And Then There Were More

You can follow Peg-O-Leg’s Ramblings, or you can turn the page.

Peg, one of my very favorite blogger buddies, hit 15,000 followers. And then she lost a couple.

Peg-o-Leg's Ramblings

peg6 Me, looking grateful.

It has been 5 years almost to the day since I started a blog.   Given how ephemeral these electronic flashes of word and image can be, that makes me an elder statesman.  Practically a blogging Methuselah.
