WILD ABOUT HARRY January 2019 in review

I'm always concerned that the volume and speed of posts here on WILD ABOUT HARRY causes people to miss something they might have otherwise enjoyed. I post (almost) daily, but I certainly can't expect people to visit daily. So here's a rundown of posts by category that I've shared during this first month of 2019. As you can see, we're off to a WILD year!

If people like this idea of a monthly review post, let me know in the Comments and I will make it a regular feature.


  1. I like it. Keep up the good work.

  2. Really nice to have this wrap up John. I do visit your site daily though :)


  3. The visit here is always well worth it. Aside from the daily posts, I often see something in the side column that I want to check out or revisit. Always enjoyable and always fires my imagination. Grateful!
