I came across this little vintage Remington about a week or two ago and knew that I would use it in some way. My blogging has been sporadic in the past months. In October I got hired for a temporary position in a library. It was part-time, but the days I worked, I gave it my all. When I didn’t work, I was not energetic and I think I was experiencing the effects of a lack of Vitamin D, and (lots of rain). Well, my job is no more and I must say that I enjoyed it immensely. I will also mention, that it was an answer to a prayer I had written down on a slip of paper in 2015. God gets the glory and praise… As of today I am preparing for a trip to California. So for a bit longer, my blogging will still be sporadic. But I want you to know that, you my blogger friends, are thought of often, and in my heart there is no distance…
A little package came my way yesterday. In a world that seems to be very indifferent and troubled, my heart was touched by the kind gesture of one whom I have come to know through the world of blogging.
I collected stamps when I was a child. The opening up of my gift conjured up memories of getting stamps in the mail when I was about nine.
There are an assortment of very cool stamps.
For it is in the giving that we receive

Life began for me here in this city of Palm Springs, California in the early fifties. Over to the left of this photo where it says the Plaza Theater, is where I got one of my first jobs as a cashier. It brings back many memories of really hot days in this desert town. It was more like a quiet pueblo back then. There was no hustle and bustle during the heat of the day. My mother worked in a store right around the corner from the theater, where I would often go to spend time with her. Today, as I go down memory lane it brings me to look back at my experience here at WordPress. My first days were shaky and I was insecure as I began to share with my limited skills in writing and photography. A few years have passed now and at times I have questioned what my purpose was here and felt a bit inferior. Whenever that notion set in, it has usually resulted in giving up,or giving in to a defeatist attitude. Today, as I ponder, I look at all of the many wonderful people and animals, that I have gotten to know through each blog. They have brought smiles and inspiration my way. To you newer acquaintances I say “WELCOME” and to those of you that I am getting to know, I say”THANK YOU.” I am still learning and growing and now trying to find my way in the world of writing. I am simple in thought and in a world of plastic or paper, honesty and transparency are qualities I hope to always possess. Thank you friends for allowing me to be a part of your blogging experience.
