My Blog – Donald J. Claxton

The Tea | By Donald J. Claxton | aka My Blog

Welcome to The Tea. I am Donald J. Claxton and this is my blog. 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 shuttered GrammaticArtist.com, as well as ClaxtonCreative.com. There are 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 closing down each of the other two sites, I exported the blog posts and pages from the other two and then 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 of my three daughters uses the term “The Tea” all the time. My eldest daughter, the day I personalized the photo background design, informed me I am using it as a malapropism of sorts. It doesn’t mean, “Here’s the scoop.” Well, it does, but not in the way I thought.

Gettysburg Address in 2020
