With the pending anniversary of my blog* The Board of Directors Here at Spo-reflections thought to send my annual review early and by email. Normally we do this face to face at Heorot Johnsons, but they are practicing social-distancing and they don’t do zoom. I think I got a good review – my ability to translate from the runes is not stellar:

Sven – ‘Spo works well when under constant supervision and cornered like a trapped rat at Tewkesbury. ‘

Bjorn –  ‘Urspo sets low personal standards and he consistently achieves them. ‘

Helga “Pippi” Long-stocking – ‘He’s did a good job last year to expand the demographics of Spo-fans to include more women, Gauls, and Yokai. ‘

Snorri Sturlson the 23rd –  ‘I would like to go hunting with him sometime. ‘

Slater-Wotan – ‘He has a knack for making strangers immediately.’

Oscar ‘Bunny’ Jarl – ‘By the gods, is he still around? I thought we fired him and hired that guy at “Going Gently”?  ‘

Walter Cnut Fafner–’ He’s a nice Norse; please don’t feed him buns and things.’ 

Herbert – ‘Harmless, if not roused up. By the way, who is this John Gray fellow?’


With the report card was a renewal contract, so I guess they were satisfied – or they couldn’t get hold of John Gray.

Along with the review and the contract I got a list of lofty goals they wish me to achieve in the next twelve months. They want more photos of cats – lots of them. Entries about food and my personal shenanigans are strongly recommended – especially if they have cats. And I am supposed to achieve two million visitors by 2022 so frequent flyer Spo-fans like Anne Marie and Old Lurker need to stop by twice daily. 

There’s a lot more but never mind. Here’s a cat photo: 

No cats were harmed in the pillaging of photographs.

*8 February.
