Morning Martini, One Month old Today!

I will have another post later today but right now I want to thank everyone, old friends and new, who have visited Morning Martini this very first month of its existence. One month ago today I decided it was time for me to fly solo on a blog. I had no idea what I was doing as I followed the steps for setting up this site. But I did it and thanks to everyone of you, it’s one month old today. I sincerely am grateful to you guys for making me feel welcome in the blog community.

Today Mr. Pop and I will be signing a contract and selling our other house. We haven’t lived there for over five years but when we did live there we loved that place. We are emotionally attached to the house and the yard. We planted a lot of love in that yard and the renters who have lived there since felt that same love for what we did. The oaks we planted as tiny seedlings are now large beautiful umbrellas of green. We have so many wonderful memories of the years we called that house our home. As of today someone else will begin to call it home. I hope that little house welcomes them and gives them just as much happiness as it gave to us.

Good morning PoP:

I'm impressed that you're able to write a "column" each day. I'm struggling to write one a week. So, keep up the good work and I hope your audience continues to grow as you have some really good insights. And, you're a very good writer.

Re: yesterday's column, I saw the following quotes from POTUS about women's freedom on International Women's Day. They appeared on Blonde Sense.

The juxtaposition is too much!

Good luck on the house.

Hi again:

No, I didn't know that you were a contributor to blondesense. It was obviously a great starting point before you went out on your own. The circles within circles are very interesting to me as I see some of the same names on some of the same sites that I peruse a lot. Yours, Mad, Jamie, Sheila, to name just a few. And, three of us are aries to boot. Mad, when's your birthday? Sheila said she just had one so we'll include her as an "aries rising."

Re: your inability to get a picture from a url, often times if the isp or the Internet is slow -- too much traffic -- you will get a blank picture with a "done" message. Just wait a minute -- an eternity in cyberspace -- and the picture will usually come on the screen.

POP, just sent you an e-mail regarding our Crawfordslist exchange yesterday. Wanted to alert you since you wouldn't recognize my e-mail address. The subject is "I'm DS" so you'll know it's not spam or a worm!

Happy Birthday. Didn't realize you are so new. Very impressed.

It's hard to let go of what you love. Hope the new owners appreciate your improvements and perpetuate your start by putting their love in it, too...

I thought for sure you had commented that you had just celebrated your birthday. It's great that you're with us on your birthday too. A true aries! So, I'll just admit my mistake, get up off the ground, dust myself off, and move on. Isn't that we aries do best? Thanks for the correction.
