Why I Still Read the Newspaper…with RELISH!

For those of you who take advantage of digital technology to keep up with current affairs in your communities, states, country, or the world, you don’t know what you are missing.

Perhaps it’s because you are too young to remember what it was like to open a newspaper. The sound, the smell, and the ink on your fingers.  Or maybe you don’t have the leisure time every day to sit and peruse your local rag.

Whatever the reason, it’s too bad, you are missing out on a truly satisfying and, sometimes, very entertaining past time.

This is my Ode To Print…with sincere thanks for all the years of joy.

Hope you enjoy as much as I do…

Give up the rag?

Hi everyone! Welcome to 50 Shades of Gray Hair. 50 Shades is my blog of life over the hill, where each day is full of delicious opportunities to earn another gray hair. I stopped declaring war on the gray when I began this blog years ago. Instead, I embrace and celebrate them along with whatever life decides to throw my way, with (sarcasm forward) humor and an optimistic eye to the future. I think. I hope? I don't know. At any rate...it's real, it's honest, it's full of 4 letter words, and it's me...on a platter. I sincerely welcome you all to my porch....♥♥Rhonda

  1. My Dad reads a newspaper cover to cover and when I go to Turkey all he wants me to bring back as a gift are back copies of their newspapers printed in English – he tells me it’s one of life’s pleasures sitting there with a cup of tea so will show him this tomorrow


    1. Agree with your Dad and come from a long line of the same. We can get the same info from the web…but it is NOT the same! Yay Dad! And I hope he has a laugh. 🙂


        1. Oh how very kind of him, and thank you for sharing them with him. I take so many of the everyday that I worry they become boring to others…but for me, the beauty in the everyday is what gets my lens excited. lol. appreciate it Tink and tell your Dad I say thank you. xoxo


            1. okay, now you are making me blush. I have no illusions…just know that when something moves me enough to stop and take a picture…it makes me happy. That others enjoy it is a bonus, and most times, a complete surprise. 🙂


  2. All right, was good laugh. Especially the A-Rod bit. Wang hurt indeed… How’re you doing Miss S. Belle? I have been hibernating in the cold Canadian spring but poked my head out a couple of days ago in response to a random ray of sunshine.


    1. Hey you!! Was just thinking of you the other day….went to your blog…went to FB…nada. Then got an email of your newest post…course I was on the road, headed back up north. Home now, will go read your latest with relish (hehe) and YAY…good to see you. And I HEAR that random ray of sunshine thing…good grief…brrrr


Nice-n-Easy...but tell it like it is
