“Have you been away?” my Zumba buddy wanted to know. “I’ve missed your blog posts.”

“No,” I said. “I’ve been right here at home, putting up my weekly posts, rain or shine, every Thursday morning.”

“Hmm. I haven’t been getting them.”

Hmm, indeed. Come to think of it, Jon had mentioned the other day that he never saw the Fourth of July post I wrote about him, complete with a photo of Jon in front of our house in a heroic, patriotic pose hoisting our American flag for all to see.

I checked in with my webmaster. She checked the record. And sure enough, six missing blog posts: the last one to go out to my subscribers was dated June 1.

Here are the missing blog posts. Have fun.
