Sorry about the lack of posts…

I started Famous Ankles in July 2007 as a way to communicate with family and friends and to detail what I kept seeing in NYC.  Then, in August 2007 I started to post daily and after a while…well, it got to be a habit.  Unfortunately, I kept seeing mileposts along the way.  Two months of daily posts, three, four…  Eventually, I started thinking about hitting the one year mark of daily posts.  And I made it.  However, the last three or four months of the run were pretty wearing on me and I’ve decided to take a bit of a break.

I will start posting again soon.  I’ve been trying to think of ways to make it a little more fresh and interesting.  So far, the ideas just aren’t working out.  Strangely enough, I do have materials for posts as I still take some pictures but it just seems like variations on posts that I’ve done before.  I could just post the pictures, but I really hate putting in a picture without context.  A picture without a story is just somebody else’s picture.  It can be interesting, it can be terrific; but I don’t think my photographic skills are able to carry the post unaided.  Besides, I like to have the context and the story.  I just want to make it interesting for me to detail what I’m seeing and hopefully convey that joy to my readers.

So, in the meantime feel free to enjoy the blog.  I purposely fashioned it so that almost any part can be read without worrying too much whether it is outdated.  The events I’ve covered like parades are actually just moments captured and preserved.  As they should be, at least in my opinion.

I’ll post on occasion.

    Thanks for the update. Cuzzn Cathy and I have parade pictures for you from Plains Georgia. Not big like those Manhatten parades. But NY doesn’t have tractors in its parades!

    I am now officially calling upon the New York civic community to close the tractor gap!

    The day NYC has a tractor in a parade, I’ll be there! We had a great time in Plains and it was neat to be around Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter and their home town. The school museum (which is not a one room schoolhouse) is wonderful as is Jimmy’s boyhood farm. But one of the most interesting points of interest was brother Billy Carter’s gas station where he and so many townsfolk hung out and the media seeked out when Jimmy was elected. He was quite a popular guy in Plains even before his brother became president. Have a great day! Cathy

    This is not really a comment but I can’t find your email address anywhere.
    I am writing the new entry in my blog on The whole thing is going to elaborate on american parades. Since the website is in Polish and for Poles I would like to give the readers some details on the Pulaski Parade. May I translate and quote few passages from your entry on Pulaski Parade? I found your comments so hilarious and on point. Wouldn’t you mind sharing it with readers in Poland?
    I really love your blog! Kasia
