Well, it has been a year since I started this blog.

I made a vow that I would write it every day for at least a year and I have been true to my word. I will be the first to admit that the “gems” were few and far between, but on the whole I think it has been a very good experience for me. For you, I think there must have been better things to do with your time, but I really appreciate your having been a reader of the blog.

I have readers from the Ukraine, Peru, UK, the US, Germany, Korea, Malaysia, France, Russia, Israel, India, Turkey and of course Canada. There were other countries, but for some reason they have been taken off of the list. I would like to thank all of you silly bastards and I hope that I have given you a chuckle or two and even made you think. You probably thought “How did I get on to this crappy blog?”, but hey, I did make you think.

I have mentioned before that there are several reasons for writing this blog and the most important in my opinion was to leave an indication of who and what I am for my grandkids. My daughter brought to my attention the fact that I sometimes get a little “creative” with the truth so it isn’t really the best way for them to get to know me by. Well, it is the best they are going to get. Warts and all!

There is another reason. I have always wanted to actually write some of the stories that I have swirling around in my empty head and I thought that if I were to write every day then I would get an indication of how tough it will be. It is going to be tough, but I will give it a go. If it turns out well then you will know, but if it sucks the great, green wiener then you obviously misunderstood what I said here.

I was hoping to have had 10,000 page views by this time, but I have fallen just short of the mark with just 9,868 views. I will let you know the day that I hit 10,000. I will probably be in California. Speaking of which, I am not sure how easy it will be to write the blog while I am there, so if it comes without paragraphs or looks funny in any way, you can blame the iPad. It should work out fine, but who knows what crazy California things could happen.

Thanks again for reading and I will talk to you tomorrow.


  1. Well done Ken and as I have said before thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. What I like the best about your blog is we don't know what to expect from you each day. Oh we can read your moods and sometimes were not sure if your throwing B.S. into the blog just for fun, but that's up to us to figure out right? Anyway I talked to my weiner dog Dewy and he not to happy with you leaving mans best friend behind! Happy Anniversary B

  2. I admire your perseverance, we've managed to delay sending out our Christmas letter until Easter. Today looks like a good one to get'er done.
