Oh geez, you just never know what’s lurking in your email each morning. Lucky for me it’s usually a bill, a newsletter I may or may not read, or Facebook telling me I’ve been tagged. Yikes, if it’s my picture on Facebook, hope I combed my hair that day! On an above average day an email might be from someone who visited the LadiesLoveTaildraggers website for the first time and wrote to tell me how much they enjoyed it – that our members have inspired them and to keep on doing what we’re doing. I love those!
Then there are oddball days; the very rare complaint about LadiesLoveTaildraggers or a difference of opinion about something I’ve posted. Oddball – but not necessarily bad. Opinions – everybody has one and I accept my way isn’t the only way. But when it comes to emails, I draw the line when it comes from an anonymous source that threatens the existence of LadiesLoveTaildraggers.

The email was long and detailed about how the LLT website would be destroyed. Frightening in a lot of ways. I have no doubt that everything noted is possible to accomplish. But the common sense side of my brain says it would take an enormous amount of time and effort to shut down any website, and why pick one that makes no money?!
No payout will come from me. I may be wrong, and others know far me about this stuff than I do, but I’m betting LadiesLoveTaildraggers will be around for a long time.
