Tap. Tap. Is this thing on?
I dial. It rings. A southern twang of, “Where the hell have you been?” and it’s like not a moment has passed. Quick jibber jabbers between us and (one of my) my South Georgia SILs says, “I know how y’all are. I read your blog.”
Wait. What? You read my blog?
And so the background has been laid for today’s blog.
I get over 200 hits a day here in the land of Life of Cagle-- and I don’t even post daily, nor do I have a lot of followers (thank you, those 21 out there- YFBF!). It always crosses my mind wondering who is out there and what they think about what I have to say.
For instance, last month 322 hits from Texas have ventured this way. From that, 119 of those was someone in Fort Worth.
Greetings, Ft. Worth! I hope you are enjoying our adventures! Say hi sometime- I don’t bite!
Better still, Minneapolis... who’s that? 119 visits since January 1. Peace and Salutations! Welcome to the club.
37 visits from IOWA? A virtual high five to you. How’s the weather over there?
So, I’m just curious... and just a little nosy- who follows our adventures in gardening? Who reads my recipes and says, “Ohhh... I can do that”? (the proper placement of the question mark in regards to the quotation mark would be appreciated.) Who out there felt my pain when LMC made me cry, wondering how The Story would end, cheered us on when we moved to the apartment, or was just a little impressed with my curtains and the evolution of my domesticity?
Allow me to extend a warm hand and kindly make formal introductions, “Hi. My name is Wife. What’s yours?”
