WALT WRITING FIRST BLOG
Outer Banks, NC 9-21-08
 My son, Mark, reminded me that I have now been writing blogs for three years.  While the guest of he and his wife, Mary Kay, at an Outer Banks, NC beach house, Mark taught me to write blogs.

 Naturally a big wind bag, uh, story teller, writing blogs has become a new form of sounding off.  Love it!

BARBERTON, OHIO IS BUILT AROUND BEAUTIFUL LAKE ANNA
My Home Is One Block From This View
 My question is, "How am I doing"?  Of course, my family and friends would reply favorable.  Can they do less?  Not really!  How am I doing in comparison to my peers?  Yes, but who are my peers?  How does my blog compare to those of my fellow Barberton citizens.  That would be one peer measurement, huh? 

Barberton has a population of 26,533; 12,380 female and 14,153 males.  The median age is 37.2, somewhat older than the state average of 36.2 years but well below my 80 years.  It is known as the "MAGIC CITY" because it seemingly just sprung up overnight, and it's color is purple.
