An Update:

For those indulgent friends who are seeing me through this stage of what may not last, or amount to very much, or some poor wayfarin' stranger: welcome and peace be with you all. I have not managed to make the title of the blog and its web address (and original title, which cher Mimi was gracious to praise as Zen: maybe, says Henry Hankovitch, zen guitar, which is a poetry reference, PJ, if anyone gets back this far into the wilderness.

And thanks to my brother vet AZ (guess where he lives, eh?) for the beautiful header photo; I hope ya approve, man; Bunkie liked it, even ED admitted it!

Hey, Johnieb, welcome to the blogosphere! Now you have your own space to say what the rest of us are too scared/smart/mannered to say. I love being of an age that one is eligible for full Social Security benefits. It's easier to say what we mean outright. I'm looking forward to your posts!

Oh, my favoritist sweet, charming old codger has got himself a blog. Woo hoo.

Now I guess I will have to get around to starting that 12-Step Program for Bloggers.

johnieb said...

The ELP!? On MY blog!? Woo Hoo indeed!

"Old Codger", Lizabeth? I may say it myself, but I don't mean it!

There's no need to start such a program; I can quit any time I want.

Kirstin said...

Sure, JohnieB, but we don't want you to.

I'm so glad you've got a blog now!
