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!

    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

    http://messageinamilkbottle.blogspot.com/

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

  46. 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

  50. 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.
