About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you.

      Hi, SarahC. I thought I had been missing you so I checked out your blog. I find you haven’t been on very much recently. Welcome back. Get a running jump into this new year. I couldn’t find where to comment or like on your blog. Is it there?

      • SarahC says:

        I’ve been quiet and busy in life….yes somewhere I think that you can but maybe not? I’m getting ready to try to get the blog going slowly. I have had someone else say they couldn’t comment or was it like.
        Maybe tablet later i can see 👀 lol.
        Living in the camper during remodel no internet…
        Partly why so little rambling for awhile !

          So here’s wishing you an exciting entry back into more steady blogging. But “no internet” doesn’t sound inviting. I go to the library sometimes if power/internet is off. Happy 2021 to you.

          • SarahC says:

            Yes our one library is closed and another town is certain days and I work some days miss those days. I m working to get more dataon my phone plans …..yes it is fun finding old blogging neighbors from before 💝😀
