Posts Tagged ‘Granny 1947’s Blog

It was really difficult to chose one blog out of all the blogs I read and look forward to seeing pop up on my screen: Redneck Princess, You’ve Been Hooked, the only Cin, the Laughing Housewife, Tinkerbelle 86, My Caravan of Dream, and these bloggers have been friends as well as entertaining bloggers. But if I have to pick one blog to write about it would have to be Granny 1947’s Blog . One of the main reasons I like this blog is the fabulous photographs Granny takes along the beach near Capetown, South Africa. I love it when she captures the boiling surf and especially the way she captures the light on the mountains and the sea.

Granny writes in short sentences. I like that. I can follow along pretty well. I’ve learned about her life and her dog Jasmine, a real sweety that I’s love to meet (not that I would like to meet Garnny, too, because I would). Her life is just a normal life and I love to hear about it. She loves her grandchildren but not to the point of being sicky sweet about them. I like to hear about Mex and the cat and her job, about everything. She has such a normal life but makes it so lovable and interesting.

She shows me a South Africa I know so little about, and it makes me want to know more. It is a beautiful place, I know, from the photographs and if most South African are like Granny, I would love to meet them all.

Granny is only a wee bit older than me, not even enough to mention, but it shows that we “elderly” people have lives and that we have something to say, too. Maybe not about first dates or the drama of the single life and the hunt for a man, but we’ve lived a good life and have some words of wisdom to impart. Granny is a master at that. Besides, I love her name. I called my maternal grandmother “Granny.” There must be a psychic connection there.

So if you want a blog you can like and will not tax your brain too much or leave your head spinning from the drama of life, Granny 1947’s Blog is the blog for you. I would include a link if I were technologically inclined but I’m not. But you can find her at http://granny1947.wordpress.com. (Maybe this will actually link!)

You can read this on my new blog, too. Email me for the address of the new blog. My old blog is My Life, Such As It Is http://mairedubhtx.wordpress.com I actually linked it! This requires chocolate!
