Another Blog Bites the Dust
Saying for the Day:Tis a horrible thing to have to destroy thy own creation.
It is leave a comment Monday and I am sad.
One of my blogs will never see another comment.
I had to kill it this morning.
I loved that blog. I created it in the bathtub.
Only my best creations come there.
It was called “ The Dragon Awards” . It grew out of random blogging and the discovery that there were lot of left and right wing blogs that distorted the facts or arrogantly proclaimed lies as the truth.
So I decided to award those blogs some dragons. Red dragons for left wing blogs and blue dragons for right wing blogs.
It went well at first. I awarded a hold flock of dragons. It was really too easy.
But nobody paid attention to the dragons. I would tell them of the award and they ignored me. I made no impact.
In addition I found I didn’t have the time to keep up this blog and Personal Diatribes plus the dragon awards.
So I stopped updating the dragons.
The poor thing just sat there , abandoned by its creator and ignored by the world.
It could have drifted forever in cyber space . Seen only on a rare occasion when somebody bumped into it. It would be lonely and forgotten.
So today I did the only humane thing. I killed it.
I went to Blogger. I called it up. I hit the delete button and it was gone.
But I miss it. I do.
It had to be done. It did. It could not go on.
But I’m still sad. It was my creation. It was part of me.
Now its gone, forever.
8250 spins without a prize. Yesterday Old Hapless kept his losing string intact. He and Mrs. Hapless were 1200 points ahead with 500 points needed to end the game of canasta with his granddaughter and daughter-in-law and they still lost . The sneaky little kid kept a pair of aces in her hand with aces on the table and picked up one great deck. She had no mercy on grandpa. Its funny though Old Hapless didn't mind losing .
Well Uncle Wiggly lovers if the four year old grandson doesn't beat Old Hapless at a game of Uncle Wiggly causing him to begin a study of childhood games with no time for computing. We will be back tomorrow with "As the World Spins".
I gave in and put the word verification back. They are putting in our new furnace and I am freezing. They are also making a lot of noise. If you want to see pictures of the town where I live go to Upper Michigan and Beyond. There is a link on the side. I live just down from the old Church. The furnace is in and the heat is back on. I am thawing out. Tomorrow we go back to the box and my romances. But now I need a breathing treatment.
