Another reality check

Every now and then, I get a sharp reminder of just how insignificant this stupid blog of mine is. I was checking over the stats and I saw that I was now averaging a whole thirty one visitors a day, Oh boy!  I pointed this fact out to Puff, and how it even seems that someone from Mountain View, California, seems to be slowly reading the entire blog, including that blasted history I wrote.

"Um, honey," my wife said slowly.  "That's a googlebot program.  They work according to algorithms as a way of locating information so Google has the information at hand when someone tries to look it up."

"So, about half my recent hits are nothing but a program?"

"'Fraid so."

I should have known.

Daddy,
your stats don't count all the times that I come in a read and look at your pictures.

I write anything because I didn't know how.

Mom showed how to this time.

If you want I will keep writing you notes.

Leave it to Puff to take us all down a notch or two when our blogs get a lot of hits ;)

@mary333.
Glad I could be of service.

As for you Bear, My Dearheart;
Remember, your father, Italy, and the chickens? I am only fulfilling my God-Given vocation dear.

This blogger just made a commitment to remain unmarried.

Puff the Magic Dragon said...

Ah, geez, I destroyed a young lady'a dream. I've taken Dim out of the marriage and therefore the gene pool.

There will be no DimLamp

There will never be any dimtreelights.

What have I done? How great is my error?

Soon your name will be a malediction on the lips of all the ladies of Central New York

Snicker! You're stats are about to increase - Googlebots not included ;)

The comments are as funny as the post. I think your wife just deflated half of the blogosphere!

Huh, you think you can scare me? My name has been a malediction around here for years, years I say..

For everyone else I offer you the following.
