Post number fifty and off to a good start, fifty is supposed to be some sort of milestone I suppose or a good starting point depending on how you look at it, or how old you are.
Fifty will be my age after my birthday in June and on my blog I have been sharing bits and pieces of those last fifty years within the last fifty posts, I promise there will be more to come in the next fifty and beyond.
So since I have been throwing around the number fifty and I yet to have fifty followers let me mention a few folks who have made this blog a whole lot more than worthwhile:
My very first follower was Susie at Life According to Dr. Susie Q, Susie was also the first one to comment on a post and has been there for every one since. Susie is a good friend and her blog along with all the ones on my Favorite Blogs list are well worth a visit.
My number fifty comment on a post came from my buddy Ron at Vent….a series of takes, Ron is also there for all of my posts and his sense of humor is something we all look forward to and appreciate:
The number Fifty comment came on my post Lord Have Mercy and here it is:
Awesome tribute, Jimmy!
I really got a sense of who your grandmother was from your words. And I have feeling that I would have loved her! I really enjoyed reading the whole thing about making snow ice cream because I never heard of that before.
It's true what you shared about the lessons taught by our elders, and to never be afraid to ask questions because the answers will be given to you in a way you will ALWAYS remember and appreciate.
Beautiful post, buddy!
My number one reason for this blog started out as a place to rant, rave, and vent on the news and just anything that was on my mind at the time, but it turned into a place to share some of my family and friends with you, I have made quite a few friends here and look forward to this as just a beginning.
My wife Cindy is the background for a lot of the posts and I do poke a little fun at her expense, I added her picture as the background picture for the blog and thank her for listening to all of my posts before they are released to you, and with this said she is my #1.
I really wanted to list everyone here and thank everyone for coming along for the ride, but will ask a favor, if you are reading this take a look at the list of blogs to the left and give them all a visit because we all feed off of each other so to say and from each others stories and poems come reminders and ideas for stories of our own, we are all in this together and I want to Thank You all.
