RIVER RATS
...or lurking in CenTex

There are three categories of people I love...besides family,
pets, neighbors and old co-workers who are also friends.

1. Bloggers: That seem like BFF's...all of them. It's like a community of people from all over...some young, some old, some married, some single....and some, if not most are pretty
loony.

2. Guests: that come read my goofy blog, and leave comments. Mostly women except for
Michael K. ,
Jason (who are also bloggers), Colin and my new boyfriend Nick.

3. Lurkers: Yeah, I love lurkers. A while back I introduced you to
these guys. The Public Servants from the OC.

So, you can see that there is a whole lot of people that Grandma J loves...a plethora of happy campers...and can someone please tell me how to disable the touch pad on this laptop?

I check my site meter every day often to see exactly how many people visit me from Bangladesh, and The Cape of Hope Corn. Lately, there's been a ton of activity generated from an area east of me....right here in Central Texas. I noted on the following map exactly an approximate location for these lurkers. Now, common sense tells me that I'm full of it all rivers lead to lurkers.


Can you say Grandma J is a total genius?

With a little more sleuthing around...and random DNA testing on the Blue Bell ice cream containers in the dumpster, I found my lurkers!


"Hi lurkers!"

And just to follow my sharp intuition, I have a funny feeling there is another lurker too. Now, I don't have any DNA he has mine on file to prove it yet. Remember when Grandma J had to cancel her
Friday Matinee....for the THIRD TIME? When the good folks over at Scotch & Whiskey couldn't fix my injured pinky?


I went to see the good Dr. Bob. I heart Dr. Bob. He told me my pinky would heal, and that he would pray for me and my family.

Now you see why Grandma J loves her lurkers in Central Texas just as much as the ones in the OC.


Can I get an Amen?

Are you trying to guilt me into commenting? It worked. I still don't know how you hurt your pinky, I'm sure it's a good story. Let me know when we're goint to lunch.

You have extremely too much time on your hands!

Pleasing Procrasinator said...

Gramma J - I agree, I just love my blogging friends. I look forward to seeing what everyone has to say for the day.
You're farther than I am on sitemeter, I cannot quit figure it out or could it be I may just be too lazy?

Grandma J said...

Carol M. get together with AG, PG and CZ. pick a day the week of 9/ 22-26 when your boss is gone. Lets do Mexican...I miss the So CA v.

Grandma J said...

Ha! Cortney...you are so right! The beauty of being retired is the guilt-free excessive blogging. I still have to pinch myself to make sure I haven't died and gone to blogger heaven.

Nick said...

Grandma J said...

Keeper Of All Things said...

Look you outset a lurker!!
I have my reg blog that I visit any free moment I get.
Yours is definitly one of them.
I LOVE the Grandma Rita stories to.
Your very witty

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Oh, grandma J. I am so proud and honored you consider me a loony! I've strived all my life (with very little effort, may I add) and approve--if not go to great lengths to prove--that label.

And PLEASE don't tell any Rita stories while I'm gone next week. I heart Rita. We're definitely simpatico.

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Oh, and one more thing. Grandma J. is most definitely a genius. She's my 911 technology support. She's the man. Or the lady. The grandma?

Jason said...

Amen! And a lot of people love Grandma J, too.

Hollywood said...

I must be somewhat 'slow'....I don't get what a lurker is? I arrived here via Michael K & I comment---does that make me a lurker or a reader?!?! Can you tel where I am? In New Mexico---hollywod :)

CGS said...

We said that we were friends who leave comments. Even though we've never met, you know most of my family one way or another...so we're friends now. =) Meghann

Grandma J said...

hollywood, my definition of a lurker is someone who reads blogs but doesn't comment. Usually a shy thing. You aren't a lurker since you commented and asked a question or two. You rock! Now, the bad news is, I can't see where you are because I had to delete my sitemeter. I couldn't log on to my site, and another blogger had the same problem and emailed me, telling me the culprit was sitemeter.
Now, before today, I could see the location of all the hits to my site. Not your address, but your location...city state, country. Sorry to say I'm gonna miss my site meter.

Amen sistah
Great Blog from a former lurker lmao

M, Ms. R, Mom, Auntie M, Marey said...

Amen.....from a non-lurking blogger from CA....now in UT....and wondering if you check by location if it says Salt Lake or Ogden? I am in the between, where the porcupine and rattle snakes roam!
Happy Saturday!

The Dorsey Boys said...
