Top Commenters - July, and Some Plans

sunset

Here is yesterday's beautiful sunset! They were saying we might get to see the Northern Lights, but I checked a couple of times before I went to bed with no luck, so had to settle for sunlight... but it isn't shabby!

I'm happy to report there were 53 different people who left messages in July, and a total of 286 separate comments (not counting my own responses to them).

The top 10 commenters for the past month are:
Ann's Snap & Edit (Ann- 32 comments)- Hey, I don't mind that Ann always has something to say, but doesn't this challenge someone to beat her some month?
Carmen's Chronicles (Carmen- 27 comments)- Carmen shares her life around San Francisco.
My Journey (rainfield61- 22 comments)- rainfield communes with small creatures and landscapes
String Too Short to Tie (David (vanilla)- 20 comments)- David is taking some time off from this blog, but is still visiting his friends
The Everyday Adventurer (Ratty- 19 comments)- detailed looks at the beauty around us- usually critters!
Secondary Roads (Chuck- 18 comments)- life in the slow lane- with his wonderful kitty, Midnight
Don't Unplug Your Hub (John- 14 comments)- a new reader, with an interesting life- check it out.
The Joys of Simple Life (Betchai- 12 comments) beautiful hikes in the western US- if you love mountains, go visit her
The Best Parts (Ferd- 11 comments)- he and Gail share their lives and birding adventures
Spinning Lovely Days (Ivy- 10 comments)- a mom and mom-to-be, but this is more than a mommy blog.

I really value all of you! The small banner in the sidebar for a month is just a tiny way to say thanks for sharing your thoughts.

And the plans? The annual North Country Trail Association conference is the coming weekend in Dayton. I'm meeting Marie in Ohio on Monday, and we will be hiking for three days toward the goal of finishing the Buckeye Trail. This won't be a very wild walk, but I'm sure there will be fun things to share. There always are!

I'm going to load some posts that will show up in case I don't get to do them while on the road. But I'm sure I'll have some chances to bring you "live coverage."

How I miss those trekking days. There's no weekend that we traverse those mountain side and camp out before going to work the next day.

Enjoy your week away, just as I come back. I'm still exploring the area we moved to two years ago. We went walking with Jade over Canford Heath today after parking in a layby on a road we've driven many times. Two minutes from the road and we were in a wilderness with just the muted traffic sounds to remind us of civilisation.

Hei Sharky, Thanks for the shout out and the link.

Do keep all those statistics by hand or do you have a gadget or app that does that for you?

What a beautiful sunset picture.
I thought for sure someone would beat me this month for comments. I might have to back off before people start thinking I have no life other than my computer...rofl

borris- one puts in the time required of the stage of life

Jean- I love to find those secret places that are so near at hand!

Ann- you clearly have a life. Duke would never let you ignore him.

Dang! I'm booted again!! I've got to work harder next month. Sheesh--that darn Ann really puts the pressure on!

It's nice to be in the top commenters again with some of my favorite bloggers. I couldn't ask for better company.
