Moving along with life

Today is going to be the beginning of my telling about things in my life.

Last night was an interesting evening to say the least. We were in the process of getting ready to go somewhere for the evening. When I kept hearing a smoke detector going off somewhere in the building we live in. I went out of our apartment to try to find out what was going on. There was a very faint smell of smoke outside our apartment door. I went up the stairs to the second floor apartment and the smoke was very heavy up there. I knocked (well banged) on the door several times and could not get anyone to answer. The smoke was getting worse so I ran back down stairs and we called the landlord. (I know should have called 911) but then the lady from upstairs came down the stairs saying she had put a skillet of grease on the stove to heat up and then went in to clean her bathroom. She forgot all about the grease heating up and it caught on fire. Guess she ruined her stove, mini blind at the window. I am just thankful that we didn't even get any smoke at all in our apartment. This is the first time in our 42 years of marriage that we have been this close to having a fire where we live. To say I was scared and upset would be a major understatement to say the least. But we are no worse for the wear and hopefully nothing like this will ever happen again.

The end of an era

I think that I have reached the end of an era in my life. I have been using this blog in the past to make some extra money via doing paid posts. Well things are changing in that area so to that part of my blogging I am saying goodbye. I have to say I have some integrity about myself. I refuse anymore to put a post on my blog and to really try to do the best job possible for an advertiser only to have them want to pay me a very small and I do mean small fee.

I have decided to try to keep my blog going. To be honest I don't know if anyone out there will read my blog. But to be honest I am not sure that is all that important to me anymore. I intend to keep my blog up for myself. So if anybody out there still wants to read my blog that is great. I will welcome readers just will quite making it a job to get them.

Step it up

I really wish that Randy could somehow manage to visit a podiatrist new york city podiatrist so that he could get someone to work his his feet. Bless his heart he has really ugly feet. He has a callus on one foot that to be honest looks like he is growing another toe. He keeps kidding me about me doing something for him where his feet are concerned. But to be honest I have this thing about touching the feet of someone else. Especially when they are as bad as his feet are. Don't get me wrong, I love him just not that deeply to touch his feet. OK I love him that much but I am still not going to touch his feet. Maybe someday he will be able to visit a foot doctor and get something nice done to his feet.

Back at last

It has only been about 3 weeks that I have been offline while we were moving and with getting the cable company here to hook us up. But, I am here to tell you it feels like it has been 3 months or 3 years. I didn't realize how much I enjoy being on the internet and checking email and such. But now I realize it. I am going to try to be better about blogging. But to be honest right now there isn't much right now to comment about. Life is pretty much going to work and coming home. So I won't bore you with those details.
