A few weeks ago I mentioned that I had started a new blog
about my hometown Merritton, Ontario
and was hoping to inspire others Merritton people to blog
their stories about the old town.
On one hand I haven't been very successful. I didn't realizethat blogging is a unique form of writing to which not all people
On the other hand the face book group that I set up to go alongwith the blog is becoming quite popular. More and more folks
are connecting with long lost friends and the "do you rememberwhen ..." conversations are long and always amusing.
Old photos are coming out of albums and being posted foreverybody to see.
People we've lost are being mourned.
I'm still hoping to round up more bloggers but for nowI'm one happy Cave Springs* camper!
* Cave Springs was the name of the camp a
lot of Merritton kids went to in the summer
