Belated Blog Anniversary

September 1,2008,I posted my first blog post right here.
Back then the title was 'Jake and Ruth's Photo Blog'.
Many changes have happened since then,but I still enjoy blogging and love the friends I have met here and the new ones that I still meet.

This is the first picture I posted,not much to look at but I loved watching the skies back then and I still do.


On September 8,2008,on my 8th post,I got my first two comments,after posting the following pictures.
Many of you have seen this and the following pictures more than once,but I still cherish them and the memories that go with them.
I got this picture from the car,as I had stayed there to wait while Jake tried to get a picture.

This is what Jake was seeing through his camera.


Moments later the coyote ran across the road and stopped just long enough for me to get this last shot of him.

These are precious memories and bring a smile even as I'm typing the words.

Thanks to each one who has,over the years,followed my blog,through the ups and downs of life.
You are all very special to me and I wish for you a life filled with blessings.

  7. Dear Ruth ~ We started blogging the same month and year.

    I'm not sure when we connected, it seems like it was around the time or after my DH went to his heavenly home. You and I had widowhood in common, not only that, but a love of God and a joy in photography, flowers, critters, skies, etc.

    It is always a pleasure to see your photography.

    What wonderful shots in this post and I'm glad they bring back precious memories and make you smile.

    Have a great week and a happy autumn ~ FlowerLady

  8. Ruth, Happy Blogversary! I also started my blog in 2008. So much has changed for both of us, though your loss of a life partner is the greatest sadness. I'm glad you can look back on these photos and have happy memories.

  9. CONGRATULATIONS on 7 years blogging. I had to smile to myself when you said this was your first photo because on my first day of blogging, I did not even know how to put a photgraph on!!! It is lovely for me to see these past photos of yours as obviously i was not around then in blogland and to know the happy memories that go with them. Here's to the next seven years Ruth. Have a great week ahead.

  10. I was on a hike in a state park nearby once and had not even noticed a coyote about 6 ft from me lying in the golden grass. I was startled into awareness by a woman who screamed COYOTE! then grabbed up her little dog and ran off. I did not even get a photo as it darned away!

  15. The coyote shots are special, especially the one of Jake going for the "perfect" shot. That's what memories are made of. I'm glad you posted those early shots today since I would probably have missed them completely if you hadn't. Congratulations on your blogging anniversary. I started almost exactly two years after you did. But I think you've been more consistent in your blogging, through some hard times, too.
