A comment in yesterday's post helped me to remember something that happened many years ago, almost forty, to be exact.
My son asked for a cookie one afternoon; he was about 3 at the time. I was busy, so I told him to go to the cookie jar and get one. He returned in tears; explaining that the jar was empty.
I said......"I'm sorry sweetie, you need to have a talk with Daddy and ask him not to eat all your cookies."
With great wailing and sobbing, he said..."I did, Mommy, but he can't be trusted!"
Mr. kenju has never met a cookie he didn't like - or a piece of pie or cake or ice cream or any dessert you can imagine. Yesterday afternoon, my son called to check on us. I told him that I had baked three pies, and who they were for. He said I ought to hide my half of our pie, or I'd never get any of it. How sad is that? He knows his dad.
I devoted an hour tonight to signing up to "follow" some more blogs and got down through the "O's". I'll be around to you soon, if I haven't already. Some of you haven't downloaded the widget that will allow "followers" to show up in your sidebar, and I'm sure some of you never will. No matter. I am finding that it is quick and easy to be able to see new posts from my feeds from the Blogger dashboard. I discovered that at least two blogs won't let me sign on as a follower, because they don't allow RSS feeds. Naomi and Helen......that's you! I thought you should know.
