You fellow bloggers and readers are so good to me. Thank you. And you. And you. And you. And you too. And also you. And most recently, you for inviting me to share seven of my posts in these categories:
1. A beauty of a post. (Irony intended.)
2. A popular post.
3. A controversial post. (My wife still doesn't know.)
4. A helpful post.
5. A surprisingly successful post.
6. I chose a total dud of a post instead of a post that deserves more attention.
7. A post I am proud of.
I tend to resist doing this sort of thing. It feels awkward. My rewards are truly the posts you share with me (and the world) every day. That's what I need instead. Your words help me with all my struggles, ongoing and temporary. You are my escape and my therapy. You are like the Hardy Boys series I read when I was a kid (minus the racism). I couldn't wait for the next book to arrive in the mail. But instead you come to my laptop almost everyday. With pictures. And insight. And hilarity. And swear words.
