Marian posted her reaction to the announcement that I was ending this blog. In response, I commented why. Since I never went into those details here, I am repeating my comment now.
Thank you for the very kind words, Marian. 
You are correct: I spent a lot of time producing each blog post... two hours minimum, but more typically three or four hours! When I was working, I usually put the blog together in the morning before work and put the bow and ribbon on it during lunch. It provided a needed break from writing very technical manuals. 
Since I retired, I typically spent the morning putting together each blog post. The three and four hour chunks were more noticeable and it did not provide a needed break from anything... it became a job. And after nearly two years of retirement, I got tired of doing it, so I quit.
I was overwhelmed by the reaction to my quitting. All my regular correspondents had something to say, but what really surprised me were all the strangers who wrote to me saying how important the blog was to them. I had no idea!
So I decided to continue writing the blog on a limited basis. Once or twice a week at the most. And so it goes.
Best Wishes,

Someday Funnies

    First and foremost, “Call me anything but late for dinner.” Ba dum bum. Rim shot.

    Welcome back, your dreams were your ticket out
    Welcome back, to that same old place that you laughed about
    Well the names have all changed since you hung around
    But those dreams have remained and they've turned around
    Who'd have thought they'd lead ya
    (Who'd have thought they'd lead ya)
    Back here where we need ya
    (Back here where we need ya)
    Yeah we tease her a lot 'cause we got her on the spot
    Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back, welcome back
    Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back
    We always could spot a friend, welcome back
    And I smile when I think how you must have been . . . .

    You are the best!
