My Blogs????Purely for giggle and grins.

  I just got through reading  Laurie and Odel's blog and it really re-inforced my intentions of why I began a blog…

When Dennis created this blog for us, I had already kept many journals …some of our RV travels , and some of just LIFE.  I printed a couple for our 3 kids and gave them as gifts… Writing for me has become a great joy, ever since I was involved in our High School newspaper as an editor.  I LOVE poetry, both reading it and writing it.  I love reading books ( paper books for me, please), and often got so involved in a novel , (usually one of those “steamy” ones), that I neglected my schoolwork (NO, REALLY..ME?)…Then,  I took a class in Creative Writing in college, and I  suddenly found myself  hooked on putting my thoughts and humor into writing… Soooo…the blog idea appealed to me as an outlet for my love of satire, humor and sometimes questionable joking.  Trust me, I can get serious,  NO, REALLY!!…but not often…and I do enjoy blogging…The key word here is “enjoy”.  At first I tried to keep up a daily blog, but after a year,  it became too much like a homework assignment (you are so right, Laurie), and I found myself trying too hard to dredge up humorous travel tales….waaaay too hard. 

About a year ago, I decided to cut my blogging down to every other day.  I did that for a while, but still found it to be more like a “job” than a “joy”…and my heart wasn’t in it… I think that’s when I realized that I should just go with my spontaneous insanity , which can be very bazaar at times…  Sooooo….now I only plop my fanny on the computer chair to blog when I  have a quirky spin on something that happened, or I am feeling the creative need to give someone a laugh, a small smile or a giggle… However, I really do prefer it to be a snot nosed teary eyed , snorting, “ ugly face” laugh..those are MY personal favorites….and if and when this blogging stuff starts becoming a “ball and chain”..I’m making a jailbreak!!

Some of Mother Nature’s creations in our backyard in the hot South sun are thriving in this 99 degree heat…These Hibiscus have gotta be the most gutsy flowers I have EVER seen, not counting a cactus flower…Just look at that pert smile, all colorful and giddy with heat..All this while I am stripped down to as little clothing as possible without getting arrested, sitting on the front porch, with 3 fans blowing on me…

…Speaking of my very lame and often politically incorrect humor, I have been know to don a few costumes….

I dressed up on St.Patty’s Day when I worked at the travel agency in the 1980’s…Luckily, my boss was Den’s cousin and she had the same sick sense of humor I did..

Don’t laugh ,those are my real ears..Nyah-Nyah

  10. Hey, if you want to sit on the front porch half naked, then by golly do it! About blogs: we read a variety of them for a variety of reasons. They are all different, and that's how they should be. Want to go daily, and enjoy it? Fine. Want to do it only when you want to do it? Fine. Want to be silly and give us snot-nosed laughs? Fine. Want to be introspective and reflective? Fine. Want to do tutorials on technical stuff? Fine. If we enjoy it, we'll stick around. If we get bored,we'll go somewhere else. Please note that we try never to miss your posts!
