grandpa blogger

The proof I’m getting old is that Alison is marking her fifth year of blogging and, instead of appreciating all the great work she’s done, I’m thinking, “I still think of her as one of the new kids who showed up, like Ernie or Mena.”
Why are the first real posts on Ernie’s and Mena’s blogs both about going to Vegas with your parents. I think this either says a lot about my circle of friends or what it took to have a good, funny blog a couple of years ago.
I was a normal kid. When I went on vacation with my parents, we went to Atlantic City. Alison’s oldest posts don’t explicitly mention going to Vegas with her parents, but I’m sure I could read that into them if I just thought about it hard enough.
