Six years ago today........



The first post appeared here on Carteach0 six years ago today.  It involved a tear down and examination of Swiss GP-11 ammunition.

Way back then, when I discovered the world of blogging, Tam's blog is one of the first I stumbled across. From her blog roll at the time, I read and learned. I learned there were people out there, a community, a tribe.   Eventually.... I just had to try it myself.

What could possibly go wrong..... right?

There's lots of stories that have accrued along the way.  In fact, yours truly has had a completely new life develop since then, and yes, I credit blogging for a fair chunk of that.

Blogging has brought people into my life I otherwise would never have known.  That, in turn, has taken people out of my life as I changed and grew.

Such is the way of life, I suppose.

Six years..... somehow it seems like a lifetime.

I lurk and like what I have read here and your other venture. I lurk because I never looked at comments here and have non of the accounts to access the other sight. Congratulations! As a response to your post of 6/28/13, I feel and note the same attachment/detachment. Maybe letters?

Thanks, Carteach! BTW, a recent post of yours reminded me that it's time to take my son to Appleseed. We are going in two weeks!

Keep up the great blogging.
