Happy New Year!

If you're one of the very small handful of people stopping by to see the latest entry, I'm afraid this is the last one for now. While I greatly enjoyed the daily challenge of finding the perfect picture to go with the perfect quote, my free time has been greatly diminished at present due to some health issues with my mom. Probably because it's been around for a couple of years now, my original blog, "Keepin' Up With The Joneses" is still checked by enough people that if I have to let one go, this one is it. I may try to incorporate the idea at times in the other one; we'll see.

So for now, I wish you farewell and hope that 2011 is your best year yet. I'll leave you with a thought provoking quote that has given me pause more than once in recent years. May we not be one of the "most men".

"Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them."
~Henry David Thoreau
