Two years of sprawling ramshackle goodness

2 years and 1007 posts ago I started this blog:
I'm finally going to follow my kids' examples and start a blog. What I hope to do is have a place where I can spout off to a potentially large audience (much larger, anyway, than family campouts, holiday meals and parties) and also to connect folks with widely varying interests and backgrounds. We'll see.
I'm still having fun with it. Best of all has been all the cool stuff I found because you stopped by here. Thank you!

And now, to celebrate my second year of blogging, I'm going to continue a tradition that I started on last year's anniversary. I'm going to link to one of the first pictures I posted-- what is now possibly the most popular gut surgery picture on the internet.

See you next year!

I can certainly see why that is the most popular gut surgery photo on the interwebz. I mean that is some gut surgery. What a lovely way to commemorate your blogoversary. Have a great one!

Happy Blogiversary!

I almost feel like we the audience have gotten the better part of the deal, as we don't have to deal the airlines, crooks, crooked airlines, occasional marginal restaurants, and being stuck in airports.

You have taken us down South, through the Midwest and even to Vegas (thank you very much, uh-huh). We have sampled all the fine cuisines that America has had to offer, plenty of libations and oh, bacon!

I think that I speak for your audience when I look forward to your further adventures and that we feel so much safer with you exposing the lurking clowns in this world.
