Blog Birthday and West, Texas

blog bd8candlesYesterday was this Blogs birthday. It’s been a long trip. I started on Blogger, then moved to WordPress, then got my own domain. I plan on keeping going as long as I can.

Big Explosion in West, Texas. That’s where Yellowdog Granny lives. She posted that she’s Ok. But I’m afraid we’ll find that some of her friends got hurt. She volunteered at the assisted living place near the blast. Plus it’s a very small town. Go read her post for today.

Do you remember there was a big train wreck in Japan about 10 years ago? I had a friend from Japan visiting. I took her to the airport to go back to Japan. It seems I just dropped her off and then I heard about the train wreck. I thought, “No way she’s even back in Japan yet, no chance she’s on that train”. Well, I took her to the airport, she flew to Japan, got off the plane, and got on the very train that crashed and she broke her ankle. Small world.

In almost every disaster since I’ve started this blog, I’ve had a blog friend near there. Every one.

Where I work, they want me to record an event for the radio station where I used to work. I am kind of torn about it, because I have a company that does that sort of thing. I don’t know whether to just do it real easy or if I should charge them.

Tomorrow’s FRIDAY!!! Can’t wait!

  1. We did pop over to Yellowdog Granny and we don’t know what to say. I remember the train crash in Japan. Just an awful week for America.
    Not sure about charging but maybe if it gets you some good publicity just go ahead and don’t worry about the money. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Ha ha, it’a already Friday here.
    Sad about all the bad stuff going on around the world.
    Uncanny how you know people who have been in/near disasters!
