I don’t know what I’m doing. I am a very techie person, but I usually don’t reblog my own posts. I tried to “Copy a Post”, and I kept getting a new post page, which was blank so I didn’t really think it was worth copying.

I suppose I could keep typing, and make this reblog completely unnecessary because you will have lost interest – kind of like filibustering my own blog – but I apparently have to hit the “Reblog Post” button for anything to happen. So, I guess I’ll do that now. Enjoy…

“Do you really want to know?” I asked.  Because there is no going back once that question gets an honest answer.  Step over that line and part…

    When my daughter was small she used to get a letter from Santa and the elves( written by me) and she truly believed until she was about 13…then dreams were shattered by her school mates! Sad really
