max hand delivered the papers! Max can be very persuasive! (spelling wrong, I think). As far as I know, they don’t even have a pet! (They travel ALOT; they have been to EVERY continent, including Antartica recently!) Helps to both be working at high paying jobs! They could easily afford to adopt me, keep travelling (I’ll keep an eye on that big screen tv in the entertainment centre out by the pool, for example). I can easily live in their backyard!


  2. Well, I thought I called it like it was — you needed to be cranked up and Judith had titled the blog my cranky pace maker. So, crankypacemakerhead. If it was the shoes that made you cranky, well fine, but I thought your answer was cranky, anyway.


  3. Stubbornhead stays. But, we love you and only want the best for you, health wise, from the inside out. I do not believe an apology is necessary. Concern for you shows true friendship. That’s all that matters. “Life is good.”


    • Laurie and Lorraine and everyone else I offended.
      I will have to watch my weird sense of humor on the blog. I absolutely knew that everything was said lovingly and with concern. My attempt at humor bombed and I send all of you apologies. When I write I need to remember no one can see the smile or hear the laugh or feel the love I receive from all of you.

      And of course I know that I started it by calling Tallulah cranky. You guyz have been quite wonderful and in no way do I want to make light of your friendship.
      With love always,
