A Milestone This Day


Well, folks we will hit a milestone for this blog today. At some time during this day, the 10,000th visitor will enter this humble blog. I wish to thank each and every one of you that has visited my blog. I am also very grateful for those of you that consider the blog worthy of becoming regular visitors.

Grandpa was right pleased and a little embarrassed to find out that his little stories were enjoyed by so many of you. Grandma just giggled a bit and then teased grandpa about it but you could see how proud she was too.

A lot of subjects have been discussed, political, religious and of personal matters during this time. I hope that in discussing each of them that I have portrayed a philosophy that can be declared as consistent throughout.

My greatest pride though, is in each of you as you commented on any post that was written. They were respectful and I enjoyed reading and responding to them all, both ally and foe. I have found myself growing very fond of each of you because it was you that made this whole endeavor both, a labor of love and a joy to pursue.

Thank you, one and all.

That's wonderful, Griper! It looks as if I'm #10,001. :-)

I'm honored to be a reader of your blog, and equally honored that you read mine.

I started a new blog and had to start my count all over again from "1", Griper! It's sad because I've been running a blog a lot longer than you and was nearing the 100,000 mark at Dragon Lady's Den.

Congratulations on nearing 10,000! What's the prize for being the 10,000th visitor? ;)

I was hoping Grandma would come by to see your blog...and be #10,000.
T'would make Grandpa jealous. :)

grandma said that grandpa stopped being jealous the day he kicked a guy's butt for flirting with her and ended up sleeping in the barn that night. :)
