Nine Years Later …

Happy Anniversary with!
You registered on 9 years ago.
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.


Although this particular blog started nine years ago today, I have been with WordPress a lot longer. I had a different blog for three or four years. But this is the longest I have kept one updated. I have other blogs on both WordPress and Blogger, but this is the one I update the most.
Thanks everyone who likes, comments or just silently visits.

The Birds and a Thank You

I took the photos of the seagulls taking flight on my iPhone a couple of days ago, and the others today. Once again I was in the right place at the right time for the ducks just taking off with the hen at the front giving flying orders to the two drakes behind it seems.

I want to thank everybody who has visited my blog over the last few days. My poem, Between The Pages, has had more likes in 36 hours than any other post has in all the years. I have always smiled when likes reach 50, and then the occasional one will reach 60, but that post, that exceeded 110 (one hundred and ten) likes. Foggy is close behind with mid eighties. Thank you all for visiting my blog, I seriously do appreciate it. I want to give special thanks to

I have been stunned in the last couple of days. Two days ago, I had 920 people who read my blog. Then on December 9th, I received this:



Followed yesterday, by this:



So I want to say thank you for everyone who has now decided to read my blog. I appreciate all 947 of you.

I would thank you all personally, but that would take a little time.
