Mugwump Woolies blog is two years old today. What an enjoyable journey those years have been! Meeting new friends...sharing our home and travels with you...visiting you on your's how I start my day. 

I appreciate the time you take to come by for a visit, and am grateful for your encouraging words and many kind comments.  And your friendship...I am especially grateful for the friends I have made out there in the blogosphere. You have lifted my spirits on hard days and made sharing good days more fun. I thank you for being there. have enriched my girl's life as well. Annie is a silent partner in this endeavor. She often gives me this advice, "You should put that on the blog.".

We traveled down to Sarasota yesterday. Just for one night. I snapped this pic of Annie and her faithful companion Clancy napping. Clancy has been been by Annie's side for twenty three of her 27 years....

...I'm happy so many of you have been by my side for these two years...on this anniversary I wanted to "...put that on the blog".
