Wondering what is next.

This is the 344th blog that I have posted. When I started blogging, I had no idea where it would lead. I have posted some good blog posts, some really boring and dumb ones, and a lot in between. But yesterday it reached a mile post. Aintforcitygals became my 50th follower. I never thought that I would get more than a few followers, and I want to thank everyone that has become a follower. You all really ought to check out this gal’s blog. One of the things she does is restore old RVs. If you haven’t already, go check her out at http://aintforcitygals.blogspot.com/ and say howdy.

My blogs have taken me to old times and old memories, RV wanderings, food (like prickly pear cactus ice cream served at the general store at Tortilla Flats, AZ) outer space, telescopes, flea markets, paintings, repairs, and wonderings about all sorts of things. It seems to me that my blogs have been losing their freshness. I enjoy going back and reading some of my old blogs. Lately, I have been running out of ideas of what to blog about. In a way, that is a good thing because there has been nothing traumatic happening in my life. The bad part of that is that there has been nothing exciting happening either.

In reality, there is always something new and exiting happening every day. The trick is to be able to recognize it. Remember back last week when I took the RV down to a park along interstate 10 to meet up with my cousin from Ft. Myers, Florida? Well he gave me 10 mangoes that he had picked off his tree before he left. I hate to admit it, but I had never eaten a mango in my life. Well, the other day, I figured they were getting ripe enough and tried one. WOW!!! I like them, so now I have been eating one tasty mango a day. I wonder if store bought mangoes are as good?

Did you ever notice that when you don’t have anything to say, you write a longer blog than you would if you knew what you were going to say? Better end this and get it posted. I have a lot to do today. But, before you leave, go check out my first blog at http://dizzydick.blogspot.com/2010/07/st-blog.html.
You all have a good day now, you hear?


  1. I have met some very nice people through my blog. I met Dome Dude on the 4th of July. People give me building advice and some I met for dinner. The blog-o-sphere has surprised me.

  2. Keep writing Dizzy. You never know who'll really enjoy a post you thought was a throw away. We can be the poorest judge of our own work. Well . . . and some more fun adventures.

  3. As someone (I think it was Ben) once said "all my friends are in this little box under my desk" and I seem to be making new ones. I'm flattered that I get emails of concern when I don't write for a week.
    I believe that if you find life interesting and I know you do, you will have something to write about. I don't know anyone that expects every post to be a killer.

  4. Todays post is probably true for every blogger. Ya run out of stuff to say. Once you go through all your old memories and tales I rekon it's time to go out and make some new ones. Memories are to be shared....well, some of them.

  5. You make an interesting and informative post, that's why you got people following you.. Don't Quit!!!

    Watch those Mango!! They are a natural laxative. Ask me how I know someday. :-)

  6. Frann, It sure has for me, also. I have met a lot of nice people and have visited a few.

    Sixbears, I was thinking of writing about everything I did wrong in my life, but that would take years. . .

    Oldfool, Thanks for the reassurance and the advice. I have found that the ones I write that I think are the best get the fewest comments. Go figure. . .I guess I think differently than others.

    BB, I am just fix’n to do that. Maybe I can find some new stuff..

    Ben, it just seems to take too much of my time, but don’t worry, once you catch the blogging bug (or virus), you just can’t up and quit.

  7. Good on you DD, just keep on writing for you. The people 'following'are a wonderful bonus... Don't forget that the Queen of England might send you a 'Congratulations' letter when you reach 100...

  8. FT, if I remember correctly, the last email I got from England was supposedly from you asking for a loan of $2000.00. . . remember your stolen account infor? I will keep writing but may skip a day now and then, who knows.
