Summertime and the Blogging Is Easy
I got an e-mail from my friend TS Elmwood earlier today. TS is into The Weather.
She wanted to make sure I was reading the Tom Skilling weather blog. I do read it, and I had seen the story she mentioned in her e-mail, about how hot and dry it was out west. I called her to discuss.
“Weren’t those great numbers? A hundred and ten degrees, with a dew point below zero, and like one percent humidity.”
It was fairly dry here the other day, but for us that means a dew point down in the forties.
“I hope you got out and enjoyed it.”
I mowed the lawn, front and back.
“That’s not what I mean. Are you still walking?”
Not as much as I should. I got a pedometer recently, but I do not think I have gotten past about five thousand steps in a day.
“I told you that moving out to the suburbs would do that to you.”
I know. When I lived in the city, and did not own a car, I would walk everywhere.
“Now you sit inside and blog.”
Are you saying that I should get a long cable, and take my computer outside?
“Yes, that’s exactly what I’m saying, you dope. How is the blog going?”
OK. I did get my first comment the other day, and it was from one of my favorite people.
“And that would be…”
Amy Rigby. She’s a singer / songwriter, and I have all of her cd’s. I left a comment on her blog, and she returned the favor with a nice, encouraging comment on mine.
“It is nice to get encouragement, isn’t it.”
TS had to go out with her kids, so we said goodbye.
But before I forget, let me repeat, it is nice to get encouragement. So in my next post, I want to thank some people…
