2/5/16 Blogger down


Friends: the blogging world is unlike any other place I’ve been. I’ve met wonderful people, exchanged stories and ideas, and, like most of you, struggle to keep up with the blogs I follow. I’ve even met some of you in person and that has been a great honor.

One regular contributor that I love to see posts and pictures from is Doug (Weggieboy’s blog; phainopepla95.com). I’d noticed that he hadn’t blogged anything since January 14.

Concerned, I asked another great blogger (cb; contrafactual.com) if he’d heard anything from Doug. cb was right on the case and in a matter of days was able to ascertain that Doug had fallen seriously ill and was in the hospital. (cb has his hands full like most of us do, yet he found a way and took the time to get people to give him info on Doug. I’m in awe of this guy.)

As most of us follow blogs with similar interests, I wanted to let everyone know about Doug being hospitalized and to please send healing, good thoughts his way and also to remember his beautiful cats, Andy and Dougy. I would also further ask you to include in your (prayers, good vibes, whatever you want to call it) the people who are taking care of Doug and the people watching over his kitties.

cb and I are both going to post more information when we can.

Changing the subject for a moment, I would also like to express my deep gratitude to sepultura13.me for nominating Maggie’s blog for “inspiring blogger” award. I do suggest to Maggie that we keep the blog award-free; there are just so many good blogs, I wouldn’t be able to reciprocate and nominate just a few. But Maggie and I are honored that you would consider us for this award. Thanks!

Going to try to list links for some of the above – I  hope I do this correctly. All really great blogs if you’d care to look them up.

I hope I got all that down right, and thank you in advance for thinking of Doug and his cats.

Your friend,

        I put a Get Well message on his site. I’m afraid I live too far away from Nebraska to do anything else. If you post a comment on my site and tell me to ‘delete after I read’, no one will see it except you and I.
