April 9th on this Blog through History – Coincidence Abounds

Fellow blogger, Herba, followed by Guylty Pleasure, set up a little exercise to find out what was posted on our blogs for this day, April 9, in history. This blog started in July 2013.

I checked my log and came across a post that I’d never seen before. On my own blog! It was guest-post , dated April 9, 2014, written by guest blogger, KatharineD, and here it is. She’s giving a heads- up on The Hobbit Lego Game. It’s quite charming, actually.


One might ask how it was that I didn’t know what was in a post on my own blog. The reason reminded me of something else I hadn’t thought of today: April 9 was the day that I moved from New York to Mexico. Yup, today is my 3 year anniversary as an ex-pat. While I was taking care of business and getting ready to move, Katharine was gracious and helpful enough to keep a watch on the blog for a few weeks. Nice surprise!

In 2015 on April 9, I posted a little news about the Olivier Awards here. The article suggested that the winner was too close to call. Another coincidence, and what I hadn’t realized, was that among the competitors in Richard Armitage’s category was Tim Piggot-Smith ( King Charles III by Mike Bartlett) , who, as we know, died this weekend, and who was in North and South with Richard Armitage.

Alas, no posts on this date for last year.

  1. Congrats on your move, Perry! I can hardly believe that it is already 3 years. I remember the run-up to it very well.
    And thanks for digging through your blog for this memory game – it was great fun reading that post on the Lego game. I miss KatharineD, btw, so in case she lurks and reads: Hello!

  3. Hi Perry, and hello to you, too, Guylty!
    Perry- I well remember your madcap rush to tie off all the loose ends from your NY life, and pack for Mexico- a very stressful time for you. I can’t say I particularly recall writing the Hobbit Lego post, but I think I more or less managed to keep the blog ticking over in your absence. It all seems like quite awhile ago, but three years, you say?-wow, tempus surely does fugit!


  4. 3 years already wow!! hope the new home is all it promised to be in these years 🙂
    And lovely Hobbity post from KD as well! i’m really enjoying everyone’s trips down memory lane too 🙂
