Hello and so forth

Dear Hello Types,
Hello.
I have been gone from this “blog” for way too long, neglecting something that has brought me such joy over the years, for a number of reasons, none of which seem too valid or even noteworthy, and some of which are probably fancy ways of saying, “Hi, I’m feeling lazy!” I joined Facebook six years ago, after I’d already stopped posting regularly here on my “blog” (yes, I will forever put that word between quotation marks), so I can’t blame it entirely, but I will point a finger at it (and back at myself, natch), for making it easy to just sign in there and drop a few hilaaaaarious gems and then go about my merry way.
Facebook has been a wonderful way for me to meet people I probably would never have met otherwise. I became involved in helping to save dogs and cats, and that means more to me than I can even articulate. But it also took me away from writing longer stuff, even if the stuff that I write is just me ranting about idiots at the gym. One thing that makes me laugh is that now, on Facebook, everyone is posting photos of his or her lunch, and I was doing that a decade ago, like the trendsetting maverick I am.
One note: The photo sections of this “blog” (“It Lasts Longer” and “Jodeats (A Smorgasbord)”) are not available to view. I do not know how to update the software/service that holds them for me (or however it’s described), so if anyone cares to help me out, I would be ever so grateful. I’d like to get this place up and running on all so-called cylinders. Or silly-inders. Or something. Whatever. I don’t know. I just “work” here.
Stay tuned for more excitement in the days to come.
It’s good to be back.
