Happy Eighth Birthday to Us

Perfect Duluth Day is eight years old today — Wednesday, June 29. We’ll be celebrating tonight at Burrito Union around 8:30ish. Stop on by. There will be a weird cake and an array of door prizes. (We’ll probably be out on the deck — space and weather permitting — so look there first. Find the people with cake on their lips.)

Also, yours truly (Paul Lundgren) will be a guest today on “The Local” with Christine Dean the Radio Queen, celebrating PDD’s birthday by playing songs with “Duluth” in the lyrics or title. That’s at 5 p.m. on 103.3 FM KUMD.

Thanks to Barrett and Starfire for starting this thing and to all you bloggers, cloggers and corn doggers who keep it going. We’re on a pace to hit 10,000 posts before the end of the year. That’s kind of something.

Woo hoo! I made it into 2 of the photos! Sincerely, despite my occasional snarkiness, anonymous tirades, and general loafing about the site, PDD is an awesome "thing" to have in our community. Thanks to the founders and admin, and to the collection of weird, annoying, fascinating, and beautiful contributors. I'm still waiting for -berv to bring back his Microsoft Paint drawings.

Actually, I got snipped out of the Willie photo. Conspiracy?

Vicarious, if you click on the photo you'll see it full size. WordPress automatically crops gallery photos to push the faces of undesirables out of sight.

I moved from Duluth many years ago to continue employment as my employer moved (early 70's). I read this site everyday to keep up with my birthplace and occasionally post. Keep up the great work, Paul it is much appreciated!

Here's a shot of the cake: (The phrase "substantiate your hate" comes from the comments to the "Rod Grams' revenge" post.)
