I've used Bloglines to keep up with my favorite blogs for a long time; it was a great alternative to the AOL "journal alerts", which flooded my email box constantly. So when AOL J-land went belly up, I was already ahead of the game.
Some techno-wizard, though, figured out how to put all the transferred AOL blogs on Google Reader, which caused me to check it out. Wow! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Google reader.
I appreciate the effort of whoever did all the work of transferring our AOL journals here, and then putting them all onto Google Reader. Was it Guido? Anybody know?
See, my memory isn't what it used to be, and neither is Cliff's. We keep losing clothes. Seriously! Our favorite stocking cap, the one with "Alaska" on it, has disappeared. And Cliff has lost track of a pair of Carhart overalls. One of our neck-warmers was gone for awhile, but it showed up again.
When oldest grandson Arick was four years old, he was always misplacing his shoes. One time we were scrambling to find them because we had to go someplace, and Cliff asked him, "What do you suppose happened to your shoes?"
"A robber probably got them," Arick replied.
Yesterday Cliff decided Arick's robber must have been real, and he still lives nearby; what other explanation could there be for our clothes disappearing?
The thief moves my purse, too, putting it in the most ridiculous places. And hides my grocery lists.
Getting older, as I always say, isn't for the faint of heart.
