OMG! Look at me. I’m Blogging!!! It wasn’t too long ago that I thought al Blog was a typo (you know….log with a B in front….just a slip of the finger)…now I have my very own Blog – let the bells ring out and the banners fly – I have officially moved into this century.
I had never considered blogging because I thought that was for Celebrities and “the like”. Believe me…..I am no Lady Gaga….with recent hip surgery and a gold-plated wheel chair to tell you about. However….I have been known to tell an amusing tale from time to time so I’ll be sharing those with you, as well as any interesting little tidbits I come across.
I’ve also been known to be a bit long-winded so I promise you here and now that I will try and keep these blogs fairly short so as not to scare off any of my potential readers – are you called Bloggers or is that what I am now?
My friend Melanie suggested I do this – so I have her to thank for this added “outlet” for my verbal diarrhea. I thought it would be very appropriate for my first blog to share with you, something she shared with me. Take the time to read through the following – it’s extremely clever and hilarious to boot! Check this out:
