June 1. A good day to fulfill a New Year’s Resolution to start a blog, Hm? Actually, at a Memorial Day barbecue (yesterday, for you calendar-challenged people), a friend was sort of random: he goes, “Laura, you should blog.” After a short conversation about ME, and a LONG conversation about WordPress, well, here I am.
This same barbecue was a spontaneous throw-together some friends had, and it just happens my daughter became engaged the day before; so… we went. In retrospect, it may have been somewhat gauche to announce a wedding engagement on Memorial Day [Okay, gauche: lacking social grace, sensitivity, or acuteness; awkward; crude; tactless]
Truth be known, I am one of the many who are truly grateful for the bravery and sacrifice shown by soldiers who have died that we can enjoy this republic known as AMERICA. And I’m glad I live here.
And I’m glad to have a little home here at WordPress.
