You never know.

I tend to forget just who reads my posts.  Obviously the folk I blog with regularly read them - I tend to write them mainly for that audience.   After all, I think we all choose to put people on our side bar who are on the same wavelength don't we?

But it never ceases to amaze me just who else reads it.  Several ladies in the village and in our nearby town for a start.   Quite a large group of my friends (hello P and D out there, and possibly A) read it and sometimes send me an e mail to comment on something I have said.

Today I have received an e mail from a friend who sometimes walks Tess for me to say that she has had an e mail from her sister in law in Cambridge urging me to keep Tess.   She too reads my blog.
The power of modern communications is amazing.

Of course six months is no time at all in the grieving process and it is only six months since the farmer died - and left me quite suddenly at that.   Adjustment takes longer than that and you have to work at it.   So to all those out there who are giving me support either directly or indirectly this post is just to say thank you (on the whole you know who you are).

I'm not surprised that many people read you and support you. Reading your blog has always been a treat for me, even in the sad times.

Yep, we call in daily from all over the world !

Your posts mean more to me than The Archers, Weave. When you move into town, they will men more than Crossroads ever did,

Tom Stephenson said...

'Mean', I mean. Amen.

The power of modern communications is amazing. It's a global conversation and I am sure your blog will have many readers who will always remain anonymous.

Unlike this reader who sooner or later just has to make an unsolicited comment.

I like to think of all my favorite blog friends, who live all over the world, thus making it a more friendly place. I enjoy visiting with you here and how we cheer each other on.

I've been a fan of your blog for several years, My name is Eddie and I read it here in Detroit Michigan, USA. Bet you never thought you would have admirers of your writings from so far away

Truly your words go far and touch many. I live in a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri, USA. I love your blog and I love that through blogs we can reach out across the world and learn how we are all actually very much alike in many ways. Thank you for sharing Weave! Please count me as a friend!

I read you, and have for years...and I'm 4,600 miles away. Keep Tess. She may gain a pound or two, but she loves you and will be happiest by your side.

Blogging is so important on so many different levels. We learn, we teach, we interact, we talk, we listen, we laugh, we cry, we agree, we disagree, we share our thoughts as we write or comment.

I love your blog but don't always comments - which is unusual for me, as I'm usually quite vociferous! But like so many others, and this comes from someone who has never had a dog (only the family dog when I was a child and she didn't endear me to the breed as she was a Corgi, much like the Queen adores and which I gave a wide berth!) I would urge you to keep Tess. You mean as much to her as she means to you. You have suffered enough with the loss of your dear farmer without parting from Tess right now.

I don't have a blog of my own - (couldn't compete with some of the wonderful blogs in blog-land!) but your blog is always a pleasure to read - come rain or shine.

Heather said...

I love reading your posts and envy your way with words. You will understand from my long absences that I struggle to make my mundane happenings sound interesting, whereas a stroll round the farmyard with you is a delightful experience.
Decorating is ongoing in my flat so everything is a bit topsy turvy still, but I will try to pull my socks up and start writing more regularly once I am completely settled.

Greetings from Austria.

By the way, I very much agree with comment above from 'angry parsnip'. the

I think of you often Weaver, and certainly read your blog regularly - and was thinking about Tess and you both, only to see another Post . What a lot of changes you have had to cope with. I, too, believe you need each other, and although the lifestyle will be different in town, being together will help you both. You have made many friends though your insightful and wonderfully descriptive posts. We will follow the progress into town with great concern until you are happily settled and we can all relax!

Oops ! I meant to end with "one day at a time, one foot after the other"

Derek Faulkner said...

"we all choose to put people on our side bar who are on the same wavelength don't we?" - well no, as much as I enjoy reading your blog, on my blog, not that I write it as much these days, I'm open to all wave lengths. I enjoy the stimulus of someone challenging what I've written, not a constant flow of people all agreeing with everything I say and do.

No matter where we live, we all our humanity in common. Blogging lets us see that and allows us to get to know lovely people like you.

Ruth said...

I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog from over here in Pennsylvania! You're in my thoughts daily, and I'm wishing all the very best through the upcoming changes in your life. I truly admire your courage and attitude - keep on dear Weaver!!

Minigranny said...

I'm now reading your blog in Crete. Just had to keep up with it to see how you are! Take care Sheila x

Sue in Suffolk said...

Blogging is good for you...........that's what I think anyway and I'm a relative newby, but it's good to have people to talk to even if they are strangers, who might be friends.

Amy said...

I'm so happy that you blog...I check in every day to see what's going on! I live in a condo on the west coast of Florida so our daily lives are quite different. I came to your blog from Going Gently.

Jill said...

Blogs and the interaction they bring in the comments are like a bonus human connection I never expected. But it's been a part of my life for years now and I can't imagine my days without it. Coming to blogs like yours makes me feel better about the world and human beings in general.

Pam in Texas said...

I love reading your blog and look forward to your posts and reading the comments.
I lived much of my life in England and many happy years in West Yorkshire.
Now living in the US, so life is very different.
I find your posts and the comments very inspirational I cannot imagine a day without reading blogs.

I always read your posts but have no emotional way of helping you; I wish I had. I want to help, please let me know if I can?
