What’s Nhu, er, New?

My blog now has 91 followers, for which and for whom I am grateful.

I’m a bit confused, however.

The latest addition, Suamayphotocopy, doesn’t appear to be a person at all but a list of all the photocopiers known to humankind. In Vietnamese, yet.

And, even more disturbing, the name of the blog, when you get there, is not suamayphotocopy at all. No, my friends, it is suachuamayphotocopy, which borders on the downright deceptive, I’d say.

I appreciate each and every one of my followers, even those of you who are pretending to be a list of photocopiers. As the lyrics of an old hymn go, “Farther along, we’ll know all about it. Farther along, we’ll understand why. Cheer up, my brother [Editor's note. Or sister. --RWP], live in the sunshine. We’ll understand it all by and by.”

I just wish I could read Vietnamese.

In case my quirky sense of humor doesn’t cross the Pacific well, I hasten to add that I am just teasing with this post. I am not upset at you, suamay or suachuamay or whoever you are. You can have any kind of site you like, even one that is a list of photocopiers with Vietnamese notes.

Wait, it’s the site that has Vietnamese notes, not the photocopiers. Isn’t that right?

I hope so.


  1. Your sense of humor travels well from Georgia to Iowa!

  2. Jeannelle of caucused-out Iowa, and that is a good thing.

  3. Interesting...perhaps you will discover by and by!

  4. Obviously, when you get to over ninety, you become of interest to people wanting to sell stuff. Serve you right for being so popular. I'm not jealous at all. Not, really, not in the least.
