7th Anniversary

Every July I think I should write an anniversary post, then assign myself the grandiose task of making a comprehensive statement, something I never have time for. I usually only get as far as identifying an image in the public domain that might anchor the never-to-be-written post.

On the seventh anniversary of Baseball Byways, I will simply make one observation from this experience. When I enter a phrase like "4th anniversary" in a search engine and then refine that to only return images that are "free to use and share," the net results are usually an odd mix, not even a particularly entertaining one.
