I meant to keep tally of my posts last week. I knew I was approaching 1000 posts and put a reminder on my calender for 20th June. However, when I checked up on my posts yesterday, I saw that I'd already reached 1003 posts.
I started this blog on 1 October 2008 so this is not a blogaversary. This celebrates more than a thousand posts.
Thanks to all my fellow bloggers who follow and/or read my blog and make posting worthwhile and enjoyable.
Above is a small collage of a few of the birds we spotted on Sunday. On Wednesday I'll post more of the birds we saw.
Yesterday also marked the start of Wimbledon. Watching a documentary of Wimbledon down the years, I saw a replay of one of the best matches I've ever watched: Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe. In 1980 the fiesty young American entered the scene but the Swede heartthrob, also known as the Iceborg because of his cool, unruffled demeanour beat John McEnroe in a five-set match making it his fifth consecutive win at Wimbledon. This match went down in the annals as the best Wimbledon final. The next year, John McEnroe was back and this time, he beat Borg in four sets. Those years, I watched this final as well.
Since 2005, when we lived on a goldmine camp in Guinea, West Africa, we've not had television - until returning to this camp here in Kenya. I will be following the tournament in the next two weeks, although I'll have to learn most of the new players .
