We got tagged yesterday - thrice! But, we're passing it along only once. Meanwhile, figuring you were tired of Ocala, we're posting a shot of a certain favorite city which many of you will recognize right off. (It's been Photoshopped a bit to protect the innocent!)

Two of the tags were for Ocala Daily Photo: one by Christopher Raun Leth @ Christopher's Photos and the other by Nanak @ Mataram-Lombok Daily Photo. The third tag came for The Villages Daily Photo by Joo of Urban Stories.

Thank you all for the honor bestowed up us!

The rules are simple: Tag and link back to the person who tagged you. List six (un) important things that make you happy. Tag six bloggers and let them know they're "it". We all feel this blogging community to be one of inclusion and friendship.

Six of the many things that make me happy are:

Being with Lois Anne
Seeing my children and grandchildren succeed
A Nikon around my neck
Visiting new places, meeting new people
Paris - in all its glory
The freedom of retirement

My six tagged bloggers are:

Mitch at Daily Minneapolis Photograph
Knoxville Girl at Knoxville Daily Photo
Halcyon at Jackson Daily Photo
Cieldequimper at Versailles Daily Photo
Buenos Aires Perception
Hilda at My Manilla

Hey thanks! This tag thing is certainly going round and round at the moment. I've only just had it a couple of days ago, so this time, I bow out graciously! Thank you for thinking of Versailles though and hey, where did you take that photo??? :-))

Cezar and Léia said...

wow It's so nice to play, isn't it?!
Very cool!
hummm I'm envious about "the feedom of retirement" and your Nikon!
You and Lois Anne are great friends and your blogs are wonderful, informative and full of beautiful pictures!

Jacob said...

@ Tricia - Thank you very much for those kind words!

Jacob said...

@ Cezar and Leia - You folks are just too sweet - thank you!

Jacob said...

@ Ciel - Re: the tagging. I understand, but wanted to "honor" your unfailing commitment to CDP and your great spirit and wonderful humor.

Where did I take that photo, indeed!

Crowded street! I really like it!:) I don't know why (traffic jam is rather not a nice thing:)) but it has something special...

Hilda said...

Oh no, like Ciel, I have no idea where you took this photo!

This is a fun tag! I'll do it — just don't know when, as usual :)

Wish I was already at your #6! I am so looking forward to that day…

Halcyon said...

Thank you so much for the tag! I will post mine as soon as I have a minute to think about it.

I really do enjoy all of my virtual friendships!

Compliment for the tagging!
Paris, Rue Danou looking toward Boulevard des Capucines.

Jacob said...

Vogon Poet - You are so damn smart! ;-))

Lee Spangler said...

Thanks again for visiting me in Bend. Ocala sounds great too. But I guess what is important is who you are rather than where you are. It appears from the comments of the other folks that you are first class and your photos are special as well.

Bravo for the tagging and bravo for the Paris feeling we get just looking at the picture!

Jacob said...

@ Marie-Noyale - Somehow I just knew you'd know Paris when you saw it!
