Slight Detour’s 8th Blogiversary

Hard to believe that much time has passed since that Thanksgiving weekend when my brother and I stood in my mother's kitchen, talking about how we could get some exposure for his cartoon booklet entitled "Slight Detour." A week or so later, my blog was born.  As I've said in earlier reflections about my now daily addiction, I never dreamed of keeping it going for more than a few weeks. Eight years later "Slight Detour," the blog, is still alive and kicking. ... I was thinking this morning, while walking in the rain (a recurrent theme of Slight Detour), about the major changes in the cast of characters this blog has featured:  Ebbie, Annie Dog, Licker, Lonesome Love, Charlie, Rambo, Casey and Heather. All played loving roles in our Lovestead family, and all remain permanently tucked away in our memories/Marianne Love, Slight Detour. More here.

Question: Anyone out there celebrated more blogiversaries than Slight Detour?
