Edgar - Congratulations to you!! Nine years is a long time in blog land. I think I only discovered your blog a year or so ago, but it really is one of the most interesting and diverse - lots of stitching and lots of other great stuff. Best wishes on another nine years (at least!). :-)

Nine years! Congratulations Edgar. Isn't it amazing how quickly time flies? Let's see if the Who Hounds pick me. lol

Denise said...

Phooey, I hit anonymous on the last comment. Like I said...Congratulations on nine years! Isn't amazing how quickly time flies?

denise said...

9 years! Wow!!🎉

Heritage Hall said...

Yours is one of the blogs I wouldn't miss for its diversity and depth of interest... The many travel photos, museum tours and that Oscar de la Renta exhibit took the cake...speaking of which, that polka dot cake would take the cake for me as a prize ....but the who hounds would probably confiscate it and claim it for themselves. Happy 9th, Edgar and, hopefully, many more to come.

Jonette said...

Congratulations on 9 years. I rarely comment but I enjoy all of your posts.

Vicky R said...

Congrats on 9 years, I hope I can blog that long :)

Gene Black said...

Happy Blogaversary! Give a hug to the who hounds for me. (and of course hug Rico too.)

The Bowl of Destiny - it sounds like an old radio mystery theater production. I wonder if Agnes Moorhead ever starred on that one?

Happy anniversary! I enjoy your blog, and sometimes use you to read the blogs you follow instead of following myself. Therefore I check you blog a couple of times a day.

heidistitches said...

I think I've been following your blog for at least 6-7 years. I've always loved it and to this day, I'm still amazed at how quickly you stitch and turn out such wonderful pieces (and the food you make looks pretty good too)! Love the thrifting and your photo tours of San Francisco.

We started our blogging journey about the same time. I had to check…my 1st post was 5/3/07. Where do the years go? I remember, way back when, participating in SO many exchanges and hoping that I would one day get an exchange piece from you, which I did, a few times. :-)
Wishing you many more years of productive and enjoyable stitching/blogging!
