Starting The Second Hundred

I started out here as Just My Opinion, I wanted to jump in with a new blog and just wing it with no actual subject matter or even a subject to stick with, it felt kind of good to just be able to speak my mind and tell a little about myself and my family. I actually started with Blogger back in June of 2005 and have done a few blogs including one on Living with Diabetes and another that concentrates on Southern Heritage and Civil War History, the only problem with those is that each post had to be on the subject or it just didn’t look right, I thought I could bypass that with a post every once in a while titled Just My Opinion and to make a long story short this really didn’t work either and that is where the original title for Jimmy’s Opinion came in. I began looking at buying a domain name for myself and Just My Opinion was taken, my blogspot name is jimmysopinion so there you go the name as it should have been to start with because Just My Opinion is just that so we became Jimmy’s Opinion.

Jimmy’s Opinion has taken a lot of you through a few of my vents on various subjects, Gopher Hunting, Elvis sightings, wooden Indians, roller coasters, bachelor parties, weddings, horses, chickens, road trips, genealogy, diabetic situations causing me to wake up with another woman, kissing Snoopy and most of all a lot of fun with my wife Cindy and our Family.

Speaking of Family a few of you have been here from the start and remain to this day, a few of you are new followers and I hope you remain well past the big 200, 300, and so on, all of you in this little group are Family so to say at least you are Jimmy’s Opinion Family in my eyes and I want to thank you all for sticking with me because I do Love blogging with all of you and look forward to continuing on as you all make it worth it to Cindy and I.

If you haven’t figured out what I am getting at as of yet this is kind of a blogging landmark, highlight, birthday, heck I don’t know what to call it other than to tell you all this is my 100th Post, it may not be that big a deal but I was kind of impressed to see number 99 on my last one.

For a little fun I counted to see which comment was number 100 because comments are where all of you get to step in and tell me what you think, and I have been so thankful for the comments, suggestions, poking of fun, and encouragement all of you have given me, now this counting process is about official as I can possibly be I didn’t count mine and lucky number 100 is a fine example of the fun this blog has become, SuziCate from The Water Witches Daughter  commented on Oh To Be Twenty One

SuziCate said... I'm still laughing at Ron sending in Nikki the stripping troll doll...soo not what they had in mind!!! Would not want to do twenties over again. Loving life now! The only way I'd ever want to do any of it over is to be able to take the wisdom I have now with me!

Now if this example doesn’t make you want to stick around to see what will be next I don’t know what will, so stick around for the beginning of the second hundred and Thank You for being there for the first.


  1. Congrats on your 100th post! I have always enjoyed reading you and will be staying around for the next 100. Peace.

  2. Thank You MC,

    It is a pleasure having you in our little family here :^)

  3. I remember my 100th post well! It was such a milestone, as will 200 and 300. I know your excitement! This is really incredible.
    I look forward to many, many more opinions and posts from you. You brighten my day by being real and honest. You never hesitate to say it like it is. I am so happy to have met you and your family.
    Here's to you and your lovely blog home! Cheers!

  4. Thank You Angelia,

    Milestone is the word I was trying to think of when I wrote this one Ha Ha see that just proves how important you all are to me, I do appreciate you coming along for the ride and I look forward to following you along as I do enjoy your blog too.

  5. And I have enjoyed all 100!!!! I feel like I know you 100 times better now.

  6. Congratulations on reaching 100! You don't look a day over 35!

    Now, you gotta remember I'm old and my memory isn't very good, but why can't I remember you "waking up with another woman?" Which post is that story in, so I can refresh my memory.

  7. Congratulations!!! I am proad to be in your family and will surely stick around for many 100's to come!

    Ms.A has a good eyebrows raised on that phrase, so now you must spill.

  8. Well I jumped on the train a bit late, yet I get to be on for the next leg of the journey. Woot!!

  9. Wow, I just realized I had my 100'th post early this month!
    I am proud to be stickin' with ya!

  10. BRAVO!!!!!

    applause, applause, applause!!!

    CONGRATULATIONS, Jimmy. I am sooooooooo happy and excited for you. You're 100th post!!!!

    Meeting you and Cindy has been an absolute delight and joy. You make blogland extra-special! I look forward to reading you for the next 100, and next!

    And as a surpise gift, I'm sending Nikki over to your house for a FREE private dance!


  11. Waking Up With Another Woman

    Hey Susie, You have been with me from the start of this one and I don’t plan on you going anywhere else now, the ride has just begun so they say :^)

    Hey Ms A, I’m just a day or two over thirty five now Ha Ha half way to 100 anyways :), I posted the link back to that story at the top so jump back and give it a look and let me know what you think.

    Heather, Thank You so much for coming along for the ride I am proud to have you in our little family too, click the link above to take a walk back with Ms A.

    Lynne, It’s an honor to have join us I’m sure glad you grabbed a ride with our family here.

    Good Morning Joe, Congrats on your 100th also my friend it’s been a good ride and I look forward to what’s ahead for all of us.

    Ron, My good Friend you were one of the first after Susie to accept me here and your comments are always a blessing for both Cindy and I, I appreciate the friendship you have shown both of us and we will be looking for Nikki’s arrival Ha Ha.

  12. Congrats on 100! It IS a milestone, so celebrate it. A lot of bloggers give up before they get that far. I, for one, am glad you didn't, because I really enjoy your blog. Keep up the good work, and happy blog birthday!

  13. Thank You Kristy, I think the reason a lot of bloggers give up before 100 is because they get stale on their content, one subject can get old pretty quick but with good people like you following and just talking about life in general gives us a reason to continue.

    Thank You for giving me a reason to go on, this is a blessing.

  14. Congrats! Proud to be your 100th commenter. Love your stories, Jimmy. You write from the heart, sometimes, you make me smile, sometimes laugh, sometimes you bring tears to my eyes, sometimes you make me think.

  15. Thank You so much SuziCate for being one of the first to follow along and comment, your support has made me see that all of this is worthwhile and I was tickled to see you as the 100th commenter :^)

    I appreciate the friendship you have shown to me.

  16. Congratulations and salutations my friend!!!
    Keep 'em coming...

  17. Good Morning Pat,

    Thank You Sir and will do :^)

  18. Congrats on your 100th post! When you get to 500 you get to spout off and boss people around!

  19. Hey Betty,

    When I get to 500 the Bossy bar will have probably been raised :^)


Thanks for stopping by, jump in and tell me what you think, or just say Hi, I really appreciate your comments.
