Over in Arizona Terry Dewald hiked up Mt. Kimball through Finger Rock Canyon. Lots of beautiful wildflowers.
A grueling 12.5 mile walk with 4500' of elevation gain. But Terry keeps himself in much better shape than any of the rest of us.
Always appreciated everybody. Thank you all.
I am not a very successful blogger. Well I suppose that my daily numbers are alright but any decent influencer on Instagram or cute cat video on YouTube will draw a magnitude more hits and responses. I am afraid that it's an acquired taste, and certainly not for everybody. The metric I am referring to is trolls.
I have one lousy troll. Millard doesn't count, he is a personal friend and longtime antagonist. Any blogger worth his salt should have oodles of trolls after thirteen years at the keyboard. I get one. He or she (and I think it is a he for some unknown reason), says he has to read me every morning to see what the "pseudo-intellectual bigot" is thinking. Then I get some random hate filled invective.
Now I don't really understand the rationale, it takes only a second to delete, and he knows he won't get printed, because I have a rule that contentious and nasty posts should be signed, as well as all ad hominem attacks, but he won't stop. The sad truth is that I think he has a serious crush on me.
I'm not interested, troll. I hate to tell you but I'm straight. Your clumsy and poorly written triggers do nothing against my superpowers. Get a life. Find someone else, preferably somebody like minded. Your strange fetish for the Blue Heron Blast has to stop. May I suggest, perhaps, a new hobby?
