Finally back on line!

After five weeks of travelling the 400 miles to be with my dad in the hospital, I am finally back home. I spent 4 of the past 5 weeks in Arkansas with my 89 year old dad in the hospital. I suffered a near stroke & spent 10 hours in the ER to get my BP down. But, in the end, my dad passed away in his sleep last Sunday. And – after catching up on the lawn & other chores – I will be posting again. Thanks for your prayers and support during this time. Albert Waldo 1923-2012. Ride on Cowboy!

Your Gravatar is an image that follows you from site to site appearing beside your name when you do things like comment or post on a blog. Avatars help identify your posts on blogs and web forums.

To get one (FREE), you can just click on the image on the right. Or, go directly to http://en.gravatar.com/ then click on the button “Get your Gravatar Today” and you will be in business.

On all of my websites (and most others), when you post a comment, it asks for you email address. That is the address that will link back to grab the Gravatar attached to that address.

When you sign up at the Gravatar site and associate an avatar (picture or image from your computer or from the web), it SHOULD (not guaranteed to work immediately) then show up on almost every site where you have posted a comment using that address. Check it out… It is pretty cool! Continue reading
