Well blogger has done it again!
We are simply at odds with each other.
I do wish whatever "knot" he has up his %$#@
he gets rid of soon.
In addition to loosing everything I had typed yesterday
I also have lost over half of my previous postings.
Since I still am unable to leave comments
I guess blogger and I are really at odds!
However, I was anxious to post so that all of
my blogger friends would know that
I am still alive.  I have been going thru a bad spell of 
depression but am much better now.

I gaze upon an old hooked rug
Three generations scaling,
Mosaiced with lots of colored stuff
That gave an eerie feeling.

I know one pattern near the edge
Was cut from Grandma's satin rare,
The brown stuff patterned like a wedge,
Was Uncle John's first little pair.

That bit of scarlet on the right
Was Grandpa's very gayest tie,
And when he wore it he would say
"Inside this makes me feel knee high."

And poor Great Grandma's special dress
Made by a famous Paris house,
In little patterns here and there
Run in and out like a gray mouse.

You know it really seems to me
We ought to tread with care,
Perhaps we ought, I wonder now
Kneel on it with a prayer.

I have been researching some items
for my classes and came across this poem
and it really touched me.  
I wanted to share it with all of you.

As the holidays approch, I hope that each and everyone of you has more than your share of things to be Thankful for.  Be sure to tell your family's how much you love them.  I feel that we don't use the word "love" with out families often enough.

Until the next time stay safe, keep a smile on your face and a song in your heart!

Blogger sure can be a booger, can't it? I am glad you haven't given up on it!!!
Thanks for the poem.

Dear Doris. I'm sadden to hear that you've been feeling down lately. The days are getting shorter and darkness come so quickly and the beauty of the flowers are past. It's enough to depress anyone.

I'm glad that you've bounced back.
I love the poem. It made me think of my grandmother.

I wonder if you can get some young person who are good with computer to help you get back to post comments on blogs. It must be just some little thing that needs different setting or something. My daughter helped me get back my blogger account.

A follower of mine had that problem and I told her to use the identity of Anonymous and now she can leave comments on my blog.

Some blogs allows Anonymous and some don't. You can leave an Anonymous comment on my blog any time. If you do use Anonymous, just leave your name at the end of your comment so I know that it's you.

Hugs, JB

What a lovely poem! I'm sorry that you've been hit with some depression. This is a strange and stressful time of year. I always wobble back and forth a bit during these months as the days grow shorter. I hope blogger gets its act together for you and you can again blog hop with ease!! It's great to hear from you!
