Brief  Story:


Have You heard about Charles Schultz, the Charlie Brown Guy, who had a string of annoying things happen to him? Like once, he waited in line for hours for a free chocolate bar only to have them run out of candy when his turn arrived.


So I realized those hilarious moments happen to all of us. I’ve been collecting them way before the internet came to be. They used to frustrate the heck out of me.  Lately, I smile; sometimes  I even laugh! Now we all have a platform where we can share.

The person who physically created and taught me how to work a blog is my 25 year old son. He’s on Facebook but I am not ready for that.

My advice to new bloggers is don’t feel pressured to post constantly. Find a rhythm that makes you feel comfortable and happy.

I nominate 4 blogs:

  1. The Life of GAACm.
  2. Jenn Reclaiming My Sanity

#79 & #80

79.  At  Walmart you notice a cashier by the garden center as you pass. So you pick up dog food, vitamins and bread. You wander back to the garden center only to find the register is closed. So you trudge across the store to pay. Finally, you hike to the other side of the store to the garden center where you parked your car originally.

80. The DJ on the radio finally plays a song you really like as you get off your car.
