November 22nd

This is a test on increase in font size. Well, that seems to work well, it was just a bit cramped in the 12 px size. I kept losing my place, or having to backtrack. This should work out

Got that sorted for now.I have an appointment next week to have my eyes checked, I've been reading the paper by peering over the top of them.I hope my cataracts have not worsened.

EEK! there is only 4 minutes to midnight to get this in on the 22nd. I have found a poem I want to share, It is
The Woman I will be.

I shall wear diamonds and a wide brimmed hat with ribbons and flowers on it.
And I shall spend my social security on white wine and carrots.
And sit in the alley of my barn and listen to my horses breathe.
I will sneak out in the middle of a summer night
And ride the dappled mare across the moon struck meadow
If old bones will allow.
And when people come to call, I will smile and nod,
As I walk them past the gardens to the barn
And show, instead, the flowers growing there
In stalls fresh-lined with straw.
I will shovel and sweat and wear hay in my hair as if it were a jewel.
And I will be an embarrassment to all who look down on me,
Those who have not yet found the peace in being free
To love a horse as a friend,
A friend who waits at midnight hour
With nuzzle and nicker and patient eyes
For the Woman I will be when I am old.

Until tomorrow

Let's see if it works in comments too!

Do you know when you are writing your blog at the bottom of the post next to the "save" button there is a button that says "preview"? Click that and it will show you exactly what your blog will look like if you were to hit "publish". It is how I proofread my posts before publishing [preview will only let you see it, it won't publish].

Have a good one.
