I’ve been blogging for twelve years! I started this blog on January 22, 2005 and the very first photograph I posted was of me and my friend Ellen Cooper, drumming at her New Year’s Eve party. I’m happy to say that I was at her New Year’s Eve party last month, except I was playing a shaker instead of a caxia. My drumming is rusty these days.
I don’t have a picture from Ellen’s party last month, but here we are at another recent party with my former Manhattan Samba bandmates (who still play). I’m in the back left and my hair is styled exactly the same. Ellen is standing right behind the two guys on the front right.
All the remaining posts in January, 2005 were about cats, surprise, surprise. Here is Finney when he was only two years old, sprawled on my desk with a Haydn score.
And here is Finney today. His hair has yet to grow back on his shaved leg, but as you can plainly see, he is still the cutest cat in the whole wide world, tied with Bleecker.
