I Am Writing This In Bed You Know!

I'm in bed! How amazing. Here I am 65 years old and I am sitting in bed with a computer. If I wanted to I could press a few keys and I would be able to communicate with people all over the world. Incredible don't you think? And I'm in bed!

What a fantastic mind the person who invented the world wide web must have had. I mean how does anyone's brain even begin to conceive of such a thing? The whole thing is totally beyond me.

I just realised I told a lie then. I couldn't really press a few keys and communicate with the world. What I should have said was if I knew what keys to press I could do that. Amazing, and I'm in bed!

Never mind communicating with the world, I can't even understand the new blogger interface. Why did they have to change it? It takes me ages now to even work out how to write a new post. Where all your blogs have gone I don't have a clue. If I find you it is more luck than judgement. Is that what they call progress? I suppose it is. As it is all part of computer land I shall just have to get used to it.

I have just discovered a bit of a drawback to this computer in bed lark. I am keeping my knees bent to support it and my feet keep slipping down the bed. Someone ought to invent non slip sheets, they would come in useful in more ways than one. For instance, supposing I was in bed with a wom... No, no I'm not going to start rambling on again. I could get into trouble.

I really ought to get some sleep. Mac is coming to stay with me tomorrow for a whole week, and I know he is going to be hard work. Mac is an eight month old puppy. He is supposed to be staying with Tricia, but she has three little dogs of her own and a bit of jealousy is happening. I found myself volunteering to take Mac. Sadie the German Shepherd will be all right I think, but I'm going to keep him away from the hens. Oh dear what have I done? If the weather is fine we shall do a lot of walking. Here's hoping.

My knees are about to give out, so I have to go. I will talk again soon. Have a great week. I am writing this in bed you know. Amazing!


  1. It is amazing the things you can do with a computer (given the right knowledge) As for the blogger interface I think they should follow the rule "If it's not broke don't fix it"

  2. You and Mac and Sadie should have fun, but preferably not in bed.

  3. If you take the satin sheets off the bed your knees won't slip!

  4. John, you should be able to switch back to the old Blogger interface. (I still can)

    If you want to switch back go to your dashboard and in the upper right hand corner where it says English (translator) there is a little gear(looks more like a flower) beside it. Click on the gear and click on Old Blogger Interface(5th one down) that should bring the old one back up. I switch back and forth all the time, at least until they won't let me any more!

  5. It took my son a long time to get me started using a computer. I thought it was nothing more than a giant chat room and I was just not interested. Once he convinced me to try it I was hooked. I have been able to visit almost every museum in the world as well as a lot of pubs. I can find any subject or person that happens to catch my interest. And to think that way way back when I was a youngster this was all science fiction.

  6. I was wodering why I hadn't heard from you for a while. Perfectly logical now that I know you can't find our blog
    Sorry to hear about the trouble you are having in bed!

  7. I switched back to the old interface when they first changed it. I shall stay there untill they force me, and I will have to go kicking and screaming. You can change it back as Wanda says.
    You want a pillow halfway down your bed under your knees, then you can pull your feet up onto it and they won't slide down. I find having a pillow down there is a most comfortable way of sleeping. I usually sleep on my back, but if I turn onto my side I put the pillow between my knees, again very comfortable.

  8. I hated the new blogger but now that I've got used to it I find it actually works better than the old one. It's just a matter of thinking things through....grins.

    So pleased you feel happier after visiting my blog!!!!!

  9. Did you know that I am typing this comment in bed too, but using an iPad instead of a computer. It's easiervtonhandle, but typing can be a challenge.
