My Blog – Donald J. Claxton

Donald J. Claxton’s Blog Page

My middle, Gen Z daughter, the older of the twins by seven whole minutes, says I should refer to Donald J. Claxton’s blog page instead as, “The Tea.”

In the summer of 2021, I realized my social media presence needed an overhaul. As a result, one aspect of the project compelled me to create DonaldJClaxton.com.

I combined my previous sites, GrammaticArtist.com, and ClaxtonCreative.com.

You will find posts here from as far back as 2008 when I went by “Daddy Claxton.”

A hat tip to Roy Claxton Acuff, who in the song, Wabash Cannonball, toasts, “Well, here’s to Daddy Claxton. May his name forever stand in the courts throughout our land.”

Before merging the two sites, I exported the blog posts and pages from the other two and attempted to import them here.

Most of the GA.com posts came across well. The Claxton Creative site? Not so much.

While doing all the other activities involved here, I’m making progress in getting lost photos, etc. reloaded to the posts. If you need a particular photo, please let me know. DJC

PS: One another of my three daughters says the term “The Tea,” which is personalized in the photo above, informed me this is a malapropism. “The Tea,” doesn’t mean, “Here’s the scoop.” Well, it does, but not in the way I thought. I think. But I’m sticking with it!

I Can’t Keep Counting Coronavirus Numbers….

Today I begin what I hope will become a regular series of Coronavirus updates based a much as possible on fact, with observations of whether or not the mainstream media in America and politicians are using the spread of COVID-19 as a politicized weapon. The source I...
