I mentioned to Richard last night that I am really enjoying doing this blog and that I'm pretty satisfied with my work. He said, "You write well, but that 'ta-ta for now' has to go," or something to that effect. I thought about it and decided maybe he is right.
Perhaps I will tell you where I got that: Years and years ago, when I was a library peon at Clemson University, I had a co-worker who said "Ta-ta for now" every evening when she left work. I can't even remember her name, but she was one of the most cheerful, upbeat people I have ever met. I don't know why, but I thought of her when I was casting about for a way to sign off my posts. It's not very creative, I know, so I'll try to employ a little more creativity from now on.
Wish me luck. (This does not reek with creativity, does it?)
PS: Richard took pity on me because my camera has not arrived and copied some of his pet photos for me. With a little playing around and experimentation, I will post some of them tomorrow.
