Three years ago today ....

.... there was this post.

I owe my start to my youngest son Andy. I was reading his blog and thought "This seems like fun!" And it was.

I didn't have a clue as to what I was getting into !

I looked back at some of my first posts and thought " Did I really write this?".

I have learned to handle pictures much better. My early posts were really a mangled mess.

But I feel I'm learning and improving and hope to continue as long as my mind will let me. My Mother, rest her soul, was in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's. I'll be 61 in a couple weeks and I sometimes wonder about myself. My memory seems to be slipping away. I'll be 61 in a couple weeks and I sometimes wonder about myself.

Seriously, I have really enjoyed the blogging scene and making all the friends. Even though I have only actually met a couple of you in person, everyone seems like old friends and family. And it seems like new ones pop up almost every day.

My goal for this winter is to get my cards more organized so I can find cards that you need and hopefully trade them for ones I need. I also need to get better want lists written up and I would like to post a little more often. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions on how to make my blog better or more appealing, please feel free to comment ! You won't hurt my feelings.

So I want thank all of you who may read this, and hope that you will continue to do so. I also hope to win over some new ones in the coming years.

Keep collecting, posting and spreading the word that this hobby is NOT just for kids but we do need to get back the interest of the younger set. We need to show them how much fun it can be, so the hobby will continue to prosper and grow.

Enough of this rambling for tonight, us old folks need our rest!

Good night and God Bless .


  1. Congrats on three years and counting! One of the nice things about our blog community is that I don't feel alone being excited about collecting cards at age 50+.

  2. Whoo hoo! Congrats. Keep up the good work.

  3. Glad to you have part of the blogging family! And, you're right: lots of the folks we've come to know feel like old friends even if we've never met.
