Where Have All the Posts Gone?

There are several reasons behind the lack of my posts. 
I procrastinate. 
This blog originated as a way for our family to follow us on some RV trips. It is not to pontificate or be political, so sometimes, current events take over the day to day things that pass through my head. Then, I find I don’t have much else to say. It’s not that I don’t want to comment on: 

  1. Iran
  2. North Korea
  3. TCU
  4. Chris Brown
  5. Whitney Houston
but, this is not the venue. ( I do have the right to change my mind on that, though.)
The Satellite Sisters had a terrific podcast about women. I know I have told you, dear readers, about them. I will continue to tell you about them. Give them a listen and tell me what you think. If you still haven’t listened to the North Korea podcast Julie gave, I just don’t know what to do with you.
But then, I sit down to write and my blog seems so blah. However, so far this year, many of the blogs I follow have been a little dull. Most of them are written by younger women, and right now they all seem to be dieting, exercising, or writing a book. I am just going to say judging by their blogs of late, there must not be any fun in those activities.
The other reason there are not many posts is that I have to spend a great deal of time guarding the dogs. 

While I was on the phone with Joanie the other day, I realized my life has come full circle. The weather was very pretty and warm. Joanie was outside watching the girls play in the yard. I was watching Bingo and Magic play in the yard. Yes, the dogs have a sitter day and night, just like a toddler. Joanie is just making sure Ava and Lucy don’t hurt themselves. I am on Coyote Patrol.  I have been hoping, at least, to get a photo of said coyotes. But when one walked nearby the other day, I didn’t have my camera. Plus, coyotes aren’t into posing. They are kind of snotty.
So, you will have to be happy with the hawk that was checking out the bird feeder this morning. I had my camera handy, but not the correct lens. 

Last, but not least, is Downton Abbey. 

First, I had to watch Season One on Netflix. I don’t know where I was last season. Now Season Two is almost over, and I am sad just thinking about that. Maggie Smith is just one of the wonderful actors in this series. She has the best lines. I loved this one. Cely posted it before I could, so I will just borrow her photo. (with credit, of course). 

Yikes, was I being a defeatist? I will buckle down, have the camera at ready, and post more!

This brings me to a blog I miss. The Unfiltered Ramblings of a DVR Addict by Joe Jenkins. I certainly cannot do a whole blog on television shows, but maybe I could post something on shows I watch a little more often. Is anyone interested in that? 

Stay Tuned,


  1. I miss JoeOnTheTube as well, but who has the time. I was easily spending 20+ hours a week on it. I still love TV, and I miss the outlet in which to talk about it. I'd love to do a weekly guest post Jan. How about JoeOnTheTubeTravelsWithBarry?

    1. I would love that. Let's do it. People don't realize how much time a blog takes. (at least for me)

  2. I did read the SS's North Korean post...scary stuff! I forget to listen to their other things, tho I promise to try to work them in to my followings.

    I have heard about Downton Abbey, so guess I need to get season 1 from Netflix and catch up. I love Maggie Smith.

    Do I need to send Jay over with his 22? jkding

    1. Yes, yes, yes! Don't disappoint me, Joan.

  3. I agree, too many blogs about dieting and exercising, And, it is hard to come up with a good blog post all of the time. Mine has turned into a chronicled to do list!

  4. I think Dad is selling the RV to limit you creativity.

  5. Your blog is not "blah" at all! It's been nice for getting to know you...again. :)

  6. I read your posts every couple of weeks. I have listened to the satalite sisters for a very long time
