Yesterday I tried to load a photo of some tomatoes that produced fruit after getting no water for 3 weeks and a message appeared. Picasso full. I wondered, What the heck is a Picasso? Only to discover all the photos I've posted here on Picasso. Cool. They are all there neatly in folders. A mountain of photos, I might add. Seriously. I had no idea I've posted that many photos since this blog's inception in 2008. I found out that to continue using this blog I would now have to pay to store more photos. It's only $2.49 a month, but still, I'm pretty cheap and what could be had for free is better than spending a buck for the same thing.
So, I decided to start a new blog over on WordPress. I'm calling it a Mountain of Memories, because I realize that's what this blog has been all about. Memories stored, but not forgotten. I plan on posting more photos and short posts of things to treasure. But who knows? These blogs sometimes have a mind of their own. Mark's vision for our future is more travel, so it could end up being a travelogue, which might be quite fun.
Honestly, I was tempted to just quit blogging all together. This ranch blog has been pretty dry now for a year or two, but then I heard Bertha's voice. Bertha is this wonderful woman in my old hometown, and every time I bump into her or chat on FB, she always says she LOVES my blog. It makes her day. So Bertha, a big part of why I'm continuing blogging is you. :-)
