Best tweets from last month
I figure have about five or six tweet-worthy thoughts for every hour I spend in The Pond. We’re all bantering about something and it gets pretty funny. Some one will say a tweet-inspiring thought and I think, dang, I should write that one down.
But interrupting the joshing to tweet might risk ruining all the jolly spontaneity and that would be a shame.
Still, I look at the following 24 and think, hmmm, not bad. These monthly round-ups would be much better if I did them once every two or three months. But monthly is a tidy way to organize them so don’t blame me.
You’re welcome or check in at 8days2amish or just check in here around the end of each month. Either way, I’ll try and make sure you see all the good stuff.
Oh, and . . . Go Bucs! I’m thinking today’s a must win.
