You Don't Know Who You Are. . .

. . . but if you're blogging on Typepad, my comments refuse to appear on your blog. Not that that is an earth-shattering piece of news. But just so you know.

I especially wanted my comment on the Chessie cat playing cards to appear on a certain
blog, because I used to be an attorney for Chessie Railroads and the Lovely Daughter's little stuffed Chessie cat still sits on one of my bedroom bookshelves and so, of course, I recognized Chessie immediately.

I wanted someone else to know that I did not mean to be rude and abrupt with respect to what I thought was a fascinating
series of posts, the focus of which just caught me off-balance at a bad moment. I had more to say, of course, but I guess I will have to say it on my own blog sometime.

And I had something to say about responding to the presence of God in our everyday lives in the context of another
discussion, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was. Obviously a comment so brilliant that its loss to posterity is a devastating one.

Well. If you are one of the authors referenced above and you happen to be reading this, now you know. I'll try again sometime, eventually, someday. I don't know whether the problem is with Blogger or Typepad or my own server, but I have pretty much lost patience with the glitches and barriers between me and my comments.

You read the best blogs! How do you find them? When I go blog surfing, I usually end up with a pile of beauty tips and celebrity pics.

It's gotta be you - I tried leaving a comment on my own blog (using the entry fields, not TypeKey) and it worked fine.

If you can help me diagnose it I'll try to fix it. What error are you getting?
