Thursday Thoughts: The Latest, Greatest Blogging Tool

After last week's post, which proved that I'm just a bit out of touch with technology, my son gave me this idea for a blog post.  I told him I'd use it.


Are you tired of misplacing your quill or finding an empty ink well?  Fortunately, the latest invention--the "typewriter"--will put an end to those frustrations.  With a simple touch of a button, letters will appear on paper.  Lines advance with a quick push of the return bar.  A cheery "ding" accompanies the motion.

Typewriters will make blogging so easy!  Whenever an idea pops into mind, just sit down and start typing.   With any luck, someone will soon invent something to correct mistakes.

  4. There was nothing but manual typewriters in my high school typing class. Each mistake on speed test took 5 wpm off your total, so I wound up typing negative words per minute. Dropped the class at semester when the teacher started talking about carbon paper.

    I'm so old....

  7. Love it :)
    I've still got my first typwriter, bought from my brother when I was 14 (I'm nearly 52 now), and it still works!
    My Silver Reed is as precious to me as a writer as anything I can think of, and is always there, even if the electric goes! Lol

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
