fruit of the season

Fresh freestone peaches from Alabama!  Had one in my Cheerios this morning.  So sweet and flavorful. What a way to start the day!

Blog re-name

It struck me this morning that the name of my blog should be and would be the strange grouping of words that I woke up with one morning: high moon dog. The words were clearly spoken to my sleeping/waking mind and they weren't in relationship to a dream. I wondered about them for days, what did they mean, where did they come from, what should I do with them? A story came to me during this wondering and one day maybe I'll write it, but for now it is the name of my blog. Domain registered.

"next blog"

Last night I went searching for blogs from "next blog". There are some pretty interesting blogs out there. Many do a type of photo journal. Some have weekly themes that they discuss which is kinda neat. It is fun so see how people live their lives. Also interesting is that there were no men bloggers that came up in the next blog. True enough I didn't go that far as the internet/computer was way slow.

So, in beginning my blog, I think it is important to develop a system of writing so that I actually do write. It reminds me of when I was in the MSN group, Phany's Farm. I met some different people online and we became friends, chatting about whatever. We'd develop threads of conversation, playing games with one another. There'd be different pages where conversations were carried on to the extreme. One was the Coffee Chat which I think I started. It was just writing what a conversation might be like over a cuppa coffee with a friend: about my day. Anyone could post what was going on in their lives. Then there was My New Job which Genie started. It was simply a made up story about working for one of the members of the group who was kind of a lady's man. Almost every member of the group became a cast member in this storyline.

Now I don't want to tell made up stories. At this time, I'd like to simply write what I'm thinking about. Hopefully my blog will evolve into something that will become interesting to read as well.

Name that Blog

A hurdle to overcome was the title of my blog. This has kept me from creating a blog for I don't know how long. I decided to be like Nike and Just Do It, so my blog name is the same as mine: simple and effective in that it finally started a blog.
