This is my 600th post. I should totally do something special for the occasion, but I am having one of those days. So I shall improvise.
This was my first post on this blog. Totally pedestrian. Missionaries do come to this house, by the way. Jehovah's Witnesses, though, not Mormons. They come on a regular basis to proffer copies of The Watchtower, which in my elder years I have no interest in reading. I think Erik scandalized the last one by answering the door shirtless.
This was the first picture to ever appear on this blog:
This is little seven-year-old Miss Linda, taken back in April:
Yeah, I'm totally going to make this a then-and-now post.
Esther, in the first pic of her I have on this blog:
Here she is about a week ago, giving me her serious face:
Here she is this past week:
This was my first profile picture:
Now, for perhaps the biggest change of all...
Full disclosure: this post actually took two days to write. I'm in a much better mood today (Sunday) than I was yesterday.
More looking back:
100th Post-> Politics & Looks
200th Post-> If he comes in, I'm going out
300th Post-> Every week, it is something new (a rant)
400th Post-> Yet more on the bullying thing
500th Post-> 30 Days of Truth: Day 18
Pretty easy to see how much I've picked up the pace with my blogging over the past couple of years, eh? I'm betting it's not going to take me nearly another four years to hit 1000 posts...
