Friday, December 31, 2010

I'm posting this on January something, 2011
but dating it December 31, 2010.

How did the year end?
Some comments and photos follow.

I think I've determined the reason this blog
gets so many hits on the September 20th post.
I named my bendable car companion "Bob",
but there is also a Sponge Bob which is bendable.
So, searches on "Bendable Bob" list that post.

I read a total of 53 books in 2010.
The book count isn't particularly important,
but since I've been logging my books since 1986,
it's easy to make a count at the end of the year.
This is a fairly typical count;
my highest is somewhere over 100,
my lowest is in the 20s.

I've given myself permission to
end my Blessing cards project.
Very freeing;
it was becoming a chore, not a pleasure.
Instead of 100, I have 75.
An acceptable number.

I didn't post to this blog every day of 2010 as planned.
I quit on December 19th.
Just quit.
And didn't miss it.

Also, I've almost totally quit taking photographs.
I think I will resume; I just need a break.

I got my ears pierced on December 30th
(my first and probably last piercings)

Anne and I got tattoos on December 27th,
her third, my second.
We have identical tattoos
and we can add accessories with marker as the mood strikes.
Happy faces, anyone?

Most everything else that's happened this year
was posted as it happened.

Here is a final "You are here" . . .

and a close-up of the oil spot . . .

A reflected good-bye to 2010 . . .

The end.
Thanks for reading.
