Happy Blog-i-versary...

...to me! Yep, one year ago today, the first posting celebrating our trip to the Creation Museum launched the daily skeleton action figure parade. There have been 503 skeletons/skulls since, with no repeats. The figures (and their sources) can be found on this Flickr.com page.

In that time I've: visited South America and Antarctica; said 'goodbye' to the greatest Grandmother EVER; extolled the virtues of the Macintosh and Battlestar Galactica ad nauseum (some might say ;-); given the Republicans FAR less grief than they deserve; been amazed/disturbed by the posts that get the most hits (cat enemas and Bigfoot hunting); read too many trash novels and watched too many movies; said "happy retirement" to one colleague and "welcome" to several others; taught the best (NSF program) and worst (Forensic Anthro) classes of my career; joined Facebook and Netflix thus increasing my "coolness" level to simply "lame"; watched Notre Dame suffer through the worst football season on record; and had another kittie join the tribe.

It is admittedly getting a bit harder to find a new skeleton/skull for each post, but I hope to make it another year before I have to dip back into the pool of characters. The Flickr.com "Skeleton Action Figures" group has grown to 210 members, which does help out considerably, I have to admit.

Thanks to all those who have commented over the year!! Keeps it fun!

Congratulations! There must have been some doubling up on skeleton action figures, as I seem to recall a number of days recently where I didn't see any, yet you have more than 365? (but who's counting!)

Yorke - "Random Bytes" explains the high number. I took a vacation from that entry for the last part of the summer, but it'll be back with the new semester.

BRNH -- who are you??

Daniel -- many thanks. See ya next week!
