boynton turns three today
I don't know which of these images best sums up one's thoughts on blogging
but thank you for sharing part of the journey.
I'll take the goat for mine.

Happy Birthday Dear Boynton, everyone knows it takes 3 years to get a garden or a Vintage going, and that the fourth year is the Masterpiece, so I happily anticipate The Very Special Old Pale Boynton VSOP.

I'll tether the goat here for a week and then send him over to the Tugboat for your celebrations, Gummo.
(not for a ragout ;)

I will certainly become older and paler ;)

LOve your blog. Glad you've kept it up this long. Congrats. Many happy returns...

Quite a hurdle. Happy blogday oh pale one!

Hey thanks - appreciate that.
btw - just noticed that not only did 'the Age' first publish on this date 151 years ago (see last year's blogiversary edition) but National Geographic issued number one on 17/10 1888.*
*via Grow a Brain
(Think I've become old and pallid in the last year of blogging otherwise I might have whipped up a "National Boyntographic" commemorative edition...
Too late now)

Only one girl is applauding. One is eating her fingers and one is kneading a kitten.

I thought it was a digital camera, but maybe it is a digital kitten.
Maybe she's the third year of blogging - knows the score and can applaud and record at the same time.

I suppose a rogan josh is out of the question too :(

Good for a Cup Day celebration.

Well done :)

I am applauding this effort. You can't hear anything cos a) you are very far away and b) i've only got one arm.

All three seem appropriate, but from my experience I'd have to say the image of pulling the goat is most appropriate.
After four years, I find it amazingly easy to write some days and darn near impossible on others.
Still, it's always fun to watch someone else try to move that goat.

I like this, peacay :
"In the cool of morning
I fry up a slab of SPAM
A dog barks next door"
Alas I don't get the strange email spam anymore,
but I've tried to make that old spam scan:
It’s about your life
And it is more serious
Than A heart attack
you will spite yourself
to not read every word here
You still have a chance
Thnks Link, Kent, armless Russ
and Loren, yes I think the three girls applauding another bloggers' efforts at jumping over the daily hurdle sums up most of my blogging experience.
Still the Goat is part of a Beach Carnival afterall, so that's important.
And thanks ever so much, Mr Ramage.
I like this description
"As the traditional customs generally involved noise, begging or the risk of bad behaviour, many people were happy to see them go. Henry Taunt, however, was among those who wanted to preserve the attractive parts of these festivities and to maintain a link with a more romantic past."

Belated happy 3, B. Yes, as a Radio Userland client, it's the goat for me too!

Seems like the goat gets the vote...
Despite those days when blogging gets my goat...

Feel it would be foolish to attempt to improve on the immortal words of Martin the Loofah King:- "Three at last! Three at last! Thank God Almighty, she are three at last."
(Sorry, the congratulationalisations are unconscionably belated, however we were in the culpable hands of the Significant Other-in-law as he moved us painlessly across to Internode broad bean.)

Broad bean land beckons, (somewhere near broady?) but I'm still in languid has been land.
