Meet the 'Old Professor'...


I was catching up my blogging when I went to one of my (many) favorite sites, Meggie Cat, when I noticed something new in her side bar. Something about an old professor. I was intrigued. I clicked on the link and was brought to a delightful, witty blog. It is written by an 85 year 'young', retired professor, who lives in Carmel (very nice). Paul is the father of 'Meggie Cat'. I was so drawn in by his writing I had to read ALL of his wonderful posts. I think you will find his blog insightful and full of witty humor. I really do love his perspective on things. I have spent a good many hour, browsing through his posts. I have learned that he was a pilot in WWII, he has horses, lives in Carmel, his favorite fruit is a nectarine and the posts keep coming. It really has been wonderful to read his posts. I have caught myself laughing out loud at some of his wittiest posts. Paul has great insight and I just had to post about my 'new blogging friend'.
And who couldn't use a new friend...right? Please go and have a good read. It really was one of my highlights for the evening. Introducing The Old Professor.

With much love,

Aw shucks,Robyn. How nice of you to say such gracious things. I just want you to know that I am very appreciative. At my age I don't get the same reviews as I did "back then". Or as often.
Thanks. You made my day.

Hi Robyn,

Just popping in to visit your blog - I'm your partner in the latest Sweet Goodness swap. Looks like you have taken part in all sorts of neat swaps throughout the year! Your Japanese Tea Garden photos are gorgeous.

Am looking forward to your 20 question responses - and even have a few ideas of goodies in mind just from perusing your blog.

Peace ~

I will have to check him out. I have a thing for adorable old men and have ever since my grandpa died when I was 12. I'll go see if he is adoptable!

When Meggiecat was on hiatus, I kept looking on his blog to see if he would mention how she was doing as I missed her posts. I think it's ever so grand that he has a blog and such thoughtful and fun things to say and share with everyone.

That's great! I loved the Tiger Woods shaving post!!!

I wonder if we will still be blogging when we are in our 80s?

Hey Robyn,
Like Cecile said, it is great that you are blogging again. Thanks for the link; I will try to wrest the home pc from my 15 year old and go visit him at the weekend. Perhaps I will be inspired to keep blogging myself.

Cheeers and beers,
Mark.

Hey Robyn,
