A Year in Pictures

One of the things you'll notice about my blog is that I always like to try to include some kind of reference image or clip art in every post I write as another way to associate with the story.

Over time, these images roll off the page never to be referenced again.

Until now that is.

Here is a collage of
some of the graphics I've used over the last year or so. See if any of these cause you to recall the posts they came from.

Depending on how your browser is set, if you click the picture it will get even bigger.

And in case you'd really like to stretch your memory, I did the same thing here back in 2007.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

UPDATE... Other than the fact that I'm lazy, I couldn't think of a good reason not to add an index for these pictures. So here it is:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71

2008 was very good to you ! :)

Wish you a much happier and a more fun 2009 (well the rest of the 11 months anyway) !

Anonymous said...

How come no index? I did recognize your bad toenails.

Jeff said...

jaffer - Thanks. I'm looking forward to the rest (and warmer parts) of 2009.

anon - Are you kidding? I'm not nearly that ambitious. Also, I've had a pedicure since then.

Ed (zoesdad) said...

I found it interesting that the vegemite picture was right next to the toenail picture. Coincidence??

JunkDrawer Kathy said...

How fun! I think my favorite was the Axe post. Oh, wait, wait! The Mullet. Yes, The Mullet. No wait! Soapy Jeff in the shower!

I don't remember the disgusting toenails one. What post was that??

Jeff said...

ed - No... all those disgusting things are grouped together intentionally.

kathy - Hang in there for a few more minutes. Anon talked me into adding an index. Boy, that was tough eh?

rick said...

I claim four photo credits. Yay me!

unfinishedrambler said...

Wow! I am super impressed. I'm bookmarking this one for later to go through...probably tomorrow when I have a little more time. Tonight a Battlestar Galactica marathon (from Netflix) trumps you, sorry. ;)

Michelle said...

I was so sure that you were going to have people start naming the posts... AND that you'd have people who actually knew them all (or were willing to look them up). I feel better now.

And NO I can't respond to all the posts. I have more email than I did when I was on maternity leave for three plus months with Mister Man. The best I can do is go to each blog and personally thank the people. I'm overwhelmed -- but in a good way.

OHHHH! I got a real word. Ability. I feel like I need to use it in a sentence. I do not have the ability to respond to each quote but will get back to that shortly.

Father Muskrat said...

Cool...art!

yellojkt said...

I recognize your son at a city council meeting and Mr. Know-it-All.

Elizabeth said...

My favorite is 52. Awesome hair dude!!

People in the Sun said...

Holy Mother of Christ, Allahu Akbar, Elohim! Picture 52 will haunt me 'till the day I die.

Heather said...

Wow a lot of those photos gave me nightmares.

Jeff said...

rick - Yes, and make sure to spend them wisely.

unfinished rambler - Nerd.

michelle - No, I would never expect anyone to comment on these pictures. I just thought it'd be fun to see if people remembered them.

father muskrat - I like Art too. Although Simon is a better singer.

yellojkt - Pretty good. Just 69 more to go!

elizbeth - Glad you liked it. The next commenter had a slightly different take on it.

people - So... you're saying that picture disturbed you then? I'm a little unclear on that. ;-)

heather - I like the toenails picture. I keep a blown-up copy on the breakfast table.

Mom Thumb said...

The aerial view of your house from the 2007 photos. I recognize it because I wasted an afternoon on that site looking up everyone I knew and every house I'd ever lived in!

My word is palaniad. That's a mythical fawn-like creature.

Memarie Lane said...

The most memorable for me was your vegemite post. And of course the story of how you and Charli met.

JD at I Do Things said...

Sir, I bow to your awesomeness.

All those pictures in collage form AND an index?! I loves it.

I had to look up #64. I remember the post, but I must've blocked out that toenail image from my mind.

Good job!

Jeff said...

mom thumb - Huh, I thought that word was something you took after ingesting too much of a certain VP candidate last fall.

memarie - Ah yes... the great vegemite/marmite challenge of 2008. I'm still trying to get that taste out of my mouth.

jd - Thank you for bowing to my awesomeness. Do you have any idea how many people refuse to do that?

Maureen said...

Um, you cannot be considered lazy to put all THAT together! WITH an index.... Hey! I see me!!! Awesome, and on some occasions, scary. What a great review.

VE said...

Awesome job there. I remember all of these. And some I'm trying to forget! ;)

cathouse teri said...

So nice collaging down memory lane! Hard to pick a fave, but I did so love #63's story.
