One year, could it really be? One year ago today was The Beginning of this blog, aptly named, I suppose. It really is quite fitting that it happened to be on a Tuesday, and let alone the 13th. I had to look it up, but I knew the anniversary was coming up and was pleasantly surprised about those two facts. Tuesday because it would fall on a day where I do double duty and write for Green Spot-On too; and the 13th because that was Grandma's favorite number. Her birthday was August 13th so I'm assuming she was a little partial to it.
What to do on such a milestone? I mean, it's not like my birthday or something. I don't see any gifts coming my way... damn! But I do feel like celebrating. This really has been a blast for me, getting to know my readers, but better yet, getting to know how my blog affects my readers. Not only do I share funny stories about things that happen on this crazy piece of heaven on earth, but I have tried to share some things that hopefully make a difference in a persons life.
Maybe in just a little teensy way, admit it. Okay I admit it, blogging reminds me constantly to stay true to the course that I have chosen, you know the environmentally friendly one. Recently a friend of ours was making these huge bear traps (don't worry, they are only for decoration) and I encouraged him to use recycled material. He came roaring in the driveway the other day to tell us that his product is now 85% recycled (thanks to me, he added) and he has already sold one!
Or maybe I have helped you deal with a health issue, because Lord knows, I've had my share. Hopefully I help you deal with them with dignity and humor, because sometimes that's the only way to go. But above everything else, I hope mostly I brought a smile to your lips each and every time you saw that there was a post. I also hope you have learned by now that I am a total rebel at heart, as a matter of fact, many times my own rebellion is my worst enemy, so I thought it quite appropriate that I close this milestone post with a hillbilly "Rebel Girl" song from Miranda Lambert:
