See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

Looking back...


Looking back on nearly six years of blogging.

I'll be ending the blog sometime in 2012 - it was always my plan.  I'll have lots to say about the art of blogging and bloggers and blogists before the 'last post' goes up.  True confessions and exposures...

  1. I vote 'no', but it's up to you, of course.

    Blessings and prayers for The New Year.

  5. Well, all right, if you think we have messed up your house enough and drunk your cellar dry, I suppose it is time to shoo the guests out the door and turn off the porch light.

    Before we go, though, could you show off your santos (the bultos, especially)? I have a small collection of them and am always interested in the collections of others.

  6. But, but, but... I just got here.

  7. Terry, we'll ALL be leaving the blogs in 2012. Mayans, etc.
    ;)

    P.S. Chaz Bono has female parts. If she pees next to you it would have to be in the stall, or she's super talented.

  8. You can check out anytime you like Nelson.....but you can never leave.

    I am not gonna be out of a job this close to Christmas(What?)!

    Sure, close the place up for a while but don't go for ever.

    It is ofcourse, your choice Terry.

    I will miss you but understand totally.

    I love you boy

    Ros xx

    PS. Thanks for all the good times here at the bar.

  9. Wait a minute! Wait a minute! I'm not going yet. It could be next week or next year at this time. And maybe it won't mean I'm gone... maybe the blog will be 'changed, not ended' - just like lefe/death...

    Mrs. Rudd - I'll gladly share my collection with you - I'll have to get some shots. Have you published any of your santos/bultos?

  12. Ironically, this is by far one of the sanest, richest blogs out there, yet you're so hard on yourself. But then again, I'm sure that's why it's so good - if other bloggers had half the self-criticism you do ...

    ReplyDelete
  13. your blog, not fr.Z's, is my 'panem quotidianum' of sorts...

    i can't live with the 'withdrawal' symptoms...

    as others have just said, I second the emotion !

  14. Oh good. I'm glad the event is not imminent.

    Has it been six years? I found your blog through a Google search of a question I had in my conversion days - Abbey Roads II was still up then. Seems like another lifetime.

    (No, I haven't posted any photos of the santos. Cameras and I have never been good friends. However, I am assured that my new camera can be operated by anyone, including Aunt Klutzo (me), so I hope to have photos of them on my blog in time for their feast days.)

  15. Yeah, you should at least do an accurate self-portrait and post it on here.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Churckle - why don't you.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yes, the way you go on about how courageous you are, you should put up a recent, unromanticized version. Maybe a current picture of you "praying" at your home parish?

    ReplyDelete
  18. But Tancred - why don't you do likewise? Why don't you use your real name? Perhaps you aren't so courageous yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  19. What did I tell you?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I told you I didn't want anything to do with you, but that didn't matter, did it?

    If you're so courageous, put up a photo so all of your detractors can recognize you in public.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Tancred - Hmmmm. I'm not sure you told me anything - that I don't already know.

    ReplyDelete
  22. If you did not want anything to do with me why did you comment?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yep, I instructed you that I desired no contact with you and that I would construe future attempts to contact me or refer to me as hostile.

    ReplyDelete
  24. And yet you contacted me with your comment at 5:09?

  25. I think it's time for Sharon Gee (or whatever her name is) to make an appearance and inflict peace on us all.
