My first attempt to blog (a disclaimer, if you will)

Because I've created this blog, some may believe that I think I  have the ability to write well.   Let me be the first to say,  I do not !    I just want to capture some of  thoughts and happenings in and around my life...put them in some kind of documentation so that when I am old, I will be able to look back and remember that I did actually have an interesting and abundant life.  Will this help?   Time will tell.  And time is running out. For whatever reason,  I feel the urgency,  so I decided I cannot wait  to become a good writer in order to start a blog.  I've been thinking about it for a few years and have been just too intimidated .

You see  I am married to a genius in the media world....he really is a "wordsmith".  He's absolutely brilliant with words.  And the funny thing is,  I don't think my family ever heard him speak until we were married for about 12 years.  It was something about my coffee....but that's a story for another time.   I also have a very gifted daughter in law who is an established poet.   So, even with that kind of intimidation,  (unintended of course, this is all self-inflicted, they are really kind and wonderful people) I shall plod on.   Hardly a week ever goes by that I don't think there is something worth writing down.  Either something hilarious, or conversely, something serious, that happened in the shop with a customer, or something in life outside of the shop (I understand there IS a life out there now). Life has it's ups and downs and I think those are worth capturing here.    So without further ado, and in spite of the intimidation I feel, my inadequacy with grammar, sentence structure, spelling, etc...I shall bravely press on.  Here we go:

Now that I have adequately, though not eloquently, put forth my disclaimer,  I can't think of a darn thing of interest to write.   I will have to get back to you on this.

  1. I am sure this will be an inspiring and entertaining blog. As I recall, you are seldom at a loss for stories! Way to step out of the comfort zone.
