Eleven Years on Blogspot

The Good: Today marks 11 years of blogging! Here is a screenshot of my first post. Later this week I'll celebrate another blogiversary: my 56-hundredth post!

Even though time seems to pass quickly, 2005 was a long time ago. We were were spending that summer in Glebe Harbor with the idea of making it our permanent home. However, the location was just too isolated for me. By the way, I made my first website back in 1997. That really feels like ancient history now!

The Random: Luray is the town to visit if you want to see plenty of murals here in the Shenandoah Valley. This one identifies a building that once housed a Ford dealership.

The Fun: At Garden Fest on June 4, there was a sheepdog herding demonstration. It was fun watching the border collie at work, and the sheep didn't seem to mind. They really stay together!
