I worried about my synapses snapping after I retired. Would I become one of those slow speaking, irritatingly nice old people. The ones that talk to all salespeople and cashiers when you are waiting for your turn. Ack! (That’s mostly for the nice part!)
I didn’t want to exert myself too much (no push ups for me!) so I picked something I enjoy doing…like writing. I would write to keep myself fresh. Would it work?
It’s five years later. I don’t know if it made a difference in synapse snapping but it made a difference in my life.
There are tons of people I’ve met (metaphorically) through blogging. Some of them I know better than my next door neighbors. Most of them!
People are willing to share the damnedest things. Me too. I laugh. I snort coffee through my nose (you know who you are).
On August 31, this blog will have survived five years. That is no small thing. Most of the bloggers I started with have long since stopped. Many have cut back.
Yeah, sometimes it gets old but just when I think I have written about everything I know, someone does something really stupid and I have to write about it (I’d be in blog heaven if I was a political blogger!).
It’s all about the readers though. Just like anything else, it’s more fun to interact with people. I appreciate every single comment and like I get. I have learned so much from all of you.
Sure, occasionally I think you are crazy but isn’t that what friendship is all about? You make me feel normal! Who knew that there were others who preferred animals to people.
Thank you for keeping my brain snapping! Thank you for taking the time to comment! Thank you for being you!
