Happy Blogiversary

Today's the third birthday for AEAE. I know I say this every year, but it's truer every year: I can't believe I've stuck with anything this long.

Since I can't seem to come up with a fitting photo, it's just the music today.

Gary U.S. Bonds - Quarter to Three

Three Dog Night - Mama Told Me Not To Come

The Three's Company Theme

Trio - Da Da Da

Lotte Lenya - Mack the Knife (from the Threepenny Opera)

Thanks to each and every one of you who have commented, visited, linked to me, etc.: without you guys and your continued interest, this would have been the year I packed it in. I was so ready to several times, but every time, someone would say or do something that kept me from it. Well, that and imagining what October would be like without it.

Any Major Dude With Half a Heart has featured me shamelessly so many times on his blog I get a reflexive blush whenever I load a new page over there, and Davy has done similar over at Ghost of Electricity.

Karen just posted a lovely little tribute to me elsewhere as well. And I can't believe I almost forgot, but Joe has linked people over here several times too. Thanks y'all - you guys are the best.

Congrats. I can safely say as one who was late to this party…I’m glad I came along. You’ve got some great, fab, and just plain well done snaps…and the music ain’t half bad neither…haha. Here’s to 3 more and beyond! Cheers!

happy anniversary!!! You're awesome and I mean that will all my heart.

John Rozum said...

Happy Anniversary! I'm really lame at always leaving comments, but I stop by on a very regular basis. I never leave disappointed. I'm always impressed with your fine gift for photography and by your fine ear for music. Thank you for sharing both.

Davy H said...

Yes, it's like opening the gate on a favourite, secret garden: and there's always something lovely in bloom.

Happy blogaversary D. xx

A bit late but still heart-felt. Happy Anniversary! Love your photos and the music is just an added bonus. Looking forward to seeing what the new year will bring.

Joe said...

Happy Anniversary and thanks for all the swell pictures and music!

Dane said...

Thank you all very, very much.

A secret garden? That's really cool, Davy. And heartface? Ally, you're a doll.

Wayne S. said...

Thank you, Dane. I am sorry I haven't said that before. Please stay with us! And I think a fitting photo for the anniversary would be YOU.

Dane said...

Thanks, Wayne, but no pictures of me.

Greer said...

I'm sorry I'm so late Dane, but congratulations on three years! You're always a source of inspiration.

Oh, I missed this. Congrats. I'll try not to big you up anymore then...

Dane said...

Oh no, please don't take it that way, I just meant to thank you for the frequent mentions!


Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
