I’d like to congratulate Kate Jarrett for signing up and being my 100th follower. As soon as she tells me which pattern she wants, it will be in the mail to her. My blog has “site stats” which tell me who is regularly “following” on either email or via WordPress. I know there are lots of you who follow me via other means, but I don’t have firm numbers for them.
Thank you, everyone else, who signed up at the same time! I hope you enjoy my posts from Australia.
I’ve just found out that the official Summer Solstice is in the afternoon on Wednesday (the 20th). I’m so happy that we won’t miss it, since we’re heading for shorter days south of the equator. On the 21st we’ll be flying over the International Date Line, thereby missing Thursday entirely. Last time we did this, it was John’s birthday, so he now says he’s a year younger than he really is! (saaaay…. if we did this EVERY year, maybe we could all be a lot younger!!!)
