Trying to get my jock genes to kick-in. I maintain still there is something improper in the way I’m wired.
Ha! No necessarily. Everybody’s got their things that they prefer.
How very interesting. I posted a comment earlier but do not see it. Guess WP didn’t care for it.
Sorry, I was out most of the day. Got back home now and just replied to your earlier comment, sir!
All’s well, I’m presuming. WP plays some weird games, “like”wise and “comment”wise, so I never know.
I run into that same problem!
We can but persevere. Say. Your [and other’s] comments and suggestions I go “podcast” is under serious constipation. I’m looking, I’m looking. But do not hold your breath. [Mayhaps a podcast would be a way to 1) get folk to actually read [[hear]] my material, and B) understand what this old bastid is trying to get across. Prollems to overcome, but I am working on it. Sort of. Catch you later, Sir Good Dude!
That would be terrific! Looking forward to it!
Sed, “Dunt hold yer breath.” Seriously.
