Hi, folks. Apparently, it has been 1 1/2 years since I said anything on my blog. This hiatus might have gone on forever had I not been challenged by my grandnephew, Callum Sobey Cooke, to start writing again. Callum will be fifteen in a few weeks; I will be eighty-three in August. It invigorates me to think that I might have something to say in which he would be interested.
So here goes.
I don't expect to be writing any long essays. Rather, I hope to go on my blog on a fairly regular basis just talking about whatever's coming into my mind at the time. I hope I can inspire somebody; at the very least, I may entertain a few of you. I have to be tough-minded in listening to your criticisms. In the past, I reviewed a movie only to find that somebody who had better knowledge of the history involved did not find it a very good film. Then I reviewed a book which I clearly did not like and did not finish. Somebody quite close to me decided to read the book and read it right to the very end, apparently enjoy ing it a great deal.
We have a new carpet in the hallway here Caroline Place, my retirement residence. If I do say so, it looks rather sharp and I'm rather proud to be living here. I am now in my eighth year, so I guess I should be proud. Well, so much for that comment!
Let me get back you when I figure out how to post this and think of something more interesting to say.
