Yesterday it was Blogs now comments.
There are times in our lives, that timing and circumstance causes us to CRY or laugh ourselves silly. After my blog on reading blogs was posted I was surprised at how fast the comments came. And then I read these two. Most of you know Paula was featured in the one children’s book I have written, “TOBY”. She was also the inspiration for the main character in the book. At the time she allowed me to publish some of her poems in the book I had never met her.
We have since met her and also John her mate. Our boys Mark and Jack were with us and we had a good time at a grill close to their home. Paula is as sweet in person as on her blog. This comment cracked me up!
I still would be lost without a clothes line even though I don't use it much. My mama always taught me to hang underwear on the line behind the one with sheets so the underwear doesn't show, Humm now I'm thinking neighbors might think we don't wear any. lol
I was getting over that, when I noticed another alert. Yeah, another of my ‘girl’ friends. Jean. Jean is another I have followed in the blogging world and one that we were fortunate to meet. We had dinner with Jean and Grover in Southern Alabama. She too is a breath of fresh air, a ‘real’ person. Probably the most energetic person I have ever met, pound for pound. She and Paula are good looking seniors and both have a great sense of humor. So I smiled, just thinking of her face when she smiled at Paula’s comment.
I have a reel clothes line on one of the sheds I have reeled out and hung sheets in the pass (I like the smell of fresh aired sheets, but that has been quite a while since I have done that. I don't have the time and energy now. I had to smile at Paula's post about the under wear. Its coat weather again up here in Alabama, but it won’t last long. Take care.
Both Paula and Jean are mothers. I just know their children are ‘cool’ like their mom’s. I know Jean’s daughter Sheila is, we had the pleasure of meeting her in the Raleigh/Durham area of NC. Sheila is the one who puts on her dancing shoes for snow, and invites Shirl to join.
This is also my way of saying thanks for all the comments. I am surprised at the number of times my blog has been read. Most of all I am humbled that anyone takes time to comment. I do appreciate each one I know it does take that extra effort. The ones mentioned are just a sample but you know how it is, on many posts, someone will either intentionally or unintentionally hit you with great wit or a gem of wisdom, I love it.
I think we all are seeing the writing on the wall, Blogging is slowly being replaced by FB, but I will enjoy it until someone turns off the lights.
ps: If I remember right, both the girls mentioned have pickup trucks. They tough! They will be taking care of their kids, when the kids are in a nursing home.
