Go ahead, scrape me off your shoe, I can take it! I got along without you before I met you, I can do it again now!

(Dedicated to some I knew, whether male or female)
This poem may or may not continue to be revised; if you only read it once, that may be enough for you. Still, some revisions will occur without warning.

I don't care if I am an Old Fart these days. I might lose half my friends for saying this, but I am glad that LOL is a phrase that is always abbreviated. I say that because it's such a goddamn stupid and uninspired kind of remark that I figure it's better to not spell it out and to get it over with as quickly as possible! What kind of moron thinks it is shorter to type "LOL" than to type "HA"? Why do you all have to be so weird? There, now I've lost the other half of the people I know.
On January 18 in the post, HOBGOBLINS, I worried whether I'd ever remember to replace the bulb for my bedroom night light. Praise Gosh, It's just the kind of bulb we all used to use in the "big" Xmas tree strings, though it's not colored, and it fits in the bottom portion of a regular lamp. I finally remembered the other day! I had to buy a package of four of the tiny buggers, but it was less than $3. It's great to have the night-light back. Though I have a lot of flashlights, I no longer need to hunt one up in the middle of the night or to knock over lamps as I grope around blindly--I am a free man again!
Yeah, I'd forgotten about "fussbudget"! That would be a good thing to call someone that I was in some sort of conflict with! Too bad, though, I can't think of anyone that it applies to just now. Except the obvious--guess I'll have to use the mirror.

It's been a long time since I said much about Blogger over here (as opposed to what's in my "Most Frequent Blogger Questions". Blogger has been working with this new feature in their "Blogger in draft", but now the feature, "Export/Import" is available in YOUR blog (if you have the orange icon). For many of us, it may still be "new", but in any case this is an advance.

It seems I've lost all my friends sometimes,

While answering questions in Blogger Help Group (BHG) just now, I was thinking about all the treasure or credit I must be piling up in heaven or whatever you call the after-life, until it dawned on me that there's probably not all that much credit involved!

|No Further Use Being Frank|
Look around, there ain't
If you're a new fan here and don't want to read all 1800 posts, I suggest that after you read the most recent ones, you click on the label for Pretty Good! I hate to admit it, but many of my best posts were written pretty far back. I guess I've been falling apart for years, and I wish it wasn't so, but here I am and I'm not as good as I used to be!!!

|(They Just Start To Smell That Way)|
I don't know how often I get nostalgic--every six months, every two years--about various periods of my blogging over the past six years and the different people who have shuffled through each. There's hardly anyone who's lasted from the beginning since I have always been pretty quick to decide that some people were no longer my cup of tea. Of course, that's not to say that I didn't bore the shit out of some blogger pals and get "dumped" myself!
