The Alphabet of a Thousand. A Thank You.

This is post number one thousand for ireckonthat. What started as an experimentation in blogging and money has moved through a major procrastination and into a general film, TV and book diary for myself, and if you like it, awesome. But today, as a thank you to anyone who has followed this, or reads it, or just stumbles across it, here is the alphabet of a thousand – I have put 1000 into google images followed by a letter and taken the first option given.

So, 1000 a = 1000 armed kannon.

Gathered

A friend introduced me to a group on Facebook, #amonthof. It’s a group which has a series of prompts each day and you can respond any way you want – photos, poems, writing, whatever. For January 5, the prompt was ‘gathered’ and I was totally and utterly stumped. Then I remembered Google Images. Phew! This is certainly not as funny as some of the searches I’ve done, but I like it. Especially because it started with my favourite bird.
