Blogging one year!

Dear Friends,

I just realized that it was a year ago on February 4th that my Daughter Lynn said, Mom, I think that you would enjoy having a blog!  "Me" with a blog!  But I can't write and I know very little about a computer!  Anyway, with Lynn's help, I became Henny Penny here at Henny Penny Lane...and I am loving every minute!

The very first picture I posted was of our log cabin.  I went on to say something dumb sounding about how I had wanted a blog for a long time.   



Also in that first post I mentioned living in a log cabin on a hobby farm with chickens, ducks, guineas, cats, dogs, and a couple of silly goats, and that surely I must have a few good stories and pictures! 

Here, one year later. I have enjoyed, more than anything else, reading other blogs and meeting all you special friends.

I've learned a lot but have probably just about driven Lynn crazy in the process!!  If so, she has never shown it.  She has laughed a time or two at some of my questions! 

My camera has stopped working.  Worn out I suppose during this year of blogging. :) Poppy came right in here to the computer and ordered another one for me...exactly like the old one...so I will be back in business soon!

Thank you for reading my blog.  

Love,
Henny Penny

    1. I was thinking the same thing, about the camera. I was just beginning to learn about the settings and what everything means. Thank you, Victoria.

  4. I started my blog because I wanted to prove, to myself, that I could do it. I still have an office, in the city, and was trying to write a romance novel at night. There just weren't enough hours in the day. So, I gave up the book writing and started a blog...go figure that one. I'll be watching and reading your stories....thanks again for following my blog. And, congratulations on your one year.

    1. I remember those days when I worked in downtown Raleigh and was in the car driving, or sitting in traffic, for three hours every day. There was hardly time for anything else! Hang on to that novel you've started. Retirement age gets here before you know it and you may then have time to finish it! I am glad you started a blog! Thank you Meggie!

  9. Dear Henny,
    A whole year, and you deserve your congratulations! I have loved reading your posts, like your other friends, and always seem to wander to the computer to see what is going on in your "neck of the woods". You, and Lynn, are special. Thank you.
