About This Blog

I started to do this blog over a year ago  at another venue. It was experiment to learn how to manipulate the formats and such. I did one post. So much for the experiment.

Now, I'm trying a different experiment with this blog Don't Be a Hippie. . .Then and Now. Many years ago, I thought about writing essays about aspects of my life. I even got as far as outlining the contents. But, as usually happens, I get scared about being serious and so therefore seek distractions. Today, I'm pursuing the idea again, as a distraction. This time in the form of this blog.

Some posts will be original. Other posts will be revised posts I've published on blogs I've already put to rest. It all begins with that one post I mentioned earlier. 

Essentially, I'm "fishing". That's what writers do.  So, let's see how it goes.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you'll come by again.


  1. It is a pleasure to spend some time up on top of the ladder. I like your style! Thanks for checking me out on the A-to-Z Challenge. It's turning into a lot of fun and new blogs to visit.

    1. Hello rosie49, i appreciate the visit, too. That's one of the things I like about this Challenge--meeting fellow bloggers. :-)

  3. Hello Su-sieee, I am returning your visit from the A to Z Road trip. You certainly are a busy lady, but why not give crochet another go? It is relaxing once you get the hang of it. Sue at Sue’s Trifles

  5. You are a great writer and it’s fun to read your blog so...go for it!

  6. Hi Susie!! Remember me? It's Jim of the old "Jim's Little Blog". I was really surprised to see your link on Colleen's sign in Mr. Linky. Now on that blog I am following the old Alphabet game, we post on Friday's and sign in after four in the afternoon. It used to be too big, hard to answer all the comments. Now I feel okay, not real good, to have four. But for those four I have eleven other readers, some I know as family or friends, not sure who all. It has handed down several times and gets smaller with each host. Tom from Connecticut has it now, he hosts several blogs. Each week we have three topics, one is "Starts with [the letter of the week], next is "A Favorite", and last a word that Tom has chosen for us to write or show a photo for or both. Then I try to find a "Reflection or Candid shot of a person or persons" also for James who has several writers who mostly just show a picture with a short blurb. This week I posted a sly photo that I took of three folks paying their county taxes at the Tax Office counters in our city. They aren't very social and a lot don't exchange comments with many.
    I was sooo happy to have found you again, I'll check you out to see what your are posting. I might find something that I would like to do.
    Come see me on my blogs if you would. I'd like to sort of follow an old timer from back when.

Thanks for the good cheer. :-)
