TADA.....3,000TH POST.

When I started bogging in March of 2005 I don't think I thought any farther ahead then the next day. Who knew? My blog has changed so much from what it started out to be.It was mostly me bitching and cussing about Forest Gump aka George W Bush and how he had  fucked up Texas, and he was getting ready to fuck the entire United States..see..I told ya..Along with my rants about politics I also threw in some stuff about football and my little town of West and the 'haps that was going on here. I gave my opinion on everything and no one had to ask me what I thought ..I just told you. The good, the bad and the ugly. I gave you a year by year, blow by blow, run down on my life, and what was going on in those years..the music, the news, movies. Just a run down on life as I knew it..I told you all my secrets..some dirty, some just stupid..but you know it all. I have never held back any information. Some of it made me look like a pure jackass and some of it make me look like a fool..But it made you all laugh and that was good enough for me. Now ..going on 9 years..wow..(that's l a life time in real life)you not only know everything there is to know about me..you knew enough about my little town that you all felt the pain and agony that we all felt after the explosion. You took time and sent  money to make Christmas for my oldies very special..and your doing it again this year. The oldies really need something to make them feel special as this interruption in their life was heart breaking for them..They lost their home, they have lost friends and some lost family's..The deaths of those 15 touched everyone of us in one way or another..and it was so horrific to some that it depressed them to their death. We have lost over 25 residents since the explosion..that's in 6 months..way above average.
I would like to get back to what I started out doing..It's not easy finding all those cartoons and copying and posting them twice a week. Now that I'm not watching Abby (she's ruling day care) and have more time on my hands..I am going to try to do posting like I did in the beginning..One great thing is I've found Facebook which helped me find all my relatives..and you think I'm batshit? Oh you haven't seen anything yet.
What I really want to do with this 3,000th post is to thank you..thank you for sticking around for all these years..for commenting ..for being a huge part of my life and allowing me to come into your lives..stirring up a little crap along the way. Some of you are silent readers, don't know who you are or how long you've been here..and I thank you too...but I really do want to thank the ones that have become my family..like Nitwit, Leo, Sooner, Barbara, Jan, Debra, Karl, Rox, Tina, Nancy(several Nancy's)Vicki(several of them too)Lakota, Amy,and my Canaderian duo, Will and Laurent... too many to put here..but you all have staked out a piece of my heart and I will be grateful to you for the end of my life. I'm pushing (9 more days) 70(how the fuck did THAT happen?) and the older I get the more I appreciate the people who are in my life and how you have all taught me to appreciate what I have...Goddess bless each and every one of you..jac

Wow, someone who has been blogging longer than I have! I started in September 2005 with a little dog blog and a passion to show how important dogs (and cats, no offense to Dexter or Annie) were to our world. Loved hearing about Nate.

We made a connection early and it has grown through the years even though we are very opposite in many ways.

Also it is a tribute to my character that i have never mentioned "The catch" (Montana to Clark) and all the heartbreak that wrought on the state of Texas.

Thanks for all of your posts, the happiness and the tragedies you have shared with us and for introducing me to skunk eggs, dragging me into Facebook, and sharing your adorable babies.

Keep blogging, my friend, and I will keep reading.

3000 posts? 9 years? That must be some kind of record in the Blogosphere where blogs come and go very quickly! Congrats YDG and you know we love you too! I'll gladly read anything you post.

And I read all of them! :P
Ive been thinking of getting back into posting on my blog again. It's not like there hasn't been a lot of crap to rant about. But like Lewis Black once complained, Just when I put together a rant on one thing there are twenty other new rant worthy things to distract me.
I have had a new blog site saved for about three years that is what I'll use if I do.
It's not like I don't have the time...

That's an incredible accomplishment, and takes such dedication.

I look forward to the next 3,000 of your posts!

Congrats: and don't worry - seventy is not the new thirty, but it is the age of Aquarius - and it is beautiful.
