Eight Years? You’re Stuck with Me!

I am super overwhelmed by everything–pandemic, storms on the Gulf Coast, fires on the West Coast, police brutality, life in general–so I wasn’t going to blog today. But the WordPress bot reminded me that I first registered for a blog on WordPress eight years ago today! So let’s celebrate!

My first blog post was not surprisingly a “welcome” post. A few years ago, I made that post private and added the content to my “About Me” page. I made it pubic today in honor of the day and because there’s a pic of my first and favorite Cherished Teddies figurine.  🙂

I’ll be back in a day or two with a “real” post. For now, thank you for being here  for all the shenanigans of Pics and Posts. This is one of my happy places and I enjoy sharing my snail mail, photo adventures, and random thoughts with you.

Later, folks!

Happy, Happy, and a Little More Happy!

Even though I am in the middle of class preparations–Heart of Darkness and Beowulf, if you’re interested–I feel obligated to take a moment to write a post.  Why? Because it has been almost a month since I last posted and because WordPress reminded me that it’s my WordPress anniversary.  Typically, I ignore WP’s “pats on the back,” but three years is a long time to stick with a weblog, no matter how infrequently, randomly, and unpredictably one posts.

Sooooo…

Thank you, my little blog audience, for sticking with mePics and Posts is one of my happy places and I enjoy sharing my snail mail and photo adventures with you.  Happy Anniversary to us!

Until next time–I leave you with a little bit of happy–a poem by e.e. cummings that always makes me smile!

Who Knows If the Moon

“Who Knows if the Moon’s a Baloon” by e.e. cummings

[I designed this for a “Poetry on a Postcard” swap.  I’ll be blogging about the series of swaps soon].

Have joy!
