Granny Get Your Gun!

I've been absent in the last few weeks from the blogging scene - both as a poster and as a reader. Things have just piled up and I've been getting that old familiar treading water feeling but hopefully the next week should be a better one and I should get back to regular postings.

Having said that I did see that one of my blogbuds has just had an anniversary. My Texas darlin' Yellowdog Granny has been at this blog thing for five years. Five years - that's a hell of a long time in the blogosphere. So for five years she's been giving us the news and her views from West, Texas. She's been making me laugh - thank god for Monday morning Stumbles; cry - I still miss Annie though Dexter has become one of my favorite cats; think - her views on life and her experience gives me a new perspective on my American cousins; and just damn well have a good time - where else would I have found out about Skunk Eggs?

I came to YDG through Sling when I was visiting over at his Domain and I saw this "dame" making irreverent comments. "Hey you can't write that on the internet," said I. So I went over and found out not only could you write that but a whole lot more. That would have been almost three years ago now and I don't think I've missed a post since.

Now if someone had ever told me I'd become friends with an oft-married, gun-toting, ass-kicking"dame" from West, Texas I'd have checked what was in that brown bag they were guzzling from. But that is one of the joys of the Internet and blogging - you find people who, despite seemingly wide differences, you have a lot in common with. You find people who have passion and compassion.

You find people that you are glad you've met. And that my darlin' YellowDog Granny would be you.

Big old bunch of Baci Cara - auguri e complementi. Here's to five times five more!

You know what I love about Yellowdog?..I'll tell you what I love about Yellowdog.
There's never any pretense at who she is,or what she thinks,so you never have to do any mental filtering to understand where she's coming from.
Nice to see you out and about in Bloggertown!
..don't you have work to do?
