I dont' know what possessed me




My life changed on July 28, 2009
 
 
 

I started to blog.  But Why?  I hardly knew what a blog was.
I hardly ever said anything to anybody. 
 
 
 
 
 

500 blog posts later.
 Yes, 500 today, on Christmas Day 2012,
 
Now, I know why.
 
Have a most joyous
Christmas Day my dear
Blogging Friends.
 
Gina
