Hijacked by Google

I've been on a family vacation the last couple of weeks and wasn't able to post because each time I typed in blogger.com/start, a thing from Google would pop up saying I wasn't at my usual address and that I needed to verify it was me. That was frustrating because I have an aol address tied to this blog, not a gmail address. I guess Google is trying to take over the world. Anyway, I am back home now so Google has stopped bothering me.  

Had a good time on my family vacations, especially with my 10 month old grandson' He is not quite crawling but moves on his belly pushing his arms and legs. My daughter calls it his Army crawl. And a three-year-old nephew was very cute. Wanted to hold Uncle's hand as we walked around a zoo and when he went to the ocean to fill his pail with water. Seemed to be afraid the waves would knock him down if he wasn't holding my hand. Once he got the pail filled, he would run back to the sand without needing his hand held. So cute..

Anyway am now back and starting the sixth year of my blog My fifth anniversary of my first post was five years ago on June 28, 2009.

I've had a great time here, met some wonderful people, including my good girl. I don't get as many comments or page views as I once did but maybe I haven't done a good job of posting enough.\

Anyway, want to thank PK who set the blog up for me originally and all the bloggers I've met here. Some of the bloggers have left in the last five years but we continue to get newcomers and welcome them all. May this continue to be a nice neighborhood of like minded folks.

    1. Yes, they grow up so quickly. Told my daughter and son-in-law to take a lot of video to remember these days.

  2. I was talking about you to a friend this morning - were your ears burning? I said I hadn't heard from you in a while and I needed to check on you. I saw the paddle headboard your girl posted and I just loved it.

    Congratulation on your anniversary! I alway enjoy the articles you post about, but I often don't come back and comment. I know I love the posts about you and your girl - those are the ones that bring me in. I really love that you are here.

  3. Happy Blogaversary!
    I sometimes think that blog years are like dog years. Blogs often seem to come and go so fast. Five years is a respectable milestone!

  6. Happy Anniversary!!

    So glad you had a great time with your family.

    I may not comment often (and I should), but I do read every article you post. In fact, some I pass along to Master. Usually with a comment that would favor me - haha.
