A Milestone Of Sorts...!


I noticed that I have somehow garnered 200 followers now!

That's pretty amazing to me, that such a following would find the time to sign up and be subjected to the (almost) daily ramblings of an old Hermit type such as myself!

I just wanted to say a great big "THANK YOU" to each and every one of you! Makes Blogging just a little more fun, if you know what I mean!

Sometimes this weekend, I'm going to be doing a little house keeping on the ol' blog, and I may remove some folks from the blogs list that seem to have gone inactive. If you notice your blog has been removed, don't take it personal, OK? Just let me know if you want to remain on the roll and I'll put you right back on...!

Again, I appreciate all the followers, and also all the folks that come by just to visit...followers or not! It means a lot to me!

That's all I had, but I invite all my friends, new and old, to come in for a cup of coffee! Just pull up a chair...and don't mind the cats, OK? OK!

I would be over for that coffee, but it's dang cold and dreary here this morning, so I have 3 cats attempting to lay in my lap to get warm and I can't move!

HermitJim said...

Hey Diane-Sage...
Don't worry, my friend! I'll make sure you stay on the Blog roll!

HermitJim said...

Hey AV...
Guess that there is so many different taste, that it's hard to decide what to follow!

I enjoy your blogs, but I only follow the one! Very good, IMHO.

Hey, thanks for coming by today, my friend!

Stephanie in AR said...

A day without coffee & the Hermit is an off day. Takes a smart hermit to figure out how to have so many friends without feeling too crowded.

HermitJim said...

Hey Stephanie...
Always room for one more on the patio...!

You know what they say "Friends are always welcome...family by appointment!"

Hey, I appreciate you coming by today, my friend!
