22 R by Roger

I just completed my 13th year of blogging. It’s called Ramblin’ with Roger after a radio personality named John Gambling, who had a radio show called Rambling with Gambling.

For the first five years, I blogged at rogerowengreen.blogspot.com. In fact, that URL is still there, making the links I was following eight years ago still prominent. The blog itself is still there, below all of the links. There are a couple random posts after 2010.

When I won my own URL for six months in some Internet contest, I decided I needed a logo. So I used the drawing above that my friend, the late Raoul Vezina, drew for my friend Lynne. Lynne’s husband Dan scanned it for me, and voila!

I use the duck on Facebook and Twitter (ersie), but oddly, not on LinkedIn.

Of course, I’ve been participating with ABC Wednesday since Round 3. I hope you come visit me and all the other fine folks from ‘ROUND the world.

Round 21 – R


Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

Today I want to introduce a Dutch Lady who has earned the title of being the greatest Jazz-singing artist The Netherlands has had so far. She was born in Rotterdam on december 21st 1924 and passed away on july 28, 2013. She often performed with her husband who was a wonderful musician as wel. Her name is Rita Reys.  I could tell al lot about her but you can all read it HERE

So without further… wishing you lots of joy listening to her… the song I’ve chosen is very appropriate for the time of year and one of my favorites by her also:

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-day / – week!
