What I know about it:

The top photo is dated July, 1947.  Otherwise no information.


Today is the Two Year Anniversary of my blog!  For various reasons, I decided that I wanted my blog to present a daily offering, and ever since that first post two years ago, I have managed to do it.  I’ve plodded away at it, and now I have something that I am pleased with.  It’s also been thrilling to me to end up with hundreds of people following my blog from all over the world, and fun to make connections with people who comment.  But lately, I’ve been having periods when I’m working two jobs, or otherwise not home, and having to do a daily post has left me a little spent.  Plus, I feel it hasn’t allowed me to give the proper time and consideration to each post.  So I promised myself to make it to the two year mark, and now I’m going to switch from “daily” to “occasionally”.  As much as I gather some people enjoy my daily posts, I don’t think anyone actually relies on them, and I don’t think the planet will fly off its axis if a few days pass between each post.  Most people probably won’t even notice, but for those who do, I wanted to say something so nobody thinks anything is wrong.  And if you just started following my blog, remember that there are over 700 old posts to browse through.  Hopefully now I’ll have a bit more time to explore the blogs of people who have been kind enough to spend time with mine.  Many thanks to everyone who has helped make my blog a rewarding experience for me.  And now, I can’t help it, I’m going to look through some photos to see what might be posted next.  🙂

  1. happy anniversary

  2. Daily posts for two years is quite an accomplishment in itself! Congratulations! Now I will look forward to “occasionally”.

  3. Matt – congrats on two years of blogging every day! Yes, it can get very tiring and overwhelming, but you’ve done a great job. So congrats!!! And thanks for sharing these wonderful images with us.

    I have to be honest, sometimes a post a day is too much – especially when there are other blogs to look at, not to mention my own to write. 🙂 So, “occasionally” will work just fine. Just don’t let “occasionally” drag into “hardly ever”. 🙂

    • Thank you! It was certainly not my intention for my blog to be a chore for anyone (besides me), but I’m glad you’ve made an effort to follow it. Hopefully it will be easier now. 🙂

  4. Happy anniversary! Blog when you can…I’ll enjoy them when they arrive. 🙂

  5. I just had my 2 yr anniversary as well and have also backed off from daily blogging which is, as you say, a grind. Happy anniversary to us both…..cyber toast….here here!

    • Hey, Cheers, Mike! *clink* I’ve enjoyed your blog, but I completely understand taking a step back from it. Better to be able to keep doing something you enjoy than to burn out completely.

  6. Is this photo of a crime scene?

    • Ha! I don’t think so, but it does look suspicious. I think they are just people passed out asleep, the bottom guy I think being a bit hammered.

  7. Congratulations! You do an excellent job in keeping the past present…
