No idea what I'm doing...

Blog Posted:6/17/2013 10:59:00 AM
Hey folks. I just signed up as a premium member. This blog screen is a trip and I haven't a clue what this is going to look like...too many options for a relic of the stone-age like myself. But hey, if you're gonna get wet, you might as well swim. Right? Can't wait to do a contest....got some in mind.

Thanks. And yeah, he writes some...reads a lot. But don't let the serious look fool you...he's usually about as goofy as I am.

Hi Caleb! I think's it's great that you are now a PM--happy for you! I'm sure you'd post wonderful blogs and contest... You and your wife definitely make a gorgeous and happy couple! Now I definitely see why those girls thought you were a model ;)! Ah, now for the blog screen, I suggest that you be a kid and just go, "What does this button do???" and click away, click click click! That's what I did before anyhow...ok, gotta go, my eyes are half closed already. Have fun!
