Blame it on Cate, she’s a good influence on this old man and a better friend I couldn’t wish for in this lifetime. She still laughs at my corny jokes and war stories.

Wishing you a wonderful day and rest of week filled with happiness, joy, and smiles.
It is indeed a pleasure to read and share your talent with others, I'm working to become less selfish and greedy ));<))

I see you’re into ancient writings. Some of my first tweets after I realized I was talking to myself. In the beginning I had locked my account out of ignorance, kept wondering why no one ever commented or tried to follow me or talk to me. And then someone send a subtweet with my @ so I could read it. I felt absolutely ancient and soooooooooooo stupid. Now, I’m still ancient but not stooooooopid anymore. ))))

You’re so funny. Twitter has a vault of my old stuff too. Once in a while when someone finds it, it’s like a lost treasure of words. Thanks George. X
Enjoy family & weekend. 🙂

TY. Indeed, it’s like, “Did I really write that?” I’ve forgotten some of that stuff, put it on back burner when I found Tumblr and WP, Twitter and Favstar, that is.
I still keep in contact with a few old Twitter friends who mentored me when I first got started, some are long gone, found real lives and I was so happy for them. Others post here and there, infrequently. I was happy with 100 followers, it was easy, now after 300, it became a job 2 keep up, so I didn’t. I made a list of my main ppl, and check it now and then or if someone mentions me, then I’ll spend a bit there, but there’s only so much time away from my Kiddies and Clan that I will cut out. Nap times, I read some days instead, unless they’ve worn me out. Heck, not getting any younger, me that is.
👌(͠≖ ͜ʖ͠≖)👌


Heck, I lost my years ago, I’m running on flashbacks

On a normal day, I deal with 4 adults, 7 kids and one old bearded crazy fellow in my bathroom mirror. Unsocialable fellow, not a word in over 18 mos.
ooops, forgot, that's me and I'm mute.

Wishing you a wonderful day and weekend filled with happiness, joy, and smiles.
