Excited!!! I have a Facebook page!
I went to the kitchen to tell Max about it and got the response I suspected I would get.
“I don’t understand Facebook or any other social media,” he said, not looking up from the Chinese pagoda he was building – just for relaxation – out of carrot curls, jicama and asparagus spears. “I like carving vegetables. I do things slowly.”
I said, “You also write with a quill.”
I’m not head over heels about being fast, either, but that’s the way things go nowadays. If you’re not in the swim, you’re out of the swim. And I need to keep paddling to spread the word about Sylvia’s Journal to garner more readers and subscribers.
“Yes. It was good enough for Shakespeare, it’s good enough for me.” Then he smiled and kissed me on the cheek. “But you know I support you.”
He does. But Max’s pace is slow and considered.
When we first started Presentation Is Everything, there was no FedEx, so he rode to New York on the train from Philadelphia with a tie-string portfolio under his arm to present sketches to his clients. Then came FedEx and FAX. Since I was the manager of the company, I did the sending. Then came computers and scanning and I did that for the company, too.

My Facebook page address is: https://www.facebook.com/SylviaS1234/
Anyone can go on this address to see what I post but in order to receive notifications and to comment, you need to have a Facebook account.
I sent the announcement about the Facebook page to my friends:
Whoa!!! Totally swaggy!!! Good luck to my favorite artist and new Facebook Friend!
I had to look up the meaning of “swaggy” and found it meant “cool” or “awesome.” Ah, youth or “yute” as it’s called now.
Ping! Aunt Daisy:
Sylvia Honey! Facebook! You’re lookin’ at the horizon bein’ bucked on a wild stallion! You go, cowgirl! – Marisol told me she’d sign me up for a Facebook account so’s I could get your news first hand. Beats the Pony Express!
Ping! Bobo and Cutlass:
Too, too modern of you, Sylvia, Darling! We know nothing about Facebook or how to use it so are getting our (very cute) computer guy in to hook us up! Thanks for an excuse to hire Mr. Eye Candy!
Ping! Myrna Von Nettel, Max’s sister:
Oh, too divine! And so forward-looking of you, Sylvia, dear! I didn’t know you could figure out how to use Facebook. I thought, surely, you were still using a typewriter and had someone transcribe your posts. Air kisses and wishing you “Break a leg!” Or is that for the theater????
Ping! Otto Von Nettel, Myrna’s husband:
Are you sure you want to do this? It’s so unlike you.
Otto – ever positive and forward thinking.
I hope to gain following but mostly to have fun with it. So watch for posts, artwork and who knows what else? Sylvia is unstoppable!
Here I go with this latest phase in Sylvia’s world. Wish me luck!
