So, the "backfill blogging" thing didn't work out too well. People apparently forget, or don't have time, to go back to read the posts once they're filled in with background info. (Except for the exceptionally attentive Ronnie, bless her.)

Because I know my very small readership, and there ain't no way the alien stripper wouldn't have evoked some comment. :)

I was about to, but one of the tassels hit me in the head and knocked me out.

It wasn't till this morning that it occurred to me - "Same top post...wait! older ones might be backfilled too...(scroll scroll) duh-oh!"

I'll think to look on future occasions, but - just an idea - you could also update the posting time and bring a post back to the top when you backfill it...? If you backfill oldest-to-newest, they'll end up in the proper chronological order again. I guess you'd need to add the original date to the text for documentation purposes.

I went back and read them, but the commenting became somewhat daunting because of the volume involved. And I thought the alien stripper spoke for herself.

I liked the picture of the seagull, though, and I didn't notice it the first several times I saw that picture ...

The Alien stripper left me, for the first time in my life, speechless, lol.

Worthy responses all.

Sherwood, what can I say? The same thing happened to me.

NFTP, excellent suggestion, and if I try this again that's exactly what I'll do.

And Mike, excellent observation. And I can see how you could miss the seagull.

Sis, I only wish I'd been there to witness it.

And Dann - very much my bad! I did enjoy your comment on French aesthetics. (Very funny!)
