Yep, trust me, the old duck was a tad surprised as well. But this humble little blog past 1000 posts last week, with very little fanfare at that. Though I do think it is fitting that it was a jab politically, since when I started this little trip, that is kind of how I envisioned this blog would be. But, going on, I realized it is much more fun to include like then to be all liberal all the time.
I had planned a big celebration, at least when I realized at 750 that I was going to be reaching 1000 sooner rather then later. Unfortunately, that is really not fiscally responsible at this point, so it will have to wait for another milestone. The Duck thanks you for your patience.
But, in a small form of celebration, I am going to post the archive meme, which I think was started by The 108 and I was tagged for way way back by either Starrlight, Matt-Man or Bond, the three of them usually argue over who they will tag, so I can't keep it straight. By the way, as I was linking them, Bond and The108 have some great posts today that you may wanna wander into.
Ok, here are the official rules:
You must list five links to posts you have written then tag five other people. At least two of the people you tag must be newer acquaintances so that you get to know each other better . . . and don’t forget to read the archive posts and leave comments
I think I will forego the tagging part, but I do hope others of you do this and let me know that you did, going back can be fun sometimes.
Link 1 must involve Family
1.A little recap of the first time my parents visited the Future Mrs Duck and I.
Link 2 must involve Friends
2.Back to the Old Stomping grounds of Sparky Duck
Link 3 should be about you and what you are all about:
3.My Guilty Pleasures
Link 4 Must be about Something you love:
4.Easiest one to pick
And finally link 5 can be about whatever you want:
5.I had written posts before this one, but this was one of the first ones where I felt I was getting my voice.
So there it is, post #1008. Thanks to all the readers and commenters that now make this whole blogging experiment alot more fun then it used to be.
