Where have you been all this time?

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.


  1. Glad to hear you are doing well David! Can't wait for your next installment. Enjoy the writing process. Good to hear from you. Cheers, Mark Donovan

  2. Good to see you are blogging again, David! I send you a big hug

  3. Great to Hear from You! Trinity is NOT the Same - 'without' YOU!!! Average 'attendance' is around 40!! - Very Sad. Seems to Make sense to join the Many 'other' United Churches! A Small Group wants to 'stay' Trinity!
