i guess all news is new. or it wouldn’t be called news!
this is how it happened really.
i was having lunch with owl the other day. he had stopped by. as he
as some of you know . . . from the sidebar on the peanut, and from
pooh dropping by in one of my past posts . . . i live very, very nearby
the 100 acre wood.
it seems that this past week they were all up at the meadow, discussing
me . . . without me! (well. except for piglet. he was visiting a cousin.)
tigger, pooh, rabbit and kanga and roo were all there. oh yes. and
eyeore too. owl told me all about it. he was there too. he was the
one picked to tell me about the meeting.
“yup! she’s just like me!” shouted tigger, above his bouncing. . .
boing! boing! boing! “yup! just like me! ” boing. boing.
“i told ya.” said eyeore. “but nobody every listens to me.”
“i have noticed that she’s not spending nearly as much time reading
her book friends as she used to” said a worried kanga.
“what’s a book friend, mama?” asked little roo.
“later dear.” kanga shook her worried head.
“and she hardly has me over for huny at all” said pooh.
a very sad pooh bear. thinking about all that delicious huny.
“aw, she’s just busy” said rabbit.
“nope! she’s just like me!” shouted tigger. boing! boing!
“well. owl. you need to tell her then.” they all chimed in.
so that’s how it came to be that owl and i had lunch the other day
and he wisely told me that i was having a little too much fun with
this new peanut blog. my friends in the 100 acre wood have noticed
that i might be spending too much time . . . reading blogs, writing posts,
commenting, reading more blogs, writing posts . . . just sitting and
sitting . . . and my favorite time of year is coming up after all . . .
you get the picture.
i think they are planning an intervention !!! LOL.
as if i’m addicted or something !!! LOL.
maybe they’re right.
there are about 70 wonderful people who follow the peanut every single
day. and some are from lands far, far away. it is all just too exciting for
this simple . . . ahem . . . ‘older’ lady who is still new to it all.
the stats page says there have been 1,168 first time visitors so far
on the peanut. and that they’ve read 8,087 pages ??? what?
“i’m sorry owl! here, have some more tea.”
i just find it really hard to believe those numbers. i really do.
they’re way too big for this new little peanut of a blog.
i’m not sure i even understand all that anyway.”
i’m ‘small peanuts’ here. lol. (pardon the pun)
but . . . that part really doesn’t matter so much.
i never have cared for arithmetic. it’s kinda fun to look at, but
it’s the friends i feel i’m getting to know that means so much.
“come to think of it . . . i guess maybe those numbers might
mean there are just friends out there that i don’t know yet!”
owl sipped his tea and just sat there quietly.
“yes.” he finally said. “sometimes big egos need lots of friends.”
oh my. and i thought i knew me.
maybe he knew me better!
i munched my sandwich and listened well, to dear wise owl.
owl and i decided that i should only post on mundy’s.
excuse me. i wrote that the way pooh spells.
mondays only. that way i can have a life away from this magical
screen! and you won’t get so tired of hearing me blab on and on and
on about every little single thing, every single day. for tigger sake!
boing! boing! boing!
i’ll see you . . . well. . . i’ll hopefully still see all of you . . .
next mundy! i mean monday.
until then, some of you i’ll see on your own wonderful blogs.
you add so much to my computer-time life.
i love your beautiful pictures and thoughts on everything.
and i may not always comment. but i’m there. and lovin’ it!
boing! boing! boing!
and . . . to my little pals in the nearby 100 acre wood . . .
thanks guys for doing the intervention!
you are real friends for sure! i love you all!
even you, eyeore.
psst . . . actually you’re my favorite. but don’t tell.
