Initial Thoughts...

I was told by a sister-in-law that I should start a blog, so after some initial research as to what a Blog is and how to start one, I'm off and running. I have no idea if I have enough interesting material to write about, but I figure what the heck? How hard can it be, right? I'll try not to make my Blog too boring. Thanks for the suggestion, Jeanette!  :-)

Tom & I (and Angela and her boyfriend, Doc), recently returned from a week-long trip to the St. Petersburg, Florida area (only our 2nd trip to Florida, the last one being in 1983) and we had a phenomenal time! It was as if the seasons changed right in front of our very eyes! Feb. 13th - 15th saw temps in the high 60's with a chilly breeze coming off the water in the afternoons/evenings. Then from the 16th - 18th, summer suddenly started with temps in the mid to upper 70's, a bit of humidity, some pollen flying around (my allergies alerted me to this fact), and bugs in the air. In any event, we were just glad to be in the warmer temps, and out of the Michigan snow & cold.

While vacationing, Tom came up with an interesting thought: When the tide goes out, where does all that extra water go? We had to look up the answer on Google when we got home. Give it some thought and see if you can guess where the water might go, then look it up on Google to see if you were right!

Well, time for bed. Will write more soon. I hope my friends and family will follow my Blog, comment on it, and help me come up with some interesting ideas for discussions! Nite all!


  1. OMG I am so excited that you followed my advice!!! I am following you so now you have to go and follow me, too! Weeee!!

  2. I know! Can you believe it? I'm trying to decide if I want to make my blog more public, because that would open it up to anonymous comments which can sometimes be really rude & argumentive. What are your thoughts on this?

  3. Welcome to Blogland, Debbie! I'm a friend of Jeanette's. I look forward to being a follower, and I wouldn't worry too much about anonymous comments, etc as Blogger has a good spam detector; however if you do get some, you can delete.

    Have a great day!

  4. Welcome Debbie! Friend of Miz Jeanettes! She's a real sweetheart...
    You can go to your Settings and just click on NO for accepting Anonymous comments if you are worried but as Sally said, the weird ones have now stopped.
    Glad you are aboard!
    Have a great week!

  5. Hi Debbie! I came over from Jeanette's blog. I look forward to reading more of your blog. I'm a fellow Michigan gal!

  6. Thanks for the warm welcome, you guys, and for letting me share you with my wonderful sister-in-law, Jeanette! :-) And thanks for the insight about blogging too.

  7. Jeanette sent me over! Welcome to the blogging world!
