Thank you for 2014

Amazing how quickly a year flows by.

When, yesterday, I was wondering what to post today, I was curious as to what I had posted a year ago to the day: January 15th., 2014.

To my surprise it was the WordPress summary of my year in blogging; for 2013. I’m not going to prattle on with all the figures, just offer the following: Learning from Dogs was viewed about 93,000 times in 2014. The busiest day of the year was April 16th with 879 views. The most popular post that day was The night sky above.

I dropped in to that post, to refresh my memory of what it was, and saw that it was just delightful. As there have been a great number of new followers in the last twelve months, it seemed worthy of being repeated. Trust me, it’s not what one might expect from the title.


The night sky above.

Billions of stars

The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert.

After they got their tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep. Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says,

Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see?

The Lone Ranger replies,

I see millions of stars.

Tonto then responded,

What that tell you?

The Lone Ranger ponders for a minute then says,

Astronomically speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.

However, astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo.

Then again, thinking about the time just now, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning.

From a theologically perspective, it’s evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant.

Finally, meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.

What’s it tell you, Tonto?”

Tonto is silent for a moment, then says,

Kemo Sabe, you dumber then buffalo chip. Someone has stolen tent.”


So returning to the theme of blogging for 2014, all I want to add is this: Thank you all for taking an interest in Learning from Dogs.

      1. Oh, really Sue? Trevor (the drummer) is a fantastic guy; very funny and quite wild too! He used to be in a band called The Peddlers, who you also may remember. Rupert Hine, the singer, is now a big-time producer. Quantum Jump were tremendous fun, and very creative too.

  1. You made me giggle with your Lone Ranger and Tonto humorous scene. Looking at the night sky does make me wax poetic, but the reality is I hate sleeping on the hard earth or a cold canvas cot. I’ve figured out I enjoy gazing at the sky and sitting by a campfire, but then go and sleep in a bed. hehehe
