Post Number 500

This is apparently my 500 post!

Somewhere around 90 percent were posted on this blog with a small percentage on my now defunct photography blog. I was thinking about putting some kind of deep and wordy post together to memorialize the event.  This isn’t going to be it.
I will say that I totally appreciate all of you who follow and comment on the things I post here.
Truth be told, I’m just too darn tired and burnt out to post anything. I’m going to take a few days off to get some stuff done.  Everything is okay, I promise! I'll be back soon.
Just too much to do…

Just too many plates!

Great job making it to 500 posts. I think I am up to #257 and it really is work sometimes, but when the words start flowing, time just seems to fly by....
what? was that my bus that just went by? why didn't they stop?

It does look like an adventurous way to clear your plates, though. Congratulations on 500! Wow!

Yes Sir, too many irons in the fire cause us to adjust and catch up at times, after 500 posts you should be deserving a short break.

Congrats on 500 Pat I sure enjoy following along my Friend.

Congratulation on your 500th postyversary!

The image is apt.

This morning, I found I'd reached the limit of photos blogger allows so I've gone on from Pictures Just Pictures to 'Message in a Milk Bottle' at

Apart from a new look and new name, it will be the same as always - a picture a day.

Johnny Yen said...

Congrats!

I know the "plates in the air" feeling well; I've been describing myself lately as "Busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest..."

Powdered Toast Man said...

sounds like an excuse to me. Now get off you ass and start putting up some meaty posts. I will not take no for an answer.

Is it the 500 that's got you? Are you all blogged out? I wonder from time to time how long I can keep up with the flow here in bloggersville. I do enjoy the process of writing, editing and getting feedback though. A gratifying pass time. See you when you get back.
Blessings, Rosemary

John McElveen said...

Congrats my Friend- and here's to hopefully 500 more!

Cheeseboy said...

I've been in the same mood lately and quite honestly - my posts have suffered. They are not up to par. I'll welcome you back when you return.

Li said...

congratulation on 500 post - what a fun foto you chose to go w/ the topic ;-) xx

Francisca said...

When you find a bigger plate you'll tell me won't you, Pat? Mine is overflowing too. I get it. See ya around... And hey, congrats on the 500. I was pretty psyched when I hit 100... so I have a ways to catch up... What am I saying? There's no race. Just a ways to go before 500. But the way time is whizzing by these days, it won't be long... Stay sane. Or whatever your preference.

AB said...

See you soon in post #501

Sarah said...

Oh my god what a picture!! 500 is a huge number Pat, no wonder you're tired..take a small break and write some more tomorrow and the next day and the day after that..ok? :D

Rabbit said...

Hope you're doing well. It's quiet around here without you.

Take care of you.
