Yes, today is Shades one year blogiversary. Shades has lasted longer than three of my Aunt M's marriages; and we're better looking than all seven of her husbands.
It has been a great year! Friday From The Collector's has seen 32 columns, Shades now has eight permanent Weekend With Shades columnists, we've traveled through history with Twice Told Tuesday, Wandered The Web on Wednesday, talked about Many Things on Thursday, discussed I think She's Dead, the Little Girl Wearing Pearls, and The Shot that started the year. We have heard from and reunited families with their photographs and history.
Smile for The Camera, A Carnival of Images, celebrates it's 11th Edition today. Each carnival just keeps getting better and better. Admission is free with a photograph and Shades' readers have graced Smile with the most wonderful photographs.
I want to thank Shades' readers; for their loyalty, pity comments, spirit of giving and friendship. Thank You! Would I be selfish in asking for another year equally as good or better? I hope not, because that is my wish.
Here's to many more Shades of the Departed!
