Today I inserted a post in the archives, because I want to fill in the gaps from the months and months when I wasn't posting. Besides that, I also want to address the technical challenges that are vexing me. Blogger needs updating, but I am afraid it is a format or app or dinosaur that Google has likely entirely abandoned. There are so many obstacles and glitches and features that seem to be obsolete. It is very frustrating. Anyway, despite all of that, people seem to have found Chickenblog, again, and I have to say your comments are delightful. Thank you. (Have I mentioned that I cannot figure out how to create paragraphs?? Nothing in html or formatting is any use. Help? Sorry.) Well. Thank you for your patience. And, here is a ratty-rat that I recently finished. I have been doing embroidery on two yards of linen. I bring it when I travel, so I can wrap up, or make shade, and it gives me a canvas for stitching, on planes, and trains, on barges. It makes me very happy.

Absolutely darling! I do sock knitting when I travel. I haven't quite mastered the art of paragraphs either. I simply add a line, like this.

Then start the next paragraph. It at least makes it more readable, if nothing else.

I, too, have noticed things that don't seem to work on here. Sigh. Oh, well, still useable, I guess...

Sock knitters leave me in awe! Well, knitters generally leave me awestruck, but there is something extra impressive about making two of the same! Making a matching pair would be my undoing.
As for the paragraphs, or any kind of space... nothing works. Not literal taps on the space bar, nor html, nothing. There must be a trick, and I have searched, and experimented, to no avail. I also lost the spellcheck/autocorrect, and that is tragic. And formatting... my layout is dropping to the very bottom of the page! As you say, "still useable," but I hope that there is hope of these issues being resolved.
