I just added a new feature to the site - a "Grab Bag" writing prompt, in which the site randomly selects some words for you to use in your writing.

This post is just a test of that feature.

This post is a Grab Bag which uses the following words: bewildering, following, gene, mangy

I'm a hundred and seven years old, and I've had a full and satisfying life. I have no complaints, no regrets. And yet, there's still something that I find quite bewildering. When I look at my children, my grandchildren, and all the great-grandchildren following after them, I can't help but wonder...with all the rugged good looks and charm in my family, where in the world did those youngsters get the gene that makes them look so mangy?
