A Funeral In The Bloggerhood

14 Jul

So most of you know that I’ve been whining about the big Three-Oh around the corner. I was. Until today, that is. Nothing like some solid numbers to keep things in perspective. 30 seems infinitesimally teensy-weensy when you think about 108. That’s how old she was when she passed away today. The oldest blogger on the planet is no longer among us.

R.I.P., Olive. There’s sure to be wireless connectivity where you are.

    Yes, kind of puts things in perspective, doesn’t it?.
    I worried about the 30 & then the 40 last year but I’ve lived through both & life is good:)

    Thanks for sharing. I wasn’t aware. Missed so much! And she sings happy songs, indeed. RIP, oldest lady of the blogworld.

    Aunty G & Dipali: It is, isn’t it? To be born in such a drastically different era and adapt to changes at an age when your contemporaries are long gone takes a special kind of personality.

    Rajni: Amen! 🙂

    Pallavi: Hey Pallu, is there any way I can email you? Let me know.

    But what would wisdom itself have to impart to me… surely not it’s neon pyjamas? Really?
    Oh, bring ’em on! I could use some 😉

    Pallavi: For once, I actually have some to share. 😉 Indulge me. Will write.

    Please do so before I die of curiosity.

    Pallavi: Done. 🙂

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
