If you will take a moment and read the comments posted on the bottom of the previous post you will find one there that really pissed me off! The writer, who, of course posted under the name “anonymous”, stated three things that have upset me.
First, he (I am assuming it is a guy) accused me of taking an idea he suggested and using it for my posting, that being of Darryl arranging a date for me. Second, he accused me of purposely deleting the post to hide that fact. And third, he stated that my blog, though nicely written (thanks for that handout), is totally fiction.
I started this blog just a year ago with the idea of telling about my life and adventures as a househusband to my wonderful wife, Linda. I have been most fortunate to have had a very interesting year, one that has progressed further than I ever imagined. As far as I know, it has been factual with the only liberties with the truth taken being the changing of names to protect friends and family.
I have stated several times that I have and will use photos, cartoons, and drawings that I find on the web to enhance the storyline and will give credit for those when asked and will withdraw and delete any that the owner wished me to do so. I use my photo and sometimes Linda’s photo from time to time and will let you decide which one those are (hint, if the face is obscured there might be a reason for that, like protecting identity!).
I never set out to please everyone, just to write my thoughts and feelings down and to share my experiences. I have not knowingly deceived or mislead anyone with anything I have written. What I write is what I know, feel, and have taken part in, which means that, to date, and hopefully in the future, NO FICTION. If I wanted to write fiction I would do so with the hope of being paid for it… not in a blog.
So, sorry Anonymous for writing something that you have a hard time believing. Just let me know what parts you are having a difficult time grasping as reality and I will do what I can to set you straight. If you can’t do that then you are free to bypass this blog and read the millions of other ones that are out there. I have put myself out here with my photo and location clearly shown, not hiding behind a generic name and no identity. I wish you would have done the same.
Sorry to make the rest of you read this dribble but I need to get that off my AA-cup chest. If you will forgive me I might take a few days to simmer down before continuing my
