PaperGirl Rides Again!

Pin for WWII Victory Girls, who were the real Rosie The Riveters, I've learned. It's not that I have a huge thing for the WWII ladies, but the images are just so great.

Good gravy that was awful!

The server. It had problems. There had to be a migration. The migration, it had problems. I was without you. Lost. Lost at sea. Lost at sea with no peanut butter. Lost at sea with no peanut butter, no coffee.

It was horrible! And over my birthday, too! What a rip-off!

Well, anyhow, PaperGirl and the site are both back up, obviously, and I apologize for any inconvencience. If not being able to access my blog rates anywhere near an inconvenience for even a handful of people, why, I’ve made it in this world.

Tomorrow, I can begin making the changes to the website I’ve long needed to make (turns out the server problem had to be handled first, bleh) and a fresh paper — PaperGirl, that is. What will we discover, friend? I’m considering observations on anything from Door County, Wisconsin, to turning [REDACTED] years old yesterday, or perhaps I’ll offer Reasons To Adore Yuri, or explain the kitten puppet I bought and named Belli. I promise no politics, no people-bashing, and no harsh language

Does that make my blog frivolous?

It does??

Welcome home, baby!

    I had shared your post regarding the wearing if overalls with my daughters just before PaperGirl went down for refurbishment. Will your July posts be made available in the archives?

    So glad you’re back!

      Yes, ma’am! In the server transfer, some posts got chomped, but they will be back soon! I’ve got a guy working on it. Believe me, I will not rest till that’s done. Thanks for reading (and sharing!) Linda. 🙂

    I worry about you! I was away for a couple of days and there was no posts from you on my blog aggregator and I was worried. (For some reason, Feedly didn’t take your last posts even though Papergirl is still in my subscription list) I look forward to your posts everyday.
