Wouldn’t you like to expose your newer readers to some of your earlier posts that they might never have seen? Or remind your long term followers of posts that they might not remember? Each Friday I will publish a post I wrote on this exact date in a previous year.
How about you? Why don’t you reach back into your own archives and highlight a post that you wrote on this very date in a previous year? You can repost your Friday Flashback post on your blog and pingback to this post. Or you can just write a comment below with a link to the post you selected.
If you’ve been blogging for less than a year, go ahead and choose a post that you previously published on this day (the 11th) of any month within the past year and link to that post in a comment.

A River in Eqypt
“Come on over and have a seat kids,” Uncle Matt said to his niece and nephew. “Did I ever tell you about the time that…”
Bobby cut his uncle off. “I’m sorry, Uncle Matt, but Betty and I have to be someplace. Maybe you can tell us about whatever you were going to tell us when we get back.”
“Sure kids,” Uncle Matt said. “It can wait until the two of you return.
Bobby and Betty grabbed their jackets and ran outside. “Phew,” said Betty. “That was quick thinking.”
“No way I was going to sit through another one of Uncle Matt’s long, incoherent stories about something he did in his ‘prime,’” said Bobby.
“I know,” Betty said. “His stories meander from one thing to another and go on forever. And he goes into so much unnecessary detail. I think he’s, like, anile.
“Anile?” Bobby said. “Do you mean that his stories meander like the Nile River?”
“No,” Betty responded. “I mean anile, as in both anal and senile.”
Written for today’s one-word prompt, “meander.”
