6th Anniversary!

And to think it all started six years ago when I posted this photo of a clown promoting the Disneyland Circus.

My second post featured this December 26, 1955 image. Quaint as they may be, I love the primitive looking Christmas decorations strewn across Main Street U.S.A.

Zooming in, you can see the guests enjoying all the sites on Main Street. And wow...not a slob in the bunch.

2,118 posts later, I am still at it. Day after day...I must be crazy. According to my stats, here are my Ten Most Popular Posts. Apparently, I'm not the only crazy one.

Thanks for sharing this journey with me. I have no idea if I can continue another 6 years on this, or whether there will be changes, but I can say that I surely appreciate all of the fun and opportunities that this blog has presented to me.

See more vintage & current Disneyland photos at my Disneyland website.

Congratulations on your 6th anniversary. While I’ve only been following your blog in the last few months, I’ve been visiting your Daveland site for a long time. Thanks for all the hard work you've put into this. I’ll enjoy it for as long as it lasts.

Dave. Your blog is a daily thing for me ever since you contacted me regarding the Flight Circle. at that time, I went back and read every post to catch up, and haven't stopped reading since.

You deserve the Oscar for "body of work" on this one, and MANY people would miss it greatly if it went away.

Don't give up, you won't regret it.

Congratulations Dave. That's a long time to sustain such a high level of output and quality.

Add my name to the list of people who reads everyday and greatly appreciates what you do.

I credit you and Major Pepperidge with saving what remains of my sanity, and that's the truth.
