I once harboured thoughts about writing a book.
Don't laugh, I mean it!
As a younger man (I'm not really as old as you might think I am), I sat down many times in front of my PC with only one goal ... to write a book!
Not just any book!
It was meant to be a great book that would sell millions of copies and one day appear as a Hollywood blockbuster or a mini-series on TV.
I still have aspirations in that direction but, unfortunately, I am now of an age whereby I recognise my limitations and I have now come to terms with the fact that my ambitions far outweigh my talents.
Oh, yes! I can rattle off a few lines now and again, sometimes even managing to inject a modicum of humour into them, for my blog ... but a real book?
I know my boundaries! I've crashed into them often enough.
I suppose we (bloggers) are all, in some way, frustrated, wannabe authors ... maybe that is why we blog! Maybe we are, in a sense, all living out our dreams on a small scale by being 'after work' bloggers!
I believe that I mentioned this once before ... correct me if I'm wrong ... but there is certain thrill to having people read your words; laughing at your humour, crying at your pain, sharing your disgust or sympathising with your woes.
Even if you start writing your blog, as I did, for yourself as a form of expression or release, you still get that tingle when someone has left a comment about your article, when your visitor counter starts to go higher and higher and when the number of hits your blog has received reaching for the heavens.
That is how blog-junkies are born!
Oh! I think I've just admitted to an addiction!
Did I ever mention that I lurrrrrrrv chocolate?
Anyway, I wouldn't like to leave you feeling deprived of a good giggle, so ......
About This Blog
This blog was originally started as a thread on the forum pages of an animal rescue site. Now it's here!
The articles you find in here are purely for entertainment (yours and mine) and (with one or two exceptions) are all tongue-in-cheek chronicles of the World (my bit, anyway) as I see it.
No disrespect is intended towards anyone unless I make a mistake and make it too obvious.
I hope you enjoy my offerings. Feedback and comments of any kind are welcome.
