QUICK NOTE...Update: 10/10/19
Good news: We're back home! Bad news: It's like Apocalypse Heck Part III.
The one year Hurricane Michael anniversary is already here. Where did the time go...and yet it feels like forever. You don't realize how much you take for granted until it's all gone. I'm grateful my family/fur babies survived, and I know they are just "things", but sadly, in this life, those "things" help us get through every day. So yes, "happy" yet not. Every day is still a struggle...not just for my family, but so many others.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

Food for Thought: Twitter Etiquette?
While going about my daily Twitter activities of tweeting, and retweeting, I swapped over to my "@ME" messages to discover one from a "newbie" follower. To repeat (*COUGH*retweet*COUGH) it without an actual quote, it's message was simply that I had too many contest tweets and retweets so they were "un-following" me. (PAUSE.....just giving you time to let that sink in..) After my I was certain my eyes weren't deceiving me (I mean I have glasses, but this made me think I had someone else's), I stopped to consider their "complaint".
Twitter was created for (okay, if not created for, then used for at the very least) social networking and more recently "business" networking. If one doesn't tweet, one can not participate. If one sees an AWESOME tweet about whatever it may be without sharing a re-tweet, than that flow of information has been cut short. I don't care if it's about a new book (do I really DO care...that's not what I meant...keep reading), your recent trip to the movies, or your new puppy (love puppies...want to pet and hug and oh, wait, I've off track again...), it's up to me whether I read it, pass it along, or ignore it all together.
I would like to open this topic up to YOU, the readers of this blog. What are your thoughts on the whole Twitter phenomenon? Love it? Hate it? Follow all, none, or somewhere in-between? Is there a limit to what you will "allow" when you follow someone? Thoughts, comments, feedback...bring on the friendly discussion of this rather interesting (in my opinion) "debate".....
Until next time....happy reading! (Retweet!) (sorry, I couldn't resist)
