Old Long Island Turns 8!

Today marks the eighth anniversary of the creation of Old Long Island.  I'm not really sure what to say for this anniversary to be quite honest... never in a million years did I think OLI would make it to four let alone eight.  As has become my usual statement at this time of year I solemnly pledge to continue posting stuff for as long as I find stuff to post.  That might mean short, medium or long lulls in between postings... but that doesn't mean I've left.  It just means I'm somewhere digging around for more images.  Thank you to everyone who reads Old Long Island, I would have given up long ago had it not been for your continued presence.  Above, my Australian Shepherd Otto who will turn 9 years old in 3 weeks.  He was but a pup when this place began and now, two knee replacements later, he's officially an old man.  Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, I will see you in 2016.
