  1. Hey there Newbie Spikey!
    (for your info, a Spikey is the term for folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    I wanted to catch up and say “thank you… I really appreciate your ‘follow’ as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.”

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…

    • Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. I’m at loose ends most days and sure I’ll be visiting your archives before long! 😉

      • And you’ll be most welcome Ms Terri…
        Tell you what, I often scratch my head for blog-fodder, so why not challenge old Spike. Give me a subject, and I mean ANY subject (crap, I must be brave or stoopid), and I’ll write up a post within 2-3 days as your ‘welcome gift’, lol. This is a new one for me…. I might live to regret it 🙂

  2. I love that phrase “live out loud” — such a perfect description for where women our age are in life’s journey. 🙂

  8. Hi Terri,
    I linked to your blog from my fairly new site, Family Ties. I hope you’ll take a look at mine at nanadays.blogspot.com and consider posting a link to mine! I’m working today on a new post about the Vatican scolding the nuns and parallels to the bishops’ stance on adoptee rights. Probably won’t post until tonight or early morning, as we are currently babysitting three of our grandchildren! Enjoy your posts!

  10. Glad you became “official”. The train blog always had us laughing. You always know how to express what the rest of us are thinking but afraid to say.
