Meet some more of my readers

Since not everybody reads the comments on my blog, I'm sharing what these readers had to say.
 Sherry said.. OK: I'm a long time reader that does not comment on blogs much, but I love to read about 50 of them, I love your style and your down home, say-it-like-it-is attitude, love the stories and I can relate to almost all of them.......hugs, Sherry  
It's good to meet you, Sherry.  Thanks for your words of encouragement.
 Rural Rambler said...Good Morning Donna! I am a regular reader here. I am not always silent :) I enjoy reading about you and your husband's plans to retire and your bike trips. Oh and I just enjoy all your posts really. I found YOU through MY sitemeter. And your right, embarq has us living some places I have never heard of!
I am conflicted about sitemeter. It kinda creeps me out and actually keeps me from going to some blogs. Not just sitemeter but all the counters and locators. No privacy if I want to come back here a hundred times in one hour or stay here for three.
I have a Nook and I love it. Still like library books and buying books but it sure is convenient out here in the boonies!  
Sitemeter needn't keep you from visiting certain blogs.  If you want to remain anonymous, instead of clicking on the link to the blog, right-click and choose the option "open link in incognito window".  It will still tell your operating system and your IPS, but location and other information will be "unknown".
 Lucy said...I am not new but have not been coming in until a few months ago. I like your entries so I keep coming back
Yes Lucy, I visit your blog occasionally, and I have it listed on my sidebar.
Nancy said...I read regularly and have for a long time. I normally leave comments as nerves05 but my name is Nancy, I speak every now and then. I enjoy reading your blog and is one of the first i open everyday. I don't remember how i stumbled upon your blog but i read it once and been coming back every since. I live in Florida. Never been up north ever. But i'm a country girl. Most folks don't think florida is country. but it is. It's not all beaches, bikinis and fast lifestyles and transplants. I'm a true floridian born and raised who lives in and loves the woods. Which is why i love your blog. Your simple easy going life style appeals to me. Believe me when i say that it's a true complement.
I love animals. I have hogs, chickens, dogs so your stories are interesting to me. I love food and gardening so i like hearing about that as well. And i love to hear about you and Cliff, just hearing about how you guys, enjoy each others company is just wonderful.
I'm 37 i'd like to think myself and my hubby will be the same way in another 20 years.
So thats my introduction and how and why i hang around :-)  
Nancy, I remember you from way back, but now I know where you live and something about your lifestyle.  Thanks for this.  Cliff and I visited Florida once to go to a tractor show!  The state is a little sandy for our tastes, but I've found that when you are born and raised in a certain part of the country, it's home sweet home.
Forty Pound Sack said...Hi Donna - I visit your blog often but this is my first comment to you. I honestly can't remember how I found you the first time but I, too read your mother's story and loved it. It made me think of my own mother, who is busy trying to untangle the roots of her family tree. I'm pretty good at snooping on the net, so once in a while I get to help her search someone out. I have a 99% success rate, so far, so hopefully she's let me continue helping.
I love your stories!
I have a cousin who is doing genealogy on both hers and her husband's families.  It exhausts me to see how much research she has done.  I don't have the patience, but I certainly enjoy seeing the fruits of her labors.  I'm sure my mother would be thrilled to know how many people are enjoying her story.  She was a great story-teller, and as a child I loved to hear about how things were "in the olden days".  
If anyone else wants to step up and share, feel free; I love hearing from all of you, and I imagine my other readers do too.

You know I have been a reader for a while. I love learning about your country life style and reading about the animals. You and Cliff keep me entertained!

Nance In CA. said...

We go back a few years to the late 90s. I don't know if you were even 'blogging' then. I met you in the AOL Christian 50+ chat room. Had the pleasure of attending a Chat Room reunion in MO. to meet you in person for the first. Must say I have enjoyed getting to know you. And reading your,now FAMOUS, blog. Your ability paint a picture with your words is an awesome gift. Whether it be in a Poem or a Song...there's always a visual impression. After visiting your farm....I now feel like I'm 'there' when you post pictures and talk of things around the place. Thank You Donna (and Cliff)for the years of great entertainment you have provided in word and pictures. Take care my friends. Nance in CA

Hi Donna! My name is Sue Ann and I live in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. I live approx. an hour away from where your sister stays while she is in Texas. I have been reading your blog and your daughter's blog for quite some time now. I believe it was after Mandy passed and it was through Sugar's blog.
