Nine Years

It’s now nine years that I have been publishing this blog on its own server with a customized domain and Web address. Of course, I have been writing a blog since 2002, and before that had a personal website since 1997.

The Web has changed a lot since then of course. Most photos today are taken with smartphones. There is a lot more video-centric content published. Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok are far more important than a simple family-based blog. But I continue; I persevere.

A lot has happened in 9 years. My hearing and sight deteriorated but I have got that fixed to some extent. We went on a few more cruises. The grandkids have grown up incredibly. We still take shopping holidays down in Syracuse NY.

This was Sarah’s gang back in 2014.

And here they are now.

I plan to keep on with this old school way of doing things. I can take better photos now with my smartphone, but I still prefer an actual camera. I’ll never be a fan of videos.

Anyway, if you have read this blog over the years I hope you have enjoyed it. You will at the very least kept in touch with our family.
