RAMSEY DAILY PHOTO 1ST ANNIVERSARY- J FOR JUBILATIONS

Ramsey Daily Photo Ist Anniversay

J is for Jubilations


In the style of Babooshka this post will veer off at who knows what tangents(I really have to stop referring to my alter ego in the third person) but the gist is Ramsey Daily Photo is one year old today. Ta Da! Do I hear fanfare and drum roll? Why thank you. So I had this wacky idea to post a daily photo of the the place I live. Ingenious. Turns out Paris, Eric is the ingenious one the Daddy and gazumped us all. Without Eric and the wonderful team at CDP we would all be lonesome daily bloggers floundering in the wildnerness, virtually. I digress. I blame it all on Gailsman though really. Yes you GM. I meandered on that blog looking for something else and guess what it was a daily photo. I liked the humour, I liked images, I thought hey I wanna do this me thinking I had the brainwave remember. I started RDP. I still frequent GM and our common goal the hunt for white dog poo! You are wondering how I have lasted a year posting lines like that haven't you? So have I.


No long Oscar award winning teary gee golly gosh shucks speech. My thank you's would take me until my 2nd Anninversary. An en mass THANK YOU each and everyone. I'll be name checking over the weeks so look out for you yes you out there. One a day will get the pat on the back.



I chose the Isle of Man flag today for the image which just seemed most appropriate. You really didn't want another bridge image just yet did you? It's been a mostly good year. This blog was never meant to be a love letter to the place I live. It is what it is, the way a photographer sees the relatively normal world she lives in. Sometimes bleak, often beautiful, constantly mundane, sometimes extraordinary. Joe said I am the David Lynch of Ramsey in this Twin Peaks town kind of way. That made me laugh. Ah you know me so well, yet we have never met. Perhaps I should curb my enthusiasm. Nah! One thing I have learnt about blogging you have to Go your own way. Post for yourself, do not try and please everyone, but you will always please someone. Be yourself. Above all have fun. The day I stop having fun is the day I stop.


I thank you all for the continued viewing and comments sincerely, no jokes, or wisecracks, a genuine cheers. One for the CPD bloggers. For the record on a humble note, Community Favourites. Have you any idea how embarrassing it is to see London, Paris, and er Ramsey. I have visions of people going where the hell is that. I mean it's like who is this upstart. Again thank you.

Not watching the Watchman, because the b*****y cinema aren't showing it here and I am so000000000000000000000000000 annoyed. Did you really think you had escaped the wrath of Queen B. Watch this space.





Mrs Nesbitt is a visitor to the island no less, is the lady with the letters to see to ABC
