One year ago today I started posting my thoughts for all to see. To be honest, I didn't think I'd make it one month let alone one year. I've been amazed at all all the encouragement I have gotten since the first week. I just started posting about the things that I know about. |One of my frequent topics has been my family. My readers have gotten to meet my wife, son, daughters, sons-in-law, father-in-law, and mother-in-law.

I've posted about one birth, one wedding, and WIXYjr going to college.

Now it's time to once again meet my family.

Holding the youngest grandchild is my wife, Kathy, known also here as Mrs74WIXYgrad. Our other grandson is sitting to her left.

In the left hand side of the photo is our daughter, Martha. Sitting next to her is our granddaughter. Martha has occasionally posted in the comment section as WIXY jrette the 1st.

Next we have our daughter Sylva, who had taken photos for the blog in the early days, standing next to her husband of a little more than two months, Eddie.

Our son, Adam is pictured to your left. Probably the one I've written about the most. Known here as WIXYjr.

Our other son-in-law, Kevin is in this picture on your far right. At the left is Don Foutty, one of the owners of the Rittman IGA, a business I've written a fair amount of posts about.

Rounding out the family post are my in-laws, Eddie and Ella Jean Bowyer. As everyone can see, Eddie is doing fine since his stroke last November.

And me, you can see my photo at the upper right hand corner of the blog. And if you have read the blog the past week you know what my name is.

You have a beautiful family Cliff. Congratulations on your first year of blogging. I've only been on board a few weeks but it's been an enjoyable read.

Happy Anniversary Cliff on your first year of blogging!
Your family is so precious and I look forward to seeing more of them as the years roll by!
Have a super day today!

Love the blog. Been reading it since the beginning. I have told you many times how much it inspires many of us on a daily basis. I am thrilled to see it has brought others in contact with each other. You have shared the world with us all. Bless you Cliff! And bless that family of yours. Keep on writing, keep on posting!

Do me a favor, you haven't written a fried chicken blog for some time. You know how much I enjoy the chicken!

All the best...WZZP (formerly RIPJoelRose)

Long weekend coming up. I might have to go to the old stomping grounds and try some of that Rego's chicken you rave about.

Or I might go to Liquid's place for some southern fried chicken-naw they're cattle ranchers.
