I have also noticed, with a great deal of interest, that I am also getting a huge amount of hits from someone or somebodies in Brooklyn, N.Y., the number now pushing close to fifty. My curiosity has been peaked. A person doesn't just repeatedly visit a particular WEB site by accident unless they've left their computer off the hook, so to speak. So, naturally I would like to know who this person is or persons are who find my blog so alluring, if alluring is the correct descriptive. Bottom line...whether you wish to come forward and say "hello" or remain anonymous, either way I say "Thank You." My ego enjoys the daily boost.

"A two-story home in the nudist resort Caliente caught fire today. The fire appears to have started in an RV parked in the home's garage. There might be damage to the home's roof, and the fire may have gutted the garage." Seems to me that there was a great deal of speculation going on here. No one seems to know, nor apparently care, what exactly happened or to what extent was the resulting fire damage. Makes one wonder if there may have been other activities going on that were serving as a larger distraction to the main event.

I would love to meet the person or persons who formulated this preposterous policy so that I could once again unsheathe my trusty and highly reliable cast iron avenging skillet and gleefully (in the spirit of the season) "Bonk" each and everyone of them soundly across the back of their obviously empty skulls. This is so idiotic that it defines any attempt at rationalization. What could possibly be next in this head-long and maddening excursion into political correctness? Perhaps banning Santa Claus from wearing his traditional red suit for fear that some other idiot of even lesser intelligence would suggest that that color is also the color that is associated with a "red light" district. Can't you just see it? Dozens of Santas dressed in Madras?
Fortunately there have been many good citizens in Australia, who possess even a molecule of common sense, that have risen in mass objection to voice their vehement rejection of such a silly pronouncement: stating that those whom the policy is designed to protect are, after all, only children, and wouldn't (or shouldn't) have any fore-knowledge of the word "Ho" in triplicate of having or implying any other connotation but one of joyous merriment. Why am I amazed that such an explanation and leap of common sense would even require further justification?
On the other hand, should some few adventurous and perhaps amorous Mothers decide themselves to climb on Santa's lap, perhaps the restriction of Santa's in-kind remarks of apprecation might best be in order. I'm only saying. Santa...let's be careful out there.

First to recognize my blogging attempts as being worthy of a regular read was a San Antonio, Texan lady that goes by the moniker "I Am Norman." This week I was awarded "favorite" status by a gentleman who resides in Woodstock, Georgia (cool name) and who goes by the blog handle of "Coffeypot." Coffeypot's blog may be accessed by going to: http://www.johnjudyc.blogspot.com/. I haven't yet learned how to create my own list of Blog favorites. I need to do that in order to reciprocate in-kind for Norman's and Coffeypot's listing of mine. Maybe Coffeepot will send me instruction on how to do that. I'm always afraid to try anything technically new on my blog for fear it will wipe out the entire blog. "Nothing ventured, nothing gained," I suppose.
It is always rewarding to have other people, who pursue with equal enthusiasm the same interests as do you, to pronounce their appreciation for your efforts...unless, perhaps, they are accomplished axe murderers. I wouldn't want that to get out. Still, I've been told that I possess some unique writing gifts (my dear Mother being among that small, but devoted group), and being encouraged to continue in that pursuit by folks not associated with my immediate family just adds further impetuous to hone that skill. Not that I'll ever make a dime for doing so...but that would be "like work,"and where's the fun in that?
So thanks Coffeypot for the salute. You're words of wisdom have left an indelible mark on me. I too have elected to give up reading. It was getting in the way of my heavy drinking!
