New World Odor Exceeds 500,00 Hits
Now,this is what the bigs get in a day but for this type-challenged rookie, it’s meaningful. For a blog started in January, with a couple of months off of late due to surgeries, 500k hits isn’t shabby. At least to me.
So hats off to all of you who have willingly weathered my typos, fits of temper, lapses in memory and episodic inactivity.
Please don’t consider this empty praise or obligatory gratitude. I mean it. One reason?
I’m from a large, Catholic family. I’ve always been (perhaps) the most liberal (at times radical) of the lot. At times, even though our planets were politically aligned, they’ve thought me daft, weird, obtuse, stubborn, dramatic, prone to exaggeration, off the deep end and downright anarchic. I don’t deny giving them good reason, at times, for their suspicions. We do, howerver, love one another and get together as much as we can.
I mention this because despite this familial bond, in a recent survey, I found that NONE of them read my blog. Nor does my wife or my kids, whose lives I’d willingly die to save. So, knowing that, please don’t suspect my sincerity. From the depths of my soul, thank you, one and all.
