What is a random chit chat, by the way? Does anyone know the answer to that? It came by way of an idea introduced by one of my friends who, in turn, kindly volunteered to give the introductory notes to this here blog of mine. It was her suggestion, really. She suggested that I live up to my reputation in real life and continue to be the garrulous old girl I’ve always been. She said it’s a soft theme to use in a blog because it means you can pretty much talk about anything under the sun that tickles your fancy.
