Oh My Goodness!


I can't believe there are now 200 people following this thing. Of course I know that most of them probably don't even remember who I am, but still...  Wasn't it just several months ago, that I  had about ten followers?

To those of you who actually look at my blog on a regular, or semi-regular basis. I thank you! I consider most of you, much more than "followers" and I value your comments, support, and friendship...  Thanks!

I hope I look as stunned and cute as you do when I get to 200 followers! Congratulations! - G

The Illustrious D said...

That moustache is out of control. Also, way to coordinate it with your wardrobe. And also your backsplash. Kinda.

buffalodick said...

I have few ways of tracking..I mainly go by comments...

M. D. Jackson said...

Well, you're welcome!

I'm sorry, you are... who?

Joe Cap said...

I think I make that same expression every day when I look in the mirror in the morning.
I go "whoah!!! Yikes!"
I think you should be surprised that you have ONLY 200 followers.
I am surprised you don't have more.

DrSoosie said...

I am so happy for you! I feel lucky to have hit the 40 mark on mine and don't really see it going beyond there! I love your blog, photos and commentary. Thanks for keeping it interesting. Than is why so many follow!!

RA said...

Congratulation on your 200!
Don't quit your dayjob, however, not for acting anyway! You don't look a bit surprised in the photo, more like cooing "moooore!". Cutely cooing, but still. :D

Naturedigital said...

Congratulations Patrick. I want to see your face again when you reach 1000. Which will not be far away.
Well done my friend.
Costas

Nat said...

Brenda's Arizona said...

Wow, is that you in the photograph? Totally bizarre, just like your stories/recollections!

Good job. Go for 500 followers now!

SquirrelQueen said...

Great photo Pat but don't look so shocked. You have a great blog and your reader count will continue to rise.

Congrats on the 200!

Congrats on the 200 ..

Now who could forget you ?
The blog is super and you are priceless.....

The Vegetable Assassin said...

Haha, that's a photo for a caption competition, Sir.

I follow you on my Reader. I follow everyone on my Reader. That's why I never show up on people's followers list. I'm stealth. I'm a stalker. I am watching you. Buwahahaha!

High Five!

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

You got to that number quicker than I did because you give the people what they want in an effortless way. May you find another 200 half as fast.

Arjan said...

I think there are a bunch more..because I'm sure it doesn't count the people like me who use a simple webbrowser feed (Internet explorer..yes..IE sucks blabla, that's not the point ;) )

congrats on 201 followers + the rest :D

Mainland Streel said...

Yay! Congratulations, Pat! You were my first follower, and I'm proud to be one of your many readers. :)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

People like your blog.... What else do I need to say???? It's amazing how many followers I have whom I have NEVER EVER heard from. What I like are the comments... When someone doesn't comment, I don't know if they have been to my blog or not. Oh Well---ain't this blogging just loads of fun?????? ha

I am enjoying your Japan pictures... Glad nobody was 'using' the urinals when you snapped the picture... HA
