My New "Friend," Kirk Douglas

You may remember that I blogged about Kirk Douglas's blog last week.  I commented to a post of his asking if he really does the blogging or is it someone else.  Well, today, just a few minutes ago, rather bored here at the computer and a bit annoyed that although I post about twice a day on two blogs, there have been almost no comments (so I don't know if anyone really reads my posts) I found myself checking his blog.

Would you believe that he replied to my question and referred to me as his "friend!?"

I commented, of course.  It will probably take a while to be posted since comments to his blog are moderated.  And in case you're curious, all the technical stuff, including the typing is done by staff, but he does dictate, and at 93 that's great.

I'm here, I'm here, I'm here! I just feel like a stalker commenting on every post. But you're on my feed and most of your posts get read.

And then I dictate my comments to my team of a dozen magical elves along with my own fourteen simultaneous blog posts and attempts at professional journalism.

Well, everything but the part about the elves is true. ;-)

Thanks Jennifer. Just a minor note that the stalker is the silent one who doesn't comment and tries not to leave any sign...
I really appreciate your comments.

amazing, isn't it?

How wonderful for you! An answer from Kirk!

And, even though he dictates it, the response is from his heart. How can we expect him to actually do the typing...I know speaking for myself, at times I have a hard time continually typing.

Lucky you...a response to cherish.

He's an amazing person and it's wise at his age and health to use staff like that.
