Into The Void?

That's where it feels as though Blogger has sent Jinksy, for that was my bloggy identity right from day one. Penelope always struck me as too straight laced and toffee nosed, as well as a bit long a name to use amongst friends, although it was great for those in authority when they wanted to show their displeasure at something I'd done. Can you not hear them utter the 'PeNELope!' (centre syllable stressed) which was capable of stopping me in my tracks?

I'd like to thank Eddie Blue Lights for leaving a comment on my previous post. As I seem unable to get a normal 'Reply' option under his comment to work, I have resorted to posting one here.
Sorry, Eddie, but the thought of having to invent another Gmail address especially to accommodate the Jinksy signature on comments I try to make, fills me with trepidation. I shall remain in The Void which Blogger seems to have created, and continue scrabbling around for any helpful suggestions from other Bloggers who have been similarly afflicted.

Thanks also go to Smitonius And Sonata for their alerting me to the fact that I'm not alone in my frustration! I felt much better once I read other cries for help in the badly named 'HELP' section, which is proving to be of no help at all as far as I can see...

How slow all us long term bloggers have become, barely posting monthly now.
Glad to see that you still have a bogland address. Lots of good wishes coming your way.

By George! I think I've cracked it! If I have, there will be the name JInksy on this comment - at last!

Truth is stranger than fiction! After all my complaining about not being able to leave a comment, Firefox appears to have restored my world to its former Jinksyfication!

Leaving you a comment, Jinksy, to see if things are back to normal. XX

Thank you Pen, what a nice thing to say. I remember a lady called Ada used to say nice things like that when she was dunk, but I think she is too busy now with her menfolk. xx

Well, Eddie, like a bear to her den, Ada hibernated to write a novel, while Cad enjoyed the peace and quiet of his shed. Only Trellissimo knows where Trellissimo hides!

Goodness me - at last, some old names I recognise! Do any of you know where Cad and Ada have gone? I've been searching for them, with no success...

Last I heard they went to Love Island but they have never been seen again . .

Congratulaions Pen. A star for perseverance.
