A big Thank You

I would just like to thank everyone for their kindness, and response to my latest drama.

I truly do value each and every one of my blogging friends.

It seemed so churlish of me to want to throw it all away , however I was just once again in a very difficult place. I was very sick and had a very painful back that would not allow me to even sit at the computer.

Then the final straw, once I had started to feel better My ISP just dropped out as it has a couple of times before.

I really enjoy the contact that I have with you all and am very sorry that I even thought of giving you all up. I will catch up with you all personally as soon as I can make my way round all the sites I have not read for some time. It was very reassuring to hear that people do enjoy reading my “blather.”

A special thanks to Peter for posting for me and bringing everyone up to the mark.

Want to Drive?

A young boy had just gotten his driver's permit and inquired of his father, if they could discuss his use of the car. His father said he'd make a deal with his son. "You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, get your hair cut and we'll talk about the car."

The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he'd settle for the offer and they agreed on it.

After about six weeks his father said, "Son, I've been real proud. You brought your grades up and I've observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I'm real disappointed you haven't gotten your hair cut."

The young man paused a moment then said, "You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that, and I've noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair and there's even a strong argument that Jesus had long hair."

To this his father replied, "Did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?"

Hi Dear Margaret ~~ So glad you are back my friend. I could not come to comment yesterday as my line was down
Better late than never. I especially
like the nice big font, so easy to read. I hope your back is quite better Margaret, as that can drag you down. I am having a similar problem

Hi Margaret, SO glad you ARE back... and how - good stuff, thanks.

You remind me, how many times have I felt like it was the end-of-the-world when nothing felt right, only to wake up the next day feeling really ill! It took me ages before I realised the connection, and I still forget...

Hi there, I’ve been relying on using Bloglines to do my daily rounds of the blogroll for a while now, it’s a very time saving method but it feels a bit impersonal at times, so it’s a hot Saturday, I’m gonna sit here and visit with everyone, It won’t feel any different to you but know that I chose to visit today instead of just answering an electronic reminder.
Have a good day.
