So now I am on Facebook. Laugh all you want.

Actually, I signed up a few years ago and had no need for it so I conveniently forgot the password.

Here we are in 2008. My brother is on Facebook, my sister is on Facebook, my grandmother is on Facebook. So as not to be outdone by a great depression-era computer junkie, I am now
on Facebook yet again.

Here's the kicker, I wasn't signed up for more than 18 hours and now miraculously, I have 66 new friends. Frankly, I didn't think I knew 66 people.

Allow me to digress a bit. Here's a snapshot of a typical day for me and my wife: Work, nap, working out, dinner, Bob the Builder, Thomas the Tank Engine, snack, sleep...in this

Since each day is jam-packed with so much social interaction, I find it very difficult to welcome yet more friends into my universe. So memo to my 66 new friends? I don't think I can fit you in.

Yet to keep up with the Joneses, I probably should keep my Facebook page active.

I, however, fully expect 66 Christmas Cards from these friends I didn't know I had.
