Astonishingly, today’s blog is Covid-free. Although, if I hadn’t been pinned down at home for hours on end, I’d probably not have gotten around to this project.
This is a selfish task, pretty much just for me. I’ve been writing this blog for years, thanks to a mentor who had brushed aside my objections and my scoffing, and convinced me to begin it. Much of it is without a doubt just day-to-day drivel, but once in a while a topic will cause me to set down some long-lost memory, or might be about an event I’d enjoy revisiting sometime.
Instead of having to do electronic forensics through years past, I create a hard-copy chronicle, using Shutterfly. (No,this is not an endorsement – that’s just the brand I happened to choose.) Now I have a book on my shelf for each year of my blogging – or would if I hadn’t slacked off. I’m currently putting together the 2017s posts, I guess I have some catching up to do. (Yay, virus!?)
Not every entry is included, otherwise each book would be the size of the Manhattan phone book (or does such a thing still exist?) and would be too pricey. But I can pull out key memories and events so I don’t completely forget my favorite cat of them all,
hijinks with the grandboys,
the arrival of the twin grandgirls,
and all the weddings, moves, and milestones.
