I told her no, I hadn't heard from Judy White in over 15 years, but...hmm, I couldn't think who Judy Smith was either. Well, Judy is someone who doesn't post often but she'd recently changed her profile photo and the more I looked at it the more I thought, dang, that does look like Judy White.
Well, a few e-mails later and the three of us were on a conference call, happily catching up on lost years. I had originally "friended" Judy ages ago without realizing who she was. (We had another round-about connection and I thought she'd friended me because of it.) Since she doesn't post much, I'd never caught on.
It's always a treat to find an old friend on Facebook, but I don't often find one hiding among my own friends.
Speaking of Facebook - not all my FB experiences are going as well. I've got my new LD Masterson FB page up and I've got a lovely group of friends already but I'm having a terrible problem with the page. The Sort button is missing! You know, the button on your NewsFeed that is supposed to give the option of displaying the most recent posts first. It's not there, which means I can't get a "Most Recent" sort, which means I can't find the latest posts, which means I'm missing the chance to Like or Comment on what my friends have to say.
I've researched the problem on Facebook and Google and it appears to have happened before to different people but no one has a solution. Sometimes the button just re-appears. I don't know what I'm going to do if it doesn't. But if you're one of my friends on that page, please understand that I'm not ignoring your posts. I most likely haven't seen them.
Now, as promised, here are the answers to last Wednesday's riddles.
1 - In California, you can't take a picture of a man with a wooden leg. Why not?
You can't take a picture with a wooden leg, you need a camera.
2 - Which is correct to say, "The yolk of the egg is white." or "The yolk of the egg are white."
Neither. The yolk of an egg is yellow.
3 - Why did the elephant sit on the marshmallow?
(I love the last one because I have a wonderful memory of my youngest telling it to my mom when he was around five and I can still hear her laughing.)
Congratulations to Heather M. Gardner, Maryann Miller and all of you who figured out all three but kept quiet to give others a chance.
