Do I know what I'm doing here?

First, let me be clear.

I am of an age that I don't just remember, but I remember (and miss SOME of the following) ..... typewriters
carbon paper
rotary phones
TVs that remained on the same channel all night because no one wanted to cross the room to change it
albums, 45s and LPs
the summer of love
the Beatles arrival in NYC
Woodstock (never got closer than about 50 miles away)
Timothy Leary
Elvis, The Everly Brothers and Buddy Holly
The moon landing
Castro coming to NYC and staying at the Theresa Hotel in Harlem rather than the Waldorf
and so on ---

Don't want to bore you with things I remember which are probably things you've never heard of or which are only something you know about from Jeopardy or Trivial Pursuit.

Interesting thing about a blog - I just found myself saying "you" three times in the above sentence.

Is there a "you" reading this? Isn't that what blogs are all about. Or am I really just talking to myself.

Clearly from the list of things above you (there I go again) will realize that I am not of the generation born to blogs, twitters, tweets, text messages, etc. But a blog seemed like something I could handle, even though I don't really know how they work in terms of "connecting" with people. I guess I'll find out if this does connect and if it does I'll learn how it works.

Don't know the etiquette for a first blog posting, but probably old manners work well here, too --- be short and sweet and to the point.

Let me know if "you" are there. I guess I'll write some more over the weekend (to get to the explanation for the title of this blog, "What if, I Wonder and Peeves."
