Squirl's Nest

Three years now

Well, my blog is having its anniversary today. I remember being quite excited and not sure how it was going to go. Turns out that I've used it more as a photo blog. When I first started I didn't even have a digital camera. While I'm pleased how I've done with my picture-taking, Ichabod keeps complaining that I don't write stories much anymore.

Here is the second post I ever did, the first story that I ever told on my blog. And this is where I told why my name is Squirl.

But this all ended up being much more than a place to tell funny stories. I've met a lot of wonderful people in the blogworld. There have been a few idiots and jerks along the way but they've all dropped off. Some other have dropped out that I wish wouldn't have. It's been a very interesting ride this last three years. Thanks for being there with me.

Happy Third Blogiversary to you, squirl! Thank goodness you are here to class up the joint. I completely enjoy both your stories and your photos. Mostly I enjoy your gracious kindness. I'm so glad you are here.

htgt, thank you so much! Somebody has to class is up, right?

Chia, :-* right back atcha!

Danielle, you're so sweet and I feel the same way about you. Happy Easter to you, too. :-)

Mr B, nope you really didn't. Thanks!

Bucky, thanks! Maybe I should post a picture of him in his underwear.
Sorry I can't be there to play ceiling cat for the boys. I'll bet you're getting a kick out them looking and chirping.

Eclectic, hi sis! Thanks so much. I did have a little chocolate today. It's from a small place in a nearby town. They make the BEST chocolate. Love you, too.

Ern, thanks. I'm glad you're still here, too.

Jenski, thanks! That's an interesting question. I really had no idea at that time if I'd still be here doing this. Or who I'd meet and how my life would be different because of it. I just started it because it looked like fun.

Nick, thanks! I've got a bit more time in than you, but you've far surpassed me in putting up posts.

Happy Blogiversary.....I can't remember how many years that I have been blogging....I started out on tblog and I remember a bunch of my blogging friends from tblog moved over to blogspot, so did I......it does keep ones mind moving, and you can learn so much, and if you feel a pain, you know that somewhere out in blogland there is someone with more pain than you......it's fun to write about either memories or just life in itself....I know my dog Max get tired of hearing me rant and rave....LOL judy

As always I'm late to the party but Happy Bloggiversary to you, Squirl! We both love the photos (Stumpy, that is, not my other personality!) so may there be many more - but you should write more often too: loved that old post. :)

Thanks, Tweety, I'll have to get over there and check them out.

Kranki, thanks! No cake, but I don't need the sugar anyway.

Judy, you've been around for quite a while. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Laurie, thanks!!

Platy, thanks! You were a little too early to see the latest photo spread. Maybe some day I'll get back to writing some stories.
