Caution! This Blog May Contain A Lot Of My Thoughts And Opinions!

April 23, 2011

Good morning.  It's wet and gray here, but my flowers really do need the drink.  Did the title this morning catch your attention?  It was meant to.  I want to clarify a few thoughts regarding my blog.  This is MY blog.  And I can and will say, post or write whatever I wish to.  That does not mean that I will purposely slander or try to hurt someone. 

I do not ever intentionally put anything on my blog that is meant to slander or hurt someone else.  So, if something that I have written here hurts your feelings, you've probably read more into it than I actually wrote.  I cannot be held responsible for the super sensitive feelings of some of the folks who come here to read my blog and catch up on my ramblings.

If something on or about my blog offends you, be an adult and send me an email explaining how it is that I offended you.  Don't leave a lot of trashy comments here, because I will erase them and ban you from my blog.  The easiest thing to do if you find my blog intolerable is to erase the link from your computer. 

When my husband died a few years ago, I turned to my PC, digital scrap booking and photography to occupy my mind.  I made new friends and started this blog.  It was a place for me to think out loud, and share photos and scrapbook stuff.  This blog filled a lot of the empty space that I was muddling through.  One of my daughters had also died recently in a car crash.  On top of that, I lost my brother a few months ago.  So you see, that's a lot of muddling to work through.

My little blog, and my new friends and hobbies, have given me a purpose to keep going and to have a good frame of mind.  I should also add that my little Tootsie has made every day a joy to be here.   I try never to post any photos without getting permission first from whoever is in the photo.  If someone has asked me not to ever mention any information about them or post any photos of them, I have respected their wishes and left them off my blog.  If there are friends and family who never get mentioned here, it does not mean that I do not love them, it means that they have asked to be omitted from here.

So I guess the long and the short of it is -- if things that may or may not be here on my blog bother you -- please just erase the link from your computer.  You will be much happier, and I will definitely be much happier knowing that I did not cause someone any grief.

Now for my usual chit chat.  Yesterday, Jazzy came by and we did quite a lot of scanning.  Now I have lots of new goodies to play with.  When I took her home, we (yes, Tootsie too!) stopped by the local Dairy Queen and indulged in the mmmm mmmm goodness of their ice cream cones.  What a great way to end the day.

For my photo today, I will show you the new orange  Lily in my garden.  Ahhh, it's such a beauty!!  Any wonder why orange is my favorite color?

I also have a freebie for you today.  This is a QP that I made from my vacation photos in Florida this past winter.  It's just a fun QP to chase away the cold weather doldrums.  I hope you can use it.

And here is your download link:

Tomorrow, I will have more freebies for you.  Now I want to make a fresh cup of coffee, and catch up on some my blog reading.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

That's right dear lady. It's called Miss Edna's Place, you don't have to stop by, stop in, or stay. The door swung open for you to come in, and it swings the other way for you to leave.

Hi Edna,
You're so right,it's your blog and you are free to express your thoughts and opinions. And I think you are very mild in it, I don;t think it really can offend anyone.
If those people have a different opinion, they can let it know, or they just don;t visit anymore, very simple.!
Lovely lily you have! I too have some, they are growing at the moment, hope they will blook also LOL.
I don;t think I will spend all too much time on the computer, we better enjoy today and tomorrow, when it still is beautiful weather. Later on this week, temps will drop, even it could rain, that's Holland, from one extremity to another LOL
Have a wonderful day

Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies, under the Page 2 post on Apr. 24, 2011. Thanks again.

Edna, I’m so sorry that you got invaded by lunatics! That’s my opinion, but if anyone finds your blog offensive in any way, well, like I said, lunacy! I was shocked and told David that your blog was less offensive than mine and I try to be NOT offensive! But, like you said, it is YOUR blog and anyone else can choose to move on and not read. If anyone is offended, it’s because they WANT to be offended. Still, NOT your fault that they have issues!

I love the lily! All this time I thought you liked orange because it’s the color of self confidence and strength. But, I see where it appeals in the floral form too!

I’d love to thank you for the quick page because you know how much I love palm trees. In fact, you know I love palm trees so much that I already have the QP on the awesome disk of palms I got in yesterday’s mail! Edna, you are so sweet and make me feel so spoiled! Thank you so much for the gift! :)

Have a hippity-hoppity happy Easter!

Wow, somebody got your dander up! Good for you to set the record straight. I'm sorry you had to go through that, whatever it was. I was unaware of all the misfortune you've had and want to extend my sympathies for all your loses. They take their toll on a person. I can't imagine anyone being offended by anything you've ever posted, but there is the mystery of it. People never shock me anymore.
