I can add a new addiction to my list of temptations this year.
I’ve become hooked on the internet. The first thing I do each day is log on and rack my brain about something to write about that might interest anyone other than myself. Then I post my inane blogs and answer e-mails from my cyber friends – some I know, and others I have not a clue where they live or even if they are male or female in some cases. (Robin – you are one I enjoy hearing from, but what’s yer gender, honey?)
But hey, this addiction won’t make me fat or stupid (I hope). It doesn’t cost me anything other than a small monthly fee which I would have paid anyway to perform my on-line banking tasks. So what’s the harm if it keeps me out of trouble.
Our readers come up with better stuff than I do….
This in from Tom regarding new years resolutions to try one new thing each month:
“That’s some good resolutions. I’ve resolved to visit and explore a new place in MS every month this year. My first place is going to be Holly Springs. Antebellum homes; confederate cemetery; museum; Phillips Grocery; Graceland too…..Then in Feb. someplace in the Delta. Maybe Clarksdale. I’ll go sit in the Ground Zero Blues Club, sipping something cool and think about you training for a 1/2 marathon. Whoo-Hoo, it’s going to be a good year.”
I liked this idea so much I may make it my February adventure. I may visit Graceland – can you believe I’ve never been there?
And from Jane:
“I did the regular pot of peas and cabbage etc. for our dinner last night but added two of your recipes to the line-up. My entire family thanks you for the black-eyed pea cakes and the cabbage casserole recipes! They were absolutely delicious, especially the pea cakes. Jimmy informed me that he would be expecting them next year and a few times between now and then. Thanks for sharing.”
This in from Huleeta:
“The trouble with life is there’s no background music. Her definition of consciousness: That annoying time between naps.” She sounds like a true deluded diva.”
