Hello Everyone. Sarge was kind enough to turn Mr Dell over to me for one post.
I wanted to take a minute to thank all of you in Blogville.
I may ramble a bit here, but I absolutely have to get this out in a post.
My Mom started blogging in Aug of '08. You all know her as Frankie Furter's mom, Lana. I was surprised at first because she is not a tech person. Not a big fan of email, cell phones, etc. She instantly loved it. I am not a tech person either. I hadn't owned a PC since the mid '90s and my cellphone is from 1996. No need for a puter since I didn't email, don't facebook, etc. In the Fall of 2010, Mom gave me a blog for Sarge. She created it and set it all up because I was enjoying her blog stories so much. I started taking my hubby to the library about twice each week to create a few posts and read a few. I was instantly hooked and surprisingly, so was my husband. We were both having too much fun to pack it all in at the library with their PC's. Blogville was so enjoyable to us both that in January of this year we shelled out $600 to buy Mr Dell and then rearranged our living area so that it is the center of our household. Just for the dogblog. I think people thought I was crazy for not having a PC in forever, then were sure I was crazy for buying one just for the dogblog. I don't care. That's exactly what happened, and why.
Along with not being a tech person, I'm really not a very sociable person either. I have my husband, whom I adore, my parents, whom I also adore, and Sarge, whom I also adore. I have a very small circle of friends and co-workers whom I care very much for. I am a homebody and do next to no other socializing. Except for one thing. This blog. My hubby and parents, Sarge, a few friends, Sarge's blog. This is the absolute truth. We moved a family antique to be able to hang Sarge's tapestry so that it is above Mr Dell right in the middle of our house. That's how important this all is to us.
I'm rambling and not getting to my point. This blog shouldn't fit my life at all, but other than a few people and Sarge, it is most of my life. Weird. I hadn't really thought much about this until the past weekend. Watching Blogville react first to Tucker's loss of his kitty, Scotsmad's loss of Kendra and especially the tragedy for the Houston Pittie Pack has effected me. Sadly, we often lose beloved furiends in Blogville, but this is different. I don't need to detail all of the specifics, you are all following them too. I can't think of any other group that would act so fast and on such a large scale. I know we hear about occasional other good deeds in our world, but this is different.
Okay, really too much rambling here. My point is that I want to thank all of you. I need to thank all of you for being such a positive part of my life, my husband's life and my Mom's life. The humor is so wonderful. The adventures are so fun to follow. The scenery and nature where many of you live is so fascinating to me. The dramas and sorrows that happen are touching to me. The creativity and talents are amazing to me. I am totally entertained by everything I find in Blogville. I am totally inspired and stunned by everything I find in Blogville. I care more about what happens with Blogville than most other things around me. I try to describe this all to my friends and co-workers and I know they sort-of get it. Some even follow us. But, I'm not sure I can come close to really explaining it to someone who isn't in it like we are. I'm pretty sure I'm not explaining this very well right now either. I hope you all understand this mess of a post. I love my life exactly the way it is and Blogville is a big part of that. It adds even more joy to my life. I live a quiet life, but I'd love to have Santa's Sleigh so I could zoom around the planet and meet every single person and pet that has been involved in this. All of you. I wish -really, really wish- I could meet all of you. Basically, please just know that I am thanking you all for being such an important, positive and big part of my life. Thank you for that.
Sending my love and appreciation to all of you.
