Blast birthday

I did a quick check this morning and as I suspected, the Blue Heron Blast is quickly approaching its tenth birthday on March third.

Close to seven thousand posts, millions of views, I can't tell you how much I appreciate your faithful readership. This thing now seems to move along with its own momentum, has taken on a life of its own.

And I also miss those of you who have decided to step away, Randy W., Grumpy, Window Dancer, MMWB, among others, I thank you sincerely for your past patronage and repartee.

The third is a Friday. I think that I will ensconce myself on a barstool at the Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook around six o'clock that night. Although I'm not much of a drinker, let's tip a few that night. If no one shows up I will be drinking alone until eight and that is okay too. This is for the locals, please don't put yourself out and make a special trip. By the way, got my first reader that I recall from Yerevan today, it's in Armenia, I had to look it up. Welcome. ողջույն

Goes without saying that all political, sexual and gender orientations are welcome including the confused and obscured.

Let's get one thing straight. It's strictly dutch, sorry, I ain't buying drinks for the whole bar but I do invite everybody who reads the blog to make a time of it and celebrate ten years, including especially the lurkers. Make yourselves known! Did this once before and I was shocked at who's actually reading the thing. Will see if anyone shows this time.

Thanks to all of you fellow passengers for the read and support!

Sorry I can't belly up to the bar and celebrate with you! But we will raise a glass of mescal to you and the Blast while we are hanging out in Mexico! The Blast is an important part of my life and I thank you Robert for you pearls of wisdom, insightful introspective, and musical gifts.
