Gets it Right ----
There goes the neighborhood
WHEN I FIRST SAW this web site, I thought, "This
is a great idea." It looks great, has lots of interactions,
places to voice your opinion, history, and other goodies.
Plus it's FREE, and that's always a big plus. But the
one thing it lacked was a woman. I'm sure you were all
thinking the exact same thing. Right. Anyone?
Anyway, I wrote a few e-mails to Jack and Dan, touting
myself as a wanna-be writer who could put a female spin
on some things. Being two very intelligent men, they
agreed, of course, and here I am.
I graduated in 1981. From what I've seen here, there
are lots of folks from the early 70s. You don't know
me, but -- no offense -- some of you or probably your
parents, may have known my Dad. He worked at the Highland
Springs Post Office for 25 years before he died in 1987.
His name was Tony Jenkins, and he worked at the front
counter most of the time. He always had a smile to give.
He told tons of corny jokes, never met a stranger, and
he's the reason I'm the way I am. I tell more stories
than jokes, though, but, like him, I'm not afraid to
talk to anyone. Or, more to the point, I'm not afraid
to make a fool of myself; sometimes you have to do that
in order to get the laugh.
Hopefully I'll be a regular up here soon. It will be
mostly my personal rants and general observations about
men, TV, music, and anything else that may be rolling
around in my head. Feedback is great, so feel free --
but only if you agree with me. Because being right is
very important to women.
Okay, I'm only kidding. Any feedback is great. At
least I'll know someone out there is actually reading
Until next time......
