Some Assembly Required

Sunday, October 9, 2011


            My blogsite has been up and running for about six months, and I am having a great time with it!  I’ve learned a lot in this time, and one of the things that I’ve learned is that my readers often have a lot to say but no place to say it. Since the publication of my last blog (Bob—the Lizard), I’ve received a couple of comments letting me know that Earl and I aren’t the only incompatible spouses when it comes to working on household projects, and that really helps my feelings a lot.  I’ve heard about some of your memorable Christmas experiences, especially in the “Some Assembly Required” area.  And, yes, as I knew would happen, I have even heard from a couple of people who like lizards.
            During the next couple of months, I would love to include some of your stories in this space.  You may not consider yourself a writer, but that really isn’t necessary for you to be able to share your experiences. I would especially like to hear about your family’s traditions—Thanksgiving, Christmas,  New Years—whatever.  If they are special to you, we will enjoy reading them, so I’m giving you the venue to share those special times.  Send me what you want to share and be sure to tell me if:  (1) you would prefer to be published anonymously.   (2) it’s okay for me to edit if necessary.
            Now, listen---don’t flake out on me!  I have so enjoyed what you’ve written thus far, so let’s get those “cards and letters” (e-mails) coming in!
