Saturday Snapshot: We Survived!



This is a picture of MLH, moi and the boy Russell, that we used for our Christmas card back in 1999. 
As you can see we had all the necessary provisions to survive Y2K. Thank heavens for Costco!

Since the world ended yesterday on 12/21/2012, I thought there was a certain poetry in making this my first post of the post-Apocalypse world. 

How's Day One of your brave, new world?

When I can, I participate in Saturday Snapshot, a fun photo meme hosted by Alyce at AtHomeWithBooks  
The idea is to post your own photos, not stuff you swipe off the net. Visit Alyce to play along.

  1. I've been having a spam problem too.
    I also adjusted my comments settings and things have been fine since (esp the one about posts older than 14 days as it's fairly easy to keep a track of recent posts, but those sneaky comments coming in on posts from over a year ago where harder to moniter!)
    Maybe it is the end of the world after all :-)

  4. Great idea for a Christmas photo! I think I'm still here, although I did see a Facebook post that there is wifi in hell, so maybe that's how I'm still keeping up with everyone's posts :) Happy Christmas!

  5. AH! I love it. I remember how stressed out we were about Y2K.

  6. I think there was more fervor put into the whole Y2K thing; this Mayan event seemed anticlimactic.

    Love your photo.

    Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

    1. I think you're right. We weren't really worried about it ... and certainly didn't stockpile in reality ... but there was more of a genuine concern that legitimate people, companies, etc addressed.
      Thanks for visiting Laurel-Rain!

  7. I was more worried that crazy people would do something stupid than anything else when it came to this Mayan thing. Just a day of rest at our house and watching movies today.

    1. I wondered whether a fringe element would do something but we mostly had a laugh about it.
