“I am going to write a blog and post it on the church website,” I said proudly.
“But you don’t even know what a blog is,” Diane said. “And even if you do, what are you going to write about. We live a mundane, hum drum life. Nobody is going to be interested in your blog.”
“ Oh, but I think they will,” I said, “I am going to resurrect the ‘From the Garden Gate’ column that I used to write for the church newsletter. You know, the one where I said I was Dr. Dick the Garden Doc, who thought he knew much but knew little? I know it was not great literature, but....
“But it was kind of silly,” Diane finished my sentence.
“I call it lighthearted, but yes it was meant to talk about the church flora and fauna and occasionally church life in a humorous way. At least I thought it was funny - I always chuckled when I wrote it. Occasionally I would get a compliment or two from church members. And now I can even add pictures. Just think of it - writing and pictures and emojis. I’m sure that I will have a HUGE following.”
Diane sighed, “Well, okay if you must. But don’t put me in any of your columns and don’t start tweeting and twittering and facebooking. Someone will start gathering up all our personal data.”
I smiled. “Nope, no tweeting or twittering. But you might appear in a column or two. Now, lets head over to church so I can start gathering material for my new column. I saw some butterflies I might want to write about.”
Dr. Dick, the Garden Doc
