I have traveled HWY 287 between Denver and Dallas many times with my daddy’s aunt when she was off from school during summer breaks, but mostly the rides were from our farm to church, school or grocery shopping nearby my hometown of Clarendon, Texas.
The highway itself was built with gravel taken from one of my daddy’s farms near a place called Hedley. He originally bought what was known as “the old Mann place” so he could run Galloway cattle there, but with trespassers always leaving the gates open when they came to shoot quail, he had a hard time keeping his cattle contained. Neighbors would call and say, “Your cows are out again.” Or they would call to complain that our bull had knocked down one of their chicken pens.
Today’s Blogging 101 assignment should bring newbies like me face to face with our deficiencies. Like others, I know that the CSS option is good for personalizing the appearance and feel of my blog, but I fear it. How about you? A cheater link that looks promising is simply called TextFixer.com. Perhaps this offers yet another crutch, and some of us old dogs need crutches.
Today’s post required a bit of research and I goofed part of it. I must make one very important apology.
I said: SAPPY AS A TREE posted an article entitled Dear Miss Alcott. I feel connected to that writer. Forgive the bad grammar, but she is me. Do you ever feel that way about some stranger you meet online? She is a much younger lady than I, but her interests and her ideas mirror many of mine. She has another blog called WRITE OUT OF DARKNESS. Be sure to read that one too. I would elaborate, but why should I steal your joy in discovering her?
This evening I found out that Sandi has the blog WHAT OFT WAS THOUGHT and not the WRITE OUT OF DARKNESS as I stated. That lovely blog is authored by Terri. I cannot imagine why or how I mixed up those two, but it happened.
