I’m not writing this so you’ll all comment more and you know I’d keep writing even if I never got another comment because I love writing and I love sharing . . mostly because the blog is such a good reference. Vince will say “Can you remember when we did this or that?” Sure . . let me check the blog and most often, I can find what I need right here on the blog.
Don’t ever feel bad or apologize for not commenting. I don’t expect anyone to comment but I do enjoy reading your comments. I have especially loved reading the comments about your first cars and that you didn’t have the strength to make a 3 point turn (and I don’t even know what that is!) without power steering. Almost every first car someone mentioned, I would remember a friend from many, many years back who had a similar car. Such fun memories.
So often, I’ll write about a memory and then someone else will comment about something that brings back a completely different memory for me. I love that!
Last night Sandie commented about the Mountain Pie Iron. We used to have those. I had totally forgotten about them. We would make peach pies using buttered white bread and peach pie filling. I thought that was about the best thing ever and so easy to make.
When I’m in MO, I’m going to see if Chad has one because they camp a lot and do things with fires in a fire pit outside. If he doesn’t have one, I’m getting one for them and definitely getting us one.
If Sandie had not commented about what that was, I doubt that memory of peach pies would ever have come to the surface.
Often your comments bring back memories, share a perspective I have not considered, remind me I’m normal (or not!), and cause me to think/reflect. There’s so much in life I’ve never and will never experience and even when readers are sharing what seems like a mundane experience or thought, I so often learn something from it.
I probably don’t say it enough but thank you for your comments!
