I'm Back... Well Almost!

On June 16th, I posted a summer farewell to my many friends here on Blogspot. I wasn't 100% sure that I would return but here I am... I'm just curious to know how many of you thought that I wouldn't return. Hmmmm.... I wouldn't blame you though since you probably have seen quite a number of fellow bloggers go by the wayside over the years.

As I perused over my favorite blogs, I was pleased to see that most of you have remained faithful which is great to see. I was also grateful to see that many of you have kept my blogsite on your list of favorites. For this, I am honored.

I see that a few of you have changed the look of your blogs as well. I have spent countless hours trying to change the look of my blog but have had some difficulty in doing so as I just can't seem to get it right... even when I use templates from outside of Blogspot.com. I have decided therefore to stick with what I already have and keep that darn lighthouse blog for another year... maybe.

So... It is great to be back. It will take me a while to get back into the swing of things so please be patient. Once the school year begins, I should be well on my way.

Talk to you soon!

Dave, let me be the first to welcome you back. You have been missed. I still have you on my blog roll.

You and I have the same template now.

Welcome back!

Cheers,
Josie

Dave it is so darn good to see you back again! As Josie mentions you have really been missed. I look forward to more of your wonderful posts.

Good to have you back, buddy. I always hoped that you would not fade off but come back with new vigor. By the way, our friend Le Nightowl has been seen lurking at my site this last week so your return is timely to help me coax her back into blogging addiction. :)

Cheryl said...

Welcome back to the fray. You were missed, and not forgotten. I'll look forward to seeing you on a regular basis again.

BTW...I never knew that was a lighthouse on your blog!

Becky Wolfe said...

You mentioned that you want to change the look of your blog but can't figure out how. If you just want to change the template with the choices they give you it is really easy. Just click on Customize at the top on the right. Then click on Pick New Template. A whole bunch of different ones come up and you just click on the one you want. The content of your blog will stay the same. Before you actually change it you can click on Preview to see how it will look.
Hope this will help you.

You say the following about Johnny Cash on your blog...

Currently, as I am sitting here, he is singing the words to his song “I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry.” Now there’s a song that would cheer you spirits!

Hank Williams Sr. wrote the song I'm so lonesome I could cry. I would suggest listening to his original version. My friend you will really hear what lonely is all about. Hank Williams Sr. died at 29 years of age from alcohol and drug abuse. Now partner that's lonely....
