my name is rose or my husband calls me rosie. i'm 60 years old and i'm just not very good with using the computer, let alone starting a blog. bear with me as i am apt to make mistakes or not understand the abilities the computer has vs myself. i'm a late bloomer, but willing to move forward in the world of machinery. oh! did i tell you that i've got cell phone that i still haven't mastered. i've always believed that it's better to go forward rather than standstill--not learn new things, experiences.recently,i went to texas to visit my family. my stepdaughter is a GEM.Shannon,patiently helped me to create this blog as well as took time to hightlight my hair with red tint. i look better,haven't colored my hair since my college days. i won,t tell you when i graduated. time marches on and it's a whole new world. my stepdaughter is and will always be in my life and heart. looking back,i never thought that i would have remarried after my 1st husband died in a car crash. i, now have shannon,michael,molly,my grandchild whom i love and wish that texas wasn't so far away from georgia. oh!i have a husband who is from ireland. gerry, makes me laugh, cry,and never know what he will do as he is an inventor as well doesn,t always follow the crowd, but goes on his beat to the music.i've lost in life as well as gained in life. appreciate the people we know as well adventures into new worlds,ect.machinery,style change,major life changes such as death and moving forward. enjoy and learn what life can bring us as we travel forward.

  5. did you everfeel like a baby bird learning to fly?well, this 60year old feels like that. it's scary to mess with the computer as i have had little sense about them. as i write, i only wish that i had my teacher,shannon, here. i know that i can, and probable will pester her for help. as i share all of this, i reflect back and remember times of apprehension---death of my 1st. husband, loss of both parents,work issues. surely, i can handle this "thing" i have about computers. thanks for dropping in to my blog. shannon, your dad never said anything about my hear. either he didn't notice it or hates it. i don't think i want to open this discussion, but i do love my hair color. i'll send you a ticket to ga for the next coloring. just joking,i'll do it myself.

  7. Great first blog, Rosie! Michael here... aka: adaddyblog. Your blog looks great. Now you'll need to decide what to make your next post about. I always try to write about things I know, and try to make them things other people might enjoy reading and/or benefit from.

    Oh, and if you get the chance, visit the blogs of people that post comments and leave a comment back... and click their follow button if you enjoy their blog. No I'm not asking you to do that on mine. I don't even have a "follow" button.

    Most of all, have fun. If it's not fun, why do it. Good for you dipping your proverbial toe in the wild wacky world of blogging!

  10. Had to go back here and read your first blog since it wasn't to far back. My middle name is Rose and my Tia (aunt) was Rosie. I've loved everything I've read about you and yours. You sound like a great gal! You'll get the hang of all this soon... Doing pretty well for yourself already I'd say! It took me about 5 months to get over 20 followers!

    Blogging about your feelings about life always makes a blog interesting to me, and I think, to others too! Do you know about links in blogs? If you want to start playing our "Pippin Puzzle" game, you just would click on the link (I always try to make them bright blue) to take you to the older post or wherever the answer is, find the answer and then go back to the blog to answer it. The other links were to our CafePress Shop and to the post that shows a preview of the first several pages of Little Dott's book.

    Links are great and pretty easy to use with the new blogger features... Linda
