The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

Eleventh Bloggiversary!

I’m sure that everyone of my age or older often finds themselves wondering about the speed of the passage of time, perhaps even finding themselves uttering words along the lines of “Doesn’t time fly!” with disturbing regularity.

By way of example, about eighteen months ago, Mick & I went to Florida to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary, yet somehow the numbers on the calendar tell us that it’s our fifteenth this year. About five years ago we walked LEJOG, except that those pesky numbers on the calendar tell us that it’s actually ten years ago this April that we set out*.

And apparently, it was eleven years ago today that I first put fingers to keyboard on this blog.

It has been rather quiet around here as late, but hopefully we will do some stuff relevant to this blog (as opposed to our other blog at, which was much more active than this one last year) sometime soon.

In the meantime I had good intentions of throwing some photos into this post illustrating what I’ve been up to whilst not getting out walking, but I can no longer use Open Live Writer on my laptop, and I’m feeling too lazy to transfer these words to, and fiddle with photos on, my phone to use Bloggeroid to create the post. Anyone familiar with Blogger will likely understand why I’m not even considering creating a post within Blogger itself.

(*I gave serious consideration to re-walking LEJOG this year in celebration of that tenth anniversary, and revisted the thought many times. Eventually I decided against for many, and varied, reasons.)
