Once again I must apologize for my blogging shortcomings......I wish I understood what happens to my spacing once I publish the blog......Paragraphs disappear, spaces after periods are truncated......it is as though cyberspace gobbled up one's entire properly spaced words and regurgitated them in a large lump, so to speak.
I will have to learn to solve this problem because even rereading my own un-paused sentences leaves me panting breathlessly. Very strange indeed. Will the paragraph I have just created be incinerated in cyberspace??? I won't know till I hit "publish"....sob. Forced every day into a new learning experience.....no rest for the wicked.
Maverick of a weird, but wonderful family. Have managed to stay alive for an astounding 86+ years kept alive by a passionate interest in many things and a sense of humor.
Have led 2 or 3 separate lives,the first 40 years as a starving artist, ceramist, and graphic designer. At age 40 a matchbook cover that said "Be A Computer Programmer" inspired me to go back to school and emerge as a binary fanatic. Loved my work, had a wonderful 20 year career as programmer and trouble shooter. At the same time I had the chance to meet, befriend and marry Jazz Cornetist Pete Daily,an idol of my youth, whom I had worshipped in my young life. Lost him to cancer after 11 wonderful (and sometimes awful) years. Retired in 1989 and had 20 years of fantastic travel adventures all over the world. Now I crochet afghans, tend my garden, my 3 cats, the neighborhood birds and squirrels, a flock of voracious hummingbirds and assorted wildlife like possums and raccoon families who come nightly to my Porch Buffet. A great life, and it ain't over yet !....(after all, I have just discovered Blogging....)
