#H50 … A Summer Shot of Kool-Aid..Reliving Season One Memories

Hey gang!  Sure hope you’re all enjoying your summer so far.  In less than two weeks summer hiatus will be over for our beloved cast and crew of Five-0 as they will be back in production for another great season.  I’m absolutely positive Season 6 will be another fantastic one for all of us to enjoy.  I’ve been taking a bit of an hiatus myself from blogging this summer.  Well, to be honest, I’ve actually started a couple of blogs over the past few weeks but, each time, before I had the chance to really get into them, other bloggers wrote very similar posts and got them online before I could.  Not wanting to look like I was copying from anyone, I just ditched mine.  Honestly, they pretty much said all the exact same things anyway.  No harm… no foul… ya snooze… ya lose… and I’ve been doing a lot of snoozing this summer. Feels good, ya know?

Anyway, I was going through my computer the other day, cleaning up old files and creating new folders in preparation for the start of Season 6 when I ran across this.  Back in November 2014, in the days leading up to the 100th episode, I had a bit of fun on Twitter one night with a picspam of some of my favorite moments from Season 1.  I had totally forgotten I saved it as a blog draft but never posted it.  I thought it would be fun to look back again at what made our show such a winner from the very beginning as a bit of a summer treat.

This is the exact order of the picspam as posted back in November…not especially in any episode order, just my mind rambling as it usually does. Also, back in Season 1, I did very few of my own screen captures.  I’ve kept the watermarks intact on all photos that are not mine.  You’ll notice that a vast majority of them are from the now shuttered “AOLR” website.  I still miss those girls and their fantastic site!  Oh well…here it is…I hope you enjoy!
