Friday Flash 55.....

.

.
G-Man.....?
I understand your dilemma!
You've worked hard these past four years
to bring useless information and a smile to DOZENS
of people from all over the World.
But remember... You have a full-time job, AND a real
3-D life! Cut back on your 'obsession', and concentrate
on Your Baby...Friday Flash 55!!!
Five Cents Please.....

.

So there it is in a nutshell... I'll still visit my friends,
And I'll occassionally play in some prompts from around
Blogdom. But I'm NOT letting my Sales and private life
suffer because I have self imposed "obligations".
I'm still irrevrently around, and It will ALWAYS be business
as usual on Fridays...
So if you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man!
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!
So from the most gracious host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Definitely worth the nickel!

Mama Zen said...

Take care of business at home, G-Man!

Mine will be up in the morning.

secret agent woman said...

Enjoy the increased home& work time.

Alice Audrey said...

I know how you feel. I've had to cut back a bit myself just so I can actually write the books I try to get published. But I'll always visit anyone who comes to visit me.

Mine is here

clean and crazy said...

aaa you got busted on the computer!!!! hey i got one up too!!

g-man said...

Susie....Not at all!!
I just didn't want to feel obligated EVERY DAY!

KB said...

Been there, done that. I understand where you are coming from. Balance is the key :)

KB said...

Oh and I've done a 55 this week !

Serena said...

Everybody deserves a little R&R time -- well worth the 5 cents, I'd say.

Yvonne Osborne said...

Whew, you scared me there for a minute. I thought you weren't doing Fridays anymore and I was going to be annoyed. Even though I haven't been a very faithful flasher I expect you to always be here on Friday! Totally understandable that you step back a bit. Blogging is fun but it isn't life. I'm up.

Missy said...

Galen, reality does offer far greater pleasures, although a bit of computer time never hurts.

Glad to hear your priorities are on track. Keep bundled up, wear your hat and keep warm socks on. I've seen the news and all the snow that's been falling around those parts.

You take care of you.

This is my first and hopefully not my last! It was much harder than I thought. Thank you for hosting this!

I see many others have done a direct link HELP ME! :) Can someone explain it to me, please?

Lucy is very very wise as is the G-man :)

My 55: Cautionary

Janna said...

You scared me for a moment there...
So you ARE still doing Friday 55, right? I love it so much, and it wouldn't be quite the same without you to lead everything.

Thanks for the time you put into every week of this!
Mine's here. :)

Ugh! I totally get this and have had to cut back on a lot of networking to stay sane...which is why I haven't been around here in awhile...but I was inspired to join tonight. Hope you don't mind...thx :)

I Gotta See That Eye

joanny said...

there is a lot of that going around... I myself go to one of those gypsy fortune telling machines but they charge 25 cents, and last time I followed the advice printed on the ticket, well I will save that for another time.... but will say that I did get myself in a peck of trouble,,sigh!

mine hopefully will be up sometime tomorrow on Friday...work & stuff in the way...

Here is my "55 words":

Belinda Munoz said...

I myself prefer the smiles over too much useful information. Glad you're not abandoning us on Fridays. And glad to be linking up again.

Nessa said...

Yeah, those self imposed obligations are enough to make you totally wack-o. Blogging becomes a full-time job too easily.

Eaton Bennett said...

I understand completely, G-daddy!!!
I'm so glad you're not disappearing altogether...that would make me sad.

Soooo, another real life 55 from me.
:))

itchy scratchy

hugs, Eaton

Eric 'Bubba' Alder said...

I don't blame you for cutting back, G-Man. As long as you're here for Fridays, I'm sure we'll be alright.

THIS is my 55.

You mean a Dozen thousand people, and fifty five million cents -of course!
:)

Yes Some 3-D life I need too!
I've posted something 4 u today...

Peaceful weekend GMAN and all of you readers!

hope said...

You had me worried for a minute there...just when I get BACK in the swing of 55s I thought they were leaving the station. :)

Understand totally! Have a great weekend!

Jingle said...

Be yourself, enjoy life..

agree with your standpoint on your 55.

here is My 55, Thanks!

Jadey said...

G-man I have missed you and everyone else. I am back and hopefully this time I can keep doing it. But you summed it up with your 55 work calls. Have a great 55 hugs to you

Myrna R. said...

I'm not submitting this week for some of the same reasons you give in your 55. I sure understand.

Glad you'll continue Friday 55. Take care.

MorningAJ said...

Glad to know you're still going to be around on Fridays.

I've done a very tired 55

Jannie Funster said...

I think it's AWESOME you are seeking balance between Real Life and blogging. I can totally relate. I have cut back to posting 2 days a week so I can get around to you guys' blogs better.

Fridays (and you ) will continue to RULE!!


I posted a 55whooo-hoooo!!

xoxo

Stranger said...

Looks like everything I wanted to say has already been expressed. I can relate and I'm relived that you'll continue hosting the Flash Fridays. You are, after all, the most gracious host from coast to coast.

Mine's up.

drybottomgirl said...

Now I really like you! Peanuts are just about the best, and Lucy is a rare breed. Stick with your convictions and I will see you on Fridays! Mine is up and have a sweet weekend....

Enchanted Oak said...

I understand, G-man. Priorities...

My 55 is here

hedgewitch said...

The internet can suck every minute of your day away. And garlic doesn't work--I've tried. Glad you're keeping the 55 going!

Here's mine--(and I'll be making the rounds a bit later--Much as I hate it, I also have to pry my rear up and do a few things today):

Goodbye Already

Jerry said...

Understood G. There is a fine line between mind and 3D matter. I have been very hit and miss lately and on vacation and forgot it was friday! I'll put a quik one up now.

Susan at Stony River said...

I *love* this post (thanks Lucy, definitely a nickel's worth LOL)

Real life is out there claling, isn't it? Which I guess is why I keep doing 55s... !! and I did one. And I should also cut way way back on the online thing.

Have a great weekend Mr. G!

Susan at Stony River said...

IT'S CALLING, I meant. Jeeeeeze, typing impaired today.

Jerry said...

Ok Galen...I got one done. Now go sell some stuff and I'll see you around the cyber cafe' soon.

gab said...

I understand..as you know I have cut back blogging. But I dont have a job like you just a family who pretty much do their own thing. Including Mr Gab which you can read all about. I will look forwards to your friday 55 posts.

Lulda Casadaga said...

Totally understand..that is why I only do the 55's. And even sometimes i get sidetracked and can't make it. Mines up! :)

Millie said...

Very wise human. My human should get a clue about that. Hers is posted here. http://razzamadazzle.wordpress.com/2011/01/14/beginnings/

G- Man

lime said...

balance in all things

Tina said...

I think there are many of us who have had to make that hard decision. And because of those real life obligations, I have no 55 this week. I so appreciate this meme, though. You're indeed a gracious host and you definitely Kick-Ass!
