A Toast

Back in July 2010 I wondered whether I would be able to keep this blog going for a month.  Well, today is the 1,000th post.  With posts every day, thanks to the wonders of autoposting when I am traveling.  Like today.

People actually look at the pictures and read what I write.  They frequently leave me comments.  What a hoot!  Thank you!

Other bloggers who have reached new plateaus often reflect on what changes they will make going forward.  No new resolutions for me.  I wouldn't keep them.  I plan to keep going, pretty much as I have.

I depart today and will be back the second week of April.  Until then, I have posts scheduled.  See you!

Now I know why your profile photo only shows your face from the nose up. You remind me of Earl Hindman of "Home Improvements" TV show. He never showed his full either. On the show his face was usually hiding behind a fence.

Congratulations, dad! At long last you have an occasion to pull out the tux! (I wonder if you could have experimented with the champagne glass in the foreground and a very close focus on it - so your face is blurry?)

Have a blast on your trip - can't wait to see the pictures. May your blog run many thousands more days:)

Thanks Jack, not only for the photos but for the information in the narrative and the comments you make on other blogger's posts. As your daughter Susie said, may you continue for many more thousands of posts!

Huge congratulations! That is well worth a toast of the bubbly. Have a wonderful journey wherever you are off to.

I remember when you started - rather tentatively. But then you hit your stride and took off and never looked back. And now you're off on another tour of Europe. Hope you enjoy. I tried to make a toast to you, but couldn't find a monkey suit, and when I said up, some guy said "Don't do it, or your toast." So I sat down. But my intentions were good.

Congratulations. It's a beautiful achievement.

Well done Jack, you're a better man than I (hopefully haha) 1,000 posts without a miss is mega impressive. I haven't quite worked out the pre set 'thingy' so when I'm away I'm really away :) have a wonderful trip, catch you when you get back..

Congratulations Jack, what an achievement! Enjoy Europe, there should be some great photo opportunities - I fondly remember Keukenhof and the tulip plantations, they are spectacular.

Congratulations, Jack!

Stefan Jansson said...

It's been a fun ride so far, keep up the good work. Oh, and you seem to have lost your mouth, that is never any fun!

Ed said...

Congratulations, Jack . To have 1000 posts is quite an accomplishment. I'm looking forward to the next 1000.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Quite the milestone. Wish I was as disciplined as you. Congratulations and carry on!

Randy said...

Congratulations Jack!

Leslie D. said...

You have been a happy find. And a recognizable one I might add. The top half of your head seems to speak more loudly than the bottom half.

gardenbug said...

I certainly enjoy the certainty of a new daily photo from Jack. Thanks!

Kay said...

Congratulations to you! I was mightily impressed by the bow tie and tux. Really, Jack. You don't have to get dressed up to impress us. May you have many thousands more posts, from wherever you go.

By the way: Did you notice your chin is missing? Does that make it easier to shave? Is this what they mean about taking it on the chin?

Dianne said...

1000 posts and you've never missed a day! .... you deserve that champagne .... Well done Jack!
