There Is No Cat

As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly

Why, yes, Mr. Brandi, that is a fascinating navel

There Is No Cat is now a toddler, turning three years old today. As I've done the previous two years, I went looking through my archives of the past year to see what I wrote that I thought was any good. I only came up with two posts, and one of those was from four days ago:

Still, the year wasn't a total waste. My favorite thing I wrote all year was closely entwined with the sort of post I made that did work well this year: photographs. My travelogue of our trip to St. Augustine, Florida, at Thanksgiving isn't strictly speaking part of There Is No Cat. But I did excerpt each entry here as I wrote it over the month or two it took me to post my photographs. And I'm really quite happy with many of the photos; some of them are among my favorites I've ever taken. I probably should put together an edited version of just the really good ones. Maybe another evening. Other photo posts I like:

I also posted a piece of music that won a contest. I never got the prize, but that's okay, I didn't really need it.

I made 111 posts this year. That's down from 179 last year and 442 the first year. Going on current trends, that means you can probably expect 93 posts from me in the coming year. But, as the stock brokers say, past performance is no guarantee of future results. I may post a lot less, and have trouble coming up with even two posts I like at this time next year....

Note: I’m tired of clearing the spam from my comments, so comments are no longer accepted.

Congratulations, sweetie! I love you! I think that maybe I have a need to always insinuate myself somewhere in the 26 things... teamwork in the first set, and relief in the second... Is that the proper usage of the word "insinuate"? Or do I have a need to "infiltrate" the 26 things? I'm just a dumb engineer, I don't know how to use words good...

Three years. That's middle aged in weblogging years, so it's no wonder you're slowing down. You know what happens when you start to get old.

Congrats! I also enjoyed the photos.

How old is that in dog and/or cat years?

Hey happy third birthday! Sorry i'm so late, I've been off-line for awhile. I hope There is No Cat is around for a lot longer.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio

There used to be a cat
