Hartford Daily Photo is Two

Yup.  The first post went live on July 6, 2010, a week after I retired.  You need something to do when you become a man of leisure.

Thanks to the readers, whether the regulars, the occasionals or the one-timers. It didn't occur to me that people would actually look at the blog and some would comment.  How cool!

Oh, Happy Blogoversary indeed, Jack!! I started blogging nearly five years ago -- I was going nuts after I retired!! I had traveled and lived in Mexico, visited all of my kids and suddenly had no idea what to do with myself????? My son gave me a camera and told me to go have fun and I did and I have and I do! Every day! And isn't life wonderful!! Have a great weekend!

It is cool isn't it?! It is a fun hobby. Congrats on the anniversary. I enjoy your posts and appreciate your comments.

Lynette said...

Yea for your two years, Jack! Fabulous photo to represent your milestone.

About your comment asking if I'd ever thought of being a mechanic, I laughed out loud. One of my pet peeves while growing up was the fact that Daddy taught my brother Howard all sorts of auto-related skills and didn't teach me one thing. I'm eternally curious about how engines work (both automobiles and trains) and adore the design of many vintage autos and steam engines. Living in Portland is so fine for many reasons, one of which is the number of vintage vehicles driven daily.

Congrats Jack! Blogging is a great way of catching up with people from different corners and different cultures around the world ... a very worthwhile past-time.
I've enjoyed your snippets from Hartford. Well Done.
