Writing here is a bit like whispering behind my hand. No-one reads and almost no-one comments and after all its only a tryout blog. So here's what I'm trying out. My memory is atrocious. If I look up a telephone number I can forget it before I've picked up the phone. Once I met people and they told me their names and next time I met them ..I knew their name their hobbies and where they worked..now I don't even remember their faces..or even that I met them once. Sometimes I read a blog, decide to comment and by the time I get to the comments box I've forgotten what I was going to say. Or what I was commenting on. It is a bit worrying I have to say. But don't worry, blogger, typepad and wordpress have a little brain training for all of us. The verification letters. I have failed that test so many times that sometimes I just give up. If an 'l' is lower case and all bendy how are you supposed to tell if its and 'l' or an 'I'? I mean what would be the very worst thing that could happen if you didn't have word verification? A lot of extra comments? Bring 'em on. We all want comments don't we?
My tryout blog is going to have a photograph now and I want it here .Don't forget you can visit my real blog here
Not here so lets upload one now and see if it will got where it should. No, it didn't so I had to move it. In case anyone is actually reading this I will tell you thats its the bear on the bench on Dick Lane. This bench was put there as a memorial to a man by his wife. She puts flowers on the bench from time to time. Its a lovely addition to my walk as I can sit on it for a rest before the 'final ascent' uphill and home. But the bear appeared in his dirty bedraggled state about February 2007. I think he dropped off the dustcart but I might be wrong. He sat there until about May then disappeared. In September he was back and has been there ever since. No one knows where he came from or where he went on his brief holiday,and he doesn't say a word.
