steps














It occurred to me this afternoon as I went to the cupboard for some peanuts…how is it that we can put a man on the moon, talk to each other through tiny rectangular objects not plugged into anything and even send each other photos with these little objects (ok, I admit even the plugged in, odd-shaped or wall-mounted versions perplex me), and well, do a whole lot of other amazing things that I don’t even know about because they haven’t made their way to Maberga yet….

…And still we can not produce a chip bag that stays closed just by rolling it. Geez, where are our priorities? I mean, come on, what affects your daily life more – Neil’s giant step for mankind or stale potato chips?

Yep, you guessed it…I’m still having trouble finding interesting topics for my blog posts.

I suppose I could tell you about the full-moon party we had last night. I could tell you about the 8 of us sitting around speaking 3 different languages sometimes in the same sentence, the oooos and ahhhhs when the big and heavy, full yellow ball began inching its way over the mountain. But then I might have to admit that Neil’s small step might have been more significant than, say, the number of clothes pins I have in the snack food cupboard.
