Word verification was OK. Sometimes it was amusing to see what 'word' you would provide. Uncannily, sometimes those 'words' would somehow fit the post. They often put my imagination in gear as I would think of meanings for them.
But this new Word Verification $%!+ is driving me crazy! I thought it was a new setting that one of my blogger friends had selected when I responded yesterday. It took me four tries! But no, you have changed the format on all blogs that require word verification. I guess I just don't 'get it'!
So, dear Blog friends, if it seems that I am not responding to your posts, if you aren't seeing comments from me, it's not because I'm not reading your post. It's not because I'm not interested in saying, 'Howdy' or reacting to what you have written.... it's because Blogger has driven me over the edge and I refuse to play the game!
