YAH…. it’s my blogs birthday, just one short year ago I was an
innocent babe in the woods of blogland, totally unaware that over the
next 12 months my life would change quite dramatically.
Now I’m not going to
admit say that I’m addicted to blogging, but it
has certainly opened up a new aspect to my life, I now have,
(and thoroughly enjoy) a new set of friends scattered throughout
These are friends I’ve not met, but to whom I feel very close, I enjoy
their pleasures, I suffer their pains, I laugh at their humour, and I am
amazed by their wisdom.
These my dear friends are you, and you, and you, I am so very grateful
to have been granted access to your blog worlds.
BLOGGERS; We are worthy of salute!!!!
My first 3 posts,
Now I’m not going to say that my blogging has improved to any marked
degree, but it has changed, and found a little direction.
Joke of the week
holtieshouse They might be old, they might be new, they might
be clean, they might be blue, but they will be funny.
There was a couple who had been trying to start a family for
many months without success.
They went to their local GP for advice; he suggested they visit
the sexual problems unit at their local hospital.
When they arrived the doctor in charge suggested that they
start with a sperm count check on the husband.
He was given a small jar and told to bring it back the next
morning for analysis.
Next morning he reported to the doctor with his little jar.
When the doctor looked at it he said, "there's nothing
"No" said the man "I really tried, first right handed, then
"My wife had a go as well, then my mother in law came around,
she tried, teeth in, teeth out."
"But you know none of us could get the lid off that bloody jar."
Anyone that I would expect to be visiting this blogsite will know
enough about me already, but for any unwary surfers who have
wound up here accidentally;
I was born in 1936 in country Victoria, so that makes me an
"old" Mexican (from south of the Queensland border.)
Having tried marriage twice, without much success, I now live
a pretty happy life alone in Gympie
My first marriage produced four wonderful children, (so it
wasn't a total failure) so I have 4 that call me Dad 11 that call
me Grand-dad and to date 1 that will call me Great Grand-dad
when he learns how to speak.
My second marriage produced 25 wonderful years, (so it wasn't
a total failure either.)
My passions are movies and music, (mainly country, but pretty
much anything gets a go.) and my family.
(added note; And Blogging.)
My three sons live in WA, two in
my Daughter lives in country SA, so traveling plays an unusually
large part in my life.
Well so far I've pushed about 100 buttons, but there seems a
chance that I'm finally in the right spot to become a blogger,
all that remains is to think of something to blog about!
I bought my first computer about 3 years ago and after
learning to type, a comical exercise in itself, I now try to
learn something new at every given opportunity, so now it's
time to look into blogging.
I already use Picasa, so have extended that to include hello,
it seems the door is now open, if this is so I will become far
more adventurous with my next try.
