One-Liner Twofer – #1LinerWeds

Today is bonus One-liner Day. I have the one-liner I saved from Saturday night when our daughter Faith and I attended a baseball game. And I have a one-liner I hope is good news for many of you.

It was very hot on Saturday, and we arrived at the ballpark two hours before the game. The Yardgoats had suggested arriving early to avoid the traffic from other Hartford area events. They agreed to open the gates at 4:00 (for a 6:05 start) and they allowed vendors to sell food and drinks. Our seats were in a still sunny area, so it was a hot start.

I looked over at Faith during a period of strong gusts and said, “that breeze feels good.” She looked at me and said:

“That breeze is the leading edge of a hurricane!”

The breeze did feel good.

Yesterday, I received an update from Andrés Blanco, one of the developers at WordPress. Andrés has been working on the problem many of you are having where you are suddenly disconnected from blogs you are following (like mine). Andrés’ email was a one-liner:

“Based on the collected logs I drafted a potential fix for this issue that is now deployed. I will keep an eye on the logs to see if it mitigates the issue.”

Let’s all hope Andrés is successful.

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s fun weekly series One-Liner Wednesday. If you would like to join in on the fun, you can follow this link to participate and to see the one-liners from the other participants.


  1. Hi Dan – wise daughter … just glad it wasn’t the whole of the Hurricane – looks like you had fun and time for a good nattery chat. Crumbs – some people have a way with words don’t they … but great to see the pics and know all was well c/o you and the Editor and the critters … cheers Hilary

  2. Since I have some experience being a daughter, I have to say that sometimes it’s the daughter’s job to one-line the dad. Sometimes, I admit, it’s the other way around. Your photos of the sprinkler and its caption made me laugh out loud. If that isn’t an emblem of our species! The photo of the moon is splendid, and I love the capture of the honeysuckle — such graceful little things. Here we are dry, dry, dry. Lots of heat but only an occasional sky drip that waters nothing.

  4. There’s nothing like a baseball game in person, eh?
    I’m cheering for Andres and sincerely hope he’s successful!
    Typical cat remark, the curtain was in his way! haha, love it.

  5. Ha! Nice one-liner, Faith. Direct and to the point!

    Love your image of the moon, Dan. Our yoga class did moon salutations instead of sun salutations on Monday, which are not as pretty as your photography. Glad you had a good time in the hot breeze and I hope your weather is a bit more quiet this week. Happy Wednesday!

  6. Great one-liner Faith!! The picture of the bunny and those ears couldn’t be more perfect. Should be an oil painting. I like the moon shot too.

    MiMi and MuMu always entertaining. They’re like Frick ‘N Frack!! 😻

    By all means, run park sprinklers during monsoon weather. Would it be that hard to turn off the timer for a period of time?

    • Haha, apparently it is too hard. All this rain and we still add water like the field is a pack of ramen noodles.

      These kitty girls see the world from s different perspective – as in how it affects them.

      Take care in this heat, Ginger.


  7. Oh, Andres…potential, deployed, mitigate… He should have just said, “I think it might work. Fingers crossed!” Dan, that moon photo is beautiful. I cannot get a moon shot no matter how hard I try. Nice one! Did MiMi fix the curtains herself? That pose says it all–perfect cat body language.

  8. Hey Dan. It was good to hang out with you and Jinx and the rest of the crew this morning. That water droplet photo is gorgeous. Wow… I wish I could be surprised about them watering the already sodden field. At that rate, the birds and crows will be able to add a third team — alligators. I’m surprised it hasn’t turned into a swamp. I hear Polk Salad Annie is the pitcher for the gators’ team.
    Have a great rest of the week. Hugs on the wing!

  9. Well there’s a positive thought! :-) Can be true, of course. Interesting bonus one-liner. Reminds me of reading studies in physical education/fitness. I often wondered why they couldn’t just use more approachable language, even when I knew what they meant. Good luck that the deployed fix really does mitigate the issues.

    My favorite shot today is “You can look but don’t touch.” :-)
