Something so right, that is what my blog is for me. (Please listen to the song from Paul Simon that I have here for you, I have always loved this song, but when I think of it in connection with my blog, it means even more to me.) Often when I type my post , I feel as if I am back in piano class and I am on stage here, all alone and I am so nervous that I run off the stage. I think that I might be more relaxed and more myself in my comments to others. Recently, P. from his blog, Life Ordinary www.lifeordinary-p.blogspot.com wrote of flying on KLM. (And please go to his blog and read his post, it is so funny!)
This is what I wrote and left as a comment...
Ladies and gentlemen, we are now cruising at an altitude of misery unknown in previous generations. You have been packed into this aircraft meant for many fewer passengers so as we can maximize our profits. You will be served a meal, but this is only for legal reasons and we suggest, for your health, that you ignore this gesture from a bygone time. You are advised to keep your sense of humor, and your love of mankind at all times. This flight will be over at some point but we make no claims as to the time itself. ENJOY YOUR FLIGHT!
Also, on this blog www.thechubbychatterbox.blogspot.com, Stephen asked his readers what was the wildest animal that they had ever seen. The comment that I left was this... "I once touched an elephant and posed with a lion...but not at the same time." Now, that is a true statement. It's not as exciting as it sounds. The elephant was at Zoo Atlanta, and during a children's program, we were asked if we wanted to touch the elephant. (You know I said yes.). And once, years ago, at MGM Grand at Lake Tahoe, they still had a real lion there that you could pose with for your photo. I didn't really want to do it, since the poor animal looked very drugged, but I did and even though the lion looked quite old, he still had a very powerful roar that just shook me right down to my bones!
Thanks to everyone who reads my blog and then, takes the time to leave a comment. I really appreciate it and I am grateful for each and every one. Meike, thank you so much for your great encouragement, you KNOW I would not have done this without you. www.librarianwithsecrets.blogspot.com is Meike's blog. Also, thanks to Nan from www.lettersfromahillfarm.blogspot.com
. You have such a lovely blog and have been so kind and helpful to me!
I hope everyone is having a lovely Spring, in whatever part of the world that you are in! We went to Stone Mountain on Tuesday (we had the day off), to Arabia Mountain on Thursday and then, we hope to go back to Stone Mountain tomorrow! This photo is of a very large tree on one of the trails at Stone Mountain and I just love it, even though I don't know what kind it is.
And the white flower is Mountain Laurel, and it was beautiful on the trail, it was beside a little stream, deep in the woods. Thanks again for reading my blog, time for me to curtsey and exit the stage!
