I took time yesterday to reply to all the comments I got on my blog. At the time, I thought I had some witty and profound answers to all your comments. I even took the time to write all my replies in Word first, to make sure I got everything right and completely answered every comment. Then I copied and pasted it into the comment box on my blog. I do it this way a lot, especially if I have a number of comments to answer at one time. I know I pasted it in, so where did it go? Out there in cyber space somewhere I assume. I just bet that it has a lot of company out there. Now don’t tell me that something like this never happened to you. I loose so much stuff out there in cyber space that I am afraid it will suck me in, too.
Am I making too much of thing out of this small problem? Kind of reminds me of a Mel Brooks quote: “tragedy is when I cut my finger: Comedy is when you walk into an open sewer and die.” You all remember the stuff that Mel Brooks had done, don’t you? Some of his stuff was Blazing Saddles and Space Balls. He had a “different” sense of humor that I like; something like Gary Larson, the author of The Far Side. I am reading a book that I found at the flea market titled “The PreHistory of The Far Side” and the Mel Brooks quote above was on an other wise blank page preceding the contents of Gary’s book. They are two people with the same sort of off -center humor. If you like the one, you like the other. Some of Gary’s stuff does nothing for me while some of it has me doubled over in laughter. It is strange what different people think are funny. Of course I always try to see the humor in every single thing. That is hard sometimes, but it is worth while and also healthy to keep a smile on your face.
Sorry, I am not gong back and answer all your comments on yesterday’s blog, but I do want you all to know that I really appreciate your comments. We are having some severe storms and so far have received over 4 inches of rain. You all have a great day now, you hear?
