my way...

My way...

This is my 99th post. The eve of my 100th. In 10 months that isn't a lot of posts. Nevertheless, it is a milestone for me. By an odd twist of fate, my 100th will coincide with my birthday. So, I have two reasons to celebrate.

I'd like to use this opportunity to say a few things then.

There aren't many things that I'm proud of in this life, but this little blog is one of them. I don't know how much longer it will last or what the future holds for me. Still... [to quote Sinatra]...

Iíve lived a life thatís full.
Iíve traveled each and evíry highway;
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets, Iíve had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.


Iíve loved, Iíve laughed and cried.
Iíve had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that;
And may I say - not in a shy way,
No, oh no not me,
I did it my way.

So far:
-I have only posted when I felt I had something to say.
-I never deleted a comment.
-I never banned anyone.
-I have answered each comment left to me individually.
-Ever since I became more accustomed to blogging, I started including my commenter's photo in my response. I had never seen this done before. I thought of it and did it. By including the commenter's [you, in this case] photo in my response I place it next to mine. I did this because I wanted all of you who comment on my blog to see yourselves next to me. To feel like I am talking to you. To show each of you just how grateful I am that you spend a few minutes with me and leave me a word, a smile, a kiss, a feeling...

And with that I will wipe a sole tear that flows from my eye and give you my warmest smile, my gentlest kiss, but most of all something that is already yours...

a piece of my heart.

So sweet! Congrationlations on your upcoming 100th post! Its a milestone in blogland. lol. I haven't quite figured out how to insert the person's blog, but I'm certain I will. I have never deleted a comment, post, or banned a person. Although now that I think back on things, perhaps I should have? lol. Hope to read many many many more posts!

Your practice of including a pic of each of us is special. I love it and have wanted to ask how you do it, yet... I also don't want to know.

I have thought of a song for your jukebox, but I need to find a cassette player in order to transcribe the words. I thought of this song the first time I saw the title of your blog. That is what drew me in! It's likely that the singer/songwriter is unknown to most, but she was may favorite for a long time. Her words, sound, and style seem innocent, but her lyrics are packed with wisdom.

This is just a snippet of the song to be played in your jukebox.

"Forgive me if I make no sense and laugh like loon.... I'm dancing on the dark side of the moon!"
