This is big for me, and not only because it’s also my age. It means there are FIFTY people Out There who were once inclined to click the Follow button and be notified every time I post. I know the world’s population has almost reached 7 billion, but it is still wonderful to me that 50 of those 7 billion people get to be here regularly :-) Perhaps it’s time for another give-away to celebrate?

To be continued…
