The Silver Surfer's web

Bloggie friends -thank you for joining in with Livestrong Day!! I hope you all felt empowered! I had such fun being all yellow! But it was also very sad to read your experiences whether directly or indirectly with the big C. Hugs to you all!

I forgot that my blog turned 9 months old on 1 Oct!! So belated blogbirthday to me. Yay! New blog design, whaddya think!?!?!

But what's this in my inbox?

An email from my 64 year old mother inviting me to join her on her own Facebook account. ?!?!!?

I just know that it won't be long before she'll be all Twitter-y on me while LOL'ing and BRB-ing.

She is now officially a Silver Surfer!

Charlie says: FYI. IMO, that's definitely a spider up there.

Have a marching Monday everyone!

I think that's great about your mom, mine won't even go near the computer.

Happy 9 month blogoversary to you!!!

I love your new look. Lavender is my very favorite color. Get this, we rescued 4 tiny kittens this month. Had to feed them with an eye dropper at first. Now, that got old fast! LOL

We've found homes for 2 and are keeping the other two. That's 4 cats!!! Two are always outside and these may find there way out there too, but we'll see. They're so sweet when they're babies.

Happy 9-month blogoversary! I love the design, Jennifer! It looks terrific!

Hurrah for your mum! Even I don't do Facebook (or Twitter). My own mom didn't get internet until a few years ago!

Charlie, it's your job to get the spider. Some of us humans don't do well with them at all and expect our felines to take care of those creepy crawlies!

happy monday charlie

Clarissa Draper said...

MY mom probably doesn't know what Facebook is. I'm glad you're having a great Livestrong day!


Summer said...

Silver Surfer! So funny! My mother-in-law just joined Facebook too! She was asking me questions about it today. :D

Theresa Milstein said...

I love your new blog look!

Happy belated 9-month blog anniversary.

Good for your mom for joining Facebook. I can't get my dad to join, even bribing him with grandchildren photos. If you join FB, you'd better friend me!

Charlie is so cute in the sink.

Holy Cod! My Dad is more techno than 76!

Deborah said...

I missed the Livestrong day.. :( I've read a lot about it on other blogs too!
Your mother cracks me up! That is great she is on Facebook! Plus 64 is not that old when your my age! :)
Happy Monday my friend!

Silver Surfer was always one of my favorite super heroes. I especially liked his own series -- the first run of it.

Charlie appears ever-vigilant. Gypsy is that way when I come home with chicken fingers ... until hers is all consumed. Then it's up on the puffy arm of my chair while I watch a DVD episode of THE MENTALIST or FRINGE.

Have a great new week, Roland

Esme said...

Watch out you do not get a bath in the sink.

The Chair Speaks said...

Nice new blog design.
Cheers to your mom to learn new things and for keep up. :)

fairyhedgehog said...

I like the new blog look.

Charlie gets around, doesn't he?

Simon Kewin said...

Happy blogoversary. Only 9 months? Amazing. I like the new look too; very stylish.

stacy said...

Hah! That's actually the first time I've seen Charlie with his eyes open. Usually he looks so sleepy.

Love the new look. Cheers!

Brian said...

Happy 9 months, wow, that means a short story is due!!! I love the pretty flower on your blog background, I wanna whiff! Hello Charlie!!!

The Monkeys said...

Happy 9 month blogaversary! We wish you many, many more!

My mother is one of my friends on Facebook and only two years older than yours. It's actually quite cute! I like how, when she comments, even though it's very obvious who is commenting because of her name and picture beside the comment, she still signs her post 'Love, Mom'.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Least your mom is Internet savvy.
And Charlie, get the spider!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We love your new "look" and hope Charlie gave it a two paws up show of appreciation.
We wondered if Charlie was going to join "Facebook" too.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
ps congrats on your 9 month blogoversary.

Lexi said...

So did you let your mother befriend you? My daughter would have none of it.

Sammy and Andy said...

Love your new blog look!!!!!!!

Mama says YAH for your mum joining her and the other silver surfers!!!!

Happy 9 month blogoversary....we're looking forward to months and months and months more.

We're happy to see you are on spider patrol, Charlie!!!!!!!

Bossy Betty said...

Sorry I missed out on Livestrong Day!

Yeah for your mom for keeping up with the times.

Great new look!

Rene said...

How cool that your mom is becoming an internet junkie. Mine doesn't even own a computer, and she's the same age as yours.

Ellie said...

Happy Bogaversary! Loving the new look. And what about your mum?! Mine won't even turn a computer on. LOL.

Hart Johnson said...

Oh, too funny. I think my mother knows better than to try to find me. It would only embarrass her to have to acknowledge what I'm up to... Happy blogiversary!

Marg said...

Well you are getting the language all down pat. Your new page looks terrific. We like the purple.
A big Happy Anniversary to you. Wow nine months.
Hope you have a good week and hope you caught that spider Charlie.

Ginger Jasper said...

I love your new look blog, so restful.. I say brilliant to your grandma Charlie.. The grans rock.. MOL.. Did you get the spider.. Hugs GJ xx

Remington said...

Hi Remington here! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I like your blog. I am going to follow not around the kitchen, just in Blogland! I hope we can be good friends!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Haha! I ma not so far away from being Silver myself so I say good for your Mum! It's always good to keep learning new things no matter how old we are.

I love your new blog look! Very pretty! Happy Bloggy anniversary!

Jackee said...

So sad I missed Livestrong Day! I think I've mentioned it, but my mom is going through her second fight with Ovarian Cancer. Cancer is a blight, a curse.

Love the new look and I love hearing stories of old(er) people who are braving the internet to reconnect/connect with others. You go, Jenn's Mom! :o)

Happy Monday to you, too!

notesfromnadir said...

Love that picture of Charlie in the sink! So cute! :)

wildcatwoodscats said...

I am amazed at how many older folks do use the computer - not that I am not far behind! Good for her! And Happy 9 month blogoversary to you!

lupie said...

I love your new blog design.
At least pictures are still in proportion, unlike my blog and hmmm ... something else too is not in proportion after looking at the mirror!!!

I love your mom too!! :) At 64 and getting IT savvy, now that's a big pat on her shoulder! Then again, you are STILL not on facebook I presume?

I bought some silly stuff at a silly market today and here to tell you to expect some silly stuff soon from someone silly! :)

Soggibottom said...

Why is it yellow. . ? It's always yellow !
hum... my mother wouldn't even know what a key board is..... not funny ... but hey Charlie. see you. X X X
luv yer lots X X X
