RIP "MaryAnn" Dawn Wells and a very very short follow up

 We lost an old favorite of many men my age yesterday. RIP MaryAnn. It seems like just the other day I was reading a post about her. I know I did.

A little blog follow up.

As many are noting their year in review, I noticed the one thing I did not post was the actual blog notes.

Here they are, it is short.

I shattered my post record with what will be 482 post for the year. I had noticed this back in November originally when I was considering dumping my collection. I had forgotten about it until just today.

My old record was like 302, beating the previous record of 301. Totally blew it out of the water, and I know why. I did a boatload of give aways this year disguised as contests and games. I figure 100 of my posts go directly to those areas.

Big Fun Fridays, probably made up most of those as they lasted for more than half of the year. The Bingo games added many extra posts too considering there were actually only 4 Bingo nights.

Anyways, I'll be working on my 2021 Hobby goals today and will post them later tonight.

Happy New years (eve).


  1. You've been flying through posts lately -- I can't keep up!

    Dawn Wells' death hit me a little harder than some of the other recent celebrity deaths and that was surprising. I was too young for the original Gilligan's Island, but watched reruns as a kid. I think it's because she was "the young one" on the show.

  2. Oh man. That's terrible news about Wells. I loved her character on Gilligan's Island and was totally on Team MaryAnn.

    Anyways... congratulations on publishing 482 posts in a single year. That number is special to me because it's Rickey Henderson and Tony Gwynn's Topps rookie card numbers.

  3. As a young girl watching reruns, Mary Ann was so wholesome. She was my favorite cast member. I wanted to be a Mary Ann which is good since being a Ginger wasn't in my genes. Happy New Year!

  4. That is a lot of posts! My record is just a little over 100 in a year, I think. I don't imagine that I'll be breaking it anytime soon.
