How many people out there will remember my first post, coming up now.
Introduction to Daily Gaggle March 23 2005.
Good morning to you all on this wet and windy day on the Central Coast of N S W Australia.
This blog is not intended for the overheated super educated persons, whose main intent is to impress us with their glossary of alternate words and expressions which tend to become meaningless to normal average people. I will not be impressed by inane one word stupid comments. You may use clear precise philistinic grammar. but keep it readable, for the masses. Overdone obscene statements may be deleted.
Well, the rules remain the same but not the weather pattern, in fact the highest midday temp this past eight days peaked at 37C averaging out at 35.5C, Remember this is nearly a month into Autumn (Fall).
Looking back over posts in the archives, some would qualify for a re-run, I may do this when experiencing a bout of idleness which is happening only too often, this problem comes with age but I am thankful for my good mobility and faculties, when I see those associates of my era wobbling around with a not too with it expression.
As for five years of blogging, friends and foes have come and gone, the few remaining regular long standing visitors (Commenter's)remain the soul of the blog. Sadly all was going well with the Nth American blog scene until I racked up an army of Gun Loving dissidents opposed to my Anti Gun stand, The Status Quo remains.
Over the past few months it has been a sort of revealing exercise with unknown relatives alive and deceased plus friends from half a century back popping up from nowhere. This has spurred on my son David to search deeper into family records, with surprising results, particularly one piece of family records produced by my newly acquired beautiful niece which has opened the inevitable Can of Worms, although many people have laid claim to my status many times in a derogatory manner, they may well be correct if that morsel of black and white print is given a public airing, but of course I shall deny it.
And for relatives who are now thinking that I am a right thingy ( must not use that word until confirmed) For not joining 'Face book' I apologise if any offence caused. and for those relatives who take the time and effort to communicate one way or another thank you. and for some of my Oz rello's who only communicate around Birthdays and festive hand out periods, more regular calls may prevent me lapsing into 'Old Timers' and forgetting all together. And for our prodigal 'S', we love you still and hope you are happy in your surroundings where ever you are and who ever you are with, There is no need to communicate or return home as we are at present in a state of Peace and tranquility..
My best regards to everyone. LJB, aka Vest.
