13 Years of Laura's Miscellaneous Musings

Somehow the years keep rolling quickly by...as of today Laura's Miscellaneous Musings has been in existence for a very lucky 13 years!

What I wrote last year still holds true: "With each passing year I'm more grateful than ever for the wonderful people and experiences which have become part of my life thanks to this blog."

I am most fortunate for what blogging has brought into my life. My deepest appreciation to all my readers for your continued friendship and support.

Previous blog anniversaries: 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.

Well done! You and your blog provide a wonderful insight on so many interesting films that even the most diehard of us old movie fans still have yet to discover. Thank you!

Congratulations on the anniversary, Laura! I have always enjoyed your blog and I know how difficult it can be keeping a blog up for so long! Most people don't realise how short-lived the average blog is. One that is 13 years old is positively ancient, so keeping one up that long is a real accomplishment.

You are a beacon on the internet. Thank you.

PS: My daughter smile when we watch something and I start a sentence with "Laura said...". She gets her Miscellaneous Musings second-hand, but she gets them.

13 years, huh? Pity I didn't retire one year earlier - then I might have discovered your great blog, and your valued friendship, right from the get-go!

Wonderful achievement, Laura. Thank you and I hope you can keep going for many, many years to come.

Well how about that - I'm the 13th comment on your 13th year post. Where has the time gone?!!! Congratulations on 13 years of great, interesting posts about TV, movies, western locations, etc - and of course Disneyland :) I may not comment very often but know that I read your blog every single day. It's part of my go to routine. Here's to many more years of fine writing.

Very many congratulations, Laura, on your dedication and achievement! I have only been along for the ride for the past several years but the friendship that has developed between us is much valued by me. When my classic movies friends hear me say 'My friend Laura....' they all now know who I mean.
I check in every day without fail.
