I'm like a bit player on television. I'm excited the first time somebody recognizes me in public. I'm puffed up and proud.
I was rolling down the hall in ugly baggy shorts, without hearing aids, on my way home from the exercise room (I rowed three miles today, thank you,) and passed fellow resident Doris, sitting in hall with a visitor, and she mentioned my name.
"You're Chuck Ferris?" He introduced himself and said, "I read your Dribble. I read David Burke's blog, and sometimes I click on yours." Even without hearing aids I heard that.
Wow, I must be on Dave's sidebar, and, oh oh, I haven't put him on mine. Sorry, Dave, I'll attend to that. I was astounded to meet a reader, and except for the "sometimes" I was pretty puffed up.
If this keeps up, I may start a fan club. Anyone for a Dribble T-shirt?
