Three Years And Counting

Three years ago today, I published my first post here on These Days.

I couldn’t have known at that time that starting a blog could create so many friendships.   My blogging buddies brighten my days with their comments here, and entertain and encourage me with their posts. A few of us have met in person, and there are others that, hopefully, I’ll be fortunate enough to meet in the future.

Motor Man still teases me about the days just prior to my first post “going live”.  (Let’s just say that I struggled with some technical difficulties.)  He said that he fully expected our computer to go flying through a window at any given moment.

Thanks for stopping by each day to see what’s happening here. You’ve been subjected to countless photos of sunrises, sunsets, kitties, swans, horses, fences, barns and family members. And thankfully, you keep returning for more!

My father-in-law will be laid to rest today in a service with full military honors. Your heartfelt comments on yesterday’s post, as well as your thoughts and prayers for our family, are so very much appreciated.
