Happy Saturday ~ 265
Tomorrow, assuming I post a blog (and I certainly hope to) I will have reached 1,000 blog posts since starting this in 2010.
I used to write a daily journal (started in college) and kept it up for years. I found it to be a great introspective tool and a great mental health exercise. Since I started blogging four years ago, the blog has replaced journaling. I didn’t start with that in mind. Jeanne use to lament to me that she never saw the images I took. I rarely printed the digital images so she was right. I actually started the blog so that she could see at least some of the images I was taking every day.
I now have 276 followers of the blog, plus my Facebook friends, Linkedin friends, and Google Plus friends. So on any given day several folks see my images., which gives me great joy. I love-making images and it is an honor to share those images with others. So thank you very much for visiting the blog when you do. I am truly honored. Oh, and by the way Jeanne still reads my blog everyday and gives me a thumbs up or a “nice blog today.” 🙂
Angie and the kids came over last night because Ben was on call. When he is on call that translates into he is going to spend most of his day at the hospital. Gabby made up to me a little bit yesterday. I’m slowly winning her over. I gave her some snacks and I think that did the trick. 🙂
We had great fun with Josh and Gabby and enjoyed Angie as well. Had a nice dinner and then sat out on the patio watching the birds and showing Josh the different birds. He got his little camera out like Papa and took some pictures of the birds as well.
I had a great time golfing yesterday morning with my friend Jake, Bjorn and Nicki. We played the Blue course at Lacoma (which, by the way is a wonderful course.) It was really hot and humid but there was some breeze so it was bearable. The gnats were not as bad as they have been lately. My game was in great disorder and I shot a smooth 100. It is now painfully obvious that I made the right choice when I decided not to turn pro on the Senior Tour. 🙂
So that was my day off. Pretty fun day. Today we are going to visit our friends Steve and Becki at the Lazy K Farm. I’m looking forward to a wonderful time. Might even take a few images of the event. 🙂
Thanks again for stopping by the blog and your continued support, critiques, comments, and likes. They are so welcomed and beneficial. Enjoy your Saturday and be careful. Yes I did wear a gallon of sunscreen yesterday.
