Hello world!

Alrighty then, here goes.  It took me zero time to find my site, thanks Sean, and a full five minutes or so to figure out how to edit the first post, “Hello World!” and I’m still not sure I’m doing it correctly.  I guess we will find out. 

 Observation of the day:  I find it wonderful when I write a long email or essay and I hit the spell check button and it comes up with zero errors.  Wow, think about it.  How often are we ever perfect?  For one gloriously shining moment, I am perfect.  I like to think of it as a little game.  It’s also a good barometer as to how well my brain is working and how much I remember from my childhood spelling bees.  Ever watch the National Spelling Bee?  Those kids are amazing.  Ten to thirteen year olds spelling random gigantic words like, vespertilionid.  Take a guess at what that word means, and no cheating with the dictionary.  Okay cheat.  Personally, I thought it had something to do with little motorcycles… but then, I’d be wrong. 

 Okay, I’m off to mow the lawn, but first, drumroll please… I’m ready to hit spellcheck….  Hmmm.. apparently spellcheck doesn’t know what vespertilionid is either.  I guess that means that “perfect” can be very subjective.

    Glad to see you found your new blog! Vespertilionid is a good word, but how about Ursprache? I’ve got money that says you would have missed the second “r” 🙂

    Keep up the writing!

    no dictionary. aren’t vespers a type of church service and tilionid believe it or not i think is the family of bats so my guess is bats in the belfry.

      Well, well Charlie. I guess all those beers in college didn’t fry your brain. You would be pretty darn correct. I don’t know about the belfry part, but they are a certain family of bats. I like your answer better. Thanks for reading.
