Pre-empting Regular Scheduled Programming

Barefoot Friday will return next week. J

It’s been a long time coming – today’s the day! We’ve had an addition to our family.

This is one happy guy!!

After months of deliberation and visits to every fucking tractor dealership a couple of dealers in our area Jon we decided on a Kubota. Isn’t she cute?

This is my contribution to the decision making.....

I really wanted a back hoe for all my big garden plans. I/we managed to talk ourselves out of it a few times but ultimately we decided that if we were spending the money to get a tractor we might as well get exactly what we wanted.

P.S. Now my lawn can finally be mowed.

It’s a Celebration!

I’ve been blogging since July of last year and today marks my 150th post. Wow!! I’ve never been very good at acknowledging when good things happen to me so today I decided that I would do just that.

This is a big pat on my own back. Over 150 posts I’ve written approximately 60,000 words and that’s the equivalent of a small book. YAY!!! Good for me!

Although there are about 1.2 million blogs in the blogosphere only a very small percent of them are active and most bloggers never make it past 30 posts so I’m pretty proud of myself.

I’m going to celebrate by posting a few of my favourite pictures from over these last 150 posts. 

Thanks for joining me here...I very much appreciate that you do. Onwards and upwards. I’m hoping to grow my readership over the next 150 posts so if you see something you like or read something that resonates I’d love it if you’d tell your friends and share. J
