HAPPY BIRTHDAY, blog...and dog!

(Photo Credit: LadynBuster on Flickr)


Friends (and I use that term loosely, yet with fondness), it has occured to me that today is an auspicious day for three important reasons. Firstly, this is the third anniversary of this fine blog that you see before you, and interestingly, to the second point, I have completed exactly 300 posts to date. I still very much enjoy chronicling my culinary life for and with you, so it is with all sincerity that I say, thank you for (still) stopping by!

Then thirdly, by some odd coincidence, it is also the birthday of my ridiculous hound dog, Grady (more formally, that's American/Canadian Champion Goose Creek Wonder Boy!). And in his wickedness, he would have to go and mess up the theme of three that I've got working, as he is FIVE years old today--not that you'd ever know it by his mischievous antics! Though I have no recipes to share on this grand occasion (but there are some in the hopper that will be posted soon, fear not), I leave you with some dumb pictures of my dumb dog, the birthday boy.

To think that it started off like this:

















And grew up to become THIS:















HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GRADY!

Happy birthday to Grady and your blog. Yours was the first food blog I ever had found on the net and the inspiration for starting my own. So Thank You!!!! (Would you believe I had no idea food blogs existed until I found yours - I feel like I had been living in the Dark Ages!!!)
