So, I’ve recently become aware that I’ve screwed up the “Comment” section of my blog. I had added a little thing called a “plugin” to try to make it easier to leave a comment but it appears that now only people who log in and use Facebook are able to leave comments. Since I’m not always on FB, I’ve missed the comments of those of you who’ve commented using FB because of this little plugin thing I installed.

I don’t know how to get the comments back into the blog database. Yet. I know they’re there but nobody, including me, can see them. Fine work, Lois. Now you’ve screwed it up royally.

I’m sure there’s a way to retrieve those comments – and, trust me, I’ll be working on that today – but in the meantime, if you’ve left a comment on my blog, and I haven’t responded (I try to answer everyone who leaves a comment, except for the time or two I indicated that I wasn’t typing), I apologize. It’s like those comments live in their own little universe somewhere out there in the sky.

It makes my day when I read your comments. I really do love reading your comments! I love it when you tell me that you can relate to what I’ve written because you feel that way, too, or have experienced the same thing – it keeps me from feeling I’m all alone out here in the world.

Thank you to the faithful blog reader who let me know what was going on – you know who you are, and I appreciate that you said something!

Now I’m going to try and fix it.

If I can’t figure it out, just know that I appreciate each and every comment and I’ll do everything I can to get them back, now that I’ve deactivated that silly plugin.

No more Facebook in order to leave a comment!

At least, I HOPE that’s true 😀 If not, I’ve screwed it up more than I know I have. In which case, I’ll be doing even more forensic work to try to fix it…

Now, if you’ll do me a favor and leave a comment, even just a word or two, I can see if I’ve fixed this for now or not.

Onward and upward!

    Hope your fix worked.

      Yay! It looks like the immediate fix worked! Now if I can just figure out how to get all those other comments back 😀

      Thank you for helping me out, Lorna!

    I thought it was a little different looking, but your good now!

      Yeah, I had no idea that’s what happened when I installed that silly plugin. I was trying to get the blog to do something else 😀 heheheheeeee

    Hi Lois,
    I’ve been following along, but buried in my own s**t, so excuse my delay in commenting. Glad to see you’re “coming back” strong. It’s hard to keep a good woman (or man) down. I’ve only gone through one major invasive surgery (other than having my tonsils removed at 6 and getting to eat lots of ice cream and jello) and that was almost 13 years ago. Apprehension, anxiety and trepidation were the precursor to the surgery. Absolutely minimal discomfort (no pain) was the aftermath. The major thing was the total energy drain the healing process takes leaving little energy for anything else. But, that passes. So, as I was fortunate to have my son there to help me get through the experience, you have that same fortunate situation. As the old saying goes – “this too shall pass.” Tomorrow, next week, next month and next year will be better and better and new adventures await. Keep on keeping on.
    Live free & be happy,

      Hi Ed! Hope you’re digging out of your s**t hole! I know what that’s all about, yes, I do 😀

      Funny thing, I had no anxiety or apprehension before this surgery, probably because I hadn’t had any surgery since I was 10 and don’t really remember much about that one but the days afterwards totally caught me by surprise. Being at my son’s has not been the heaven we all thought it would be – it’s been incredibly difficult for all of us (I can’t even begin to tell you 😀 ). The fact that we’re all still standing and haven’t killed each other is a testament to our stubbornness, I suppose. We may even be able to speak to each other civilly again some day! In fact, I’m looking forward to it.

      In any event, it will get better, it IS getting better (I think), and I know that some day, if I do what I’m supposed to be doing, I’ll even be able to use my right hand/wrist again. And I know we’ll make it through this is we just keep trying to make it through, one day at a time.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, I recognize this page!!! See, Lois?? You’re smarter than you give yourself credit. Before I realized you’d fixed it, was just going to say that you’d said you were looking for some little things to keep you busy and fixing the comment section fit the bill perfectly. But now, I guess you’re gonna have to get a new sudoku book to keep busy!!! Smiiiiiiiiiiiles.

      Ha! You’re the one, Marilyn!

      I knew I could get the blog back to what it was but I don’t know how to recover all the comments that were posted. They appear to now reside in Never Never Land 😀

    Hi, Lois! Just wanted to send greetings from New Mexico… glad the healing is going well. Let me know if you want a reading, anytime. Lots of love from Silvianne and Layla!

    • October 30, 2015 at 11:20 am

      Hi Silvianne and Layla! Love and hugs to you both! (OK, Layla probably doesn’t want a hug but it’s the thought that counts, right? 😀 )

    I thought I was doing something wrong, so I signed up again to follow you and left a message there. Sorry if I created dupes by doing so.

    • October 30, 2015 at 11:21 am

      Hi Susan! I’ll check and see if you dupe’d yourself and take care of it. Thanks for the message!

  • October 30, 2015 at 11:07 am

    Hi. We are glad you are recovering!!! Go now!!!

      Hi Happy! Hi Oakley! Give that girl a “pet” for me, Oakley 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by…

    Hi Lois
    Sorry to hear about your unintended break, very pleased to hear things are returning to normal ( such as a compleate both arms /hands shower) continue to heal those bones straight/strong and true. We will meet again someday, I read where your not likely to do RTR this year, I thought I would give it another spin.
    Keep your spirits up / keep playing a new game. Your friend in San Diego

      Hi Dave! Thanks for the comment! Yes, we will meet again some day – I know it! Hope you are well and that San Diego is treating you kindly. Have fun at the RTR!
