This is my 200th blog post. I zoomed right by #100 without even noticing. Is it possible that I have had that much to say that I have posted 200 times just since January 7th? I guess it's true that the older you get, the more garrulous you get. And I guess the question is: Is it just talk or am I actually saying anything?
I started out telling about my kids, then my grandkids, and I went through the 30's, the 40's and the 50's in my own life, in no time flat. I could fairly hear my kids moaning, "Yes, Ma, we've heard it before." But here I was, with a blank page in front of me, and even a new audience. And I discovered that blogging is about saying what I feel like saying. If someone doesn't want to read it they can just move on to another blog. And you know what? My kids do read it. (Well, 3 out of 4 ain't bad. - My son doesn't even read his own email.)
I've sounded off about a lot of things, and I've discovered other people who feel the same way about things that I do. That boosts the spirits. And I've found some people who don't, and that's OK too, because we can still be friends. I like it! Think I'll keep at it for a while longer - probably as long as I last. I love getting up in the morning and finding friends on my computer screen. Thanks for being there.
