For those new to the show and our website, the Friends of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast page was started way back in November of 2006. We’ve added people from around the world, enjoying every additional smile place on our pages. However, today is the first time we’ve achieved a certain level of balance previously lacking.
Thanks to the efforts of our latest friend, Greg M., we have created a warm and embracing bookend to this page of friends. With Greg’s photo, our very first photo (Sheena) and our last photo are both from the great state of Massachusetts (and yes, I had to spell check the name of the state. . .don’t judge me.)
The minute I added Greg’s photo, I felt a certain sense of feng shui come over me. As I published the updated page, a small bluebird landed on the windowsill outside my office, gave me a wink and a nod, and said that all is right in the world.
This, naturally, scared the crap out of me.
But, as is the case with all great Disney movies (Mary Poppins, for example), I buried my fears and decided to interact with the animated bird.
During our conversation (which included tea. . .he likes decafe like me), I asked him if this balance means I should stop accepting new photos. ‘Billy’ said no — that in fact this balance required many more photos to further the good of all mankind.
So, welcome to the page, Greg. And to the rest of you reading this, Billy wants you to send a photo. Remember, it’s for the good of all mankind. Sure, he’s only an animated bluebird, but I think he’s got a little vulture in him.
Do you understand the power that is Billy?! Just attach a photo of yourself to an email and send it, along with your name and location, to firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s Easy. It’s Free. And it’ll keep a flock of angry bluebirds off your front porch.
