Window Look

Who am I, really?
Here are a few hints.
I did a lot in 2013, but here are a few things that I did not do or even attempt------

I did not go on a diet.
I did not take a 'selfie'.
I did not attempt to 'twerk'.
Did not twitter.
Did not use any #birdmans.
Did not watch one episode of "Walking Dead".
Did not go to a movie theater.
Did not buy any iTunes.
Did not wish that I was in any way related to anyone named Kardashian.
Did not get a dog.
Did not eat lamb.
Did not get a tattoo.
... and don't think I'm heading in any of these directions in '14.
Enjoy your night and kiss 2013 Goodbye!

* I did do something though. I continued to post here every day. Haven't missed a day since 12/31/08. 


  1. No movie theaters? At all???? I do know some things that you DID do, but your secrets are good with me! Happy New Year, Birdman! I wish you continued success with your blog - I have been a devoted fan since the beginning! (BTW - why do you need a dog when you had a "dog niece"???).

  2. i have 4 dogs. i did take selfies. but that's the only difference to me. :)

    happy 2014!

  3. Gosh, I'm right there with you except for the movie theatre and iTunes. Have a fun new year's eve!

  4. oh my gosh, the thought of you twerking makes me laugh!! take a selfie while twerking and tweet it!! have a happy new year silly man!

  5. Happy New Year, Birdman! Who are you? With that list I would say you are a geezer, just like me. No movies? Must be a personal thing. I love movies, especially in large theaters.

  6. I guess I am something not so different: I did not do everything you did not do and I even did that one with the asterisk! I will try to keep not doing those things also in 2014!
    Happy New Year to you and your family!

  7. I went to a movie but none of the other things either! Keep on posting and have a great New Year's eve.

  8. From what you did not do, I'd say we have a hell of lot in common. But, I always knew you were one of the good guys! Happy New Year!

  9. Have enjoyed your posts for years -- looking forward to more in 2014

  10. Your consistent posting record is impressive. I am glad you did not do any of the things on your list!

  11. I could have written that list! Congrats on your daily posts. Me too, since 2/07. Birds of a feather. Happy New year......

  12. WOW! Congratulations! That is an exceptional accomplishment. I love reading your little stories and essays reflecting on life in Maine.

    I only managed 362 posts this year. Wonder what happened on those other days.

  13. Good on you!!

    Wish you and yours a brilliant 2014!!

  14. I also didn't do many of the things you listed. :)
    2013 was a good year, but I'm ready for a fresh start.
    All my best to you and your family in 2014!

  15. This post made me smile, Birdman. I didn't do any of those things this year either. ;)) Happy New Year!

  16. Ha, I join you and the big bunch of your followers who had better things to do than what is on your list.
    And I heartily approve of your to do list for 2014.
    Happy new year, Birdman.

  17. Ha! Your list is my list Birdman, hope that doesn't mean we're a pair of boring old you know what's :)) Must admit to missing a few post though!

  18. Happy New Year Birdman. That's quite a streak you have going and you never relinquish an ounce of quality in your work. Bravo.

  19. Well I tweeted and did eat some lamb but did none of the other things - other things I didn't do were send texts, drink alcohol, drive a car nor smoke.

  20. Whoah, five years of posting every single day--! Zounds!

  21. P. S. Love that photo with the curtain 'frame.' I didn't do any of those things either, except for tweeting. You might actually like that because you can choose to merely listen, and you can listen to only those you want to listen to, and occasionally you can jump in and say something, *if you choose.*
